Out of this world experience!!! My first time at Mission Chinese Food and I saw the chef himself, Danny Bowien signing his new book!!! He was very personable and welcoming and immediately noticed us standing waiting for service. He told us that someone will be right with us soon! True to form, there was a charming server who helped us quickly and handed us our food to go fast as well. He gave good recommendations on vegetarian items as well. Wonderful Ma Po Tofu and Iced Coffee! Very distinct, tasteful, and flavorful!!!!! There are garage parking around the mission so it is worth the drive definitely!!!

I believe someone tried to steal Serena Williams' phone here. She chased the guy down. Also, the food is fantastic. The wings though are heavily seasoned and a bit hard to eat.

Worth the wait even on the weekend. Noisy and crowded atmosphere but not necessarily in a bad way. The pork belly and thrice cooked bacon and rice cakes were delicious. The kung pao burrito was really disappointing and uninspired. Reasonable prices for good quality food. Will be back.

Great, inventive food. Not the best atmosphere. Worth the wait to try at least once though.

Quality seems higher eating in over taking out. The wait is worth it. This definitely isn't "good bad" chinese food. They do twists on classic favorites and do it very well. The General Tso's Veal Rib is amazing, but I'd pass on the Kung Pao Burrito.

I dont know if Anthony bourdain knows what chinese food should taste. This is a poor recommendation from him. I ordered 3 dishes 1 of then is fried rice $13 theres nothing special with it if you go To any chinese restaurant they could cook better than that. 2nd is chow mein wow very expensive its $17 if you guys would ask me go To Panda Restaurant chain it is much better. 3rd caramelized pork ribs wtf $18 what kind of taste is that theres nothing special on it if you cook it with just pepper and salt compare with their cooking i think a lots of people would rather choose it.

Had their "famous" Chinese burrito. It was definitely novel, but just OK. We didn't get water. They pushed us out the door. Food is a 3, service a 2. Bottom line I would not go back

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.
