    It felt strange when the owner took out a menu from our hands, and told to forget about it, he is a chef. I guess it seemed charming to other people, but we knew exactly what we wanted. Food was great

    Egg rolls are surprisingly good, dumpings were avg but sauce was tasty. Bf short ribs were recommene, it was okk. Good flavor but its pretty much like salt and pepper fried beef stew cubes.

    Second visit, the chef recognized us. Said not to worry about ordering, he would take care of us. He sent out delicious buns, veggie dumplings, pumpkin soup and the most tender, flavorful beef dish <3

    Chef Peter Fang asked, "Do you know what you'll be having tonight?" I replied back with, "we'll have whatever you recommend!" His eye lit up and he took our menus away. The best 10-course dinner ever!

    Best Chinese food in SF!! Let Chef Fang order for you - it's insanely good. If you're a menu orderer though, I recommend the peking buns, onion cake, short ribs, pea shoot salad, & white fish

    If you want a treat that isn't on the menu, ask your waiter for their apple & chicken plate. The apples are fried and salted, while the chicken has a light honey mustard to it. It's so delicious!

    Yes. Agree. Let the owner decide what u should eat. Amazing, creative dishes. Portobello mushrooms w tarragon & barley so unexpected. The short ribs, divine. I even liked the apples in the prawn dish!

    My favorite Chinese spot in SF! The must try's are the Nanking Sesame Chicken, Mongolian Beef Tower and the House Fried Rice. If you're in a large group, have the chef choose your meal.

    White River Fish Soup is exceptional - a great comfort soup to start a meal. The short ribs has amazing melt in your mouth texture. It's nice to have Peter order for you. Just sit there & enjoy!

    If it's your first time here and Peter asks if he should take care of your culinary quest, say yes. You won't be disappointed. And it's not too pricey either.

    Delicious. Couldn't say what my favorite dishes are as I've never seen a menu. Don't be afraid and let the staff order for you. It's definitely some of the best Chinese food I've had in SF.

    A little bit of a racket at dinner. "Order for you" turns into upgrading things you ask for to more expensive similar options without really giving you a choice. On the other hand, it's good food.

    Brown rice with fish and shrimp good flavor but they mix in fermented black beans ewww. Everything was small portions, flavor was there but overpriced for what it is.

    For large parties, request to be seated at the Tibetan room. Dignitaries usually accommodate this area. Enjoy the private, wood-lined, opulent feel. For the claustiphobic, don't use the elevator!

    Service was surprisingly slow on what seemed to be only a moderately busy night. The person who took my drink order couldn't take my food order, so had to wait for another server to come by?!
