We been here about every other months or so. Especially, when guest in town. Something you must order, extra crispy pan-fried noodles with lobster, Fried pumpkin with salted-egg yolk with Shrimp, Soup of the Day, fried tofu marinade soy sauce, and watermelon soup if you have a party of 8 to 10. It's all about communication and ask for help if you don't know what to order. If you happen to order a big fish, ask them to turn into two dishes.

We had six hours transit in SFO and a chance to have a lunch there. It takes just 10-12 minutes to be there from SFO by taxi. They serve Dim Sum and other chinese dishes by the cart and you can check and order those dishes at your table. Since there is no price tag for those dishes on the char, you should ask to know the price of those dim sum dishes. After the dish was put on the table, the waitress checked the sheet (which the price is shown on) on the table and you know the price for the dish.

I assume those are good chinese dim sum in this area. I saw many local chinese had a lunch there.

We visited there at lunch time (11:45AM). After we sat down, other guests would come to sit. I recommend to be there just before lunch time. So you can find a good table and easily catch those dim sum at your table.
We ate four dim sum dishes and one vegetable dish with soup. The total is approximately $32 for two, and it is good to have a lunch at chinese restaurant.
I would like to visit the restaurant again.

Our family in San Francisco celebrated a new baby with the traditional red egg and ginger party. We enjoyed a traditional dinner buffet what we call "dim sum". Chinese finger food. Noodles, Chinese dumplings. It was great! We enjoyed the food and celebration of new life together as family.

I was visiting San Francisco last weekend and my friend and her husband took me to Grand Palace for a wonderful dimsum brunch. My friend and I were living and working in Hong Kong many years ago when we met and spent many Sunday dimsum lunches. The food here served from traditional carts and the local crowd reminded us of our Hong Kong days. We enjoyed very much the usual siomai, hakaw, shrimp rice noodle and fried taro root dumpling. We also ordered the honey walnut prawns which was really delicious. For dessert we got the egg tarts which was as flaky as we remembered it. What a joy to have good dimsum meal with friends!

If you go during the earlier part of a busy shift, it is very good and fresh. If you go towards the end (last hour), food is not fresh and can be very dried out (and borderline gross). If they take out of rotation anything that starts looking old (and tastes worse since dim sum should never be served old), they would be 4 stars.
