Hong Kong Style Dim Sum and Tea

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... read 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

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

This is a large restaurant in the heart of Chinatown. I typically avoid large restaurants but this one was full of chinese, we were the only non-chinese patrons. Service is very good and the Dim-Sum is th best I have had this side of the Pacific.

So, if you want to do dim sum while in SF, this is the place to do it. The staff is great, it is all locals (I counted 4 of us round eyes in a place with over 130 people eating), and the food is good. But, here is the challenge--you have to be willing to dive in and enjoy... More

While visiting a very nice Asian food store in the Chinatown area, we asked a clerk if she could recommend a good restaurant. One of her favorites is the New Asia Restaurant and we felt like it was a real find. It is quite large and such a delight to see big tables of families enjoying a great variety of... More

This is not American Chinese food, so don't go expecting to order off a menu from a wait person who attends to your every need. This is more like very well organized chaos with a floor manager directing traffic. The food is brought to the table on a cart in small portions. Each cart may have one to four different... More

We went there for Dim Sum and was treated horribly. I am of Asian decent but do not speak Chinese. When we asked to see what was on the tray that was being pushed around the waitress actually brush us off and pushed the cart away. The few dishes we had were good but just were not able to get...

Staying in Chinatown

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.
