Park Chow: "A Fun Local Restaurant Experience in SF" Chow / Park Chow Tip by mydreamquest

Chow / Park Chow, San Francisco: 7 reviews and 2 photos

  Park Chow on 1240 9th Avenue
by mydreamquest

Park Chow is located in a very fun restaurant area of the Lower Sunset District in San Francisco. Around the Lower Sunset, you'll find many restaurants and this casual local style cuisine is my favorite around here.

It has excellent beers and wines as well as unique style dishes. There's an eclectic mixture of Italian, Indian, Chinese, and even Thai in the various dishes. You can order the unique types of individual pizzas or some of the experimentally successful pastas.

Favorite Dish: You most try the "Smiling Noodle" if you love curry and chicken. It's my favorite dish here.

It's a fairly louder restaurant but there's a charm about this place.

Remember to tip the waiter and waitress at least 15% of the price of the food before tax. Be generous. They work really hard and will have to pay taxes on 15% of the cost even if you decide to be stingy and not tip them.

The service here is fast, dependable, and friendly. They do not take reservations here. It's first come, first served. If you have to wait, just grab a beer at the bar and relax.
