We bought some furniture from them in August 2010. 2 of the 3 items arrived but we have yet to receive the $400 table with 4 chairs we paid for, despite the many phone calls to various people at the store. We are now complaining to the Department of Consumer Affairs and the Better Business Bureau and will sue them if we do not receive them.

I purchased a Mammoth Ivory carved tusk from Bonamiko's. I did have some problems with he sales staff. They were over enthusiastic and make some promises that were not true. I could not return the item as promised without paying 18 percent restock fee. I advise anyone that has questions regarding returns or exchanges to speak with Menashe the owner. He is very personable and a good man. If he says something, you can trust him to follow through. Ultimately, He was able to make the me happy and save the day.

1/13/2011--Believe the poor reviews--this place is absolutely dodgy. Poor quality items, huge markups with "unbelievable" "discounts"-- still using the same schtick: "selling the building, making it a jewelry store, need to liquidate, auction happening in 2 hours, would rather sell to someone who appreciates the item, grouping items together into packages, blah blah blah."

Truth is: I was taken. I paid $2000 for stuff that is maybe worth $200 retail (add an extra $200 for shipping), just poor quality crap all around. In their defense: they did ship quickly, and packing was good--your junk will arrive at your home in perfect condition. But it doesn't change that it's junk.

At first, I did get rung up for a lot more, and after doing some research it took an hour to reverse the damages. Contrary to the previous reviews, once these guys get a "bite", they don't like to let go. It eventually took the threat of calling in the credit card companies and voiding everything to get them to void the most expensive sale, only 2 hours after it had happened, and not before I'd been walked through all 4 of their stores again, in their hopes that I'd pick something else out to make up the difference, despite my insistence I just wanted out. (This all happened after we rung up our purchase at 5 pm, so there was no way the items had been shipped yet. But I heard all that, and more, as they tried to do everything they could to avoid losing that cash).

Basically: avoid this place, unless you think you're paying only 10 percent of what the item is actually worth, because then you'll approach the actual retail value. But these guys won't let it go for that (when I eventually went back to get my cash, they still tried to offer me the same stuff, only 50% less than they had originally agreed to sell it to me--i.e., giving me some of the money back. That's when I knew it was totally bogus, because it was pulling tooth and nails to get that "original" "lowest", "insane" price.)

Nov 22, 2010: I bought several pieces at this store and was very pleased with my purchases. A bronze piece along with a desk and several other items were included in my purchase. All of it was being shipped to my home since I had flown to San Francisco. I was considering purchasing additional items and decided to check out their website that night. They did not have a website, but I did find muliple reviews that scared me after reading. I worried all night because I believed I was taken advantage off. On the otherhand I checked out the Better Business Bureau site and they were giving them an A. I decided to return to the store to cancel my order and ask for a refund. I fiqured if the bad reviews were true, they would not cancel my order or issue a refund. I was wrong, they were more than willing to cancel. Since the items had shipped, I would have to pay for shipping, but I was ok with that. After discussing my concerns with the staff, they answered my questions to my satisfaction and I did not cancel. I am waiting for my items to arrive. I don't regret my purchases, but I am anxious for everything to arrive safely. After everything arrives, I will update the website.

Update: 12/1/2010 - I am happy to report that all but one item was delivered yesterday. The pieces delivered were packed extremely well and survived the trip from San Francisco to OKC. Still waiting on a desk that I purchased. Called the store today to let them know everything arrived safely and to thank them for the speedy delivery. My final piece is coming from a different location so it will take longer to receive. They were kind enough to check on the status as I planned to give the desk as a gift. After the final piece arrives, I will update again.

