We love the Chili House.
Norman and Walter are outstanding servers.
They also make outstanding recommendations.
Chili House is simply amazing. This is no ordinary Chinese restaurant. Every dish is incredible. We were with our young son so some of the extra spicy dishes were not going to work out. Even the basil chicken and Mongolian beef were sublime.
Very authentic and delicious food. We enjoyed the tea service performance. The restaurant was full with locals which indicates not only good food but good value. Chili House appears to be a great place for special celebrations.
Had a reservation but there was still an hour wait. Food was great once we sat down.
Went in for lunchtime dim sum and was not disappointed. I need to come back for dinner to try some of the main specialties.
Chili House was great as always. The duck is beyond compare, and the the menu offers many other wonderful dishes. Especially love the dumplings and the eggplant.
Excellent food, very good service for an extremely busied restaurant in Richmond District, San Francisco. Highly recommend this restaurant. Advance reservation through OpenTable is also recommended. Do not try to call to make reservation.
Started with the Peking Duck which was good but will try other dishes next time. Great service. Excellent food.
Great dim sum and Szechuan options - make reservations, there was a long wait without one!
Love love LOVE! Everything from service to flavor. Nothing is actually “spicy” so no fret you non-pepper tolerant folks, you can eat here too. Their chili oil is like no other! Service is always pleasant, however I have been coming here for over 8years. Never disappoint. My favorites are;
Explosive chicken, basil eggplant (we order it fried), hot n’ sour soup, beef pancake, scallion pancake, and those cold peanut noodles (I don’t eat it, I’m allergic, but my friend orders it ALL the time). We get water, bottle of wine, AND tea. I’m a bit of a wine snob and their Riesling is great; not sweet like typical Riesling wines. Love this spot. Give it a go! Xièxiè
We made a reservation for dinner which was a good thing because this place is always busy! We got seated very quickly, had excellent service and enjoyed our dinner. We ate family style sharing all the dishes - everything was tasty and came out piping hot! We particularly enjoyed the lamb chops, the fried rice, the tan tan noodles and the string beans.
The food was to die for. I brought my brother and his family and they loved it. The Peking Duck is a must here, but be sure to reserve it, as they have a limited number of ducks per night. The Chicken with Explosive Chili Pepper, is amazing. Overall, a great meal. My brother and his family were extremely impressed and we all left full and happy.
The food and the service was outstanding. The duck was delicious. We also had dumplings, kung pao shrimp, and house fried rice. Every dish was tasty and cooked very well. Our server prepared the first round of duck pancakes, which are made in house and were very light. Overall, a wonderful experience and will go back.
delicious and good service. booking was convenient as well.
Amazing, always get the Peking duck and Mongolian bwef
Our first time dinning at Chili House was a nice surprise. Loved the dumplings and Moo Shu Pork. Enjoyed the cucumber salad and Peking duck. All very good. Did not order the walnut prawns but we'll the next time as they looked great. All in all a very good lunch..
Chili House is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. There’s several restaurants in the clement street area to choose from, but this restaurant is one of the better ones in terms of price, quality of food and ambiance. We highly recommend it!
Excellent food and outstanding service.
Way to go Norman you always provide excellent recommendations and service.
Great place! Presently surprised and happy with The food and service.
Yummy Peking Duck with great Sichuan and Northern Chinese dishes. Go if you are crazy for some authentic Chinese dishes.
As always, the food is fabulous and service very friendly and warm. Pot stickers, spicy dumplings and duck are awesome...love the place!
Good food, spicy, different from usual fare
Yummy food this restaurant got! I wish they treat online reservation more serious. I came in 15 mins before my reservation and had to wait and fight for my table for 45 mins. Not good..
Excellent duck. All dishes were Siberia. Pot stickers amazing
Peking duck is great！
Very authentic, speedy friendly service. Excellent Peking duck plus a Peking opera performance as a bonus.
Great place for a family celebration - super food - spicy - great service - lots of new things to try.
Worst Chinese restaurant I have ever had. Poor quality ingredients and badly prepared.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in town and food is always excellent although I am not necessarily into every single item on the menu. Service is of good quality as well although it can be slow sometimes when the place is super crowded but this will never stop me from coming! Must try their spicy beef and tendon appetizer, hand-made dumplings, and beef hand-wrapped pancakes!
It was good but not as good as the other 10 times I was there. Portions were smaller too.
We had moved our reservation to 9:30. When we got there we were told the kitchen closes at 9:30 and the chefs were already eating. Stumped on why they snd Open Table would have a 9:30 slot that is not possible.
in general food very good. service typical of chinese restaurant, although the people are very nice and try to be helpful for nonasian speakers. only thing i don't recommend, unfortunately were the dumplings.
Food was good. Men's bathroom was very dirty. Should do a better cleaning job.
We had a group of 11 so got lots of choices that the waiter recommended and he dialed it in!
He also explained several dishes that were a bit different. Food was OUTSTANDING and the staff
was great! Love this place!
It was a good experience. I would have appreciated the server checking in a bit more often.
Had the food been spicy , as it claimed it was supposed to be, it would have been good. But, even after specifically asking for the food to be very spicy, it was not. Disappointing.
I have to go to Chili House every few weeks. The food is delicious and fresh, and the service is excellent. Jennifer is there all the time, and is so welcoming!
Great service. The food was good. Lots of big parties and a bit loud. Excellent wine selection.
They don’t honor Open table reservation. We came on time and showed restaurant our reservation. But we were told to wait and had to wait for about one hour. We had to sign up on the waiting sheet to get a table. There was another group of people who “claim” to have 6pm reservation but showed nothing. The restaurant honored them stead of us.
