Excellent and unassuming Chinese restaurants, where you can get a very wide choice od succulent dim sums at lunch time. Trolleys pass throughout the restaurant so that you can pick up your favorites. Also the other dishes looked very good, but we couldn't taste them coz we had too many dim sums ...

Get in early and there is no wait. Quick service as you expect but also helpful. Dim Sum fillings were excellent and mostly light wrappers. Vegetables were the highlight and we highly recommend the stuffed eggplant and asparagus. Roast duck looked amazing. You just need to slow it down a bit otherwise you end up with everything at once.

Sure, this place is good for dim sum. Sure the wait staff is imposing and "typical" forcing dishes on the unknowing. Can you get better dim sum, a definite resounding, "OF COURSE". The offerings here are your standards across the board. Go over to the new listing on Geary like flower lounge, 26th and geary, clement street...just go where you... More

We had dinner here on our last trip in 2012 but wanted to try lunch today. Very busy at 12:30 p.m. but we had a booth after a short wait. We were a little overwhelmed at first when the waitresses started bringing plates of cooked food in rapid succession. We had ordered off the menu for dinner last time. We... More

We ordered take out from this place which you could do all online or via telephone and we walked round the corner and picked up & was ready within 15mins. The restaurant was full when we arrived which I always think is a good sign. The food was fab, large take out portions and everything we ordered tasted very fresh... More

We have been eating dim sum at this restaurant for several decades now and have never had a meal here that we did not thoroughly enjoy. The two of us are extremely fond of dim sum and have dined at well known dim sum restaurants everywhere we have traveled, from New York to Sydney and Melbourne, to Vancouver and San... More

They have really good soup buns (soup in a bun) and pork buns, really good shrimp balls (those are the ones that are round and looks hairy), this place has some of the best dim sum.

What can I say other than to repeat the title of this post? Simply fantastic - best dim sum I've had, and very reasonably priced. If we were staying in San Francisco for longer, we'd be back.

It used to be fabulous. The last time we were there it was not as good. Found it was now closed on Weds. It was so good in our memories, we plan to try again.
