R&G Lounge Review

The name conjures up an image of a dark, smoky bar with a piano player, but this Cantonese restaurant is actually as bright as a new penny. On the lower level (entrance on Kearny Street) is a no-tablecloth dining room that's packed at lunch and dinner. The classy upstairs space (entrance on Commercial Street) is a favorite stop for special-occasion banquets and Chinese businessmen on expense accounts. The street-level room on Kearny is a comfortable spot to wait for an open table. A menu with photographs helps you pick from the many wonderful, sometimes pricey, always authentic dishes, such as the famous salt-and-pepper Dungeness crab, Peking duck, and shrimp-stuffed tofu. Much of the seafood is fresh from the tank.

    R&G Lounge Review

    Every time we are in San Francisco we make time to go to R&G Lounge to eat. It is the best Chinese restaurant we have been in the USA. Their prices are reasonable and there are many food choices. It is clean and the service is fast. Be sure to get the salt and pepper scallops, one of our favorites.

    R&G Lounge Review

    On one of my first trips to SF, the hotel concierge strongly recommended that I try R&G. Since she is a native San Franciscan, and also Chinese, I trusted her. She was right, and I have been back there several times ever since. Nothing fancy (it is in Chinatown after all), but the quality of food is excellent and more importantly, authentic (rivaling the food I am accustomed to in Hong Kong).

    R&G Lounge Review

    What a find! Our family enjoyed this dining experience immensely and would will return when back in San Francisco. We talked with a local in the bar who told us the dishes to order, and he did not steer us wrong. We had the salt and pepper crab and special beef. Also the lychee cocktail - Would highly reccommend.
