A very popular dim sum spot on Grand Avenue in SSF. Generally vey crowded especially on the weekends. A biotech Mecca during lunch periods during the week. Dim sum is served on carts and selection is varied. Beef tendon is a great dish with daikon!...More

They serve good dim sum. The wait for a table is not bad for small groups. Large groups will take a while. The food is good, but the service sucks. Can't flag down waiters and getting a glass of ice water is almost impossible.

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...More

Is Dim Sum served by carts and do they serve Dim Sum on a Sunday evening?

Both in Cart and Menu. NO Dim Sum in the evening. If you want Dim Sum all days, please visit Dim Sum King in Daly City.
