There was a little wait with line out the door. The place is small but the line moves quickly. The shrimp & BBQ pork dim sum are killer. The price is right It is a little whole in the wall not fancy. I will definitely stop here again.

There was a line but well worth the wait getting to the whole-in-the-wall take-out only DIM SUM in Chinatown. You can order from the wall menu (It's in English) but I found it more fun to point and select to each of the fresh items behind the counter. Ha Gow (shrimp dumplings) and Siew Mai (Pork) were large sized. B-B-Q... More

We were staying at the Ritz just about a half mile away. On Saturday morning I walked over at about 7:30a to bring back Dim sum for the wife and kid. No line that early, which meant I could take my time ordering and getting help. Picked out about a kilo of dim sum, though some key items weren't available... More

We were hungry for dim sum since San Francisco has a great China Town ! We can't get it where we live so we get it every time we visit San Francisco. They have outstanding reviews so we decided to give it a try. The line outside was long. The restaurant owner next door came out and asked is to... More

If you're exploring Chinatown and you crave dim sum, you have to make a stop here. The dumplings and buns are fat and delicious. You may wait in line for twenty minutes, but you'll be amply rewarded. Business is always brisk so the food is super fresh.

The place had good Shrimp Ha-Gow and Pork Shu-mai steamed dumplings. There are 3 steamed dumplings per order. The baked and steamed BBQ Pork Buns were very good too. I took my friend and she loved it all. The woman waiting on us was rude and impatient and you better know what you want to order and how much you... More

We identified this place on Trip Advisor. We filtered the results...looking for a place that was both highly rated for good food and inexpensive. This place is not really a restaurant. It is a "bakery". We showed up in the middle of the afternoon on a week day. It took us 20 minutes of waiting outside in line, but it... More

Grabbed bao, noodles and siu mai a couple of times here while visiting. Mostly locals. The siu Mai are huge. The char siu bao are gigantic and flavorful. Both times waited less than 10 minutes in line. Once early, 0830. Other time later 10:30. Fast, cheap way to get your dim sum on if your on the go. Highly recommend!

We were traveling with kids and weren't sure about what the whole scene would be like in Chinatown much less an unknown restaurant but based on google reviews we decided to try it. Upon arrival we noticed a line, but this we didn't mind because it means we made a good choice! It's a tiny place (only single file line).... More

My motto: 'if there's a long line it must be good!' This is our second time to visit San Francisco as a family and we always go to China Town just to get to eat our favorite dimsum place. As always there's always a long line. Their dimsums are ridiculously good. Best dimsum that we've ever tasted. So when you're... 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, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
