Over the last 15 years we continue to come back just to this little hole in the wall restaurant when we visit San Francisco. I think it has changed hands a few times and each time it loses some of its charm. The wait staff...More

Went specifically for the dim sum. And we were not disappointed. Being the oldest dim sum restaurant in town, they stood up to their pedigree. Will go here again.

Food was fine but they were sold out of half the good dishes. Took us 20 min to get seated even though we were at the front of the line and there were several vacant tables. Took us about 1.5 hours to get the 7...More

Eventually there's a tipping point where no matter how good the food is, it's just not enough to make up for outrageously bad service, e.g. we asked for water refills from multiple servers and still no refills 20 minutes later, waiting an hour for something...More

We were lost with the menu and the waitress ordered for us, preparing a combination where we could try all sort of different things, all of them awesome! Would totally recommend it to anyone

We went here for a light dinner and ordered different types of dishes: dim sum, spring rolls, prawns with rice and vegetables. They didn’t bring out the food simultaneously. My brothers dish was served about 10 mins before the rest of the food and then...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,
