How Early to get to Mission Chinese?...

Hi all - I wanted to go to MCF tonight for the first time in a group of four and was hoping someone who had been there could give some advice.

We were hoping to sit down to eat around 7-715 - roughly what kind of wait should I be expecting? What time should I show up to put a name down, etc. Any advice/shared experience is much appreciated!

  1. I would get there around 5:45pm and hope that the wait is only 1 hour or so. By then they will have seated everyone who was already waiting when the doors opened at 5:30pm.
