    Delicious, but quite expensive for dim sum. Try the soup dumplings--those are my fav!

    Good service and food. But for $45. Not worth it

    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.

    I just read an assessment of the pushy dim sum waiters. Dim sum waiters are suppose to walk around table to table asking you if you want the food they have. That's how ALL dim sum restaurants are.

    Superbly tasty (and expensive!) dim sum, but hits the spot when you don't feel like walking to Chinatown on your lunch break.

    Too expensive

    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...

    Matt S. · October 16, 2012

    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.

    Just let them put it in front of you.... you'll like it!

    ordering to-go? Switch out chow mein for tasty special fried rice for no charge!

    Some of the best dim sum I've had outside of NYC.

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

    Tasty but absurdly expensive for what it is.

    Make sure you coordinate with whoever you are meeting. There is more than 1 expensive dim sum place called Yank Sing.

    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.

    The only dim sum restaurant I know of with a James Beard Award! Everything is delicious. Went there twice during my SF vacation!

    great food but the servers are pushy. be prepared to stop your conversation every 30 seconds in order to turn down more food.

    Best dim sum in SF

  • Jackie L.

    Service can be spotty in terms of getting the attention of the dim sum carts when out in the patio. Thankfully the wait staff are very attentive and can grab dishes for you upon request!

    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.

    Vol T. · November 13, 2013
  • Robert S.

    Very good. The soup dumplings and shrimp dumplings are awesome. Just be prepared for the bill.

    Robert S. · November 4, 2013
  • Monica L.

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

    Monica L. · October 22, 2013

    Food authentic flavor is diluted for the vanilla it serves. 2.5 stars. Sorry not authentic.

    Also, they do take reservations. If you call after hours, just leave a message.

    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.

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

    Much too salty.

    Cheap, quick and most important good food. I had veggie combo.

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

    Vickie Z. · August 12, 2013

    They have several vegetarian dim sum options here!
