    Good variety of dim sum but the latest creative menus are kind of disappointing..

    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.

    Best dim sum in the Northern California! They have all the traditional Hong Kong or Cantonese dim sum dishes. in addition, the chef over the years have created innovative dishes. Ck dim sum menu w pic

    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.

    It doesn't get more legit than this. The best dim sum I've ever eaten.

    John Doherty · December 21, 2014

    Fried taro dumpling is the must! Remember to get the small egg tart or u will regret it!

    Another popular venue popular for holding wedding ceremonies

    Lunch time. Deep fried taro dumplings is awesome.

    Tiffany Liu · September 14, 2014

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

    Andrew Wilson · September 11, 2014
  • Don O.

    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.)

    Adrian Hoffman, chef of Lark Creek Restaurant Group, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Crab xiao long bao. Read more

    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!

    Tom McGhan · August 13, 2014
  • Eddy C.

    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

    Really, is any dim sum worth an hour+ wait? I wonder?

    Seafood stars here, including sweet prawns simply steamed and served with a soy dipping sauce spiked with chiles. Read more

    Get here early on the weekends. Stay for a long time.

    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!

    Brian · February 2, 2014
  • Judy N.

    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.

    Judy Ngai · February 2, 2014
  • Angel L.

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

    Very good dim sum but there are Places in the outer sunset w 5min wait that are just as good.

    Try the duck burrito.

    It might be great for dim sum but dinner was not impressive at all.

    Awesome Dim Sum. I was lucky to get an immediate seat at 1pm during the week. Totally packed. Food is excellent.

    Odd Pryc · October 21, 2013
  • Norbert H.

    Perhaps the best Bay Area dimsum. If you must visit on a weekend, do yourself a huge favor and line up 15 min before they open. Otherwise, you could be looking at a 1+hr wait.

    Norbert Hu · August 22, 2013
  • Aaron D.

    Expect long waits. Dim sum is mediocre at best and its expensive. Not the best dim sum place I've been to so far.

    Aaron Dong · August 18, 2013
  • Aaron L.

    Dirty bathroom...someone peed on the floor

    Aaron Lim · August 16, 2013
  • Kevin Y.

    Get there before opening for the first wave. Chinese doughnuts are a surprising must try.

    Kevin Yien · August 10, 2013
  • Catherine C.

    Dim sum heaven!!! What a surprise!

    Catherine Cauilan · July 27, 2013

  • ashley t.

    Get there before 11 or be prepared for a 1-2 hour wait. Lunch favs - #223, #201, #307, and #510 for dessert.

    ashley tevatia · July 18, 2013
  • Matteo F.

    On weekends you'd better come early! Huge line.

  • Jason N.

    There are not a lot options for these type of restaurants in the city.

    Jason Ng · May 8, 2013
  • Dailoc N.

    The place is always packed but well worth the wait! Don't forget to try the dragon beard candy they make there too!

    Dailoc Nguyen · April 21, 2013

    The ideal dinner for two: half roast duck, honey walnut prawns, shanghai steamed dumplings, Chinese broccoli, and egg puff pastries for dessert. Easy. Delicious.

    Ryan Walton · March 16, 2013
  • Shirley L.

    Get the duck with buns and suckling pig when here for dinner. Try to snag an invite to one of your Chinese friends' banquets ;)
