Hang Ah Tea Room

Is anyone familiar with this place? It's on Pagoda Place, an alley off Stockton. I went there in the early- to mid-seventies several times a year on mother-daughter outings to SF Chinatown that would begin with dim sum lunch at Hang Ah, then some time in the Chinatown playground, and a stroll among the shops, where I would spend my allowance on trinkets. My memory is of a small place with a tacky fake waterfall in the back, linoleum and formica decor, Wrigley's gum at the counter, and a count-the-plates sort of menu. Mainly Chinese clientele and friendly staff with enough English to deal with us. It was the first place I had dim sum, except for snacks from the street cart in downtown Berkeley. I have no idea of the quality of the food, as I was so young, but since it's still in the yellow pages, I'm wondering if anyone else has been there, long ago or more recently, and if so, what they have to say about it.
