I took your advice and tried this place on monday 5/19/08; And I have to say it was really good! We were greeted quickly, sat promptly, and given some great jasmine tea. We ordered steamed chicken dumpling with chive, Deep fried shrimp dumpling w/ mayo (which I can't be sure but I think they make it themselves and is sweet, a perfect pair for the fried shrimp), Steamed scallop dumpling, and a steamed shrimp dumpling. Every bit of it was amazing, I highly recommend this place. Plus they have live fish, shrimp, lobster, and goeducks that you can look at. I definately recommend this place!!!!
Best Dim Sum - 2007
Canton Seafood & Dim Sum Restaurant
San Francisco, CA 94107
Readers' Choice: Yank Sing
This huge, two-story restaurant that seats up to 700 people on weekends feels much like the no-frills places found in China. There are white tablecloths and small chandeliers, and the nice touch of fresh flowers on the tables plastic elsewhere in the room but d?cor is not Canton's strong suit. You go there for the excellent and very well-priced dim sum, served at lunch and brunch only. A variety of bao (buns) and other treats are only $2.35 per three-item plate. For $2.95, you can sample exquisite steamed shrimp dumplings with cilantro (four to a plate), and at Canton, the thin rice noodle covers bouncy whole shrimp, not the minced shrimp plumped out with filler found at many other places. The barbecue pork turnover ($3.50 for three) boasts tender flaky pastry. Highest ticket: $6.50 for a plate of crispy roast duck, honey-baked barbecue pork, steamed Empress Chicken, or jellyfish.
