Trendy crowds line up for the imaginative Chinese eats at this casual, nationally known destination.- Google
"The Mapo Tofu and Cod fried rice are the best combination to eat here."
"The more exotic items and meats are not worth the night price tag in my opinion."

A good number of vegan options here that are A MA ZING. Easily one of the best meals I've had in recent seasons. Eager to go back. And check out its NYC sibling if it's still around. Get there right when it opens to guarantee a table!

Coming from Hong Kong, this place definitely lived up to expectations... and a little more. Waitstaff were friendly and knowledgeable. Restaurant had a really fun vibe to it. Meal seemed relatively inexpensive too. A shame I couldn't order everything I wanted to in one sitting without over ordering 😁

Hands down favorite Chinese restaurant. There's always something new for me to try, so I think they update their menu every few months. I try to get something different every time, but it's hard to resist the chicken wings and squid ink pasta.

Not your average Chinese restaurant. Everything I had was absolutely phenomenal! I tried about 8 dishes. Yeah I'm a fat kid, whatever. My date loved it too.

Very great experience. The server designed a meal for our table and it def lived up to the hype. A little too salty though

Mission Chinese was the second destination as my proper introduction to San Francisco food after La Taqueria, whose hype has inconceivably outgrown its brick walls and wooden benches. Mission Chinese is no different; there's a waitlisted crowd on the sidewalk almost every night. You like tables? Inside, they almost have tables on tables. My favorite part about Mission Chinese is the look. There's no proper name on the outside, just the old signage in Chinese characters of what the previous restaurant used to be. The inside is plain, with classic Chinese wall decor - men on horseback prancing in a uniform line, faces painted flat and facing forward like cats detecting a thump. Hold on... dim the lights, play some throwback mid-2000s, add a strobe light, and hang a long dragon from the ceiling. That's what the youth like. "Fried Rice with Cod" is my favorite, mostly because I love rice. Yes, they have standard dishes like "Beef with Broccoli" and some unique, like "Squid Ink Chow Mien." It's all decent/good. If it isn't sprinkle some of that MSG at your table. It's not salt. It's MSG. Try it.

I think I ordered five of the seven veg items, and they were tasty and refreshingly different. I just wish they had a selection with reasonable veg protein (i.e. tofu or something. "porky tofu" on the non-veg menu items doesn't count)

The Chongqing Chicken Wings will leave your lips with a delightfully peculiar tingle. They're spicy hot, but not to the point of being offensive. It must have something to do with the dryness — they aren't drowning in flavorless spicy oil. Go for it! On another note: Don't take your unadventurous parents here for dinner on a Saturday night.
