This Chinatown standby delivers "solid" Hong Kong–style fare, "amazing" Peking duck and "very good dim sum from the menu" (not carts) in unpretentious surrounds staffed by a "quick" , "witty" crew; while it’s "somewhat pricey" , the "busy" crowds suggest most consider the rates "worth it."

We were on a trip to SF and ran into the Chinese Zodiac wall, right outside the Oriental Pearl. Stopped in for lunch and found they had the most amazing service staff. I mentioned that my wife has a gluten allergy and they brought the head person and help her order. The sea bass was AMAZING! But, you do need a few people to eat it as it is huge. The people and food were the top. And, the patrons were really diverse. There was a table of navy women, a table of business men in suits, a table of tourists (us), and lots of locals. A great friendly vibe with very authentic food and people.

Good, classical Chinese dishes with service focused on the tourist or special night out. It will not disappoint. Prices are higher than other equivalent restaurants, but a good value.

Most of the food here was really good. The service was a little slow, but nothing too long, and you probably won't mind it. The restaurant was clean, and had very nice tables.
