Delighted to enjoy authentic dim sum in the heart of San Francisco during my visit from Hong Kong. The service was also excellent, just like I am used to at home.

Restaurant was pretty empty for dinner so didn’t have energy I was hoping for. Food was better than average bar food. Bartender was great.

The food was delicious, but a bit over-priced. Our server was a bit rough around the edges and brought us bill and asked us to pay while we were still talking and relaxing. There were plenty of other tables outside so I don’t think we were keeping anyone else from sitting.

Always great service. The dinner set menu for 2 is delicious. The buttery garlic crab is delicious and about 2.5 lbs. Highly recommend.
