My family and I usually go to this restaurant at least four times a year. But due to Covid, we weren't able to go to the restaurant until recently. When I first walked into the restaurant, no one greeted me and I had to keep asking if we could be seated. We finally got seated and had to flag someone to take our order after 10 minutes of waiting. We had to ask for the tea, but before the waiter used to bring it as soon as we were seated. They have a new system where you have to check off what you want in a pamphlet (no worker explained the new way to place your order). I miss the old way when the ladies walked around and you got to choose the dim sum right there and then. They should have left alone the traditional "original" way to order dim sum - that was part of the ambiance and experience. The food was fine, but the customer service was lacking. Probably won't go here again anytime soon.
TL;DR - dim sum breakfast and Monday-Thursday they offer dim sum for dinner! This restaurant is located a little away from major restaurant row in South city, it's next to a Jack-in-the-Box and across from The Night Market. The parking lot is pretty spacious. We got there around noon on a Monday and got seated pretty quickly - maybe 15 minutes. The restaurant is not that big, but the seats here are normally for 4 people or more, it's great for big groups. The food and service were the highlight of this spot. We ordered 6 things: - Shu mai - not my favorite, but definitely still good - Sticky Rice w/Chicken in Lotus Leaf - there were two of them, about medium size, it was really good but also kind of gelatinous - Vegetarian Dumpling - filled with mushrooms, carrots, etc. I loved the skin/wrapper! - Shrimp crepe - the shrimp had a bounciness to it, really awesome. - Dumpling/potstickers in nest - i don't know if this is the name of it, but it was sooooo good. It was a pork dumpling that was filled to the brim, with a crispy side. I recommend this. We ended up having the leftovers for dinner. - Tofu Skin Roll - I know this sounds funny, but it's fried and crispy with shrimp inside! I loved this one so much i would order it again in a heart beat. The service was great, they came and refilled our water and were really attentive. I liked this spot a lot. I'd come back here and invite friends.
Good food and good service. My family come here for Dim Sum every weekend. They serve Dim Sum at dinner too
Seated and was asked which tea we wanted. Before we even answered a pot of tea was given to us.2 out of the 5 dishes we wanted were not available so we had to choose other dishes. Not a huge deal but of the 5 dishes we did order, all were not seasoned properly or undercooked. The Westlake Beef Soup lacked salt. The Shiso Spareribs was too salty. Beef with Mushrooms was lacking seasoning. The Hand Shredded Chicken was not hand shredded and needed salt. Very obviously cut with a knife and they left bones in the dish. The Braised Lamb Clay Pot was still tough. It didn't arrive under after we almost finished the other dishes and we had to ask a waiter to check on it. What's funny is the waitress asked how the dish was and we told her the meat was still tough. Her reply was that it was cooked that morning and walked away.It wasn't just our food that wasn't good. The table next to us complained their crab dish needed more salt.Last thing was the rice. We had a table of 4 and the waitress asked if we wanted rice. Well, yea, of course we do. She's like, okay, 3 bowls of rice then. Huh? 3 bowls of rice for 4 people?
A great place to eat. The service and the food was great!! Lots of flavor!! I would visit again.
My family and I used to come here every week for dim sum before the pandemic. It used to be quite affordable for a group of 9 adults. Over the weekend, we finally got take-out from Hung To. This is our first time ever getting take-out from Hung To. We ordered the Fook Kin Fried Rice, Homestyle Stir-Fried Rice Noodle, baked bbq buns, pan noodles with black pepper beef, Singapore style rice noodles, and pork and chive dumplings (didn't come with a nest). The dish sizes were pretty big but really oily. They seem to have raised the prices as well.
Fantastic Chinese restaurant. Authentic and excellent service. The wonton soup is simple and good. It has a combination of wontons, white fish, chicken, and veggies. The lobster with noodles was pricey but good. Lots of parking and easy to find. Great menu selection and not overwhelming.
I love eating at this place. Waiters are very nice. They treat customers like they know you as a friend. Food is always Hot . Anything we order tastes great. The male Hostess is super nice. I always get a fork, atoumatic now since I'm not very good in chopsticks . They remember their guest like a family. Best of all Good Dimsum.
Food is good, but servers would benefit from more training. We missed our favorite dim sum restaurant during Covid precautions. The restaurant was full and I was a bit worried about Covid precautions. Our laminated menu was splashed with some dried soy sauce or gravy. They did change how you order things. No longer coming around with the dim sum cart. We checked what we wanted on a disposable menu. The server didn't ask us what type of tea we wanted like they used too. We also had mango pudding for dessert which we always enjoy!
My family and I enjoy coming here for affordable and tasty Dim Sum in the Bay Area. They're open for indoor dining. Before COVID they used to push traditional carts - now they just carry to you Favorites: Har Gow, Sui Mai, Taro Puffs, Steamed Crepe Rolls (shrimp, bbq pork), Lava Baos, Lotus Leaf Wrapped Sticky Rice, Fried Stuffed Eggplants, Chicken Feet, Tripe, etc! Unique Dimsum: if you like taro, try their Taro Cake (it's like turnip cake but they use generous portions of fresh taro) Service: GREAT! They're friendly, quick, and food comes out fast! Parking: Designated free private parking lot. First come, first serve. There's street parking too but you'd need to cross a wide street (dangerous)
Very authentic Cantonese dishes. Old school Chinese restaurant.
There's nothing like dim sum, and no place does it like Hung To. I still go every time I'm in town.
Pandemic ordering. Now opened for indoor dining but were taking it home. This is what we always order and never a disappointment. We had about 16 orders which cost us about $100. Some stuff we doubled the order because they were our favorites. It fed 5 overstuffed person with just a little leftovers. It really goes great with a pot of tea. Hot sauce and soy sauce provided in small containers.
I came here today for indoor dim sum. It was pretty busy with relatively few empty tables. The menu is a bit limited when you compare it to the bigger dim sum places that push carts around and have larger variety of dim sum to choose from. The har gow(shrimp dumplings) and the scallop version of it were decent. Some of the other items seemed to be at least on par with some of the other dim sum restaurants in the Bay Area. I've also gone here a few times for dinner. The food was decent.
Under new management and liking the little upgrade inside of the restaurant. Love the food here! and let me tell you about the service here, Maggie was amazing!!! Very accommodating and very friendly and made sure everyone in my family was taken care of with our food and drinks. Will be going back for more good food and great service!
