Z & Y Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Most authentic Sichuan food in SF. Menu has gotten more random in the last 2 years as it's become more popular, to appease the masses.
But the food is still good. The service is no good, but of course that's part of the package, and something you learn to celebrate.
Get the Sichuan dishes and skip all the others. If you don't know what's Sichuan just ask the waiter.
Very disappointing. Both the egg flower and hot and sour soups were almost tasteless. Three of the dishes ordered arrived 15 minutes before the fourth entree. The pop was warm with no offers of ice. I had to ask twice for forks. No soy sauce. No steamed rice with the entrees, and we were asked to move our chairs twice because the table positioning was in the waiters' ways. The dish advertised as prawns was more like medium-sized shrimp. The waiters never even stopped by to ask if the food was ok. To add insult to injury, they tacked their own tip on to the bill, and we were only a party of 4. Never again.
The line was out the door early, which we took as a good sign (and it was). The place was full of couples and families as well as locals from the neighborhood. The food was delicious, but the service wasn't the greatest and the space was pretty bare and a little worse for the wear. Fantastic local neighborhood spot regardless. After eating some very good food, you'll leave with some pretty good stories too.
Outstanding meal. We absolutely loved the dumplings in hot chili oil! The chow mien was excellent, and the beef dish in hot chili oil was also melt in your mouth delicious. We all were so happy that we decided to eat a Z&Y! We will definitely be back! Thank you!!
We chose this restaurant for out of town visitors based on the location and the reviews. Unfortunately this is just a tourist trap. Alice Waters may eat here, but not the food we were served. We went out of our way to ask for their best dishes, but if that's what we were served, ugh. Very sorry we ate here.
Delicious & fresh neighborhood restaurant in the heart of China town. Looked like many locals ate there which is always good. Waiter helped us choose from big menu & loved our dishes.
Spicy wonton ( soft), Chili covered chicken & eggplant with basil.
Go early for lunch if you want a seat. Service fast & friendly.
Z&Y provided a great meal for my family and friends. The restaurant was very busy but they managed to seat my party within 10 minutes of our reservation, even though we had upsized our table from four to SIX just hours before.
The servers were very helpful with helping us select a good array of items from the menu. The food was well-prepared and coursed out. Flavors were bright and clean. The highlights included the dan dan noodles, beef in spicy chili oil, and dry-friend pork intestines. We were very full and happy customers. Even the wine we ordered was delicious -- a welcome surprise at a casual Chinese restaurant! I wholeheartedly recommend Z&Y.
The food was AMAZING! Don't you dare to come without a reservation. The place is tiny tiny. The big BUT is the service, at least today they brought each plate at the time and we were four, that made it complicated. Tip, bring cash and you'll get a 5% discount.
We loved the food so much we dined there 2 days in a row during our 5-day visit; They have an extensive menu and a lot of interesting choices. Everything (10+ different dishes) was delicious. There is a long line, and people wait for a very long time to get a table. Luckily we had a reservation, and were seated promptly. The second day we were 30 min late for our reservation time, but they still honored our reservation and we were seated promptly. This was much appreciated. We will be back.
a full bottle of sake was spilled and replaced but the waiter failed to disclose that we would be charged . also included on the bill was a beer that was ordered but not served . pay close attention to the check . great food, but questionable billing practices
