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...

Being an Asian myself, by the 7th day of trip in United states all I want is something authentic asian like Dim Sum. Hotel recommended us this place. We felt like in Hong Kong as 90% of the patrons speaks Cantonese and the way the restaurant run were just like in Hong Kong. The queue might be long but the... More

Recommended to us by the Hyatt in Union Square for morning Dim Sums. You know its good when the local Chinese there. Similar to Mainland China, carts come over and offer you food as and when you require. A simple no is all that's required so they won't be offended. Dim Sums are great. It gets very, very busy so...

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
