Walking through Chinatown we discovered some of the best Dim Sum we've found in either New York or San Francisco. A long line out the door looked intimidating but we had a table in 15 minutes, along with suits from the financial district, locals, families and tourists..7 plates of dim sun later our bill arrived and totaled $35 including tax. We ordered from the rolling carts shu ma, grilled shrimp, fresh duck chunks with skin, chicken skewers, ground turnip cakes, and a plate of shrimp and noodles. With great forbearance we passed up dozens of other options.. Kudos to the patient, smiling, amazing matiresse 'd who kept track of dozens of guests on a yellow legal pad.

Went here for dim sum on the recommendation of a local. Clean, bright, with loads of servers pushing carts of steaming dim sum. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are tons of choices. Our favorites were the turnip cakes, the shrimp dumplings and the egg custard tarts.

I eat here regularly because of the great quality food and as far as Chinese restaurants go, the servers are relatively friendly. It's white table cloth so this is a step up from most all the dim sum restaurants in the area.

I also like that they take reservations for large tables.
