Besides the Peking Duck, I don't know what I had as my Chinese sister-in-law did the ordering without using a menu. Everything was quite tasty. It was busy, noisy, and the service spotty, but all in all well worth the visit.

This place is tops in Chinese cuisine not only in SF, but other cities. The food is definitely 5 star, but I gave it a 4 star because of the looong wait. I can't believe some folks wait over 2 hours for a table for...More

No hot pot. Dim sum during the day. You might be able to get a few selections of dim sum at dinner time if you ask; it all depends on how much was unsold during lunch time.
