  • Colin RThere is legit, non-hipster Chinese food in this town. Every single plate of food came spicy. Don't get me wrong, I like me some spice but this was overkill. Spice shouldn't overpower the flavor.

    33333 by Colin R

  • Bikash M.Expect some heat in most things!! Cumin lamb, chicken wings and Ma po tofu for the win!!

    55555 by Bikash M.

  • ISC C.This is what Americanized-Chinese food should be. Plus, huge portions and socially responsible: win-win!

    55555 by ISC C.

  • ISC C.Most people are aware it's inside a different storefront; interesting no-frill decor

    55555 by ISC C.

  • ISC C.Westlake Rice Porridge (Dungeness crab, medium rare brisket, egg, cilantro)

    55555 by ISC C.

  • Iñaki TLamb ribs OMG, and do the green beans of course.

    55555 by Iñaki T

    55555 by Michael D.

    33333 by Ed V

  • Jay BFantastic, tasty and tongue numbing! Pickled cucumber, kimchi and beijing greens were great..fried chicken with vinegar dip was amazing! Not your typical SF Chinese. Mission, grungy decor!

    55555 by Jay B

    55555 by Jowey W

  • Max W.Spicy chicken bowl was really good. Dumplings were bad. Not classic Chinese but super interesting.

    55555 by Max W.

  • Danni CHip and trendy Chinese Sichuan food with a twist. Non-greasy, non-authentic. Yes, deliciously spicy menus numb your tongue and mouth! I enjoyed their mapo tofu, cooked bacon, and kung pao pastrami.

    55555 by Danni C

    55555 by Francesca 9

    55555 by Anthony J

    55555 by Frances James

    33333 by Zi Wang

  • Double DOver priced fusion food, expect half size on noodles.

    33333 by Double D

  • Hendrik JGreat food, amazing dumplings! Beware: spicy is spicy, though.

    55555 by Hendrik J

    55555 by Marc Charbonneau

  • Aravind R.Schezwan peppercorn chicken wings is an oral rollercoaster

    55555 by Aravind R.

  • Scott R.Outstanding cuisine.

    55555 by Scott R.

  • Laurence B.Kung pao pastrami seems like a really weird idea until you take your first bite, and then it suddenly seems so obvious you'll wonder why nobody else is doing it

    33333 by Laurence B.

  • Sean M.Bacon. Weird salad thing

    33333 by Sean M.

  • Adam R.Ribs are fantastic

    55555 by Adam R.

  • Berk ZKung Pao Pastrami + Chicken Wings \m/

    55555 by Berk Z

  • Jiexi CaoTheir selling point is being tacky. Food is solid, but that atmosphere is not so appetizing... Would probably order take out from now on

    55555 by Jiexi Cao

  • Hei-Yu CStunning creative Chinese fusion food. Crispy pork ribs with coca cola sauce and the pork belly is freakin' awesome! Worth waiting a bit. Worst interior ever - in a awesome way.

    55555 by Hei-Yu C

  • Candid CuisineGet the thrice cooked bacon here! One of the few restaurants opened in Mission District late at night

    55555 by Candid Cuisine

  • Melis LAcı seviyosanız mongolian long beans kesinlikle denemelisiniz ayrıca et seviyorsanız beef with brokoli süperrr 👍👍 eti o kadar güzel pişirmişler ki yumuşacık, agzınızda eriyo 😉🍗

    55555 by Melis L

  • Mark IThe Sour Chili Chicken and the Fresh Rice Noodles!

    55555 by Mark I

  • Noah W.The best Chinese food hands down. Get everything so spicy you can't feel your lips. Thrice cooked bacon, Kung pao pastrami, ma pao tofu makes a perfect meal for two.

    55555 by Noah W.

  • Shannon C.the 3x cooked bacon is worth the hype. Schmaltz rice is also amazing.

    55555 by Shannon C.

  • RaynaAte so much here: Tea smoked eel, mapo tofu, egg noodles, chongqing wings, and Sichuan pickles!!

    55555 by Rayna

  • Morgan BMapo doufu was just as it should be: very spicy, lots of mala

    55555 by Morgan B

  • Derek PMa Po with mushrooms is a new staple in my Chinese dining

    55555 by Derek P

  • Kevin RipperI was very drunk here but I said, "This is the best Chinese food of my life," at least 10 times. Hard to have a bad choice here, but Ma Po Tofu with pork stands out for me

    55555 by Kevin Ripper

  • JackieThey put the Má in Má Pó Tofu.

    55555 by Jackie

  • Lauren MacNot just overrated, but downright bland. The fried rice fish dish everyone raves about is basically a huge plate of flavorless carbs. So overpriced, little flavor.

    22222 by Lauren Mac

  • Peiying WenMapo tofu with mushrooms is a genius invention. Must have!

    55555 by Peiying Wen

  • Rem KoningEverything! But the chicken heart and peanut salad is especially tasty. Order in to avoid long lines.

    55555 by Rem Koning

  • Rebecca W.Everything is good. Squid ink noodles delicious. Tiki pork belly crisped outside tender inside to perfection. Tea-smoked eel mix of textures amazing.

    55555 by Rebecca W.

