    Pretty decent dim sum for the price given the location. Not crowded during weekday lunchtime.

    Hidden gem for dim sum lovers that don't want to wait in line. Greasy and filling pork ribs & duck. Try everything except the Shanghai dumplings.

    Great service and very reasonable (especially for SoMa). Try the fried pork chops... They'll melt in your mouth.

    Fast service, plenty of seating, and a fairly authentic dim sum experience make this a strong SOMA food option.

    Disappointed. Food was so-so. Soup was sad. Mustard greens were way overcooked. Both my sister and I got stomach problems afterwards. Cooking is definitely catered to the non-Asian palette.

    Pretty good dim sum at an affordable price. The pan-fried steamed gyoza with chives and prawns and the egg tarts are sooo good!

    the atmosphere will not convince you to want to return here over and over again but the dim sum is really good and the kung pao shrimp is tasty.

    I wouldn't suggest take out here; They are very skimp and cheap on the meat. You'll get a big take out box, but it's all steamed rice.

    After being put off a bit by the decor, it turned out the food was really good and not way over-priced

    Don't eat here! My coworker got take out and there was a dead cockcroach smushed on an egg roll in her lunch.

    Great dim sum without the drama. Parking getting tougher now that its become so popular. Easily half the price of Yank Sing. Must: xiu long bao, siu mie, sticky rice, fried taro dumpling.
