"Dumb" dim sum question/Ton Kieng

Karen | Aug 16, 200001:24 PM

Help!

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?
