Came into this restaurant for Dim Sum brunch. We looked inside and saw it filled with locals and thought we give it a try. The service is good. Food is average tasting.

The food could not have been any fresher. We had hot/sour soup and wonton soup, which are done differently than in Chinatown in my state. Thoroughly enjoyed both soups. Another good choice was the barbecue pork with potato puffs, as well as the dumplings.

Proper dim sum. You write your order on a paper menu (includes English names) but can also pick up extras from trolleys. The steamed dumplings were great. Shame they had run out of BBQ pork buns, but I guess that just shows they are popular....More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful 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,
