Squid ink noodles 👍
Reservations don't mean what you think they mean, it just means you're on the shorter waiting list
Portions are huge and food is really tasty. I love chow mein. The waiting line can be overwhelming. It's a really popular spot
Stop reading tips and just order anything on the menu
Hipster central. Get there before 7 and the line is reasonable. Kung Pow pastrami and Szechuan wings are great
Great price! Yummy dishes.
Better than you think.
Thrice cooked bacon, mapo tofu and the Chow mein are all really good. I wish they brought the squid ink noodles back.
Don't get takeout or delivery. It'll be way too greasy.
Ginger and scallion noodles!
Solid shareable Chinese dishes.
The food is rich, order less than you think you'll need. I wasn't a fan of salt cod rice. Loved the pork focused dishes though.
Holy **** this place is worth all the hype. We only had the Kung Pao Pastrami but it was straight up heaven.
Over priced fusion food, expect half size on noodles.
Tea smoked eel and salt cod fried rice!
Great food, amazing dumplings! Beware: spicy is spicy, though.
We liked the beef chow mein, ma pao tofu and beer pickles. The ma pao was really spicy but delicious.
You might not think so, but the Chinese Burrito is actually really good.
Schezwan peppercorn chicken wings is an oral rollercoaster
Kung pao pastrami seems like a really weird idea until you take your first bite, and then it suddenly seems so obvious you'll wonder why nobody else is doing it
Bacon. Weird salad thing
Ribs are fantastic
Perfect order for two people: Tiger Salad, Chongqing Chicken Wings, and Thrice Cooked Bacon and Rice Cakes. Great combination of flavors!
Best Chinese I ever had !
This is the grossest place I've ever been to and in the scariest location I've ever seen. As soon as I stepped off the 33 bus, I just wanted to get back on and leave the area.
Kung Pao Pastrami + Chicken Wings \m/
Their selling point is being tacky. Food is solid, but that atmosphere is not so appetizing... Would probably order take out from now on
Stunning creative Chinese fusion food. Crispy pork ribs with coca cola sauce and the pork belly is freakin' awesome! Worth waiting a bit. Worst interior ever - in a awesome way.
Hate to say it but really worth the hype. And a fun atmosphere and vibe to boot.
Very very tasty. The salt cod fried rice is a must get. And their West Lake porridge is perfect for a sick day
Get the thrice cooked bacon here! One of the few restaurants opened in Mission District late at night
The Sour Chili Chicken and the Fresh Rice Noodles!
The best Chinese food hands down. Get everything so spicy you can't feel your lips. Thrice cooked bacon, Kung pao pastrami, ma pao tofu makes a perfect meal for two.
the 3x cooked bacon is worth the hype. Schmaltz rice is also amazing.
Ate so much here: Tea smoked eel, mapo tofu, egg noodles, chongqing wings, and Sichuan pickles!!
Mapo doufu was just as it should be: very spicy, lots of mala
Ma Po with mushrooms is a new staple in my Chinese dining
I was very drunk here but I said, "This is the best Chinese food of my life," at least 10 times. Hard to have a bad choice here, but Ma Po Tofu with pork stands out for me
I don't remember half of the names of our food but I remember that it was delicious as fck!!!! We had to close a table in advance because the place is almost always filled up.
Servings are huge, mapo tofu and the bacon noodle dish are quite spicy. Rice is $1 extra but they brought out enough to feed the four of us. Waitress was cute.
They put the Má in Má Pó Tofu.
Not just overrated, but downright bland. The fried rice fish dish everyone raves about is basically a huge plate of flavorless carbs. So overpriced, little flavor.
Decent but overpriced and overhyped.
Mapo tofu with mushrooms is a genius invention. Must have!
Everything! But the chicken heart and peanut salad is especially tasty. Order in to avoid long lines.
Everything is good. Squid ink noodles delicious. Tiki pork belly crisped outside tender inside to perfection. Tea-smoked eel mix of textures amazing.
Good food but really salty. Great service
Worth the hype to try at least once! Must order: the salted cod fried rice and pork belly. Skip: the eel rolls.
I liked it but I don't think it's worth the wait. It's overpriced hip modern Chinese food. I would only go if it's late enough to avoid waiting.
