I was very disappointed in Uncle's restaurant. Our meal was barely average, and reminded me of your average suburban strip mall Chinese place. What really turned us off was their poor service. Very slow to seat us, very slow to provide menus/water, and the server seemed bothered by our polite questions and requests. There are too many excellent alternatives steps away from Uncle's. Please learn from our mistake and avoid Uncle's.

What appeared to be a sunny corner restaurant ended up a service nightmare . Although fully staffed by servers we waited 15 minutes before our prescence was acknowledged. Our meals were barely average. What we ordered differed greatly from the photo in menu. The tea was warm and flavorless, and our server was bothered by our prescence. Avoid Uncles. There are many fine alternatives to this disappointment.

This is a great find off the beaten path in San Fran chinatown! The value is best! Huge servings under $10. Food is authentic local chinese. No frills decorations but attentive service by friendly wait staff. Don't miss this gem. Find it on Waverly up 1/2 block from Grant between Sacramento and Clay Streets. Try the sampler appetizer, chicken cashew, and kung pao - awesome and we left with 2 boxes of left-overs with $36 tab including sake and red wine! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

If you have ever had Chinese food in Vancouver Canada then you truly know what great Chinese food is. I have always been disappointed in San Francisco Chinese food until I ate here. And I have tried a lot of Chinese food in San Francisco. If only they would add the small dry garlic spareribs and/or the small honey garlic spareribs, I wouldn't have to fly to Vancouver for Chinese food. But every time I go to San Francisco this will be the place for me.

I literally grew up catty corner from this restaurant, in the orange brick building. The restaurant has changed somewhat, now featuring more of the classic, slightly greasy but oh so good Cantonese fare. Recently, our family met there (Sat eve, very quiet) and we had a dozen people. My mom ordered and the food was outstanding. A few of us had to have the usual oxtail stew, tongue and meat. Wonderful over white rice and gravy. Pies aren't as big a thing as before, but still OK. Ice cream a la mode on the heated (not micro waved) fresh pies were our afternoon snacks before. We do miss seeing the custard and apple pie laid out near the window on Clay St. Lots of nice Toishan accented Cantonese, but good and alert steady service, too.

Refreshing change for the constant pillaging of your pockets in San Fran as a tourist. Good food, cheap price. Fam of four $25 with tip, more than enough food. XLNT service, lots of locals, not much to look at but quiet, simple and better than average chinese food. Typical menu, along with a menu in Chinese. All the regular fare, chow mein, rice, shrimp, sweet and sour, egg rolls, kung pao, etc etc.
