While my friend and I were visiting SF, she wanted to try out the dim sum there to see if it's any better than NYC. Short answer: DEFINITELY not. Long answer: We were looking for a sit down place and Dol Ho had some really...More

DANG! This place is the real deal. I suggest you come in with a group of four or more so you can try more. It was just two of us and we filled up too fast. It was packed on our visit. We were the...More

If you seek for an authentic dim sum place in the heart of Chinatown, this is the place to go. It is a very small, somewhat chaotic, place that is in high demand, especially by Asian locals. This is always a good sign. There are...More

I went here for some dim sum with my family on the second day of our trip to San Francisco. I chose this place primarily because of the great reviews that it received on Yelp. First impression - it's definitely a hole in the wall....More

You've see the big dim sum restaurants with the endless carts of specialties, half of which are gelatinous question marks. This is completely different. it's a small place, packed as tightly with diners as is possible, but everyone including your fellow diners are warm and...More

This is a great find in Chinatown, food is delicious (comes around on one of those carts and you just take what you want) and the price is dirt cheap. It's just maybe not the most sanitary and up to code on being clean. Personally...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
