    Festive and flavorful Chinese restaurant in the Mission. The pork belly, salt cod fried rice and ma po tofu are excellent.

    Interesting combos: we loved the pastrami, green beans, and all the various fried rice. Best Chinese food I've ever had.

    Fantastic, tasty and tongue numbing! Pickled cucumber, kimchi and beijing greens were great..fried chicken with vinegar dip was amazing! Not your typical SF Chinese. Mission, grungy decor!

    Hip and trendy Chinese Sichuan food with a twist. Non-greasy, non-authentic. Yes, deliciously spicy menus numb your tongue and mouth! I enjoyed their mapo tofu, cooked bacon, and kung pao pastrami.

    this is by far the worst food i've ever had. Its not even Chinese food in my opinion. The kung pao pastrami tastes like leftovers quickly scrambled in a wok with an overload of salt. AVOID.
