    161. Vegetarian Tofu Roulette - made from yuba (tofu skins, kinda chewy) and stuffed with mushrooms. Served cold. I liked it but probably not everyone's cup of tea.

    204. Wild Mushroom & Black Truffle Buns - steam buns that look like mushrooms (so cute! 😍) and stuffed with mushrooms. 👍
  • katherine k. r.
    307. Vegetarian Rice Roll - fresh rice noodles stuffed with mushrooms in soy sauce broth. 👍
  • katherine k. r.
    Plenty of vegetarian options. We enjoyed 204. Wild Mushroom Buns, 161. Vegetarian Tofu Roulette (made from yuba), 157. Soy Marinated Tofu Cube, 407. Green Onion Pancake, and 307. Vegetarian Rice Roll.

    Awesome dim sum, when it's good. When it's not good, it's just average. Line is a bitch

    Delicious dim sum, the best soft tofu that I've ever had! Come early or be prepared for a wait-they have a nifty number system so you can pick up a number and get a call when you're next in line.

    The most packed Dim Sum place that I have been to. Which means it's really good. Try their abalone egg tart its a must.

    Bummed that dim sum is only at lunch but what should I expect? Fresh seafood is where this place excels in the dinner menu.

    The horrendous wait is somehow completely worth it. Get the dragon's beard desserts by the entrance while you wait.

    Pick up a fast pass and check out the other rides in the meantime. (Just kidding. You will be waiting at least 45 minutes for food.)

    Yes, Koi is most known for their Dim Sum, and it's excellent. But don't sleep on their dinner menu! Salt&pepper crab, smoked sea bass, and handmade dragon's beard candies in front shouldn't be missed!

    The dim sum is good but the waits are horrific, especially when the "VIP" customers show up and cut the line. Your best bet is to go with a smallish group (i.e. 4-6 people) and show up early.

    This Daly City spot in the Serramonte strip mall is legit. It’s loud, overwhelming, and totally worth it. Dim sum is lunch only, but served every day. Read more

    It’s always a good sign when generations of Chinese families spill out of mini vans to stand in line at a dim sum place. It happens every weekend at Koi Palace Read more

    Highly recommend the whole Dungeness crab dumplings and legs. The rice noodle with fried fish is a real stand out! Don't forget soup dumplings with meat and crab roe. Delicious!

    If you go there for dim sum, they have a fish prepared two ways, in porridge and wrapped in white rice noodles. Super good but u need 4 or more ppl to get a decent taste of diff dim sum.

    They're very crowded so it's better to go early. Their food is very delicious.
