It's conveniently located near my hotel and has good size portions of noodles. Egg tarts and honey buns with char siew are recommended by the chef so I ordered those. Not bad!

This place is so close from being a restaurant in maninland China, reminds so much of Chinese eateries. Place is opposite from being fancy. menus are a bit mistreated, overall looks not appealing but what the heck... Food is nice and pirces OK.

Taste is almost everything when it comes to dining. Setting is spacious. Service can rival the food. The eat in menu prices need updating since they don't coincide with the check unlike the take out menu. Check the menu since 15% was automatic even though service worth 20%. Restrooms are typically atrocious. Even though in need of restaurant facelift, believe... More

Drove into San Francisco last Sunday and decided to go for Dim Sum. Stopped at a corner and asked three young guys for directions to the nearest place. They said they were proceeding to the Canton Seafood & Dim Sum so we asked them to get into the car. The restaurant seems to have been in this location for a... More

If you have never tried dim sum and you are visiting San Francisco, this restaurant is a MUST. Our son and daughter had been there before and wanted to take us there when we all visited the city. It is hard to resist what the ladies have on their carts, but with few exceptions where taste not quality was the... More

I always seek out this place when I come to San Francisco. Absolute authentic food in somewhat drab surroundings. Strangely, these surroundings just add to the character of the place. I will continue to return here.

Two couples had dim sum here for brunch Sunday. The food was tasty but doesn't compare to Chinatown in taste or price. The service was spotty. The restaurant has been here forever and really needs to be spruced up as it is somewhat run down and worn out.

Client was in town and wanted dim sum. Last time I took him to Yank Sing but this time I needed something closer to where we were meeting. Look, the food was fine but not fantastic. It was filling. Prices reasonable. I would go back again if I was in the neighborhood and all of a sudden had a dim... More

Arrived about 19.30 - restaurant was not busy and no queues for seating. I waited by 'Please wait to be seated' for about 10 minutes. I would have left earlier if I hadn't walked so far for this recommended restaurant. Two staff had noticed me, but did not acknowledge me. The owner looking male then gestured to me, and I... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
