Pretty good Dim Sum

The food is solid. The kids loved it. We were looking for a place to experience dim sum in China town, but the couple of places we were pointed to looked a little bit dirty. I know it's part of the experience I guess, but I don't want to be grossed out in the back of my mind while I... read more

Excellent food! was craving dumplings so I did some research on line and everyone raved about the shrimp and chive dumplings here. We mapped it out and headed to it. The reviews were right. They were awesome. We also ordered some spring rolls and fried rice - it was all delicious! The young waiter said that what we ordered was... More

Had broccoli beef takeout. The beef was tender but the broccoli a little soggy. It was late night just before closing and perhaps it had been sitting in a pan for awhile. And the flavor was a little "funky," can't quite describe it other than that. And at $13, it seemed a bit "pricey," even though I know beef prices... More

Food came out piece by piece. My meal was served 10 minutes before my husband's and the appetizers came out after that. Also, the screaming toddler apparently associated with the establishment was literally directly behind my seat. Even though most of the seats were open. The food itself was average.

we found this place walking around. Looked popular so we tried it out. Prompt friendly service with pot of tea delivered to the table soon after we sat down. Tried two different dishes plus mixed entrees and enjoyed it all. Meals coming out of the kitchen looked good. Prices reasonable.

It's hard to find true Shanghai dumplings in the US. New York has some great spots; this place does a solid job with their soup dumplings. The individual dumplings were rather small compared to others I've enjoyed, though. Consider getting an extra plate to make sure you fill up. Good service and this place is in the heart of Chinatown.

➕: Good food, attentive waiters. Authentic chinese. ➖: very warm and humid indoors - to a degree that it almost ruined the meal. All in all a good experience. Recommended.

I searched this restaurant out because it was reviewed/advertised as not using MSG. Not so sure this is true!? It seems to be a family-owned place. Everything was good. We ha Shanghai Noodles, Mu Shu Pork, Egg Rolls and Dumplings. They have a good wine list>

Love this place! Busy and there is a reason. Great food, great service and great prices for the city! The spring rolls need lots of cooling down time before you eat them though. Burned the heck out of my cheek and gums. Go there. You won't be disappointed!

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.
