  • Nine dragons mural in the staircase by local s artist Leland Wong. Must see!
  • Pot Stickers are FANTASTIC here.
  • Super authentic Cantonese food! Strongly recommend. Huge portions too. Order the braised beef tendon or any of their noodles
  • Clay pot rice dishes
  • Lame expressionless sevice. Nothing stellar about the food. Won't be coming back.
  • The clay pot here is cheap and delicious! Way better than Capital up the street.
  • This Chinatown cafeteria has landed more than once on 7x7's Big Eat list for their salted fish and minced pork claypot. Also try their salt and pepper chicken wings.
  • I was at the grand opening downstairs, the stage show for vaudeville style talent, it was good. But upstairs, the food is was good like the shrimp and mushroom porridge that I like
  • Chow mein tastes great, fried rice is meh (too much vegetables).
  • A bit off the beaten track, authentic Chinese food! A good alternative to avoid tourist traps.
  • Tofu fish Claypot
  • "~ If you plan on going to the Utopia Cafe for some Clay Pot Rice you gotta try the MINCED BEEF RICE W/RAW EGG IN CLAY POT its my favorite at the Utopia Caf at the San Francisco Chinatown Area ~"
  • The vegetables noodles are a great option for vegetarians! Loved them!
  • Tucked in under the painted balconies on Waverly. The fried rice is very delicate, very unique.
  • Get the standard: chinese sausage & preserved duck clay pot rice; the fat of the chinese bacon makes the rice delicious. Use the soy sparingly, mix, & make sure to scrape/eat the crunchy bits!
  • Great salt and pepper calamari and pork and oyster clay pot. Portions are large and good value.
  • Venture down a tiny alley to find this Chinatown gem, then continue your adventure with a clay pot - the crust is irresistable! Also noteworthy: shrimp-filled wontons in noodle soup.
  • Gotta have the salted and pepper fish...
  • Try a clay pot here!
  • Beef brisket wonton Udon
