We had our wedding here on September 20, 2014 and James and his team did a PHENOMENAL job hosting us. I am not kidding when I say I am a control freak; I presented James with a four page list of notes (revised three times), added on things that are not typical of Chinese banquet style weddings (open bar with signature drinks, dessert bar, wine pouring at the beginning of dinner service, brought in outside chairs and a dance floor)...and James handled all of it with ease.

I admit, I was worried because of the change of ownership and some of the reviews on Yelp. And it probably made me more anal attentive. But again James totally assured me and didn't judge my bridezilla behavior at all!

Day of wedding went without a hitch. All of my requests were granted. The food was really, really good and my family is a total food snob, especially of Asian food. The banquet room was transformed with the lighting and chiavari chairs (Inlight Lighting). James brought in a white dance floor that was a fraction of the price of what we was originally going to pay for.

The open bar was set up outside in the patio area, which increased the square footage of our party...and got our loud, party friends away from our family. :) At the end of the night, our friends said it was one of the best and memorable weddings. And really, we have James and Mission 261 much to thank for that.

One more note: Go with the restaurant's preferred vendors. They can get you a great deal on decor. In general, Mission 261 is very, very reasonable with pricing. THANK YOU so much James and team!

Picked Mission 261 because its in the old mission district and not in some Chinese shopping center. My in laws loved this venue because of the vaulted ceilings. The managers were nice but takes some negotiating in Chinese to get exactly what you want. They worked with us on the table linen and napkin selection and offers a great selection. Food was served promptly on the wedding day and got lots a positive remarks regarding the lobster and mango pudding.
