This place is very good, though there is not quite as much variety as other places, and some is a little greasy. But all in all worth stopping at and sampling. The turnip cake is quite good.

The dim sum choices are great. The taste is great and the price is even better. Just went for dim sum earlier in the week at a sit down restaurant in Belmont. Good Luck Dim Sum was just as tasty and the price was way, way, cheaper. I know it's almost like comparing apples with oranges, because one is sit... More

If you wanted to pig out on dimsum, this is the place to go most definitely. We usually stop by here first before we set out for sightseeing in SF, which would be between 10am & 1:00pm. Our favorite is the barbeque steam pork buns and dumplings.

Honestly the best potstickers and sesame buns. Just belly up to the counter, ask someone to try to explains what's what, and order carry out. A great place for no frills Chinese dim sum on the go

I'll start by saying I love dim sum and have eaten it all my life. I know the difference between good and mediocre dim sum. This place was the latter. With the understanding that we were headed to a recommended, not fancy, cheap eats kinda place, we were still utterly disappointed. The food was cold. In a bun to filling... More

Based on reviews and location, we headed for Good Luck Dim Sum late on a Saturday morning. The line wasn't as long as I expected, and with the expert ladies filling orders, it went quickly. They are obviously ready for tourists since there is a paper menu for you to circle what you want before you get to the head... More

My favorite food in the world is dim sum. Avoid going to Chinatown and head to the inner richmond for much better flavors and selections and Good Luck. Since it is always packed, the food is constantly being made and cooked, so it's always fresh from the kitchen. Expect a wait, especially on the weekends. Know what you want ahead... More

This restaurant is in the smaller Chinatown in SF, so it may not be as easy to spot. Limited parking and even more limited space to eat, so great for take-out. Cheap, fast, varied, fabulous - tastes as dim sum should. Did I say cheap?!

Excellent dim sum, super cheap. If you want take-out dim sum, this is the place to go. Lines can be long. We go there all the time. Kids love the potstickers, sui mai, and shrimp dumplings. Tried the sesame balls which are delicious and sweet. Limited English, but you can order by filling out a form.
