  • Check out this new Chinese spot in the Embarcadero Center. The sprawling space here makes it one of the biggest restaurants in SF, so be sure to bring your whole work team.
  • Great Cantonese food in SF. Appetizer Apple Wood Roasted Peking Duck.
  • Beautiful views of the Bay. Peking Duck was great, prepared table side just like in Beijing.
  • Nice view of the Ferry Building and Bay
  • Fantastic xiaolongbao, har gao, shu mai, and those egg yolk custard buns (even if they do look like tangerines!)
  • Peking duck prep at the tablemust try for a larger group
  • Dim Sum is authentic, but really expensive. Can't justify the additional costs. Heavy on the msg.
  • Assuming you already will order the xiao long bao, the dan dan noodle is the next must-order item! Perfect bounce in the noodles, great heat, rich flavor.
  • Very good desert.
  • Over-priced dim sum! Stir fried Pea-shoots costs $18! And the dim sum served was not even warm :(
  • The Beef Tenderloin with Black Pepper sauce was really good, as was the sweet and sour pork and the Peking duck. Get the Japanese mochi for dessert!
  • Average food and average atmosphere
  • Dim sum... Kung Pao... Eggplant dishes
  • Peking duck was only ok. Skin wasn't very crispy, & pancakes were undercooked/doughy - tore while server wrapped them. Making the remaining duck into soup is $10 extra. Soup was really yummy, though!
  • Unsure if it was because it was a Sunday, but they told us that Peking duck would only be ready for dinner at 7pm. Plan accordingly!
  • Bar service was excellent. Christopher was delightfully friendly. Food was served quickly and was tasty.
  • Worse service esperience ever! Guys, check your reviews, and work on them! Your food is good, but your service!
  • Get a window seat!
  • $2 hot water no warnings. Dislike. Some food is very salty.
  • Duck so good
