"Dumb" dim sum question/Ton Kieng

Karen | Aug 16, 2000 01:24 PM


I know the other chowhounds will think this is a silly question, but what exactly is dim sum? How does a dim sum lunch work?

What are some eating/participating/paying guidelines? What are some good choices? Also, is tipping 15-20% customary, etc?

I have heard great things about Ton Kieng (sp?), but what do you all think? What are some good dim sum spots in SF?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
