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 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.

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.😞

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.

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.

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.

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 :(

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..

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!

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.
