    When you get to R&G, order the "live battered crab deep-fried and sprinkled with salt & pepper" right away. It's huge and deep fried with tons of extra batter for your enjoyment. Read more

    Seriously addicted to this place and their Kung Pao chicken - have to go at least weekly to dine in or take out 😊. Fried crab and duck are also great

    R&G is one of the few Chinatown spots that delivers. Make sure to try its famed salt-and-pepper crab, Peking duck, walnut prawns, and other Cantonese banquet favorites. Read more

    Excessively decadent & pretty pricey, but my god that whole Salt & Pepper Crab is unbelievable. Salty & crispy with the sweet richness of fresh crab meat. You gotta try it one time.

    For group dining that's a notch above hole-in-the-wall, R&G is one of the few Chinatown spots that delivers. Try its famed salt-and-pepper crab, Peking duck, and walnut prawns. [Eater 38 Member]

    Good Cantonese food in San Francisco. Famous for their salt and pepper crab which is indeed delicious. Go in a group so you can order more food and go family style! Service is fast but super crowded.

    If you're not here for the crab, half a Peking duck + a lighter entree is a great amount for two.

    Authentic Cantonese food, their salt & pepper crab, steam fish and steam egg with clams are really delicious at a reasonable price. Must try!

    Salt and pepper 🦀 crab is like eating fried chicken, but crab! It's pretty insane. That and the 1/2 order or Peking duck is a perfect dinner for two.

    My favorite Chinese restaurant that is not dim sum in SF. We come during crab season and absolutely pig out. Get the black bean crab and ask them to make it spicy.

    CRAB 🦀! Though I'd recommend banning deep fried versions (such a shame for such refined flesh)! Beyond that, delicious EVERYTHING. The place to come when one's China/Canto nostalgia kicks in.

    The Peking duck is really good. The three little treasures with black bean sauce is very tasty and the scallop and steak cubes dish is always a hit. Be prepared for a wait.

    I am very picky with food. I do not eat too much. I eat well! R&G Lounge is one if not the best chinese food I've ever eaten in my life. I strongly recommend the Roasted Duck. It is sublime.

    Everything is good here. From Hong Kong style Chow Main to Salt and Pepper Crab, even a simple Pok Choy with Garlic was delicious!

    Every time I get the baked cod, I taste heaven because this place is the god of baked cod.

    Not very fancy but the food is one of its kind. Try the lychee martini, the king crab and the black cod ❤️

    Definitely make a reservation. Off-menu broccoli and prawn prawns with honey walnuts are best, although they could really add some more walnuts to the dish.

    The charsiu is seriously comparable to Hong Kong standard! And it's a very good lunch deal ($10 for charsiu wonton noodles)

    It's step up in price from the typical Chinatown joint, but the cavernous R&G is a favorite of many and the fried Dungeness has become a signature. [Eater 38 Member]

    Salt and pepper crab was amazing! Also ordered the prawns with walnuts and that didn't disappoint. Can't wait to come back here.

    The roasted chicken is very good, but even the half is enough to share between two or three with a side of steamed rice.

    They have more than 6 or 7 ways to cook crab. From salt and pepper to steamed with egg white and Chinese wine. It's a flat rate no matter how it's prepared! Enjoy.

    R&G Beef and Honey Spare Ribs are great. Overall good food / Decent price. HORRIBLE SERVICE!! .. If this place had better service it would definitely earn that 5th star.

    Food here is excellent but they sell shark fin soup which is incredibly inhumane. Please support in trying to get this otherwise excellent restaurant to take this unnecessary dish off their menu.

    Don't get the salt & pepper crab. It's a deep fried crab, devoid of any taste. Don't expect a good wine recommendation: staff will just point out the most expensive wine as "recommendation"
