We asked some locals in a bar where to go for Dim Sum and this was where they suggested and it didn’t disappoint! Would definitely go again!

I’ve eaten here over the years and I’d say skip this one. The Dim Sum is average and you can find better. The service is terrible. They offer a great selection but aren’t helpful so know what you want before you go.

Let me start off saying that DimSum is only served at lunch—not for dinner. This restaurant was filled with locals so we assumed that it would be good—big assumption on our part. We should have left when the waiter wouldn’t help us when we asked...him what he recommends, but we stayed against our better judgment. It also happened to be karaoke night (Thursday night) which was a unique experience to say the least. Our ears are still ringing! The food was nothing special, the upstair bathrooms were filthy and the service was rude! We will not be returning or recommending!More

Traditional Dim Sum carts with a great selection. Full of locals so that was the first clue. Will return for an evening meal. Saturday/Sunday opens at 10am and you may want to be early. Friendly too!

Our Uber driver recommended New Asia and it did not disappoint. I had dim sum and hubby had chicken and mushrooms. Everything was delicious and very affordable. We were the only non-Asians there but we felt very welcome. They gave us our own table. But...this restaurant seats strangers at the same table...I think that would have been fun.More

Our favorite Dimsum restaurant in China town every time we visit San Francisco. They have regular dishes which are all good, from spring rolls, noodles to duck, etc., you name it, they have it all. English speaking person are there. Lunch time is very crowded,...better to go a little earlier. They do’t serve dimsum for dinner.More

The items we chose were very good, hot, and fresh even though we got there for the last 30 minutes for dim sum on a Saturday! The white rice cake though was the flattest I've ever seen but still tasted good. Our soy sauce seemed...overly salty. Otherwise, the duck, shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, pot stickers, noodles, steamed pork buns were all very tasty. I'm not sure what the prices were but our final bill was higher than other dim sum places in Portland. The interior is worn but there were lots of Chinese customers which is a good sign for me.More

We went to this restaurant as part of our tour. The restaurant is huge but very old and had electrical wires hanging from the ceiling. The cleanliness of the restaurant was a concern from the beginning. We were a large group and they brought out...one item at a time. Some food was good and some was not. The bathrooms were an absolute disgrace for a restaurant. The floors leading to the bathroom were greasy and a fall hazard. The bathroom floor itself was wet all over. The toilets and sinks were filthy. I would not eat here again based off that bathroom and the fact that people who are cooking your food use the same disgusting bathroom.More

Attended a huge banquet here recently. Cooking for that many tables (entire restaurant) usually diminishes the quality but the food they served was definitely above average to very good. However, I wanted to use the restroom - for reasons unrelated to the food eaten, and...it was absolutely disgusting. The restaurant was first built i believe in the 1970's, and it has the very low toilets - at least in one stall. But my main complaint was that the bathroom floor was all wet, of what I do not know and did not stick around long enough to find out. OMG! Food was good enough but the restroom situation makes it a poor choice.More

I was surprised that many of the reviews of New Aisa were average -- we thought the food was very good. Was it on par with Hong Kong -- a little below. But compared to great dim sum places I've eaten at (Din Tai Fung)...in the US --- pretty darn good! We really enjoyed the cha shu bow and pulled mandarin duck. Also nejoyed the shumai. Highly recommend!More
