No frills, cheap, and amazing dimsum

I love dimsums but I always feel that a sit-down dimsum is freaking OP (overpriced). When my friend introduced me to this place, I was a like a kid in the candy store and ordered everything I wanted for less than 12 dollars. I ate 3x more than I usually do! Food was really good and fresh and prices... read more

I always stop here when I'm in San Francisco. Just point at what you want and say how many. If it looks pretty, eat it! It's all super delicious!

I never pass a chance to go and get dim sum from here. The food is fresh and very inexpensive. Gets very crowded in the am because all the locals go to pick up there morning orders. Cash only. Parking is a little difficult as well but you can find something if you are a little patient people come and... More

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.

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
