    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. Read more

    I have not tried the restaurant downstairs but upstairs is a fun space for the high end event that I attended. Nice indoor bar and lounge area is well as an outdoor patio area.

    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.

    The best xiao long baos I've ever had (but $9 for 4 pieces...) - hope the quality was not a fluke! If that's true, the quality is better than Din Tai Fung in Taiwan, but not the price.

    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!

    The amazing Xiao Long Baos I had the first time here were definitely a fluke. Came back and the quality dropped immensely. Tried other dishes as well - still do not think it is worth the price.

    Fantastic xiaolongbao, har gao, shu mai, and those egg yolk custard buns (even if they do look like tangerines!)

    Eggplant, egg custard buns, and anything from the dim sum! Order the Peking duck, but if you're a former Beijinger/food snob, skip it

    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!

    Great ambience. Gives Hakkasan a run for the money in the fancy Chinese food category

    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!

    Beautiful views of the Bay. Peking Duck was great, prepared table side just like in Beijing.

    Must try the Xiao Long Bao. Better than anywhere else in the bay area.

    Food is superb...but the main point of failure this restaurant faces is a western style management servicing customers expecting an authentic Chinese dining experience. #smh

    Pepper crab is pricey but good. Ours at "market price" came out to $58.

    Dim Sum is authentic, but really expensive. Can't justify the additional costs. Heavy on the msg.

    Over-priced dim sum! Stir fried Pea-shoots costs $18! And the dim sum served was not even warm :(

    Ordered the hainanese chicken from the to-go counter. It doesn't live up to the expectation of the original Crystal Jade I tried in Asia. Disappointed.

    Food was overpriced and the service was shockingly bad. Staff hardly knew their own menu.
