All I will say is that:

1. a large rat was running around and when I saw it, I nearly threw up.

The food is horrible and not representative of the very good Chinese Food that you will find in SF Chinatown.

I only went here because my friend who was visiting SF Chinatown wanted me to take her to just "any chinese restaurant" to experience "good chinese food."

Regrettably, this was the only place I could find and deeply regret taking her here.

They have set menus and the interior is flourescent lit with cheap counters and tables. The wonton soup was horrible and the stereotypical dishes were by far the worst of any Chinese food I've eaten in San Francisco.

I ate here maybe 2 months ago (August 2005)
