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

We ordered 3 dishes and one dim sum; the portion size is surprisingly SMALL and there was not much beef and seafood in my beef and seafood plate; ordered asparagus is not asparagus -- waiter called it 'Chinese asparagus', a small bowl of white rice is charged $1.50; luckily tap water is not charged. After I walked out the door,... More

honestly, the only thing that impressed me was the speed at which our orders were served. we were really starved and looking for asian food while touring san francisco that even the high prices in the menu posted outside did not deter us from entering. another plus for this resto is it's location - next to powell street where the...

when we visited this place, at first I was surprised by the modernness. Normally the chinese restaurants are all the same. The service was ok, but not great, because we had to asked them every time to come to the table if we wanted more drinks or a dessert etc. The food was ok. But then we recievd the bill... More

This restaurant serves dim sum all day long. The variety of dim sum dishes seems to be a bit on the modest side. You can get better Chinese food elsewhere, but this is not a bad choice for Union Sq. Of course, you are paying Union Sq. prices.

I can't complain about the food which was nice but the service was not to standard. Then we found that we had been automatically charged with a 15% service charge. There was only two of us dining and no warning anywhere that this was the practice in the restaurant. When we enquired about the 15% service charge and if we... More

The food in this seemingly fine Chinese restaurant is not better than the one in your corner. Yet their price is three times higher. Be ready to be helped by rude waitresses, that will give you looks if you spill a bit of your drink. There are quite a few alternatives near by, I would go somewhere else next time... More
