My favorite dim sum place in San Francisco. It’s a dive located in the middle of Chinatown at the corner of Jackson and Pacific. It’s always busy and packed with the local Chinese community. Anytime I go to an ethnic restaurant, I want to be...More

I’m about to leave now. Sat down waited 30 minutes after ordering 3 simple things: shumai, dumplings, Phoenix claws ... the staff is awfully disorganized cleaning, taking orders, doing takeout. I doubt you’d want to take anyone here. I’ve been eating here 3-4 times but...More

Authentic experience. We entertained the locals we shared a table with by not being able to use chopsticks. The food was delicious, especially the shrimp dumplings.

If you seek for an authentic dim sum place in the heart of Chinatown, this is the place to go. It is a very small, somewhat chaotic, place that is in high demand, especially by Asian locals. This is always a good sign. There are...More

I went here for some dim sum with my family on the second day of our trip to San Francisco. I chose this place primarily because of the great reviews that it received on Yelp. First impression - it's definitely a hole in the wall....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,
