    I loved the spinach dumplings. The XLB were nice but the skin did not hold. They come through the restaurant with carts constantly so you can spend a lot quite quickly! $100 for 2 people for lunch!

    Shrimp dumplings!!

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

    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.

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

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

    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

    No reservations needed if arriving after 2:30pm

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

    Dumplings, serving carts

    Outstanding dim sum. Superb soup dumplings.

    Gasp! Dim Sum that I actually really like! Mmmmm... Soup dumplings...

    I made reservations for 830, but what they neglected to tell me was that neither them or the other yank sing were even open for dinner service! Not happy at all!

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

    Achal Varma · August 7, 2014

    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!

    Dim sum platter.

    shrimp dumplings were good but Singapore chow fun was awful. never had some with no curry powder.

    Fantastic quick lunch. Some of the best dim sum in the city.

    Joe Hamlet · March 18, 2014

    Soup dumplings and pork steam buns!

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

    Dim Sum. The San Francisco treat. Love the potstickers most.

    Martin Sexton · March 2, 2014

    Best dim sum in SF

    Karen Stanecki · February 26, 2014
  • 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!

    Jackie Lee · February 25, 2014
  • Aditya S.

    One of the best Dim-Sums I have ever had & not just in Cali.

    Too expensive

    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 Tron · November 13, 2013
  • Robert S.

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

    Robert Sherman · 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 Lo · October 22, 2013
  • Darryl M.

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

    Darryl Manco · September 29, 2013

    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.

    Paul Lomax · September 1, 2013
  • Ignacy Z.

    Much too salty.

    Ignacy Zulawski · August 29, 2013
  • Devang G.

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

    Devang Gandhi · August 26, 2013
  • Vickie Z.

    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 Zhao · August 12, 2013
  • Jess F.

    They have several vegetarian dim sum options here!

    Jess Falkenthal · August 8, 2013
  • Bryan L.

    *don't* order the chow mein...

    Bryan Lim · June 5, 2013
  • Sean T.

    Decent food but it's overpriced. Of course, that's the case with lots of resturaunts in the FiDi.

    Sean The Awesome · May 16, 2013
  • Gervis C.

    This place is amazing. They stuff your face for you.

    Gervis Cash · May 5, 2013
  • Yunah R.

    Cannot justify the outrageous prices for dimsum. Won't eat here again. Goes against the whole point of dimsum which is supposed to be quick and cheap.

    Yunah Rha · February 26, 2013
  • Maco S.

    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.

    Maco Stewart · February 17, 2013
  • Maria E.

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

    Maria Essig · February 16, 2013
  • Sebastian C.

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

    Sebastian Cua · February 10, 2013
  • Ian K.

    Pick up a jar of the XO Sauce which they sell at the register. Delicious on an omelet.

    Ian Kennedy · January 9, 2013
  • Kidhack

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

    Kidhack · January 8, 2013
  • Aaron D.

    Try the rice-flour sesame balls for dessert.

    Aaron Draczynski · November 27, 2012
  • Brandee C.

    Everything is great, but don't be afraid to be picky. Before you know it you've racked up a $90 lunch in minutes.
