New Asia Restaurant
San Francisco, CA 94133-4440
SF Weekly's Description
New Asia looks like a cross between a 1940s dining hall and a party palace, with chandeliers, a cracked terrazzo floor, and a dais backed in quilted gold satin for the guests of honor. The color palette is taken from Jeff Koons' Michael Jackson statue. At night, New Asia is a popular spot for wedding receptions. During dim sum hours, the two-story room vibrates with noise. âIt's not hard to fill the table up with dumplings and snacks from the carts within a matter of minutes, though the quality of most is middling.
Tips from foursquare
This place has solid, traditional Chinese food that won’t break your bank. Try the dim sum.
People-watching: old men reading newspapers, little old ladies body-checking each other to pay the bill before their dining companions can, tourists staring forlornly at unidentified food rolling by
Always popular amongst the Chinatown locals, & as more of a "yom-cha" (drink tea) spot rather than dim sum specialty restaurant. Observe the daily social scene over basic dim sum dishes!
Food is okay but service is terrible.
Check out how they store the wine next to the WD-40 and Raid.
