We regularly eat dim sum in Los Angeles and have also eaten it in China and thought we would have a very favorable experience in China Town in San Francisco. The staff was pleasant but the food was sub par. I would definitely suggest anyone...More

As someone who makes it a point to check out dimsum restaurants in each city we visit, we decided to check out City View given the TripAdvisor reviews. We were very disappointed with our visit to City View. Typical dimsum items with no real winners....More

We stopped here for dim sum at around 1 pm. It was busy but a table was available and we were seated quickly. The trolley came around and we selected a number of dishes. My favourite were the glazed walnut prawns, pan fried chive dumplings...More

We arrived a bit late at 1:30 and they were starting to shut down the Dim Sum train (even though the web said it lasted until 3 pm). We ordered a table full of dishes and they were delivered a few at a time. Only...More

We love to catch Dim Sum in different cities. This was recommended by a friend to us. Very nice atmosphere and located off the hustle and bustle of the traffic and tourists. It’s very crowded and we can see why. Nice white table cloths, large...More

Have been here every time I come to San Francisco. Always good food, great dining room. Lots to choose from. If you have never had dim sum before, ask for a menu and you can see all the dishes and order from the menu instead....More

Great place for wonderful dim sum. Trolley after trolley loaded with scrumptious offerings. Very reasonable.

I found this restaurant to be...just ok but definitely enough to fill me up. I think I was just expecting something a bit different. None of the flavors seemed to “pop” with me. My son liked it. Maybe you will too.

Simple but genuine, mostly Chinese audience and only open for lunch. Situated in the middle of SFs Chinatown. A fantastic choice of dumplings, make your choice from trolleys. All freshly made and truly delicious. A must when in SF - had to go back twice...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

Many items of dim sum by nature do not contain wheat but rice flour e.g. shrimp dumpling, rice roll, pan-fried turnip cake, pearl rice wrapped in leave, spare ribs, etc. But lots are marinated or flavored with some amount... More

It is probably feasible, but not necessarily practical.. you are looking at small, narrow streets in bad repair (if cases are wheeled), so getting them there smoothly would be a challenge. Additionally, the dining location... More
