    Baked BBQ pork buns are off the hook at this quite and tame Yum Cha joint. Bookings are essential and the service is fantastic. Finish off with a custard tart and make sure you have room for it!

    Excellent choice of dumplings! Great selection of vegetarian dumplings. Open only till 3pm. Get the pan fried pork dumplings, shrimp steamed dumplings and stuffed mushroom. Don’t take all at once!

    Very good food, but bring a fat wallet. They bring Dim Sum on numerous carts-don't just take whatever the hand you on the first cart-there will be more. Be patient and get there early.

    Sit-down is expensive but very good, worth 🏀ing out. Their take-out is good value with super fast service, averaging < 3min from order to food (we timed it)

    Pretty expensive, but very delicious, nice service, interesting choices. Mushroom dumplings and daikon cake are great.

    If you want the Goldfish Dumpling, you need to go to Rincon Center. Also, you can order dimsum by the piece. So you can get a half order of Egg Custards.

    Good work lunch place right in downtown. Pricey but delicious! Too bad they don't have some of traditional/standard dim sum plates though.

    Has the best and most elegant Dim Sum available. Do not leave without trying the soup dumplings and the BBQ pork buns. Visit the to-go counter for takeaway service.

    Fresh, well made, and tailored to the western palate -- dim sum your (American) grandma will like. If you want cheap and greasy (or the california cuisine influence bothers you), go to Chinatown.

    Steamed Pork Buns are killer. Shanghai dumplings are the best in SF. As is the duck.Don't be afraid to say no to the pushy dim sum servers

    Make sure you realllly want the "specialty item." $29 dim sum sized piece of seabass, HA! Really good tho, THE BEST, not knocking it.

    So a bit on the pricey side but all you gotta do is choose what you want when the server comes by and try all sorts of goodness!

    Great dim sum but too pricy! Xiao long bao, fried shrimp roll, ha gao were all good.

    Amazing dim sum worth the price! Cha siu bao, har gow, Dan ta, and xiao long bao are all delicious

    Best Dim Sum I've ever had. But $120 for 3 people to really enjoy a lunch...doubt I'll be back. Just as good places for 1/4 of the price.

    Awesome array of vegetarian dumplings. Just order from the menu rather than the carts and they'll bring it straight to your table.

    You should try the Xiaolongbao! While tasty soup is flowing in your mouth, you will feel as a little miracle is happening to you!

    Best bbq pork buns ever. If possible, go with more than 2 people. Each dim sum item is a lot for 2.

    They are not the cheapest dim sum restaurant in town, but they may be the most delicious! Love this place! :-)

    Soup dumplings, pork bun, green beans with garlic. Too $ but very tasty. Good for a groups and if you want a proper sit down meal for dim sum.

    Good deem sum but very expensive. Be careful what you choose from the carts! That bass looks good but it'll set you back $36.

    Dim Sum galore! They're all great, but try their honey-glazed baked Salmon. So good!

    The dim sum here rocks. Don't bother with the menu, just pick off the cart as it rolls by. Be prepared for a heavy bill though

    The dim sum was tasty and fresh but extremely overpriced. Traditionally, dim sum is supposed to be a fun, cheap and accessible brunch experience.

    Very decent dim sum, trolley service. Not cheap though. Love their own-brand chilli sauce.

    This place is outrageously expensive. Aside from the soup dumplings, it is not the best dim sun either.

    Be wary of the first 'signature' dumplings. $13 off the bat. There are better less expensive dumplings. Check the menu and get what appeals to you. No rush. They'll be back around eight more times...

    Very slow when they're busy, and they aren't honest with their wait times to get a table. Good food when you get it.

    Tasted good & feels like a clean restaurant, but comes w/a hefty price tag. I'm used to paying $12 for 2 people & bill here was $50.

    Expensive compared to most other DS restos, especially if u r from NY, but the quality of ingredients was excellent. No greasy feeling or MSG headaches.
