Diner Reviews
  • "We had a weekend lunch here. They have various dim sum items to order (not the passing cart) and they arrive piping hot. They also have a great variety of noodle dishes and wok specialities. We really enjoyed the food, and the service was excellent."

  • "Our second visit, this time with friends, and they too are converts. If you love lobster, this is the place. Only frustration, I couldn't order every lobster dish on the menu. We got the clay pot lobster which we had had before and it didn't disappoint, but they had a separate menu of lobster specialties which would have loved to try. We have tried a lot of Chinese restaurants in SF and you just wouldn't expect the very best to be in a shopping center!"

  • "Last minute reservation after a long afternoon of shopping. Located under the dome in SF shopping mall, very convenient. The Peking Duck dish was excellent. Service is a bit slow. Inside seating is much noisier than outside. The host was not helpful when asked to be reseated to a less noisy section."

  • "We had a large dinner with my wife's family and my family both visiting us. The food was excellent, the waitstaff was very accommodating for such a large group. We had some special requests they fulfilled and everyone had a great time. The food was excellent, especially the lobster, and we found something for everyone to enjoy. We'll be back."

  • " Although we understand that MY China justifies its cuisine by using the "best" ingredients, we were very disappointed as it lacked originality, authenticity and quality. The wait staff was not fully versed about Chinese cooking and the manager was defending a dish that was absolutely inedible by advising us that it was indeed the proper and intentional preparation. We are foodies from Hong Kong so her defense was pretty offensive. It'll be a while before we return."

  • "Beef noodle soup had one of the best broths I have ever tasted. Service was exceptional. Manager stepped up too, when the wine I ordered was not available, offering me tastes of comparable reds."

  • "M.Y. China was a great venue for a birthday because the wait staff was amazing! The food was very attractively served but most of it was fairly bland. But, if you can believe it, I'd go back just because our waiter, Kevin, and the rest were so fabulous! Nice looking restaurant too. Although the noodle show was over by lunch (and we were having dinner), one of their noodle twisters actually came to our table and did a demo! Really, I can't say how much we enjoyed the staff. Go there!"

  • "WE went with a party of six including a seven year old child. The service was very attentive, and the food was very good. Don't miss the outstanding duck! Unfortunately didn't get to see the noodle twirling which we have enjoyed in the past. Food was brought out in stages which allowed us to enjoy sharing the various dishes order. Well worth the visit!"

  • "I'm disappointed to say that this restaurant has really gone downhill since the last time I dined here a year ago. The service was terrible, half our entrees came out cold (including the won ton soup!), and the food was served haphazardly. We were right next to the kitchen so we could see when our food was done, and the waiter was not prompt about delivering our food to us. He didn't even give us our rice until halfway through our main dishes! Most waiters at Chinese restaurants would partially serve the soup or rice on our plates-- nope- he just placed the dishes wherever there was space, including almost knocking my water glass over. Never asked us how we were doing, or followed up with us on anything. Food was ok, but sporadic at best."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Our server was accommodating and friendly. The decor was great. This food was a bit over priced but I expected that from the location we were at being in a mall. Surprising authentic taste but the display of making of the noodles and presentation of the food was great."

  • "always solid food. wish they had dim sum all day. the noodles are legit"

  • "I have been here before and yet my experience at my last visit was just as exciting as the first. The Walnut/Shrimp dish never disappoints or the Mu Shu Pork Tacos; but the best part is the show and interaction with the chefs at the noodle bar. Watching foot-high spun sugar, birds nest looking dessert masterpieces being assembled and of course, the complex creation of the various noodles is fascinating.The main Chef twisted, looped, lassoed and threw the noodle dough to the music "Gangnam Style" while dancing. The hostess found out it was my birthday, so out came a complimentary French donut ball dessert (not the right name) with scrumptious dipping sauces. Don't sit at a boring table, sit at the noodle bar and enjoy a full experience."

  • "I've been a big fan of M.Y. China and recommended it to a number of locals and visitors alike. I've enjoyed their hand-pulled noodles and cocktails on many visits. But the past two visits have been subpar from a service (or lack thereof) and ambiance standpoint. At this price point, you expect to have some assistance with your soup instead of ladling it out yourself, and shouldn't receive your noodle dish 40 min into the meal, 10 minutes after prior dish."

