You can't go wrong. Great service, extensive menu, nice view of the street, and everything I ordered was delicious: dim sum steamed rolls, duck, barbecue ribs, seafood bowl - there were three of us. I would go back again.

The atmosphere at the Four Seas is worth stopping for dim sum. It's on the second floor on Grant Street, if you can get a table at the windows you can watch Chinatown go by. The dim sum is OK, if average for San Francisco (which means it's very good in most other cities). I recommend the steamed barbeque pork... More

This restaurant was one of my favorites in the past for Dim sum. Today it was just awful. The service was terrible. Don't waste your time or money here. I am shocked it was so bad

We had stopped at this restaurant after a place that had been recommended was no longer open. This is on the main drag on Grant Avenue in Chinatown. We ordered several orders of Dim Sum and split an order of stir fry vegetables with scallops, shrimp and squid. The food was excellent and the entree had a large portion. The... More

We ate in this restaurant because we were to meet at this location to begin a tour. We ordered Lemon Chicken, a combination of Chicken and Shrimp and Cashewnut Chicken. Non of the sauces for each dish had much flavor and the Lemon Chicken was mostly dry and tough. Two of us thought it may have even been reheated for... More

Lots of red in this interior. The service was fine. The food was very good. Just what I expected for the heart of Chinatown.

We love dim sum and were so excited to eat some Dim Sum in China Town, San Francisco. I guess the warning should have come when we entered the restaurant and there only 2 other people there. The dim sum was awful, obviously reheated and the meat/fish content non existant. The staff were miserable. I never thought it was possble... More
