We came across this restaurant while trying to find something more authentic, off the beaten Chinatown track and we weren't disappointed. Nearly everyone who came in while we were there were obviously regulars - always a good sign - and it was good to see they received the same brusque but efficient service that we did! Good selection of dishes... More

Small Vietnamese restaurant located in the heart of Chinatown. Gets crowded during lunch, but turn around pretty fast and food comes out pretty quickly. Food is delicious, I always order the #40 dry vermicelli with imperial rolls and bbq pork. Also the spring rolls (pork and shrimp) is a great appetizer.

Looking around for a reasonable restaurant which caters for vegetarian /gluten free dishes and we were pleasantly satisfied with the food ordered . Chosed the Pho vegetarian soup dish which was presented in a big bowl with the rice noodles and vegetables and very good price at 15.76 dollars for 2 bowls. Service pleasant and friendly. Recommended for a quick... More

Probably the worst meal I've ever had in my life. Just off the main road, we thought we would try this authentic looking Vietnamese restaurant. Well the starters were awful but when the main meal arrived it's was utter rubbish. The starters had no taste and the soup my daughter ordered was like a bowl of water with left over... More

I went for some pho for the first time with friends. Warning! The small is really big. For only costing $6.70 it was an unexpectadly large amount of food. The service was slow, but in their defense it does take a while to eat 😃

Stopped in on recommendation of our concierge. We had pho and two chicken dishes. All good food. Things to note. They don't serve any alcoholic beverages and if you have to go to the bathroom, go after you eat cause the site of what's downstairs will gross you out sufficiently to ruin your appetite. In a state with more laws... More

Menu was provided. The servers speak English, Vietnamese,... More

I travel to San Francisco a few times a year on business and this was the second time I've eaten at Golden Flower which I found through on line reviews looking for Vietnamese food. While it had strong reviews, it was not as crowded as the other more touristy type Chinatown restaurants. It is what it is in Chinatown. Not... More

The food here is very good. The service is horrible. It's a hole in the wall but all the locals come here. It's always crowded. They need a lesson in customer service though. I'm sure there are other establishments in the vicinity as this location is in china town. Next visit I won't come back.
