The Location: Right off of Grant. It's up a flight of carpeted stairs to the right (there's also an elevator). It looks like a hole in the wall but trust me it was anything but! The Service: Everyone was suoer friendly! The manager was kind enough to take my dying phone and charger and plug it in behind the bar.... More

Just as you walk in you are instantly in a different country. The host keeps announcing names and calls out whatever said in Chinese and Finally they get to you. Food all... More

I have been to SF many, many times and have been to countless restaurants. We consistently return to the Oriental Pearl, however, because honestly it is terrific. It doesnt look like much on the outside, but inside is very nice. Compared to the "tourist trap" Chinatown restaurants, the food here is fantastic. The service is very friendly too. I will... More

So impressed that he has given us such great recommendations for a gluten free meal! I can't believe that there was no wait! This place smells delicious! I suppose if I dislike the food I will amend my review, otherwise assume it was as amazing as I predict it will be !

I chose this restaurant in all of China town because my gluten free app recommended it. They do not have a gluten free menu, but they understand what it is and will make recommendations. I do not have celiac so I don't know if it is safe for those who do. I ordered prawns with honey walnuts and chicken with... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