BEWARE! They are now called BONAMIKO'S and MICHAELS located at the Gatewway of CHINA TOWN These guys are really good at what they do...SCREWING the customer. Like so many we where told they where going out of business and changing their fathers store to a Jewelry store and that they where having an auction in the next hour or so. Funny but we where there for over 2 HOURS and No Auction! They follow you around and write down items they think you like and then the PRESSURE! Oh we will "GIVE" you the "in stock" "MASS PRODUCTION" items for 90% off but will have to ship them. The items that they pressure you into that are in the store and "RARE" will be shipped out immediatly. They took our 300.00 deposit and after getting home and doing some checking we where not comfortable with what we heard and so we told them we just wanted the Mass Production items and they told us they came from the manufacturer and had no idea when they would be shipped. ODD when they said they owned a warehouse full of these items. So the KEPT our 300.00 and never recieved ANYTHING, we cannot get them to even respond to our inquiries! One in store item that they wrote up was a JADE sculpture item and after reading that other customers had recieved FAKE jade sculptures we checked into them even further, and decided NOT to do the C.O.D for over 3,000.00 more. I agree with the person from the UK, this should NOT be allowed to go on in the USA!! These guys are crooks and need to be stopped! They have to feed on tourists because anyone that lives there would catch on to the scheme! They are also in with the two MICHAELS stores a few doors down on both corners, SAME thing there! Said Christies Acution house was coming to auction off the inventory so they would RATHER sell to a customer that would appreciate the item so they would give a FABULOUS deal! BS! RUN AWAY!! Contact anyone that will listen including TV, RADIO, NEWSPAPERS!!! IKf I lived in S.F I would try to get an EXPOSE' on them with hidden camera's!!

there are nine shops in SF are the same Italian family - all those negative reviews, everything they say, I have experienced - our father 90 , has just died, travelled the world, bought from the forbidden city etc, etc etc tax man coming, got to get rid, setting up a diamond buisness already got one in Manhatten, - DA's office not much help unless your invoice says jade or mammoth - most pieces will be bone of some sort, jade certainly won't be jade - whatever you have bought will only be woth 10's of dollars at most. All lies, lies, lies and more lies - beware, beware - in the UK they would never be able to get away with this in a downtown part of a famous city - welcome to free enterprise in the widest sense USA style - your consumer protection laws are very weak. I was well and truly done. As one previous person commented, they should all be in jail.
Will you be next?!! Leaves a very nasty taste in ones mouth - will I ever come back to the USA after this experience?

adding more after seeing the latest review

Every word here is true - they should be prosecuted and shut down. All the chinese artifacts are sourced from a company called SPLENDID JADE CO.,LIMITED. They deal in artifacts created for the tourist trade - airport antiques - you can see a customs consignment of crates in 2007 which were delivered to Michaels. Most of the bone carvings are coming via this company from Beijing, again stuff for the tourist trade. I went to the police - didn't want to know, went to the DA's office, but their hands are tied unless you have good documentation and you won't because the bastards know what they are doing, went to the FBI - they were interested but as they said if you prosecute one of them, another will take their place. Consumer laws in the USA need to be tightened up with a 14 day 'cooling off period' as in the UK. I would help with any investigation.

Pros: looks fantastic - posh shop

Cons: all a con - everything is a fake

Similarly to other people who wrote here, we got a similar sales pitch. I think that there are some people who will find it off-putting, others will find it intriguing. After traveling the world for a while, this pitch was nothing unusual.

Bottom line - for us that is - we got what we paid for. It did take them a few days more than promised to deliver the items. But, we received everything, with tons of packing and wrapping material.

Someone here mentioned that they sell fake things. We bought a mammoth tusk. We took it to a professional to examine it, and it is exactly what they told me. Not sure though what the others purchased.

They told us the owner who was 90s and just passed away, so they have to sell everything in the store. They told us the dealers are coming to the store in 45 min. We have to buy the items before they come. They make it seems like we got a great deal, reducing the price from $5200 to $350.
We bought a jade horse and found out that it is fake. It is made out of marble like material.
The store is also rated' F' in BBB.

I wish I should have done my homework first.

Two months ago, bought two items here for believe good price. Item selling person told us price of item was very large. He could give discount because he want to sell all items from store.

After long discussion, price seemed very good, less than 20% of start!

After delay, afraid that items would not arrive, but items come. Art dealer relative immediately understood the fake. Paid to have other inspected to see, it was real. Even if I go to California, then no return of any item and do not know what to do!!!

Think that store sells many fake and real items, but all for high price. Experience buying person only!

Prices are not low at all at this gallery.
However, it's worth it. The pieces that I bought were delivered with a week. A few glass items that I was worried about, whether they will arrive in one piece, arrived in perfect condition.

