Jai Yun has been rated as a top 10 Chinese restaurant in the US. R&G Lounge is also excellent. There are many good Chinese restaurants outside Chinatown. Are your choices restricted to Chinatown?

May I suggest you read the top questions on the right. There is one about DimSum and Chinese Food.

Great Eastern on Jackson near Grant and Asia Garden on Broadway (could be on Pacific)

are pretty good especially for dim sum.

Bund on the 600 block of Jackson is very good for Shanghai food.

If you want to eat at R&G for dinner, be sure to book in advance (or be prepared to wait).

Yee's 1174 Grant. Tip was given to me years ago by Swing Cha. He was right. Best in town. Chinatown that is.

R&G Lounge for seafood, Great Eastern for dim sum lunch or Cantonese dinner at a reasonable price. City View is also good for dim sum, though it's a bit more expensive.

I'm a fan of dive restaurants, but find Yee's setup and food handling practices to be just plain gross. The restaurant inspectors with the San Francisco Department of Public Health seem to agree as their June 2012 inspection of the restaurant gave the place a 75 (scores of 71-85 = "Needs Improvement"), which is actually an improvement over their December 2011 score of 65 (scores <=70 = "Poor").

Kind of agree, Caffiend. That, and the many plates of food just sitting out in the open deterred me from staying for a meal. And usually I don't have a problem in Chinatown!
