The best Dim Sum experience I have ever had in the city. It's off the path from the main shops but worth the detour. I highly recommend dining here.

Expected a lot more from this restaurant after reading the reviews, should have paid more attention to the lower ratings. Service was lax, the food below average and to DEMAND a tip added insult to injury. Just another tourist rip off

We stopped by for dim sum brunch today, and had spare ribs, chicken feet, and some other dishes. Disappointed with the food. The spare ribs were not tasty, and the chicken feet tasted weird. Will not come back.

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,
