Came here with the family on a Friday for lunch, it was packed!! But we got seated right away the place is huge. Truly felt authentic, all the other tables were speaking Chinese, I think my table was the only one not speaking the language. The menu sticks to the dim sum basics/classics (nothing... read more

Our Family Association often carry our meetings there. Try the 10 people dinner menus- bang for your dollars. Like so many of Chinatown restaurants, there are good bargain meals to be had, Happy Chinese New Year (Monkey)

Wanted dim sum in Chinatown while visiting San Fran. Asked a couple of policemen where to go and they guided us to New Asia. It was packed on a Sat. morning but they really know what they are doing and we only waited about 15 mins. There were only two tables in the whole place who were not Asian, us... More

Typical dim sum place, crowded and noisy. Food was good but not the best. Don't be deceived by the steamy carts circulating throughout thinking the food is hot. Most of the food was luke warm unless we were able to get it from the ladies that bring the food to distribute to the circulating carts.

A very authentic place but do not go solo. I did not realize dim sum is meant for sharing. It was very good but I was not able to try a variety because each serving is for multiple servings. I do recommend the shrimp dumpling over the pork.

This is one of the last big classic dim sum restaurants in San Francisco Chinatown. They can accommodate a lot of people so the wait is not as long. We didn't even wait for a table when we walked in. They do serve a variety of food from the small dim sum plates to dishes that you can order during... More

Visited this restaurant with friends who come here often. I must say I was impressed with the service and the availability of different foods. Since I do not go to these types of restaurants, I let my friends order for me. Everything we had was delicious, so I can't recommend any one dish. But I will recommend the custard tarts... More

Went today, most of this was my fault in that I rushed in to a place to eat. Should've had a map to find our way around and not rushed but we were pretty hungry. Found this place and went in, looked OK, whatever that means! Initially I thought it was just dim sum and I was ready to leave... More

We wanted to try Dim Sam in China Town. The restaurants is very large and they have a big variety to try. They do a great business it was full and many Chinese eating there. We live in Panama and have a Dim Sam every week at home and in Lung Fung Restaurant in Panama City. They served large plates... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
