I hate to give negative comments but this was truly the worst experience I have ever had in a dim sum restaurant with regard to service and price manipulation that I have ever seen, and our party of seven all agree. With regard to the food, honestly it is standard, not over-the-top and definitely not worth what they charge. The... More

We been here about every other months or so. Especially, when guest in town. Something you must order, extra crispy pan-fried noodles with lobster, Fried pumpkin with salted-egg yolk with Shrimp, Soup of the Day, fried tofu marinade soy sauce, and watermelon soup if you have a party of 8 to 10. It's all about communication and ask for help... More

We had six hours transit in SFO and a chance to have a lunch there. It takes just 10-12 minutes to be there from SFO by taxi. They serve Dim Sum and other chinese dishes by the cart and you can check and order those dishes at your table. Since there is no price tag for those dishes on the... More

Our family in San Francisco celebrated a new baby with the traditional red egg and ginger party. We enjoyed a traditional dinner buffet what we call "dim sum". Chinese finger food. Noodles, Chinese dumplings. It was great! We enjoyed the food and celebration of new life together as family.

I was visiting San Francisco last weekend and my friend and her husband took me to Grand Palace for a wonderful dimsum brunch. My friend and I were living and working in Hong Kong many years ago when we met and spent many Sunday dimsum lunches. The food here served from traditional carts and the local crowd reminded us of...

If you go during the earlier part of a busy shift, it is very good and fresh. If you go towards the end (last hour), food is not fresh and can be very dried out (and borderline gross). If they take out of rotation anything that starts looking old (and tastes worse since dim sum should never be served old),... More

I really enjoy eating in this grand dining room. I believe that I have an old soul so sitting here in this fancy shmancy dining room makes me feel elegant and reminds me of former times. I love the hustle and bustle of this place. Literally, the food keeps coming and the ladies who don't speak a lick of English... More

We were visiting in SF and wanted good dim sum with easy parking. This fit the bill. Parking spots plentiful in the town and just a short drive down from where we were staying south of SF. Could both order food and get off the carts. Everything was fresh and authentic. We have eaten in NY and Hong Kong for... More

Haven't had Dim Sum since I was a child, this is a great place to test out the waters. Huge variety of items to try, fun experience. Only complaint is that the waitress spilled an entire glass of water on one of our guests.
