This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at the Ritz. We thought it sounded pretty great! The place was packed when we walked in at about 12:30. The restaurant also doubles as a night club at night. My husband is half Japanese, half Indian and I am Caucasian. When we first arrived I was literally the only Caucasian... More

Hi Again All. This restaurant has the best Dim Sum in Chinatown San Francisco. My wife and I were the only non-Chinese people out of the hundreds having lunch there. This is done in the style of mainland China where the carts with the various dishes come around and you choose what you want and your ticket is stamped. I... More

Really enjoyed lunch here! It was recommended to us by a local Chinese man as the most authentic place to get Chinese food in Chinatown SF +great value! I'm not Asian, or an expert in Chinese food, but I really enjoyed it :)

I came to this place since there was a long line of waiting at Great Eastern (Obama visited before). I ordered a pot of tea and five dim sum dishes. The total damage was 27 bucks- hefty for lunch, right? Soup dumplings were not made well, since half of them were broken before consuming. The skin of shrimp dumplings were... More

We entered the restaurant, got a number and where shown a table rather quick. But no waiter appeared. Instead there came trollycarts with various chineese food items. We were hungry, we picked some, and then som more. We had dumplings, baked pork, ribs, rice and varuous sauces. I love to try some crispy duck in an all chinese restaurant, but... More

Whenever I make a visit to San Francisco, I always want to stop by Chinatown and enjoy some dim sum before leaving. This place has held up to the test of time although they went thru an ownership change a while ago, the taste is still there. If you're daring to try chicken feet, come to this place!

Always busy and always good. We always make it a point to stop at the New Asia in San Francisco's Chinatown (just down a steps from Stockton down Pacific Ave). Not knowing Cantonese nor Mandarin is not issue as the staff welcomes and enjoys explaining each of the delicious "little treats" (What Dim Sum means BTW) to those not familiar.... More

My husband and I were visiting San Francisco for our wedding from michigan. We had read about dim sum and really wanted to try it. To say it was a dining experience would be an understatement. We were the only English speaking non Chinese in the place (and it's a very large space). When we arrived we got a number... More

Chinatown means and stop at the New Asia for Dim Sum! It is the best in Chinatown and now that we know that all of the corrupt politicians and Big Chinatown Gang leaders do their business there over lunch....that is an even bigger endorsement. I am glad that the food is good enough for corrupt state senators and crime lords... More

My Chinese aunt and grandmother have been going here for 20 years. I'm 1/2 and my wife is "white". We were the only ones which is always a good sign. Located off Pacific and Stockton in Chinatown. Dim sum had the typical offerings and was served from carts. Service adequate. The roof was leaking, but this was the first rain... More
