Great place for lunch in China town

Large menu, a lot of seating, and very tasty Dim Sum. Food was excellent. It was very hard to understand how to order, since everything was brought out on serval different carts as more of an el lacarte. Highly reccomended versus some of the other overcroweded places near by.

It's Friday night in Chinatown and the locals are ballroom dancing. Live music brings them out to the dance floor, some are dressed in colorful evening clothes, while others are comfortable in their jeans. My Hong Kong massage therapist chose this restaurant for me because I enjoy the taste of duck meat and the crispy skin. Friendly waitresses push rolling... More

Authentic Asian cuisine right in the middle of China town. A little hectic, with a minor language barrier. Food was tasty and plenty. Worth trying. I would say 3.5.

LIttle had changed and it was like visiting an old friend. Many locals dine here. I go for the dim sum which are served on carts by old aunties it seems. They speak broken english and... More

If you were like me craving for good dim sum, this is a must visit restaurant on your bucket list. This restaurant is in the Chinatown of San Francisco. We had a local who recommended us this restaurant and we had very good dim sum here. The price was good too. There were seven of us and the check was... More

This a large Chinese restaurant and was very popular with the locals. We went for Dim Sum and have vowed to never return. We have never eaten such poor quality Dim Sum. They would be out of business if they were in Vancouver BC. We came to San Fran on a Princess cruise ship and we were talking to a... More

It was Sunday and we wanted to have "Hong Kong Style" Dim Sum and tea. Since the Empress of China closed it was difficult to find such a place as most dim sum in Chinatown today is takeout only. New Asia offers this traditional type of dining. Note, this is traditional Chinese Dim Sum and Tea. This is where you... More

Sorry to say, as this was recommended to us, that this restaurant is simply terrible. Night we were there there was a 'party' going on, and they had the worst ever karaoke singing at high volume. Really they should have shut the place down for the party, and I wish they had. Everything dirty, menus, carpets & floors, and the... More

Years ago this was the place to go to for dim sum even though it was never very clean. Now it is even filthier and the quality of the food is very poor. The selection of the dim sum is lacking and by the time it comes to you it is cold. Sorry but try to find another place, don't... 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.
