Ton Kiang is next door. my wife and I parked then walked two blocks. Ton is now closed on Wednesdays. The Golden River is next door so we tried it. Food okay, service okay. Nothing special. Menu is in two parts- a picture menu and a paper order sheet. They are not tied together so finding the dishes you want... More

One of my neighberhood Chinese Cantonese spots to go to. The first time I went there was because they serve Dim Sum till 9pm and I had a craving. I was surprised that it was pretty good. It took awhile to get it, but worth it. Their vegetarian food is pretty good too. They always have pretty good specials.

We eat here quite a bit since this is one of my Aunt's favorite Chinese restaurants. We were a party of nine and my Aunt ordered her favorites: Scallop and egg white fried rice (this one has less cholesterol) Beef Chow Fun, Singapore style Noodles Dim Sum: Fried Sesame balls & one with red bean paste, Beef balls, Sui Mai...

My brother and I are staying nearby while visiting San Francisco, and we're walking down the street just trying to find a place to get some dinner. This restaurant wasn't too busy at 7pm, but more people showed up as we were there. Clean, crisp environment, prompt, courteous service. Food was excellent! I ordered the chicken & broccoli (the broccoli... More

This place is a regular stop when I am in SF. It is away from the touristy Chinese areas and has a homey feel. It is great for groups, service is friendly and efficient and the dim sum is varied and delicious. No long lines and lots of waiting. Very neighborhoody feel.

Not fancy, but oh so delicious and no line, Try the crab claws and the sauteed spinach. Everything I have ever had there is delicious. Ask for the menu with the pictures. They don't come around with the carts here.

Picked a restaurant at random while in SF. The food was amazing!! Must haves...crispy chicken, oxtail claypot, and lamb with green onions! They specialize in seafood but we were not in the mood for that tonight. But I hear from other patrons that they do it up great here! Love love love. Now roll me out the door.

Freshly cooked Cantonese morning Dim Sum. If you consume more than $60, ask for $1 lobster, which can be stir fried with fresh ginger and scallion, or made into lobster noodle. Family style large table with lazy Susan. Good for 5-10 group. If fewer people, you may need to share table with others.

We got take out twice from here while staying in the area. The staff were friendly and the prices were good. The food was plentiful in supply and quite tasty. We would eat from here again if in the area.

We've been here a couple of times, ordering from their dim sum menu. We didn't know quite what we were ordering, so it was kind of a crapshoot, with some items better than others. Service was good on our first visit. On the second, our server was the owner himself who spent his time chatting with friends and couldn't be... More
