They bring out the food with the cart which is the traditional way and I like it so much! The food is good.

They weren't doing cart service anymore when we arrived. We were seated quickly and the food was quick. The BBQ pork dumplings were good. Sesame chicken was standard. We had two other chicken dishes which were ok. Nothing was terrible, just wasn't anything to write...More

We were advisef by S F natives that this restaurant was good for dim sum lunch. It is extremely popular and you cannot reserve a table. There is a wait of 20-30 mins. Once seated, it is really difficult to put together a lunch plate....More

Saw the reviews so decided to come try the dim sum. I'm Chinese and had dim sum everywhere in the US and in Hong Kong. The food was solidly good, not great. Was also quite expensive as it was about $100 total for 2 adults...More

Really good dim sum. Located just outside Chinatown. Nice vegetarian selection as well. Has never been and glad we went.

I chose this spot because I like dim sum that has cart service and many places don’t do the carts anymore. Two of us went at 12:30pm on a Sunday and I was worried we’d have a long wait but we were seated in 5...More

Service was fast and furious :) We love us some Dim Sum and weren't disappointed! Be ready to order or try new things as it comes at you in a hurry. Wait staff was pleasant and prompt.

Read about this rating and decided to make a trip to try. Dumpling skin is too thick, lack finesse of the Cantonese art of Dim Sum. Salty and lack texture. Won’t go again given the price vs quality.

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
