This is where the locals like to eat dim sum in Chinatown. Has all the usual dishes pushed around on carts. Charge $1.25 per person for jasmine tea or water

We just love this place. We have been going for years and it is always good. It is an adventure. Very few wait staff know any English, so you may not know what you have ordered or are eating, but it's lots of fun.

While wandering Chinatown with my mom, we were looking for a place to eat lunch. We stumbled upon New Asia and walked into unfamiliar territory. First of all, the place is huge, like a wedding banquet hall. We quickly discovered that we were the only 2 caucasion people in the restaurant. If a place is full of locals, its usually... More

Maybe it was the love in the air.. but, we had such an amazing experience that we've been trying to find the place ever since! We got there 'round 11ish AM, the 100 + seat place was packed AND we were the only 2 non-... More

Maybe my expectations were too high, this being San Fransisco Chinatown, but I found the dim sum here very mediocre. Many dishes were cold, or not very tasty. Only dish I Really liked were the roast pork buns, which were pretty good. For sure, skip the small Peking duck plates.

We were on a city tour and we stopped here for a dim sum lunch. It was very good. The place is very big. It is big for the locals and gets crowded around lunch time. The rice noodles were very good. If you're looking for a good dim sum lunch, this would be the place.
