Yummy dim sum

We were staying around the corner and so took a chance on this place- what a great find! Really delicious dim sum (fried shrimp dumplings were to die for) and a cracking Singapore noodle! Worth a visit

Our group of seven enjoyed a mid-week dim sum lunch here. Even the kids liked the pork and beef! Nothing too exotic for dim sum newbies but all well-executed. Great prices!

The greatest Dim Sum in SF. You are surrounded by Chinese family groups loudly enjoying their meals, which is what a real Dim Sum experience is all about. Good food, good value and our go to place to take out-of-town visitors.

My father took me to the oldest dim sum house in SF when I was 8. I've been going there (and eventually taking dates there) for 30 years. I've have dim sum all over the West Coast, sometimes as the only non-Chinese speaker in the place, where I've experienced some of the most brusque, impatient service in my life. I... More

This restaurant offers some of the finest and most varied selection of dim sum anywhere. Still brought out on trays and carts you get to pick as the sumptuous dished go by. I'll say on my last trip a week ago the selection was not as varied. btw Dim Sum is a brunch/lunch meal. If you are a lover of... More

With family and some of our medical providers in SFO, we visit several times a year. Each trip we go to Ton Kiang for lunch and its superb dim sum. Nice to see a place maintain itself in every way, with the food still the top, warm, delicious product it has always been. Service is decent but not A+, but... More

Come here for excellent and varied dim sum at half the price of the downtown options. Not a fancy setting, but who cares when there's such good eating to be had at bargin prices.
