Hi there. I am pretty familiar with Oakland & SF dim sum - I usually go to Ton Kiang or a place in Daly City, or else Peony or East Ocean in the east bay ... I like Yank Sing too when I'm with parents or other Fancy People.
However, I need to find a decent place for a big group for Sunday AM dim sum - probably 12-18 people (we can take 2 big tables) specifically in Chinatown, as most people will be staying in union square hotels and won't have cars and I don't want to trek them all out to Ton Kiang.
I know the dim sum situation in this neighborhood is not ideal, but there must be one or two big dim sum palace type joints - like Jing Fong in NYC - around here, right? Any ideas?
