This place was like eating in Hong Kong, the spices of each dish were so flavorful and delicious. We were all so surprised that none of us had every heard of the restaurant, it was all our first time and not our last!

Limited range for such a large restaurant. Probably only about 5 dumpling options and another 6-7 alternative savory items (from the carts). If you are in a big group it makes sense to order your dumpling or dim sum choices if you know exactly what...More

My sister recommended this place and she was spot on. The service (mei) was excellent and she gave great recommendations. My drink, the aloha margarita was amazing! Hot and sour soup is definitely spicy, so look out if you’re thinking it is subtle. Pork friend...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
