Why did we dine here? – All Season replaced Yet Wah in the San Francisco Diamond Heights Shopping Center complex. We’ve heard good things about it and finally got our chance to sample their Dim Sum. This restaurant also has a branch in Guangzhou, China that we visited in the past.

Insider Tip – Go early to avoid the crowds.

Cuisine – Chinese
Location – Diamond Heights, San Francisco
Opened – 2012

Service – All Season had pretty typical service for a busy lunch time crowd. You have to hail servers to get things done.
Verdict – All Season impressed us with their food. The Dim Sum is very good, a slight step down from number one Koi Palace in Daly City. This restaurant has extensive selection of items, more so than most restaurants in San Francisco. We can’t wait to try them for dinner.

All Season Signature Dishes – Everything on their Chef Special Menu.

All Season’s Menu is pretty huge. All the normal classics along with lots of other dishes.

All Season Food Picks:

All Season San Francisco Deep Fried Meat Dumping

Deep Fried Meat Dumpling ($2.65) was excellent, featuring a texture crispy crust. One of the best versions around here for sure.

Sticky Rice & Chicken in Lotus Leaf ($4.15) included 3 regular sized portions, the quality and cooking style was just fine.

All Season San Francisco Steamed Dumpling with Pork and Peanuts

Steamed Dumpling with Pork & Peanuts ($3.45) was average. Not very zesty and not particularly special.

All Season San Francisco Steamed BBQ Pork Bun

Steamed BBQ Pork Bun ($2.65) were above average. Fairly small, but nice filling.

All Season San Francisco Sticky Rice Roll

Steamed Sticky Rice Roll ($2.65) were okay, 3 small ones with no particularly good glutinous Rice.

All Season San Francisco Shredded Pork Roll With Chives

Shredded Pork Roll with Chives ($3.99) was recommended by the server and proved to be interesting. It was topped with fish eggs, making it a modern dim sum dish.

All Season San Francisco Shrimp Dumpling

Shrimp Dumpling ($4.15) were slightly above average, but one which was the piece of shell we found in one of them.

Dried Scallop Dumpling ($3.45) looked unique, and are worth giving a try.

Pan Fried Shrimp and Chive Dumpling ($4.15) were reasonable. Worth ordering if you like this dish.

Steamed Rice Noodle Roll with Fresh Scallop ($4.15) hit the mark. Nice noodles and filling.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Steamed dumpling with pork ($4.15) or Xiao Long Bao were a classic Cantonese cheater version. Housed in a tinfoil cup, these were average at best.

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
