Stopped in with my wife for dinner based on TripAdviser ratings and was not disappointed. It doesn’t look particularly amazing but the food is fresh and delicious and plentiful. I recommend the chicken gon-pou.

This has been our 'go-to' place whenever in SF for the last 20 years and we were so disappointed. They have clearly toned down their spicing significantly and even when we stressed that we like things spicy, it was not. In previous years we would have tears running down our faces which is what we were looking for.The hot and spicy soup just wasn't you know - 'spicy'. We even sent back some of the sauces to have them made more spicy and it was still not even scratching the surface.The staff were great and friendly and it was nice to be sitting near the kitchen and watch the food being cooked from scratch but this place has lost its edge. In such a competitive Chinese market-place this restaurant always stood out for its Hunan and its spice. Now it is just like any of the others.

My family of four visited here during our recent trip to SF. We LOVE the fresh and spicy food that is the foundation of Hunan cuisine. But sadly it was not to be.

Oddly enough it was the Chinese food you can get anywhere that was best. The steamed dumplings, won-ton soup, and general's chicken were all reasonably tasty. But the Hunan dishes we ordered - shredded pork w/veggies, smoked duck, and lamb w/noodles - ranged from mediocre to bad. And it didn't seem to matter how many 'peppers' a dish was rated - it all came out mild.

In short, there are so many good restaurants a block or three away I can't imaging ever dining here again. But if for some reason you happen to find yourself eating here don't fear - just stick to the normal Chinese/American dishes.

Enjoyed a nice 20 minute stroll from the Union Square area to Brandy Ho’s. The taste of the food wasn’t necessarily unique but it was toward the best of any Chinese restaurants we have experienced and the variety of options from appetizers, soups and salads, and main courses was very good. We enjoyed how well managed the restaurant is and the lively ambience.

we had five people in our party...the service was fast and she was ready to take our orders.. we order a lot of different plates of food and all of it was wonderful!! the veggies still crunch. The fried foods were rocking it.. They must of used fresh oil because everything we ordered was really GREAT! the foods were not dripping in oil and sauces wonderful. we had pot stickers, egg rolls, chow mein, spinach salad with bean sprouts, rice and more I can't remember every thing all was yummie...I will go back.
