Chinese rehearsal dinner near Union Square/Chinatown [San Francisco]

abstractpoet | Apr 28, 201504:51 PM

So I've been tasked with helping friends pick a Chinese restaurant for their rehearsal dinner, with the stipulation that they'd prefer it to be within walking distance of the Marriott in Union Square, which is where most of their guests are staying. I figure Chinatown is probably OK, as are other contenders in the downtown/Union Square area — though I'm sure it's slim pickings in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. (Spots in the Richmond/Sunset are probably out of the running.)

They're expecting somewhere between 60 and 100 guests, and they'd prefer a private room if possible. Looking to spend no more $50/pp, all inclusive. It doesn't have to be a traditional banquet format either, but that's the rough budget they're working with.

Any thoughts? R&G Lounge seems tough for that budget. Maybe Great Eastern? I don't think I've done a Chinese banquet in SF proper.
