My boyfriend and I have been going to this Chinese restaurant very frequently and we couldn't agree more that the dim sum is delicious especially the shui mia. However the costomer service is terrible. The male owner/sever never once greeted us with a "Hi' or a smile. Even when we sincerily tried to say hi he would just unwillingly ignored our presence. When our water glass runs empty we have to inconveniently ask for it. Because of the unfriendly enviroment and bad customer service we decided not to go the restaurant ever again.
Nasty food; not worth going.. This is the worst dim sum place. The shrimp dumpling tasted like plastics. The pork bun was soggy. The turnip cake had a smell of trash. Moreover, a male waiter was simply rude and impatient. I will not go back. It does not worth a try.
love dim sum hate service. serious... they do have good dim sum and food. The lady is nice. But that waiter? If they didn't have good food, I wouldn't go back just for him. Sad. They could update their decor too.
GREAT DIM SUM. Our family of 8 went to Cafe Anh Hong. I'm so glad, we didn't listen to all the negative things posted. There was no pinky waiter, no wait for our dim sum, the service was great, the dim sum delicious, and even our food that we did order was on the table within minutes. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Dim sum is a breakfast/brunch meal. To get fresh dim sum, you have to be in the restaurant during mid-morning, or early lunch hours. I would highly recommend this place to my family and friends.
excellent food!. the ambiance & location aren't the greatest but the food is wonderful. while the hosting skills are alien to western sensibilities, they make perfect sense to the chinese. i originally visited this restaurant on the recommentaion of my tai chi/kung fu master [a tawainese chef] and have never been dissapointed. i've been able to get laughter out of the male waiter and he is most gracious in his own fashion [even though he looks miserable most of the time - i think he is just really shy and strange in his own way]. the woman server is most accommodating and jovial. don't expect great english to be spoken. look beyond the ambiance, relax, and enjoy the food and tea. i highly recommend the chow yang rice and sinagpore chow mie fun. order off the menu or off the chinese menu [with english translations]. the dim sum is most excellent. note for all chinese restaurants: if you want your tea refilled, just open the top.
Come to this restaurant for the food, not the service. Don't expect to receive the service you would get from most restaurants. The owners know how to cook Chinese food, but don't have very good customer relations skills. Nevertheless, it's worth coming for the food. Beware of the "Americanized" portion of the menu. These include your combo meals and lunch specials. They aren't very good. Rather, look at the Dim Sum menu or the Chinese menu. The Chinese menu has the English names written off to the sides. These are generally your best choices. Recommended Dim Sum: Fried dumplings with shrimp and leeks, har gow, sui mai.
Dim Sum. Tasty dim sum but lousy service. The usual waiter must be one of the owner/partners because, with his poor attitude and service, he would have been fired long ago. Ambiance is very plain and not representative of a typical oriental restaurant decor. If the waiter is an example of the sanitary conditions in the kitchen, I would hesitate recommending patronage . If you would like a good example of dim sum. with friendly service, in an attractive establishment, try the Hong Kong west of the Gateway.
great dim sum Sunday. Very good Dim Sum. Most of the patrons this sunday were chinese-speaking, which I found very reassuring.
It doesn't suck. I went there based on reviews from Citysearch, and I have to admit, most seem to be true. The owner/waiter/chef has a long pinky finger nail (painted pink) and he's not very friendly. I getting take out, so it didn't bother me anyway. Nevertheless, the food's actually pretty good. I had the garlic chicken-and surprise--it tasted like garlic chicken. I've been to Sampan and I was wondering if they just boiled their chicken or nuked it. This though was pretty good Chinese and if I sound surprised, I am. I haven't been able to find a good Chinese place in a long time. I'm going back.
best chinese. This is no chinese american resturant. It's the real thing. As a chinese person who spends most of the year in San Francisco sampling their chinatown cuisine, i can ssure you that this is the closest you'll get. Though the service isn't great, if you want the real thing, come here. One thing ot look for in a chinese restaurant: CHINESE PEOPLE!!!
