Call this one a Trip Advisor win...place doesn't look like much but the reviews were too good to pass up...glad we dropped in! Peking duck is served with the fluffy buns prepared traditionally and very tasty. The shrimp dumplings with snow pea shoots are the star of the show! Best in class!

The servers were slow to bring the dim sum and the variety of dim sum, though tasty, was limited. The shrimp dishes were the best. The noodle order was small in size.

Went here to taste some West Coast DimSum and we found this restaurant. The host was very attentive and pleasant. The dim sum menu lacked selections to my taste. Some of selections were unavailable. What we did order was good.

Went here for a group function. Location wise, it's a bit out of the way, being it's a couple of blocks from the main part of SF. That said, I felt walking there at night.

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside - in fact, I never would have thought to eat there if I were there on my own. The inside is not much better in terms of looks - it may have had its better days, but right now it just looks worn out.

The food is fine. Not too greasy, good flavor without it being too salty. I can't really complain. But as you can imagine, it's not "wow" either.

My visit was for dinner - maybe dim sum is better.

We're puzzled to order so we ordered a fried rice to our liking to share. We asked if we could have a fried rice with 'lap chong' or Chinese sausage, the waiter said yes. We also ordered a tofu and mushroom clear soup. Both the fried rice and soup were good. Service was fast. Reasonable price too.
