Good food. First timers; we tried the eel roll, tiger salad, and cod fried rice. Service was very friendly. Portions were plenty for a super hot 95 degree day. No ac in here but somehow it wasn't scorching inside. As others noted, this is a true mom and pop shop with at unique character.

The basics: The sign outside actually says "Lun Shan Restaurant," or 龍山小館. 龍山means dragon mountain. You won't find Mission Chinese until you get inside and see the menu. You don't need tattoos or a beard to eat here, though you would fit in better if you do. They take Visa/MasterCard/Amex. Yeah, it's not really the kind of hole in the wall old skool Chinese chop suey joint you think it is by appearance. Ordered the three most popular dishes: Salt Cod Fried Rice, Chongqing Chicken Wings, and the 3x Cooked Bacon and Rice Cake. All of them tasty. Fried rice was perfectly cooked and not oily. The chicken wings weren't as spicy as it is numbing, with a lot of seasoning, maybe a bit too much for some. The spiciest is the bacon and rice cakes. be careful what you bite into, it could heat up real fast. Overall impressed with the food. Will try other dishes next time.

Most people that rate this place dont know shit about food in general. Nothing is bad there- some items are better than others. Certain trendy items get more attention than others, but that's due to first time vistors or over opinionated indaviduals that cant see past their own bias opinions. The the Kung Pao pastrami, trice cooked bacon, salt cod fried rice, and general Tao's veal rib are amazing. The true star of this establishment is the Mongolian Long Beans-Hands down top five asian dishes in all of San Francisco, and the entire west coast in general. Enjoy.

SPICY. I heard so much about this place that I just had to try. We came on a Sunday around 2 PM. It was empty, I thought I had the wrong place, but it was correct. We sat down and order a TON because we wanted to try so many things with the intent of taking some to go. Everything here is super packed with flavors but its extremely spicy. If you're not a fan of spice do not come here. 3 Stars because most of our dishes especially our glasses were kindve dirty, but then again this isnt the cleanest part of town..

Truly a hole-in-the-wall eatery. As other reviewers have noted, there is a lot of fat cooked in the meat dishes (veal ribs & tiki pork belly from experience), but that's what makes it taste so good! If superior service, eclectic decor and flavorful dishes are appealing, then check out this place. Be prepared to wait if you go after 7pm.

I wanted to give this place a higher rating, but I just didn't see what the hype is all about. The ladies who waited on me were so nice that I'd like to give more stars, but the food, while greasy and tasty, was lacking. The three sauces in squeeze bottles on each table were the highlight of my meal - so delicious, you could drink em!

The fried rice is amazing. The tingly soup is interesting, but really it's all high quality. Tough out the line and get some delicious food.

Limited veggie options but all are pretty good. Definitely try the vegan thrice cooked bacon, the Mongolian long beans and the peanut noodle.
