NileGuide Expert tip:
Bring a sweater. You might have to wait for a table outside, where it'll almost certainly be in the 50s after dark here in the inner Sunset.
Locals rave about the dry-fried chicken, shrimp and green beans, traditional Chinese boiled dumplings and friendly and efficient service. If you're looking for high-quality Chinese food away from the crowds of Chinatown (and the unfortunately brusque service they often result in), head hear after a day in Golden Gate Park. The line of locals shivering in the Inner Sunset fog waiting for a table are a sure giveaway that you're in the right place. Plus, if you're traveling with a big group, just try finding a restaurant in Chinatown at the dinner hour that can seat twelve comfortably at one table inside of 30 minutes.
