Description & Atmosphere
Sam Wo — a famous Chinatown "dive" and San Francisco institution — was featured in May 2007 as a "co-sponsor" to "Late Night with Conan O'Brien in San Francisco" TV show.

The restaurant has been around forever — well over 100 years. Don't expect much in the way of decor or atmosphere.
