The wait and seating can be trying during lunch, but good news they serve dim sum all day! Good dim sum selection and service. Not your old style carts rolling by the aisles. Picture menu gives you all you need to know. Food was fresh and none of the over used oily taste common to fried foods. Typical of Chinese... More

It was a family tradition for many years to go to Yank Sing in San Francisco for dim sum on Christmas Day as a way of recovering from a Christmas Eve feast. We always enjoyed going there. We had the good fortune to find several wonderful dim sum restaurants in Honolulu during multiple visits to Oahu. We have also gone... More

Jasmine tea arrived at our table along with the picture-filled "check off your order" paper menu. Dishes were all brought together, steaming hot and fresh. The dumplings were all very plump, and the crispy crusted soft tofu came with a delicious sauce. My only disappointment was the average Bao. This restaurant is in the same shopping center as the 99... More

The dim sum was only average compared to other places. Yes, the food was fresh, but nothing really special or different.

Whenever I crave for dimsum, this is the place to go! I'm always full and satisfied after a visit there. They have a good selection. I like that the food tastes fresh and the prices are very reasonable. If you go on the weekend for brunch, I recommend being there before it opens. The queue can be long. My 5-star... More

For the money, you can't find a better Dim Sum restaurant in the East Bay, West of the Caldicott Tunnel than Asian Pearl. I've tried several Dim Sum restaurants in and around the Pacific Mall, from Richmond to Emeryville. None of them measure up. Three of us went on a Saturday afternoon after the seeing the MET HD opera at... More

Our first visit and looking for something different. Arrived early Sunday and asked for a quiet table for two. Ha! No sooner said than large family groups arrived all talking at once. Once food served noise decreased and we were able to talk quietly. Ordered Fried oysters Masaga on Hot Pot Lid and boring fried rice. The Oysters were perfect,... More

My companion and I ordered S[icy Beef and Broccoli and a pork broth bowl. The... More

This restaurant offers very authentic Cantonese food and dim sum. It is crowded and loud as it should be when lots of Chinese people want to eat at the same place. The menu is easy to use with pictorial aid despite the extensive offer. The seasoning and flavoring was just right with some unique choices as well as typical popular... More
