Fantastic Chinese Food served in a friendly and unpretentious restaurant. The food is very tasty. We really enjoyed the speciality dishes such as pork with tree ears and celery. The clay pots are also delicious. Lots of family gatherings happen here and the owners are welcoming.

The bitter melon with beef is delicious-the beef is very tender. We all enjoy the dry braised green beans. The seaweed soup is very good. Everything we have ordered is... More

If you happen to find yoursefl in the area of Golden Gate Park, Dragon River is a good place for lunch. The food was tasty, not spectacular but good. In all fairness, we didn't sample any specialties, but only had inexpensive lunch specials.
