My husband and I have gone to Kathy's about a dozen times now, often with friends or family. We all really like it. This is some of the best "light" Chinese food in SF, and we've tried a lot of places. It compares to Alice's, Eliza's and Eric's - super fresh with great, non-oily sauces and nice presentation. Try the Red Dumplings and the Ginger Eggplant Chicken. The service is prompt and courteous, and street parking is quite easy. My only (minor) complaint is they don't have brown rice as an option. Anyway, go there and enjoy!
Pros: food, service, not crowded
Cons: no highchairs
