Typical Chinese food. Was convenient to hotel. I'm not a fan of gratuity included in the bill for a table of 2. They would have done much better had I been given the opportunity to tip on the quality of service, which was good.

The food was okay and served quickly. However, what I didn't like was as soon as we sat down the waitress wheeled up a trolley full of appetisers trying to get us to buy them straight off. If I go to a restaurant I want to order from the menu and not be press-ganged into buying reheated food off a... More

In the heart of downtown Tian Sing is a reasonably large restaurant that looks fairy ordinary. The menu has a large selection and the service was prompt and efficient. The food was very good and came to $22 per head including drinks

After all the seafood like oysters, lobster, and the like, I was looking for s.th. else, and I found it just a few steps from Union Sq at Tian Sing. They will come with a cart to your table, and you will see what you will choose from. Then it will be taken to be heated, before you will enjoy... More

The food was not tasty. I was there around 5:30 PM but should have noticed I was only the second table occupied and moved on. There are other restaurants just up the street. The service was slow. BEWARE: they add a 15% service charge and that it is NOT noted on the menu or anywhere else.

While I have had Chinese food countless times across the country, I had never actually had dim sum until I visited Tian Sing. It was a fun experience with satisfying, tasty food. I highly recommend trying the Shanghai style steamed dumplings! The staff were friendly and pretty attentive. My only complaint is that they were out of the dessert we... More

This was the best place we ate in San Francisco. Never having eaten Thai food before the place was recommended by a San Franciscan native so we went, three times!! The value is amazing as it the flavour of their foods. So friendly people too and they remembered us the second night so a major plus there. Well worth a... More

Do not waste your money at this place. The dim sum is not worth the price. You are better off buying some frozen dumplings from the grocery store. The fried noodles are very oily and good luck finding anything that resembles a piece of meat. They add an automatic 15% service charge to the bill without telling you. Presumptuous! We... More

I had dinner here and wasn't disappointed. Given the location I was afraid it would be a tourist trap. It definitely wasn't and the food was certainly good and service friendly.The starters were going around on a trolly which is efficient but not that hygenic and good for freshness & temperature. Pity. Main course nice and a decent portion. Staff... More
