Great place to eat. Friendly people and delicious food. We liked the sweet and sour shrimp and the sizzling rice soup. Also must try the Mango drink. They deliver to SFSU !

Got delivery from Emmy's on Friday evening and the food was great. Especially likes the Mongolian Beef and Kung Pao Chicken. Will definitely do again when I am back in San Francisco.

Been going to this restaurant since the 1980's when they were first located on Monterey Avenue. I have gone to this new place on Ocean Avenue a dozen times in the last few years. I visited last month and won't be going back again. It was lunchtime on a Sunday I think and my family and I were the only... More

I always go here after a night of having fun. It's open until about 11 pm or midnight. I always get the pork fried rice and potstickers. Yummy. I have heard some not so good things about this place but every time it have gone have had a great experience.

This is a hole in the wall gem in my neighborhood that I can't get enough of. I love to both eat there and get delivery. Delivery is free and they even throw in an extra item. You start with free soup. The items are so big that we always have to take some home. The quantity is about 50%... More

This area of the city is not that rich in restaurants. Emmy's offers good solid chinese food. I particularly liked the sauteed fish with asparagus, while some other people like the salted baked fillet of sole (It's actually fried, don't know why they call it baked.) The sauteed veggies are pretty good. The decor is kind of nonexistent. Not spectacular,... More

The Ocean Palace Restaurant is no longer at this address. The new restaurant there, Emmy's Restaurant, serves neighborhood Chinese cuisine. It is a small neighborhood family style restaurant, that is open until 10:30pm weeknights, 11pm weekends. The low key decor reflects the family style genre. The portions are generous and the prices average. The food was...very good, the mu shus...good,... More
