18th street castro location
with helpful if somewhat uninvolved staff, the meal is served quickly and is well prepared but lacks a bit of flavour. Textures are good.
Nice average chinese food in a somewhat unusual location for this in SF.
Only place open on chistmas : a big plus
very reasonable prices

As title states, this was our first time at restaurant & we were more than pleased with quality of food, presentation, & flavor. Tried 3 different dishes (fish, chicken, pork) + 1 appetizer. All delicious. Hope to return again.

I have been eating at Brandy Ho's for over 20 years, its a great place for Hunan style cooking. The Castro location is cleaner and more chic than the institution on Columbus on the edge of Chinatown/North Beach but I think the food is superior at the other location. The Castro location was good, the oyster appetizer in particular was excellent - big lumpy meaty oysters not small pathetic fried oysters you would find elsewhere. The hot & sour soup was generous bowl but it was a bit bland for my taste, I added some dried chilis to perk it up a bit. The three delicacy entree was good but also I think more flavorful at Columbus. This is probably one of best Chinese restaurants in the Castro, but San Francisco has so many more!

Quite authentic for being such a touristy chain.
