Service was fast and easy. Owner was so attentive and chatted with us for a bit. Kitchen was very busy but we were served quickly. A great night with delicious food!
hello, the hunan food o the restaurant is delicious. the velocity of service very fast.
I know how difficult it is to rub a restaurant in a busy Christmas, but this was still a huge disappointment. We had a reservation, arrived a few minutes early to check in and it was packed. We were told it would be a 20 minute wait. We were seated 5 minutes later right outside the open kitchen. Granted, many tables are there, but this was right in the middle of the room- we watched wait staff seed past, were startled by dish dropping on the floor, overheard all of the yelling and the expediting of the orders. When our food came, it was very, very spicy. We had to ask for rice and water refills. I don’t recommend this restaurant.
Christmas dinner. The place is full of Jews and other non-Christians. We appreciated their quick pace in seating and serving everyone. The limited menu had enough to choose from. Everyone was happy. Fresh, delicious food with a smile. It was great!
We have never seen service as poor and slow. Waited about 20 minutes for someone to take
our order. Sake didn’t come until after the apps. Water refills took diligence on our part. Waitress
asked if we wanted white rice, and we said yes. Then she promptly forgot. Do. Not. Recommend.
Service was very uneven in terms or politeness and attention. We had to repeatedly ask for our check. It’s great that the restaurant doesn’t use MSG and offers gluten free options. However, the food was incredibly salty, especially shrimp and green beans, general chicken and general shrimp.
Delicious food! Enjoyed this cuisine as much as I did years ago. Like seeing an old friend
Cafeteria like interior. Excellent service. Seemed healthier than regular Chinese restaurants as there wasn't much sauce on our food. We live in SOMA and haven't found a good Chinese restaurant. Brandy Ho's was recommended in North Beach area so we went over there. We enjoyed it. Wasn't crowded. Enjoyed getting a cup of Hot and Sour soup unlike other places which require you to buy a huge bowl to share. We had the honey walnut prawns and the General Chicken. Both just a bit pricey at $15.95 and $12.95. We enjoyed both dishes and finished all of it - also unlike most Chinese restaurants where there is too much in each dish. Good beer and sake selection at reasonable prices. We'll come here again.
Excellent Hunan and attentive prompt service. Ambiance ordinary but exactly as expected.
The service was excellent - very attentive to our needs, and explained the different spice levels available. Would highly recommend this restaurant
The food was wonderful. Very well seasoned. The medium spice level was pretty spicy, but not too spicy. The portions were large. The service was great.
The service was great and the food was better than average. We appreciated the fast and hot food that was freshly made for our group. Would recommend to anyone looking for economical Chinese food in SF.
Good Chinese food without msg. Great no fuss service.
Excellent restaurant. I've been coming here for years and the quality and taste are superb. Great service too! Be sure to order your food prepared as "Mild" because even the "mild" food is quite spicy!
Food was excellent! We had a really big party and shared entrees and appetizers that worked great. They do warn you but the food is really spicy; the mild is even spicy! I would say it's probably the best Chinese food I've had.
Arrived with 7pm reservations on a Friday night. Didn't look too busy but time slot was honored. Also had flowers sent for table by a third party - they were delivered promptly by the maitre'd after we were seated. Food was spicy for our taste even though we selected "Mild" and we're from Louisiana! Service was excellent and the other staff members were very attentive to our needs regardlesss whether it was their table or not. All in all a good meal and reasonably priced restaurant on the edge of Chinatown.
The food at Brandy Ho's was delicious! No MSG was used so no sodium bloat. Very tasty and a variety of claasic dishes. The wine list was excellent and a very well stocked bar. I would recommend it for anyone looking for excellent Chinese food in San Francisco.
Loved the flavors. The steamed fish was phenomenal
Used to be one of the best in the 80's. Unfortunately that was a long time ago.
We had hot and sour soup and hot peppered calamari as appetizers. Both was good, seasoned nicely and promptly served. For our entrées we ordered the shrimp kung pao and brandy's special dinner- medium hot. They were both very hot, although very good, with plenty of shrimp and veggies, and not oily. Next time I may get regular spicy level. The ambience was very strange, sort of 1980's caffeteria with matching pop music on a radio, and just a few customers on a Thursday evening among a sea of empty tables.
