The dim sum is brought to tables to pick from. some of the dim sum we had was: shrimp balls, scallop & shrimp dumplings, siu mai dumplings and shrimp dumplings. the food was fresh and tasty.

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.

I'm not a dim sum expert but I do enjoy it from time to time. I went to Ton Kiang with a group of family/friends, none of whom were Chinese so we did not go for the more exotic (at least by Caucasian standards) items like chicken feet. However, what we did get was very nicely done...the veggies were crisp... More

We enjoy eating dim sum lunch in San Francisco. The restaurants seem to change slowly and maintain their quality and flavor profiles for a long time. Recent experiences at Yank Sing and Great Eastern make for an easy comparison. Number one goes to Great Eastern by a nose and Ton Kiang gets a close second. Yank Sing gets third due... More

The Dim Sum was excellent. Good ratio of filling to wrapper. The pot stickers and dumplings were the best. Noodles and fried rice were also very good. Shanghai style dumplings were also notable. The only thing that surprised me was how rubbery the squid tentacles were in the Wor Wonton soup. All in all, a very good dinner.

I like everything about this place, but I love the dim sum the best. We had a large group which meant we could try everything, including the chicken feet. We made this our official Christmas dinner and the jumping off point for further excursions to Golden Gate Park.

The service was ok, not great,but then again, the place was packed. The BBQ pork soft bun was the best thing on the menu. The other dim sum was good, but it all starts to taste the same after a while. Then again, we ordered every,piece on the menu!
