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...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...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...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)...More

Contrary to some uninformed opinions, SF Chinatown is not known for exceptional Chinese food. Pretty much like the NYC Chinatown, the area is mostly populated with old guards. The newer generation of chefs work outside Chinatown due to higher discretionary income in those areas. It...More

Not the chicest of restaurants, but if you want an authentic dim sum experience, there's nothing more satisfying that going in the morning and selecting dumplings, duck, noodles, or other delicious bites to start the day.

We stopped on the recommendation of our Chinatown walking tour guide for a later lunch. The star here is the food. It was very busy and several tables from our walking tour were the only non-Asians, which, as usual, predicted good food. We came for...More

This is a HUGE dim sum palace with giant crystal chandeliers and decor from the 60's. Highly recommended by local Chinatown business owners, we gave it a shot and we're delighted at the prompt service and really great dim sum we chose. We had a...More

This sort of place makes me amazed at the gullibility of people to patronize a restaurant where the food is so frighteningly bad. I don't get it. Scary restrooms as well, so that one is afraid to eat enough to require their use. I have...More

Average dim sum with quite a few dim sum dishes. Disappointed with the roast pork as it was cold and tastless.

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,
