For authentic Chinese dim sum, this is your place.
But beware... authentic means AUTHENTIC. If you're squeamish you may want to skip the chicken feet, etc. It's best if you go with someone who knows the place and can recommend certain dishes.
Even if this isn't your kind of food, you should at least try it once.
REAL Dim Sum.
It is a real Dim Sum restaurant reminiscent of others in the Chinatowns of San Francisco and Montreal - though the restaurant is smaller and the menu reflects it (no Tofu-Fa). There are Large Family sized tables, the fried/steamed/dumpling carts, and yes, the chicken feet and tripe are right there. It's got all the important stuff, Sticky Rice in Banana Leaf, Char Siu, Roast Duck, Sesame Balls! Yum!
What strikes me funny is that they have two different menus - one "regular" (Americanized) menu and a "REAL" chinese menu with all the good stuff. The place is designed for families, but we regularly go as a couple.
It is most crowded on weekends. They open at 11AM. Go early for quickest seating, as the rush shows up at about noon.
They have great Duck Feet!.
We consider ourselves fairly knowledgable about Dim Sum. We previously lived in the San Francisco Bay area and Ive had Dim Sum in many places, including Hong Kong. The Dim Sum Restaurant is very good - especially seeing that they do not appear to have any competition.
The decor is spartan - but we went for the food not the ambience. The selection was very broad and service and prices were very good. A good measure of the quality is that ratio of Asian-to-Caucasian patrons was about 10-to-1. My only complaint is that some dishes were too bland and could have used more spices. Considering that we had to drive 2-1/2 hours to get there I would consider the trip worthwhile!
I tried this place a while back. I thought I would try it again hoping that there would be some improvement in food quality. However, it may have been worse than last time. Last time it was not really good either.
Dim Sim here is terrible. It is the worst Dim Sum restaurant I have ever eaten. Most of it is not tasty and food is also very heavy. Dim Sum is suppose to be light and not heavy in the stomach. It is a snack food.
