  • Don't bother with this place. Go to Golden River instead
  • One of my favorites. -Jonathan Waxman, Top Chef
  • 7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the dim sum is delicious. Yum!
  • Will remain one of my go to dim sum places in their shrimp & chive dumplings!! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • White people love this place! This is between The Wire and Studying Abroad of Stuff White People Like.
  • If you're ordering anything other than Dim Sum, go next door to the Golden River for reasonable prices on the same quality of entrees!!
  • Shrimp stuffed eggplant and egg custard #ftw
  • Best potstickers I have ever had. Lots of ginger in the pork - divinely subtle.
  • Head over to Ton Kiang, and when you are ready to eat, go next door to Golden River. Dim Sum at less than half the price! Just do an Asian headcount at both places and follow their lead..
  • Try the Dim Sum
  • Don't let the long line daunt you - the dim sum at this cheap hotspot is well worth the wait. Cha siu bau and har gow are chosen off carts, or order a full dinner entree (try the salt-baked chicken).
  • Go to Ton Kiang at 9:30AM, enjoy having lots of parking and the fresh dim sum.
  • Best dim sum in the city outside of Chinatown.
  • The core dim sum (xiao long bao and chia siu bao) will disappoint, but some less well known options pick up the slack. Instead, focus on ha yeung and don tah and you'll be very happy!
  • In a city known for its dim sum, this restaurant is one of the bestwith the long lines to prove it. Once you get inside, settle into a booth and point to what you want as the laden carts roll by.
  • Another Hakka specialty to get is the Braised Meat-stuffed tofu .
  • For dinner, get the Hakka specialties, liked the famed Ton Kiang Steamed Salt Baked half chicken , or the Steamed Bacon/ pork belly with dried mustard greens .
  • Definitely a dim sum place for white people. The bill shows it!
  • The dim sum is a little pricier than other nearby options but very good. The dumpling skins are thin and not at all gummy. Try the shrimp and pea tip dumplings and ask for a booth downstairs!
  • You have to eat here. Best dim sum!!
