Our place

We are located in an alleyway in the heart of Chinatown -- on Commercial St. between Grant and Kearny. Right above us is a Kumon, just to remind everyone that the Kumon to business ownership pipeline is alive and well. We infused a lot of our own personality into decorating the space and hope you like it as much as we do. There is no shortage of ridiculously good-looking Canto celebs to feast your eyes on while you feast.

Four Kings chefs in the restaurant

Meet the team

Franky and Mike have both been cooking professionally for well over a decade and their combined years of experience is now a fully formed adult of drinking age. Bonded by their shared Cantonese heritage and love of eating (but mostly drinking), so begins the Four Kings origin story.

Their aim is to create a menu of food they grew up eating made up of flavors that elicit fond memories tucked under an overpass or down narrow alleys by the side of the road. Their food is not fussy or uptight and is meant to be enjoyed with friends (or foes) over a tall glass of beer.

    Franky Ho


    Personality Type:


    Cooked at:

    Champa Garden, Maven, China (yes, the country), Mister Jiu's

    Franky is a walking encyclopedia* of Chinese food knowledge, and was most notably named Chef de Cuisine of a Michelin Star and James Beard winning Chinese restaurant all at the ripe age of 28. Needless to say we are walking in the midst of a real life main character from a cooking anime.

    *For all you young'ns, an encyclopedia is basically google before the internet, but worse, because you have to flip through volumes of books just to find one thing. Come to think of it, Franky is better than an encyclopedia

    Personality Type:

    Phoenix Suns fan

    Cooked at:

    Bazaar, Son of a Gun, SAAM, Bestia, Mister Jiu's

    After graduating with a mechanical engineering degree, Mike completely forsook his destiny of becoming yet another Asian stereotype to pursue cooking; bringing absolute dishonor to his family Mulan style. Since verse-jumping into the raccacoonie universe, he collected his fair share of infinity stones across the LA and SF food scenes, until finally finding someone to do laundry dishes and taxes with.
