I put 22 dollars down for the $18 dollar bill and then after the server picked it up they returned the bill with 2$ and said it was not enough money. They and/or the server is a crook! Not wanting to get in a fight I stupidly put down another twenty so I actually tipped the crooks. As the food... More

Dim Sum was hardly noteworthy or unusual. Most dishes were lacking some flavor or seemed suspiciously frozen then fast steamed. Prices were high but the place was cleaner than slot of others in the area. Go here if you must but don't expect more than average dining.

We had reservations so no problem getting table. It was early, so service was slow to start. Once the food carts started there was still a little wait, but ok. The dim sum was tasty and overall good. We'll above average, not the best in the world, but certainly far above the worse. I had a stomach ache after, so... More

When you have a 99 year old Chinese man seated at the table next to you and a 90 year old Chinese woman seated at the table behind you, you know you're in the right place for some great Chinese food! (the 99 year old man's daughter told us that and it was true!) The place was packed with locals... More

We tried a variety of items. They were all very good. I thought the service was very attentive. This was my first experience at an authentic Chinese dim sum style restaurant and I would definitely return to this restaurant.

We had an eight course feast of Chinese food hosted by a former classmate. The food never seemed to stop coming with incredible variety.

We ate here at a catered event for a large number of people. I have very mixed feelings about the establishment. We had a fixed menu and several of the dishes were very good. They served chicken that was not cooked all the way through. We had crab but nothing to crack it with. The service was not really attentive.... More

We had the most wonderful experience visiting this excellent Seafood Restaurant on a recent trip we had to San Francisco. Tong Palace is a favorite of my good friend and decades long resident of San Francisco. He said if we wanted to eat really good Chinese food, we need to bypass Chinatown (where the tourists eat) and go to Clement... More

It is Sunday and I felt like Chinese Dim Sum. Being near Clement Street I headed that way and miraculously nailed a parking space right in front of all these Chinese restaurants near Clement and 10th. Parking is a big issue around the popular Clement Street. Clement is often referred to as SF's second Chinatown. I used TA and chose... More
