Great, authentic Chinese bakery offering a variety of buns and dumplings at an extremely reasonable price. That said, the staff was quite rude to non-Chinese speakers which detracted from the experience.

We dropped by to pick up some quick Dim Sum while cruising Chinatown. A lot of different Dim Sum options. The menu is scribbled on the wall, and we just went with some more or less well-considered choices, but they were all good.

I'm not sure a place can be hidden with a line of people out the door, but this unassuming chinatown shop delivers great buns and dumplings. Highly recommend the pork buns, bean buns, and shrimp dumplings.

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.
