Best Chinese lunch for 6 in SF?
Looking for a place to take the crew for a holiday lunch tomorrow, and was thinking of ordering one of those multi-course meals found at most Chinese restaurants in SF. Is there one out there that is better than the rest for under $100 for 6? Parking would certainly be a plus!
I haven't heard anything about Dragon River before - it's only been mentioned in a couple of chowhound threads and according to the reviews on yelp, it's Hakka cuisine.
What are your favorite dishes?
To answer the OPs question, I think going to the Richmond is a good idea, since it's easy to park there. Also possible is Lucky River near Glen Park/Sunnyside - the multi-course set meals there include great pork chops.

Easy to park in the Richmond? You're kidding, right? The Richmond is the only place I've ever given up and valet parked because I couldn't find a place for blocks.
I think by far the best lunch for Chinese lunch for six is the Chinatown Selection menu at Great Eastern.
Minced Seafood with Lettuce Soup
Shredded Dried Scallop Soup
Sauteed Sea Conch & Scallops with Yellow Chives
Fresh Dungeness Crab with Xo Sauce
Sauteed Soft Bean Cake & Chinese Mushrooms with Tender Greens
Dessert & Fresh Fruit
You can park in the Portsmouth Square garage.

At lunch it's pretty easy to park in the Richmond. I was there yesterday and had no problem. There are lots of metered spots especially, although those require lots of quarters. Dinnertime is a different story though.
The Great Eastern lunch sounds very good, I think that's a good suggestion too.
