4 out of 5 stars Friendly service, beautiful decor - great view of nature from tables in the rear. The food was good, a bit bland for me (wish had brought my crushed red pepper as I usually do), but very large portions, and reasonably priced, and enough vegetables which is not true at many places. Several large round tables for groups of 10-12. LHLisavegan

5 out of 5 stars Delicious. The Seaweed & Pinenut Rice is probably the tastiest rice dish I have ever had - be sure to try it. Tofu and Brown Sauce is so good, too, despite the unassuming name. Huge portions, nice ambiance, friendly service, reasonable prices. Everything I have ever had there has been so good. The "fish" and the Three-Ingredient Noodles are especially tasty. stella

4.5 out of 5 stars Beautiful decor, delicious food, ample variety & good serving sizes. Eight people shared 8 entrees, only $12.50 with tax/tip included! So much food, 7 entrees would have been sufficient. Food was very fresh, did not taste greasy or oily. We were told all food is vegan. Ordered: Pine Nut Fish, Braised Tofu, Veggie Bamboo Reeds, Pan Fried eggplant, Curry Chicken, Golden Mushroom Noodles, Sesame chicken, Mushroom with Greens. Aside from Curry Chicken, would return and have exact same menu. tammy

4 out of 5 stars This restaurant has over 100 seats in their dining area. Mao Pa tofu, curry "chicken" was good and came in large portions. I was told everything was vegan. (can some else confirm this?) Ask to cook in FRESH oil rather than used oil. I had to educate the cashier what vegan meant. The steam dumpling was delicious. , 6 small dumplings for $5. Layonna will drive Bok choy out of busines sunny

3 out of 5 stars Average. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there. The sauces are watery and taste similar so if you order several dishes, the lack of interesting sauce makes the food bland/boring. Both the "Sesame Chicken" and the "Lemon Chicken" comes with sweet and sour sauce. Sesame chicken should come with some kind of sesame sauce. Lemon chicken should have a lemon sauce, etc. Boring. veggiegrrrl

2.5 out of 5 stars menu is huge, and staff are friendly. there was confusion with our order, so much so that the staff couldn't even figure out why the flavors were off (the hot mandarin beef tasted like black bean beef) or the item not at all like the description (the house delight didn't come with the crispy taro and been curd sheet as described in the menu). spicy sour soup was tasty, and will have to try again.

5 out of 5 stars How am I the first to review this place?! It is the best Chinese in the city. Full service restaurant with white tablecloths, attractive decor, elegant authentic dishes, and courteous service. No lunch menu, so same prices/portions as dinner. Brown rice option and complimentary tea. Think Shangri La, only better! Bok Choy Garden across street and Healthy Haven is 2 blocks away on Geary. tklarin
