This is my absolute favorite take out dim sum spot in San Francisco. You can get better shrimp dumplings and pork siu mai anywhere else. They just opened a few seats in the back post covid but this is a place where natives and tourists...line up to get large boxes of dim sum to bring to their friends and family. The prices are reasonable and you can't go wrong here. My favorites are: Shrimp Ha Gow Pork Siu Mai Steamed BBQ pork buns Sesame Yam Balls Custard tarts Reminds me of my childhood.More

This is a decent place for standard dim sum in fairly clean environment with a pleasant staff. Prices are very good for what you get. The shrimp hai gow has plump and fresh shrimp though the dumpling skin is one of the thicker and slightly...chewy texture. The pork siu mei has a generous serving of meat that is very coarsely minced with mushrooms and other ingredients. The taro fuzz balls are uniformly fried and dusted with crispy skin. By far the best dim sum is their bbq pork steamed bao. Very generous meat filling in a large, fluffy outer dough. Best ones we’ve had in a while. Parking on the street is not too difficult is you are patient. We’d come back, especially for the bbq pork bao.More

The dim sum was delicious. We tried a large variety among the three in our party. Their were several other dishes on the menu and a large selection in a refrigerated glass case. The sweet rice with chicken wrapped in a leaf was also tasty....It is a line up at the counter with your filled out order form. Questions are not appreciated as it slows down the process of a well oiled machine of order taking and filling. The dining area is crowded, not cleaned frequently enough and a much needed extra dining table is jam packed with pink cardboard boxes stacked to the ceiling. We enjoyed the dim sum, the chaos of diners with trays of food hawking tables possibly being vacated and cooks pushing large carts of food through the diners to get to the front.More

An authentic Chinese Dim Sum restaurant on Clement. Order at the counter, pay in cash, collect food and sit or take away. Very simple roadside restaurant kind of ambience but food is super yummy. We had lunch comprising of barbecue buns, chicken dim sum, pork...dim sum, chinese tea, custard, sesame balls etc. All great stuff. Great as an afternoon snack too. Will certainly visit again.More

We come here regularly for takeout. Has always been consistent. Nothing fancy or dressed up here. Solid comfort food. Little hole in the wall, not the tidiest of places, however common in SF to have places like this.

The dim sum was passable but nothing to rave about. Most of the stuff was cold, which was a bummer. They only take cash, and there's limited seating. The food was decent, but with so many great dim sum place in SF, I'd look elsewhere.

Fresh, delicious, great value. We always take home enough to freeze for several meals. A few tables inside but mainly takeout so don’t be daunted if there’s a line - it moves fast.

This is a great Dim Sum to go place. Some tables to dine in after purchase too. They are by far the best in the neighborhood.

Craving dim sum and found this place. Small selection later in the day but the potstickers are worth the trip.

wandered in here because we saw the line of people. It's a cafeteria style dim sum, with small, crowded tables in the back, but they also do take out. Highly recommend the shrimp and chive dumplings and the pork shu mai. The line moves very...fast.More

Love the shrimp har gow, chicken shu mai, yellow custard dan tat. Line moves very fast. Can get 3 or 4 items for $6-7 for full lunch. Feels a little like Seinfeld's "Soup Nazi" but the ladies are helpful and efficient as long as you...don't waste their time.More

When I'm in the Clement street neighborhood or headed to Land's End or the Sutro Bath/ Ocean Beach area, this is where I stop to get Dim Sum Take Out. The place is a Hole in the Wall, with no ambience and only four tables,...so don't eat in. Buy the food to go and take it to the beach or park. The line can be long, but you must follow the procedure to keep it moving fast. Grab a pink order sheet and pencil, and while you wait in line, circle what you want and then hand the list to the person behind the counter and they will fill it. If you don't know the names, compare the pictures with the names. One order of certain items like pork buns or shrimp dumplings is 3 items. so think ahead of how many you can eat. I think one order of 3 shrimp dumplings, or 3 meat dumplings is good for one person, but one order of 3 pork buns is good for 2 people. Depends on how hungry you are. The place is cash only. Don't expect service with a smile. The workers are too busy trying to get the orders filled and keep the line moving. The food is good and worth a stop.More

My go to Dim Sum place for take out. They do have a few small tables there if you want to sit down and eat, but there is no service. I usually call ahead and pick it up to go for get-together's. The quality is...really good and prices are really reasonable.More

This place is decent for a quick fix when you're looking for something cheap. I liked the egg tarts, har gao, and chicken siu mai. The porridge was too watery for me and the lady rushed me so I didn't get to order the black...bean spare ribs :(. However, customer service here is a trip. I asked one of the lady's for two sauce containers (one for chili the other for soy sauce) the lady made it a point to walk over to see how much food we had left over before she gave me the second container... I was kinda speechless. lol I'm not sure when I will be back, but I know it won't be for awhile.More
