Best dim sum in SF

  • h

Im sure this has been debated before on this bulletin board, but Im desperate for some info.

What is the best dim sum place in San Francisco? What makes it the best? I've been to (and loved) Ton Kiang and Yank Sing, is there any better?

  1. Just to head off some of the more vehement etiquette-minded posters on this board, I'd suggest you go back to the home page and do a search for Bay Area dim sum. This topic has been discussed exhaustively every few months, so you'll find tons of info without needing to start a new thread. Once you've sifted through past posts, try coming back and asking for specific info on places you'd like to try. I've noticed that requests that focus on a few places tend to get more (and better) reponses than the really general what's-good type of questions. Good luck! (That said, try Dol Ho in chinatown--no atmosphere, but good and very cheap.)

      Have been to Ton Kiang, Yank Sing & other "top" places.

      I would really recommend South Sea, mostly because they just opened and are on their way up, if you know what I mean. Everything is very fresh and they're putting in maximum effort.

      Below is the link to the chow event there.
