I haven't been to Yank Sing in a while now but I remember their shanghai dumplings being much juicier and flavorful than other Dim Sum houses in SF. What do you mean by "watered down"?

Coi Palace is a great all around Chinese Restaurant - one of my favorite places. I didn't even know they had Dim Sum. Will have to check it out.

If you'd like to spend $50 on $23 worth of Dim Sum go to Yank Sing.

Ton Kiang is okay.

Let me guess, there's much better dim sum in NYC?

While I can sympathize with Lefty's hatred of San Francisco, Chinese food in New York is really atrocious in comparison.

I'm not a big fan of dim sum, but the one I like the best is Mayflower on Geary and 26th.

Everything in NYC is better than anything anywhere else.

Dim Sum is a funny thing. I've had it in SF, NYC, LA, Toronto, Paris, Beijing, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Shanghai. I've eaten at outrageously expensive restaurants and more or less street stalls. In fact, I ate at Ton Kiang this afternoon. While I enjoy dim sum quite a bit, the difference between great dim sum and okay dim sum is so minute that it makes the search for great dim sum a bit of a waste of time. (There may be a wider gulf between okay and fucking awful dim sum, but my experience is that fucking awful dim sum is actually pretty hard to find. Mind you, I've only had it at two places in SF so that may change.) By the way, it's not that everything is better in NYC; it's that anywhere is better than SF. Try and keep up. lefty

There's excellent food all over San Francisco and the Bay Area in general. Funny post though.

Not a big fan of Chinese food in SF. My favorite spots are in Fremont/San Mateo/Newark/Millbrae, but I'm a Sichuan cuisine guy and not a Dim Sum person. My dim sum oriented friends like Koi Palace.

If you want the whole chinatown experience with the dim sum go to New Asia restaurant. Its been there for at least 35+ years. Place is good for dim sum
