This place is primarily a slightly upscale dim sum shop, but they also have a regular menu, and my wife and I ordered off that. I had a large bowl of oriental soup, while my wife had the salmon fried rice The food was very good, seasoned properly, plentiful, and brought quickly. I was vacillating between Average and Very Good... More

I generally do not like Chinese food but for some reason, my friend and I saw this and thought "let's try it". I first had to make sure that they did not cook using peanut oil - they don't. Yay. Now both times I went I had Singapore rice noodles. I asked for it to be vegetarian both times, ie... More

We were looking for dim sum on a Saturday morning. This place was close so we took a shot. We were very pleased. The restaurant was very clean with an open kitchen. The food and service were excellent. A little pricey but we were not disappointed.

Nice restaurant very close to my hotel. Had soup, yummy and Peking duck, was not as expected, but good. The pancakes were thicker, the poultry in pieces. Lots of dishes on the menu.

Visit San Francisco a lot and just thought I'd try this restaurant across the road from the hotel. Always forget to read reviews and know I should check before trying a new place. Food is average, portion sizes are very European (which is fine for me). Biggest issue is they do the old add service trick.... In my book that... More

We ordered sweet & sour chicken, chicken satay and something with beef. The size of the portion was normal. Service Personal was nice. The food was okay but not more. We wouldn't come back. Attention!! They already add 15% gratuity to the bill automatically. If you pay with credit card, you'll recieve a new bill with a new line which... More

Went for supper , ordered 3 dishes, the food was tasty but portions are small. I think priced are comparable to other Chinese restaurants except for the portion size. Service was okay, will try Chinatown on next visit.

The food was just okay and overpriced. We ate off of small saucers. I think you eat off of saucers to appear you have more food than you actually have. I was in a party of three and they added 15% gratuity on my bill. I told them that tip is usually added for groups of six and it's not... More

Sadly we didn't read reviews before we ate at Tian Sing. All of the complaints that have been voiced were experienced in our visit. Minimal portion sizes, mediocre food, exorbitant prices for the amount of food, attempt to double tip. The restaurant looks very nice. We should have been tipped off when there were no people inside eating. Live and... More

After I walked out the door,... More
