Barack Obama Gets Chinese Takeaway In San Francisco...And His Bum Pinched (PICTURES)

President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to a Chinese restaurant in San Franciso this week - and received a very warm reception indeed.

Ordering two bags of dim-sum from the Great Eastern Restaurant, the President mingled with the owners and diners who were enjoying plates of lo mein when he arrived.

His unannounced appearance prompted cries of "Obama! Obama!", KGO810 said.

Two women dove in for a cuddle and managed to sneak in a squeeze of the Presidential bottom.

If he minded, Obama didn't show it, and was pictured leaving the restaurant beaming, on Thursday.

According to the San Franciso Chronicle, Obama and his entourage ordered shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, steamed pork buns, Shanghai dumplings and stuffed mushrooms.

The President is in the area attending various fund-raising events.
