This place has such authentic Chinese food, it is hard to beat. Also, the prices here are phenomenal. I haven't have food here that I thought was lacking or was "un-Chinese." This is a more casual place and is by no means fancy, but is a good place for good food.

Very nice noodle dishes...like the dan dan noodles and the veggie chow mein. The tofu with leeks and black bean sauce & jalapenos is a wonderful dish--very unusual. Shrimp dishes are quite good too.

This is a great little place that is always packed. And here's a tip. If you're looking for authentic Chinese cuisine, look for a place that is filled with the older generation of Chinese. If they give the thumbs up, you better believe it is good. Noodle soups come out piping hot.

There is convenient parking in the lot right behind the restaurant. Only qualm is that they run a bar behind the restaurant and since it's impossible to smoke anywhere in public, a favorite place for the smokers is in the breezeway between the parking lot and the restaurant. You get your share of second hand smoke on your way to the restaurant, but that can be avoided by avoiding the breezeway and using the front entrance off Castro.

This restaurant didn't have the greatest food around, but it wasn't bad either. The prices are very reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. I've only been there once, so maybe something other than the cashew shrimp, kung pao chicken, or noodle soup bowls are better.

While I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for "fine" cuisine, I do think for the price and the quality of food it's a good deal. Service is kinda so-so but I find that this is pretty much standard for a restaurant of this genre.

Pros: Reasonably priced, Food is fresh, Service is prompt

Cons: Waitstaff a bit terse
