Bad Food! Rude waitress! – The food was so bad! Pork Chops were not cooked on the inside and the other dishes were bland and tasteless! They even charged us $7 for a bowl of white rice which was appalling!
Beware the bespectacled waitress! She was hawking me as I signed the credit card bill and told me that my 12% tip (based on the total bill including the taxes) was not good enough and that I needed to leave her 15%. She even quoted the dollar amount I should give!! I did add a couple more dollars to the tip as I didn
Rude waitress. Food isn't bad – Yuet Lee is usually my preferred place for late night dining because it opens until 3A.M.
However, last I went there, I brought a friend who came to visit San Francisco just last week. The waitress was angry about something I don't know. She looked angry all the time and rushed us to order and get out of the restaurant. Collected all the dishes even before we finished it without asking a thing.
I wasn't very satisfied with how she treated us, so I decided to not fully give her the tip. I left on the table a small amount of money we got back as change. This waitress then came up to us yelling and looked at us like we were some homeless who didn't know any manners.
"Do you know you have to give 15% tip in America?"
"You should be greatful we are not charging you for the box"
Yes... the box for leftover stuff. What the hell was that attitude? I recommended this restaurant to my best friend and this was how they treat us?
I'll never go eat there ever again.
Good Chinatown Eatery – I don't think this is the best eatery in Chinatown, but we found the food fresh, generously portioned, reasonably priced, and flavorful. We enjoyed eating there and would go back anytime if we lived in SF.
Fun Experience – The best thing about the dining experience here is ordering one dish and getting another instead. The seafood entrees are tasty and plentiful. Forget the service but the prawns with oytser sauce are delicious. We would return anytime.
Best Chinese food in SF! – This is the best place for authentic chinese food. Everything I've had has been wonderful - the seafood is very fresh, as are the vegetables and they have a wide variety of choices on the menu to suit everyone. I love the salt & pepper calamari as well as the salt & pepper crab (which has a batter over the shell and is a bit spicy - EXCELLENT!) The owner & the staff are very friendly, and the restaurant is clean. I recently moved to Palo Alto and if my family calls to tell me they're going to Yuet Lee, I will drive up to SF to meet them for dinner!
food to die for yadidamean – man, u can't get enuff of this place. Service is da bomb. Great hang out for everyone. Bring da homies n da possies n just chill on peking pork, salt n peppa calamari, beef chow fun, lobster, crab, black peppa clams. another thing u can't get anywhere else is tht da food comes lightning fast n piping hott. this place is an establishment in SF.
Salt and pepper squid! Sauteed pea shoots! – I can't believe I lived here for years before going to Yuet Lee. By far the best late night eats in the city, it's worth a trip at any time of day for that squid and those pea shoots... Come expecting zilch in the way of "atmosphere" -- but, in fact, Yuet Lee has tons of atmosphere, of the awesomely divey (but very clean) kind. A San Francisco institution, and rightly so.
Authentic Chinese restaurant stays open late and puts the emphasis on edibles from the sea. – In Short
Located on a bustling corner where North Beach and Chinatown merge, this eatery offers many traditional Chinese noodle and rice dishes, but specializes in freshly prepared seafood. In the no-frills dining room, patrons hunker over steamed crab, Boston lobster, deep-fried oysters and clay pots brimming with catfish and abalone. True to its roots, the menu contains offerings like fresh frog rice soup and braised sea cucumber with duck feet that might be absent at more Americanized venues.
Great late night spot – I've visited Yuet Lee on many drunken nights and the food is great. The crispy noodles and a couple of the egg dishes are the way to go, though everything is good and made from scratch.
Good Authentic Chinese – The decor may scare some people away but they will be missing out on one of the best Chinese restaurants in San Francisco. All dishes are made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Order any dish with abalone and you are getting the real deal, not something from a can.
This is great place to know about when visting San Francisco because it is open till 3am. The place is always packed regardless of the time and the majority eating are locals. Please be warned that this place only accepts CASH.
