Yank Sing - Rincon Center
classic whole plump shrimp, with a shrimp mousse croquette encasing, lightly battered and deep-fried until golden brown; served with a sweet and sour dipping sauce.
with Pickled Turnips in Sesame Soy
Varied and well-crafted dim sum. Service poor. Prices high
Good basic Chinese dim sum at somewhat higher prices. We liked it well enough to come back the next day. Very efficient yet personable service. It seemed full of tourists with only a few locals like us.
The most amazing place about dim sum. Great place in SF.
The variety of dim sum available satisfied everyone in our party, and all were delicious. The service was prompt and friendly, and although the restaurant was busy, the layout was such that I could easily converse with everyone at our table. I would definitely come here again!
the quality of the dumplings is no longer the same as it used to be. the dow of most dumplings was tough and it felt like they were re-heated from the day before.
the service was slow til non-existing.
to top the review is that they were tow large groups with 12 or more people in near proximity who had their business meeting during lunch. as they were finished with it; the members lingered around the table just behind us and were socializing. when we asked the waiter to tell them to be more respectful towards the other guests, our request was not followed. same thing happened when we asked the manager.
This restaurant has always been on my bucket list and for that, I am glad to cross it off my list. I have discovered so many great dim sum restaurants with much better value.
I will say that the sea bass was delicious, but at $21.75 for a single, small portion, I won't be doing that again.
I made a reservation for 3:45pm on Sunday Mar 1st...the restaurant closes ar 4pm.
We were stuck...dropped off by Uber then needed to given alternative place to dine.
Bad information...bad reservation!
We had a reservation and had to wait which is not a big deal except the hostess was not too friendly and did not communicate well with us.
It is always good. A great place to take out of town friends.
The food was exceptional as always! I have been going to Yank Sing since the late eighties- when it was on Battery Street.
The only thing that I would complain about is that they don't give you free refills on soda. So they charge you every time for a small glass.😞
We have been going to Yank Sing for years. Not sure what happened this time. Dumplings were hard and tasteless.
Food was great, lots of choices and the carts came around often. I wasn't sure sometimes if I was getting the right thing because the servers were hard to understand but it worked out okay in the end. This place is good for groups, especially more than 2 people, so that you can try lots of different dim sum. We were seated outside of the restaurant, in the atrium, which got quite cold after a while. I will probably come back next time I'm in the mood for dim sum.
Yank Sing operates the best dim sum establishments in San Francisco. Try any location..you will not be disappointed.
There are many many other restaurants with better dim sum. Even Chinatown take out places. All their dumpling's skins were thick and rubbery. Dim sums from the carts were mostly on the cold side.
The food was one of the best value was ok
It was good. Service was quick and the dishes are delicious
We have been coming to Yank Sing for many years and we enjoyed this visit far more than we have in quite a while.
Great dim sum!
I was excited to find a place that has good vegetarian dim sum, and Yank Sing didn't disappoint. The mushroom dumplings were particularly excellent, and I couldn't help but admire the variety they have of not just dumplings but also sides and deserts. My single criticism is that if you're looking for something specific, it might be a while for the cart to come around unless you can flag down a waiter to call the right one.
This is our go to dim sum restaurant. High quality dim sum. Worth the extra cost for the ingredients, preparation, lots of vegetarian options and service. Rincon restaurant has parking below.
this is the best food ever! the snow pea shoot dumplings are my favorite. they literally melt in your mouth.
Lovely dim sum place!
Best always, from customer service to quality of food, never disappoints :)
Best of the best Dim Sum.
Reservations with a wait.
Always a great place for Dim Sum. We were there to celebrate a birthday and had a great and filling time.
A 3:45 reservation is problematic since they close at 4:00.They were out of practically everything , said the kitchen was closed and made us pay the bill before we were finished eating.
I thought this may happen so I asked the host days beforehand about feeling uncomfortable with us there at closing time.
She assured me it was fine.
Not fine :(
Food didn’t taste fresh and the dumpling tasted hard. Not worth the value
A friend who makes lots of money as this place has become very expensive.
This was quick and easy and enjoyable. I will go back again soon...
料理は美味しいが、値段が高過ぎる。 以前は半分の値段で食べられたのに、急に価格を上げ過ぎ。 今後はあまり行きたくない。
well, since i was a tourist from napa, i had to go on yelp reviews to help find a dim sum restaurant. the restaurant is lovely and the service is nice but the food was just basic to me. it was $100 for 2 ppl for dim sum! we didnt even buy alcohol! i regret spending that much...but i was lazy and didn’t want to go to chinatown...some of the food wasn’t hot...i think it’s a nice place for the businessman to take clients out to lunch during the week..
Great experience! Serving could be paced. A bit noisy especially when you are seated next to the kitchen.
Our luncheon with our friends and their teenage kids this past Saturday was wonderful. The kids had never had dim sum, so they were entertained by the food carts, and there is so much variety that there was something for everyone. The wait staff graciously explained each of the dishes to our friends so they felt confident in their selections. Yank Sing never disappoints - it was fun and delicious!
Yank Sing does not disappoint! We brought friends for lunch and all of us loved the variety and freshness of all the dumplings and dishes. We will be back.
Overcrowded and assigned outside seating which had limited food carts circulating and also very loud. There was construction so part of the food court outside the restaurant was blocked off. In addition, the reservation was a joke since you still need have to wait until table is available at least 15 minutes. Overall not a nice atmosphere and process and considering the very high price for the dim sum, definitely not worth it.
Service not so good always have to wait for service to clear empty plates. It took 30 mins to get a soda. Had to ask for fork to 3 different people. Also, dim sum cart is not passing as often. We always come here for years and this is the first bad service we’ve had.
The energy was fantastic at the restaurant for Chinese New Year! A shout out to Shelley who is always so helpful.
