After reading many good recommendations on Trip Advisor, I went to U-Lee on October 13 only to find it no longer in business. It was boarded up with newspapers taped over all the windows. Talked to a man on the street. He said it had...More

I used to live in SF back in the 70's-80's. U-Lee has been at their present location forever. Its a tiny, local joint that doesn't look like much from the outside but don't let looks fool you. The pot stickers are unreal. Black bean sauce...More

We tried to visit this restaurant on 10/6/14 while we were in SF, based on the tripadvisor rating/recommendations, but it is now closed. See photo below. Note the newpaper covering the windows. There is also a "closed" sign on the front door.

After spending the day walking around northern San Fran and wanting to end it with great, authentic, no-frills Chinese food, I had gotten a recommendation in a travel book about U-Lee so I sought this place out. There is no doubt in my mind that...More

We were biking thru S.F. and wanted some good Chinese food, so we checked Trip Advisor and found U-Lee. This is a seven table restaurant on the corner of Jackson and Hyde. The place looks like nothing from the outside and to be honest it...More

From outside its not an impressive place. Like many of the Chinese Restaurants, its about the taste of the food not the look or design or location of the building. The food has complex and wonderful flavors. Nver thought something as simple as Wonton soup...More

A lot of the restaurants in Russian Hill are a little pricy, the U Lee is very well priced great family run Chinese restaurant. Don't expect silver service but do expect great food and a large menu. We had spicy shrimp, snow pea and bamboo...More

We found this little gem through various review sites. I use to claim that the best food came out of small restaurants and this place proves that is still true (seats about 40). The Potsticker Dumplings are amazing. The hot and sour soup definitely sour...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
