Mission Chinese Food

I have no idea how this restaurant is so popular. Service here is not good. It took 30 minutes for them to take our order on an evening where the restaurant was not even full. However, we thought the food was going to make up for it. I don't think I've ever had such salty food before. With one of the appetizers, I went through two glasses of water almost instantly after a bite. And then they forgot one of our orders. Which actually we were pretty thrilled about. But then it took another 20 minutes to get our bill when we finished and another 20 minutes for them to accept our credit card (we had to chase down a different waitress-our waiter was traipsing about the back of the restaurant). Seriously, there are better restaurants than this. Do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

haven't been able to eat in the restaurant because of the long lines but it looks like a fun atmosphere. delivery is always timely..tried several dishes and all are amazing. flavors like i've never experienced before. i was drunk the first time i ordered and completely missed the hot pepper icons on the menu - 2 peppers - oy hot! i sweat but still oh so yummy! my favs so far - thrice cooked bacon, ma po tofu, westlake rice porridge + salt cod fried rice....once you eat this food, life will be better.

This creative 'Chinese' menu caused me to over order, i wanted to try everything! They arrived in exactly 45 mins as they stated and the food traveled very well! I had the Egg Custard(delish), Sesame Noodles(A+), Beef Cheek(Good, little greasy) and Salt and Pepper Prawns(Great but could do without the curry, was hoping for more traditional flavors i guess). For the money, portions seemed huge - would rather eat in and try more of the menu with a group, but i was blown away by how beautiful and fresh the food was when it arrived. Correct packaging goes a long way over 8 blocks! Try it when you feel adventurous!

OMG- What a great find. A fabulous, fresh, exquisite restaurant hidden within a mission place I'd walked by a zillionn times. the fresh tofo! the veggie dumpling soup! and totally affordable. YUM>but don't spread the word too far-- you can still get in. And open for lunch and takeout!!
