We where walking aimlessly around Chinatown looking for somewhere to eat lunch when we found this place by chance. (We only saw the TripAdvisor sticker when we were eating.) We decided to eat here since this looks most decent--and English-speaking-friendly--among other eateries we peeked in. The place is interesting being in underground but is definitely clean. The food is very delicious and it makes me miss home. Flavorful, savory and filling. Will definitely go back here next time!

We asked where to find the most authentic Chinese food in Chinatown. A wise person said, "Go where you see mostly Chinese people eating." This is it! So, so good and so, so much. We ate the dinner for six and the food just kept coming. I've never eaten better Chinese. The restaurant itself isn't much, look for the down staircase. It's below street level.

Not your 1st thought for a Chinese Restaurant (underground), but definitely worth the simplicity! Try the Honey Walnut Prawns(shrimp) & Chicken Chow Mein.

Down those unglamorous metal stairs is a pretty standard Chinese restaurant with friendly and efficient staff. It's not dressed up for the tourists but did have a good few Chinese people in.

The restaurant is simple and has good chinese food. Haven't been to SF Chinatown in a few years and was looking for somewhere to eat now that Sam Woo's is closed. We came on a Saturday night and the place quickly filled up with local Chinese families with several generations enjoying a meal together. Very few people in the restaurant were speaking in English. We ordered a family style meal for three. This is a good value and probably more food than you can eat. The food here is fresh, tasty and met my expectations.This restaurant accepts credit cards (which is a plus in Chinatown). Enjoy!
