We had a great experience, dim sum is several small dishes, prices ranging from $4 - $7.95, that waitresses pass along the restaurant and you take whatever you want. This means it is fast, you barely sit and food is knocking on your table. Everything we tried was delicious, specially the scallop shrimp dumplings and the shrimp ball. A must... More

I'm a Bay Area local and dine often at Ton Kiang and also order take away frequently. I was quite surprised on November 14th when the delivery person asked that I tip him in cash as he handed me my credit card receipt. I said I preferred to tip on the credit card bill and he insisted cash only. That... More

Bay Area locals like us know you don't need to eat in Chinatown to get great dim sum. We've been going to Ton Kiang for several years now. They serve affordable dim sum all day, and Hakka-inspired main dishes in evenings. It's an unfussy place, and quite authentic. My wife lived in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and is quite particular... More

Excellent and unassuming Chinese restaurants, where you can get a very wide choice od succulent dim sums at lunch time. Trolleys pass throughout the restaurant so that you can pick up your favorites. Also the other dishes looked very good, but we couldn't taste them coz we had too many dim sums ...

Get in early and there is no wait. Quick service as you expect but also helpful. Dim Sum fillings were excellent and mostly light wrappers. Vegetables were the highlight and we highly recommend the stuffed eggplant and asparagus. Roast duck looked amazing. You just need to slow it down a bit otherwise you end up with everything at once. In... More

Sure, this place is good for dim sum. Sure the wait staff is imposing and "typical" forcing dishes on the unknowing. Can you get better dim sum, a definite resounding, "OF COURSE". The offerings here are your standards across the board. Go over to the new listing on Geary like flower lounge, 26th and geary, clement street...just go where you... More

We had dinner here on our last trip in 2012 but wanted to try lunch today. Very busy at 12:30 p.m. but we had a booth after a short wait. We were a little overwhelmed at first when the waitresses started bringing plates of cooked food in rapid succession. We had ordered off the menu for dinner last time. We... More

We ordered take out from this place which you could do all online or via telephone and we walked round the corner and picked up & was ready within 15mins. The restaurant was full when we arrived which I always think is a good sign. The food was fab, large take out portions and everything we ordered tasted very fresh... More

We have been eating dim sum at this restaurant for several decades now and have never had a meal here that we did not thoroughly enjoy. The two of us are extremely fond of dim sum and have dined at well known dim sum restaurants everywhere we have traveled, from New York to Sydney and Melbourne, to Vancouver and San... More
