Great Dim Sum at Golden River on Geary

localgirl808 | Apr 7, 200602:28 PM     15

Took my hubby's mom and sister here around 10 a.m. Sunday. We were one of the first people there. But the place quickly filled up and was packed (mostly Chinese families) by the time we left. We had the usual: siu mai, har gow, shark fin dumpling, look fun, shrimp/chive dumplings, bean curd rolls, gai lan, etc. Everything was $2.20 and very tasty. Food was very hot and not greasy at all. Great value--food and prices much better than Ton Kiang next door. The only misses were the house special pan-fried noodles that were bland and soggy, and the shark fin dumplings, which had too many carrot chunks for my taste. For dessert, we had the egg custard, which my sister-in-law really liked, the mango pudding, my favorite, and the black sesame balls. All were very good. Check came out to $45 for four people, including tax, tip, and enough leftovers for another meal. Will definitely go back!