I'm a simple man, with a simple plan. walked around town on St. Partick's, and walked in. Bought two paintings for my office. The rest of the furniture doesn't really fit my home/office/personal taste...The paintings are great, and were delivered in no time.
Four stars because there's no access to wheelchairs, except for the first floor. And for me, there weren't a lot of items that I would consider having.

drove up to SF on a saturday, and walked around town with a few friends. we entered this store in china town. there's a great selection of home furnishings. We really liked some of the paintings, and one of my friends fancied a dinning room table. I personaly got only a painting, but my friends told me that the delivery guys came to her summer house and assembled it exactly where she wanted it and helped her to move other furniture around until she was satisfied.
I've read the other reviews here, and I was a bit shocked because my expreience with this store was just perfect. no bulshit, no headaches, we spent a nice amount of money there, and felt that we got a wonderful service for it.

We happened on this store after noticing the 70/90% sale sign displayed on the window. The store is packed full of merchandise, which at first glance appears to be of nice quality. Upon entering the store you are immediatley approached by aggresive sales tactics. Be prepared for sales tactics far worse than any encountered on any used car lot. The sales staff follows you throughout the store making mental notes of items that peak your interest. The majority of items are outrageously priced which are later modified to lower level. My wife was interested in a horse figurine that was priced at $11,000 dollars. After several minutes of pressure tactics the price was lowered to $500.00. The deal was then more attractable by including other trinkets that had also caught my wifes attention. The sales person was told that we were not interested in the items and they apply relentless pressure, to the point that you felt shamed into buying. We agreed to purchase the alleged jade figurine, along with a painting and a vase for a total of $1100.00. We completed the transaction and picked up the items about 1 hour later. When we returned the items were neatly wrapped especially the figurine. The figurine was wrapped into a wooden box and taped closed with heavy duty mailing tape. We arrived to our friends home and decided to unwrap the figurine since we lived in the State of Nevada and because we felt uneasy about the purchase. Upon removing the item we noticed that the figurine was damaged and that the finish on the figurine was terrible. It had been coated with a clear resin that was bubbled and clear dried drip marks were cleary visible throughout the figurine. We decided to take the item to a gemologist and were immediately told that the item was a fraud and not jade. We drove back to the store the next morning and contact was made with the owner and he was told that the figurine was a fraud. We demanded our money back and they immediately credited our account. Stay away...

Cons: Deceptive prey on tourists

Me and my kids happened to enter this store on one of our trips to our family in the bay area. The variety of things is amazing, and stunning. Eventually, we bought two lamps and a stone table. There was in fact a delay with the shipment, but it turned fine. Unfortunatley, I have only one lamp left (9yo boy running around the house has its toll), and we use the table in our backyard. We are really happy with what we purchased there. I decided to add my review because I happened to read these a few days ago and it started to trouble me. So I have looked online for the artist that made the table, and saw nothing wrong there.
Maybe these guys just weren't lucky. I sure had my experience of unpleasent deals in my life. Maybe it was there turn. All I can say for me and my family is that we were happy when we bought it, and were even happier now that these items have served us for several months.

I want anyone else that had issues with Rasoyli's to please get a hold of the DA. And tell them your experience with them. They are helping me with an issue right now. Moses Hakim who works for Menashe Rasoyli's was so pushy, boy what a piece of work. I should have known!! They price every thing really high and come down way more than is possible. Menashe Rasoyli lives in a condo on Nobb Hill, so everyone knows how there money is being spent! He wanted to FREE SHIP my purchase, thank God I took it home with me. I will let every one know the out come of my ordeal with these con artists as soon as I can. Please, let the DA know of your experiences!!!! Thank you, let's get these guys now!!!! Lynn Liguori

Stay clear. Do not go in. Merchandise is not authentic. Misrepresent everything. All cheap reproductions at high prices to make you think they are authentice. Nothing worth more than .10 on the dollar. All items purchased turned out to be fakes. No money back. No returns. How stupid I was. Pretty pretty fakes.

Cons: All cons. Dishonest people.

We happened into this store while on vacation. At the time, they sold antiques and collectibles and the owner, John Rasoyli, said he was selling off everything to open up again with jewlery. He showed us some Asian bone carvings and when we expressed interest in one, he claimed it was rare (one of only 3) and old (60-80 yrs). He offered to let us have it at a great discount (yea, we should have known) and threw in a couple of cabinets. Turns out we never got the cabinets shipped to us despite calls and emails. The carving is available through an ebay merchant by the same artist and is a third of what we paid - very common, apparently. We're currently trying to get our money back but I'm not hopeful.

Pros: wide range of stuff

Cons: The owner is a con artist
