Food is always great though very limited selection during Covid. Service was excellent, better than before Covid. We enjoyed our meal. Looking forward to the return of the traditional Dim Sum meal at Yank Sing.

Unfortunately the food was terrible, the price expensive and the place lacking in atmosphere/ambience (sterile work building with no plants/flowers, etc ). I understand it's Covid but at least the food should be terrific especially with a limited menu. It was our first, and last time there.

Still in the pandemic so ... wasn’t the Yang Sing experience I was used to. Plastic tables, no tables cloths, limited menu, had to use a phone to order.

Also the owners on Rincon completely ruined the space. Gone is the famous rain tower and historical murals.

Yank sing is making the most of the Covid situation. It’s certainly not the typical dim sum experience, because there are no food carts. And it seems as if the menu is a bit more limited. Food is good. Happy new year be dining indoors again. Waiting for things to get back to much more of a normal routine

Dim sum is not the same without the rolling carts. We do not plan to go back until full service resumes. Why? Lack of variety and ambience. Food was good as always but the menu was limited. They are fortunate to have the Rincon Center to spread the patrons out - inside and outside, so I would not hesitate to go if you are worried about covid-19.

COVID-19 has made Yank Sing a never-forgotten mythical experience. So getting to go there on Sunday and sit in the atrium was almost perfect. No carts and much chiller vibe, but the phone ordering process was super easy and they went the extra mile as we had a gift card to use to cover part of the bill.

The food was amazing, as always. The menu is still slightly curtailed, but they had a great range of vegetarian options so that the two folks in that camp felt incredibly well treated.

THANK YOU YANK SING FOR SURVIVING. Missed you SO much.

Not the same experience as pre-Covid, no more food carts coming by your table. You have to order and pay online, then they deliver the food. Not as much choice on the menu during Covid. I won't be going back until they reintroduce the carts and more variety.

Yank Sing has great food, but with COVID restrictions, all of the charm of dim sum has been removed. This isn't the restaurant's fault, but I would say customers are better off just getting takeaway than dining in until things resume to normal post-pandemic.

Food excellent as usual but did not understand why everything served in “to go” containers, not green. Is this because of Covid? Also not sure how to split an order such as potstickers

A lot of the pre-Covid menu is back for indoor dining. Certainly a greater selection than the Covid menu. No carts, but quick service anyway. So nice to see some familiar faces on the waitstaff. Still quite expensive, but I love every dish Yank Sing prepares. I can’t wait for the old days to come back, seated in the real dining room with stuffed carts!

Food was good as usual, but the limited menu, paper plates and plastic forks, and higher prices were negatives. Although non-paying walk-offs are a possibility, I wasn’t crazy about paying our bill before we even started eating. Eating inside in the atrium was certainly welcome on a cooler day.

Hands down Yank Sing is the best place for dim sum. The green beans are one of my favorite dishes. Tables have ample distance between each other, making for a safe and comfortable environment. They've created a nice environment in the courtyard with many tables separated from public spaces with a screen. The service was excellent and staff expressed appreciation for the business. We'll be back.

We have always loved Yank Sing and our not-so-great experience was probably due to COVID-19 restrictions. There was no bar service (no bloody Mary’s), no duck, the food was not quite warm enough and we were charged for a dish that we had sent back. Because everything is done online I didn’t get my receipt until I got back home when I noticed the extra charge. This will not,however, keep us from revisiting Yank Sing once they can reopen indoors.

The food was served hot and the service was even quicker than pre-COVID. Staff was flexible in moving my party to a preferred location outside. We brought a first-time guest to Yank Sing and he became an instant fan.

I had taken a friend there for dim sum lunch to celebrate her birthday; since it was outdoor dining we ate in the courtyard. She said she really liked the food and so did I. I had been there some years ago and, of course, ate inside the restaurant. Hopefully, in the near future, I’ll be able to enjoy lunch with friends inside the restaurant again.

Dim Sum in the age of Covid is not the same experience. That said, Yank Sing did a great job with a slightly limited menu and outdoor seating. There were still plenty of vegetarian options on the menu. The service was stellar, the food as good as usual, and the experience was acceptable. While we would prefer to be inside and have the carts buzzing around us and the low roar of the many, many guests, that's just not possible. Yank Sing is doing their absolute best to stay afloat including validating parking! We did our part this weekend to contribute. Please visit Yank Sing.

The outside dinning at Yank Sing, set up to adhere to COvid regulations, is very austere. There are no patio heaters, no charming outdoor lighting, no wind barriers to break the cold wind which is always extra chilly near the Embarcadero, no table clothes, no proper plates. In other words, Yank Sing didn't even try to make it even mildly pleasant. Some of the Dim sum was even served in a to-go container as was the soup and tea. So after eating outside for few minutes, all the while the food was getting colder and colder, and the paper plates blowing off the table, we just decided to put it all in a bag and finish at home. Overall, there is no point whatsoever to eat outside at Yank Sing, just take it to-go. My whole family loves going to Yank Sing, it's a special treat and I usually don't mind paying the "special" price. But seriously, for $142.00 for Dim Sum for two people, Yank Sing could have least made a little effort in making the dining experience more comfortable.

While it was not the same experience as pre covid dining, the food was still tasty. It was served in to go containers with plastic cups. The menu was abbreviated. We still enjoyed our experience.
