This is a very pleasant Chinese restaurant on Polk Street between Broadway and Pacific I had Hunan spicy beef, which had both heat and subtlety. We shared Szechuan broccoli which was excellent, a very tasty dish. Same with Kun Pao prawns. All had the clean...More

We eat here every time we're in San Francisco. The food is delicious and there is plenty of it! The restaurant itself is quite worn out, but it doesn't matter because the service is good and the food is fabulous - especially the lemon chicken....More

The garlic chicken I just ordered is crap! The chicken tastes funny and I can't eat it. I don't think it's cooked either as it was lukewarm. Paid and left and probably never returning.

After a day out cycling we grabbed a late dinner here. The service was a tad slow but the good food and friendly waitress more than made up for it.

I walked into this restaurant and ordered the hunan beef with brown rice. When I got it back to my room it was steaming hot and even spicier than I expected. Unfortunately, they gave me white rice and I had stomach problems all day. Maybe...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