  • Alex JGood food but really salty. Great service

    55555 by Alex J

  • Kim P.Worth the hype to try at least once! Must order: the salted cod fried rice and pork belly. Skip: the eel rolls.

    55555 by Kim P.

  • Yusun ChungI liked it but I don't think it's worth the wait. It's overpriced hip modern Chinese food. I would only go if it's late enough to avoid waiting.

    55555 by Yusun Chung

  • Jeshua B.It's terrible in all the right ways.

    22222 by Jeshua B.

  • Frost L.Good if order online but I won't wait in line for it.

    33333 by Frost L.

  • Nikolai SkoglundGeneral tso's veal rib is amazing. But beware it's a lot of food

    55555 by Nikolai Skoglund

  • The Tastes that Make the CityThe kung pow pastrami is the best pastrami in SF, making our list of "The Tastes That Make the City: SF Edition."

    55555 by The Tastes that Make the City

  • SFistThis popular Chinese spot has an array of delicious choices including some signature ones like the salt cod fried rice, tea-smoked eel, and kung pao pastrami.

    55555 by SFist

  • Frances JamesBe prepared to wait (although, as of Jan '15 I heard they're taking rezzies??) Solid shareable Chinese dishes.

    55555 by Frances James

  • Eatosaurus RexYeah, the Salt Cod Fried Rice is probably the most popular item on the menu, but if you want to shit fire order the Ma Po Tofu. I don't know why I said that like its a good thing.

    33333 by Eatosaurus Rex

  • Reesa KashukCod fried rice and the rice cakes were out of this world good!

    55555 by Reesa Kashuk

    33333 by Stefan

  • Max B.thrice cooked bacon is the bomb. the rice cakes inside are perfect.

    55555 by Max B.

  • Justin W.The mapo tofu is my favorite. Order as many dishes as you can for family style, they're all awesome and most of them have Sichuan peppercorn. Delicious.

    55555 by Justin W.

  • Henry WuWorst "chinese" food I've had in awhile. Kung pao pastrami tastes like leftovers cooked by a clueless chef

    22222 by Henry Wu

  • Jennifer O.Everything was so good! But beware of the spice. Just one "fire" was a lot more spicy than I can handle. Next time I'll stick with the dishes with no "fire".

    33333 by Jennifer O.

  • James PadenSeems overrated, but still good

    33333 by James Paden

  • LuckyNo idea what the hype is about MCF ?! Worse food we have had last 2 yrs! Dumplings avg, wings overfried (lil meat), broccoli&brisket cheap meat AND Fresh Rice Noodle made 2 of us 3 literally vomit!

    22222 by Lucky

  • Nicole M.Best Chinese food I've had in the bay!

    55555 by Nicole M.

  • Nicole AptekarOddly enough, the vegan version of the spicy bacon&rice cakes is unbelievably delicious.

    55555 by Nicole Aptekar

  • Kevin L.The wings have a dusting of Szechuan pepper, which is like taking a taser to the mouth but more addictive.

    55555 by Kevin L.

  • TV Food MapsCheck out Mission Chinese Food as seen on Heat Seekers , Unique Eats

    55555 by TV Food Maps

  • Florian K.The squid inked noodles with house chorizo lamb is unique and delicious

    55555 by Florian K.

  • Trevor F.What's not good here? Love the thrice cooked bacon, beef brisket & broccoli, egg-egg noodles, squid ink noodles, shrimp pea dumplings and basically everything else. Toss it down with a few Tsing Taos.

    55555 by Trevor F.

  • Exklu SiwFast service, typical Chinese, good price

    55555 by Carollyn P.

  • Andy MatuschakOne of the most interesting restaurants in the city. Incredible value.

    55555 by Andy Matuschak

  • Patrick W.The food has seen better days. Without Danny Bowien at the helm, the quality has dipped and you either get spicy without depth or not spicy at all. There's better Chinese to be had in Outer Sunset

    33333 by Patrick W.

  • Timothy C.General Tso's Veal Rib is fantastic; fav dish was prob the Squid Ink Pasta with Lamb Chorizo. Wow.

    55555 by Timothy C.

    55555 by Alisson X.

  • Lily T.The odd thing about this place is, you need to completely ignore the name of the restaurant to enjoy it.

    33333 by Lily T.

  • Jordan YoungAlways go with the Kung Pow Pastrami

    55555 by Jordan Young

  • Vindu G.A big disappointment after trying the amazing NY outpost. Great pork belly, though.

    55555 by Vindu G.

    33333 by Vikas V.

  • Lynn H.Thrice cooked bacon and cumin lamb ribs are awesome! Better food and shorter wait than the one in NYC.

    55555 by Lynn H.

  • Travel + LeisureDespite the hour-long wait, the food is worth it. Founding chef Danny Bowien calls his cuisine “Americanized Chinese food”; think fiery kung pao pastrami and a cardamom-laced beef brisket soup.

    55555 by Travel + Leisure

  • Seth B.Popular as fuck. If you have no time but really want the excellent food, order out.

    55555 by Bryan Y.

  • Tara R.LOVED THIS PLACE. Ma po tofu was good (a lil hyped) but the Thrice Cooked Bacon?! WOW. Well deserved hype. So glad we ordered. Unassuming front, got inside and it was full. Best meal of my vacation.
