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.
  • Fried Shrimp Dumpling is a good starter.
  • Now getting less crowded during peak dim sum hours. The food is just above average
  • Best Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. Right in the heart of China town. Authentic and delicious. Obama even came here when he was president!
  • Go for lunch -dim sum is their specialty- lot of traffic so its not a worry that the food is sitting out a while- very fresh
  • The steamed turnip cake
  • It was my first time having dim sum, really good! Good to come with a group and share
