Z&Y Restaurant is a Sichuan restaurant in San Francisco’s Chinatown that focuses on spicy dishes. Chinatown is a Cantonese community, so finding a good Sichuan restaurant here is an unlikely proposition. The place was full so we decided to give it a try.

Cuisine – Sichuan Chinese
Location – Chinatown
Opened – 2008

Service – Z&Y Restaurant was very busy during lunch time and had very few servers making this not a place to go to for lunch.
Verdict – Z&Y Restaurant serves up average Sichuan food, stick to Cantonese food while in Chinatown. Great Eastern next door is far better.
They advertised a 15% off code on yelp but didn’t honor it. If you want good Sichuan food try a place like China Village in Albany or Crouching Tiger in Redwood City.

Signature Dishes – Tan Tan noodles, chicken with explosives chili, couples delight.

Picks:

Z and Y San Francisco Dan Dan noodles

Tan Tan noodles ($6.95) or Dan Dan noodles consisted of soft noodles with it greasy sauce containing real peppers, making it extremely spicy. So spicy it mask the rest of the dish.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)

Z and Y San Francisco steamed pork dumplings

Steamed pork dumplings ($5.95) were average and nothing special. Shanghai Bistro in Millbrae serves up some pretty mean Xiao Long Bao.

Z and Y San Francisco scallion pancakes

Scallion pancake ($5.95) were flaky, crumbled fast, yet lacked much in the way of flavor.

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
