Foursquare Tips

  • President Obama stopped in the Great Eastern restaurant in the Chinatown section of San Francisco.
  • Because OBAMA ate here!
  • One of the most popular Chinese restaurants in SF Chinatown. Their egg tarts have centers that really taste of egg, and their dimsum are exceptionally good. Even President Obama recommends it.
  • Worst Chinese I've ever had. What was Obama thinking?
  • Amazing potstickers!
  • Bathrooms are downstairs and clean!
  • Overall a very mediocre Chinese restaurant, though the sesame chicken is good.
  • Shrimp dumplings are delicious
  • Try the Glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf
  • Try the Assorted Dim Sum
  • Wait is usually over 30 mins. Good won't regret.
  • SF
  • Come with a group of 5. That's the magic number... Puts you ahead of all smaller parties for their big tables. Kinda BS, but what you gonna do?
  • All of the shrimp dim sum items are great! And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
  • Very authentic dim sum but not the best. Long waits, especially for dim sum on the weekends.
  • dim sum and seafood.
  • Pretty good dim sum, can be pretty crowded though
  • President visited here. Popular among Asian people.
  • ...
  • 40 min wait for Hunan Home, so we decided to check this place out. Amazing fried chicken in a spicy sauce (general tso's), moo shu pork and potstickers. So good!
