    Known for dim sum. Staff is very Chinese, no carts so you will have to read the menu carefully. Some unique items here.

    Very popular, so be prepared for a 20 minute wait for a table. Staff was fast and efficient, and pretty much everything was delicious.

    Good dim sum. 20-minute wait at 2pm on a Sunday. Friends said this place is relatively undiscovered, well known only within the SF Cantonese community.
