We loved the authentic and clean feel of the establishment. Food was delicious and staff attentive. If you didn't know what something was, they eagerly explained to you. If you want something that isn't on the cart, they will gladly prepare for you. Wide variety...More

Trying to get yourself on the list is a bit chaotic but seems to work. Although stressful.. Once you are seated let the party commence.. You really do not look back... We went to the Yank SIng a few days earlier. Not as pretty but...More

The best dim sum I’ve ever had was at Dim Sum #1 in Hong Kong! I can say with confidence this place was very close to my experience in Hong Kong! I recommend all dim sum lovers to visit this place! They have a menu...More

The dim sum here is fresh - almost, almost as good as the Michelin starred Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong. But you don't need a passport to come here. There are still carts roaming the restaurant, but it may be faster and more specific...More

Be prepared to wait as we waited an hour to be seated, however the food and service were wonderful! Fun eating in Chinatown for a dim sum experience.

The dimsum here is excellent. With a wide variety available you will not run out of choices and dishes to try. The Peking duck is fabulous. Come early (we were here at lunch) since the place gets packed and there are no reservations. A must...More

I have been looking forward to this for weeks. It didn't disappoint (for me). We were a group of four, two couples. We arrived about 11:15 on a Friday and the place was mostly empty (yet) so we were seated immediately. It quickly filled up...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
