Went for dim sum this past weekend and I think it had to be one of the worst dim sum experiences ever. We ordered our food using the checklist, as opposed to ordering off of the carts, and it took 30 mins for the first dish to arrive, and it was the desert dish!!! other tables that sat next to us got served much faster. our food was cold, the waiters were idiots... took our tea kettle to add more water and forgot to bring it back... Made the rest of my saturday afternoon a bit bitter
Prepare to eat 'til you're ready to pop!.
I've been on a desperate search for good dim sum since China Village in Sausalito was closed down and my search has now ended. The dim sum at Hong Kong East Ocean is excellent. Well-prepared and delicious. We didn't encounter one greasy item in the 10 or so that we tried. The restaurant is pretty busy, but we received our food in a timely fashion. Although I didn't save room for it, I had the egg custard tarts for dessert and I'm still dreaming about them! Overall, my one and only complaint is that the food was too hot to eat faster!!
Great dim sum!.
Yes, it's true what you've heard ... the best dim sum in San Francisco is actually across the bay in Emeryville. Set in the Marina Harbor Village, this very authentic Chinese restaurant has the best Sunday dim sum in the Bay Area. Get there early, before noon if you can, or else you'll end up waiting. Thankfully, the restaurant is huge and can accommodate very large groups. Ask for a seat by the window and admire the amazing view of the bay and the Bay Bridge.