  • "Our first experience with the restaurant. Food was good. Noodles are very good. Limited selection if you do not want spicy food."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I recently visited My China for dinner with an old work friend. We had the juicy dumplings, which were outstanding. My friend commented that they were similar to the ones she loves from Shanghai. We also tried out the Lobster menu, which may only be a special for the month of July. We had the garlic lobster and it was heavenly. The lobster was cooked perfectly and the garlic did not overpower the delicate flavor of lobster. My only negative was the service. Our waitress didn't hear us when we asked for things, and rather than re-asking us, she just ignored the request."

  • "While busy for a weeknight, the ambiance was festive and vibrant without being over the top. Food and drinks were very good. Enjoyed the "Gangnam Style" noodle show. Will be back."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We had such a wonderful time. Plus the dome show is a lot of fun. WE had the Seafood dumplings which came with an amazing sauce. Then we had the mu-shu pork tacos they were so good we consider ordering more. The salt and pepper calamari was good too."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The meal here started off rather strangely. Ordered the juicy dumplings which containes 6 (3 pork, 3 crab roe). We wanted all 6 to be pork. That was a decision that had to be made by the kitchen, not the waitress. Really? Wild Boar Noodles were very good. The Kung Pao chicken was not. Chicken was overcooked and dry and there was no sauce. When we told the waitress, she said she'd let the kitchen know. No taking it off our bill, no offering a different entree. That was $15 down the drain. I so wanted this to be a perfect experience but sadly it was not."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Good variety of dishes and wines with reasonable pricing. Some unusual ingredients such as wild boar appear in several dishes. Definitely a go-to place in the downtown area with parking on-site."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The Chinese food here is amazing! The stir fry wok technique is among the best I've seen and taste in the City!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Dishes are carefully designed to mix Chinese cuisine and modern cooking technique. Not only it's creative, but also it's delicious!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "For the most part the food here still shines but the wait staff and service is tarnished. We were there for dinner early on a Wednesday. The waitperson did not seem to be well trained. 1) we waited a long time for our drinks and bar was not that busy 2) pacing of the dishes arriving at our table was erratic 3) took forever to get our dessert 4) had to ask for our check two times"

  • "This is a nicer eating establishment in the huge shopping center and very welcome. Of course it is also available to nearby hotels such as the Four Seasons. There was entertainment provided by the Shanghai noodles pullers which was fun, and the noodles are also good, with a chewy texture different from pasta or other Asian noodles. We had the noodles with the wild boar. The Sichwan green beans were good; never have a problem getting Chinese children to eat their vegetables! The roast chicken ( usually know as twice cooked chicken in other Chinese restaurants) was a little dry but the waiter promised to report that to the kitchen staff. A lively cheerful place."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The food is pretty good. We like the Beef Soup Noodle and Xiao Long Bao. It could be the best Chinese food you can find in the area but it is pretty pricey. Average appetizers are $10 & entrees are $15+. Typically these dishes would be $5-10 in authentic Chinese restaurants. If you are looking for good food with great ambience, this is a great choice. Usually the service is pretty good, but this time it took more than 5 minutes before the server came to greet us. When we ordered our dishes, he said he would bring me some lemons to go with my water and that he would have our veggie plate come last. Guess what? There was no lemon and the veggie plate actually was the first dish arrived! Don't pretend to be attentive when you are not."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had a great meal here. The service was brusque but amenable. the dishes are not the usual variety of Chinese food (i.e. they have some dishes that are specific to certain regions of China. Noodles star here. We tried the hand-snipped noodles which were nice and 'chewy' although the Wild boar seemed more like pork. The lamb with cumin was also great with a nice 'spicy' after bite."

  • "I had very moderate hope for a restaurant in a mall run by a TV personality. No way it was going to be authentic Chinese. San Franciscans don't go to malls - and certainly not to dine. This was only going to be tourist filled. Well, that might be the case, but then the tourists are getting some of the best Chinese food in SF in a drop-dead beautiful room. The food is absolutely terrific and far more aggressive than we expected. The lobster in the hot pot (part of a current special menu) was amazing. I guess we will be hitting the mall more often."

  • "you know a chinese restaurant is delish when there's mostly chinese people there! really good food-some western influence, but theres absolutely nothing wrong with that! the chicken crispy noodles were so yummy & the egg custard tarts!"

  • "M Y China is a surprise worth discovering. It's located on the fourth floor of a shopping center on Market Street. For those looking for a very good eating experience near Union Square and the Theater district do try M Y China. Quality food and service in a space you would never think about."
