Yank Sing - Rincon Center
Best dim sum in SF for 40 years. I have been coming since 1977. Fresh, delicious, efficient service, pleasant dining room where you can actually have a conversation. Yes, worth every penny. Two locations: 101 Spear Street at Mission and 49 Stevenson. Look no further!
Yank Sing is our go-to place for celebration event food. Can't beat the fresh flavors.
This trip an extra treat -- I accidentally left my jacket in the food court. 4 hours later, I went back and it was still there! Go great people that visit Rincon Center. I love that jacket.
And my mother loved her 85th birthday celebration food!
Excellent food and selection with fast service. There is so much food going around in carts that it can almost make your head spin. The food is so tasty and comes around so quickly that it is very easy to eat a lot and run up a good tab. But we very much enjoyed the experience! Looking forward to returning.
This is my favorite dim sum restaurant and I make it a point to visit (at least once) any time I'm in town. The food is consistently wonderful!
The Star is the food! As it should be!
Yank Sing is my favorite dim sum restaurant in SF. I usually go to the Stevenson St location but this location was a nice change.
Wonderful! Place is elegant but casual. We loved it.
Delicious variety of dim sum. Loved the lettuce cups and stuffed mushrooms (chicken/shrimp). Appreciated the variety of vegetables and non-dumpling items. Pace yourself and wait for the later dishes...we were too full for the sea bass and peking duck and some other tempting choices. Exceptionally good custard tarts.
Definitely the best dim sum experience I’ve had. Everything was good and well presented.
We love Yank Sing and visit every time we come to SF. The dim sum offerings are all the traditional expectations but are excellently prepared with the freshest of ingredients and expert skill.
Yum!! And judging by the lines up year after year, people are still running here for top quality, if perhaps ever so slightly overpriced dim sum. Regardless of any minor fault it has, I highly recommend it and still give it a high score and always call it a favourite.
Fooeyeas overpriced for what it was, I was underwhelmed by the experience
Wonderful patient service and great delicious food, as always! Thanks so much!
Best dim sum in the city. Go early or special items will be gone (ideal time 11-11:30).
Always amazing and a worthy tradition. We go to Yank Sing every time there is a family event.
Some of the very best dim sum; fresh, tender and very tasty. Will dream of this dining experience for a long time. Probably grateful access is not closer or i might move in. Thank you.
We had a fabulous meal at the Rincon location, its a real experience if you have never had dim sum. The food arrives piping hot, all beautiful and delicious. The staff were all friendly and attentive. We tried many of the offerings, one better than the next so don't be afraid to step out of your box. I highly recommend!
This place serves epic Dim Sum hands down better than most!
There is a bit of a language barrier- but there is usually someone close by to help out
Yank Sing is our go to for Dim Sum and a Must visit treat for our out of town guests. Always a special experience , always delicious, a family favorite for over 20 years.
Quality of food has changed to what used to be good to now I was embarrassed to bring my friend there for lunch. The soup dumplings were stale on top, the tips we're hard. The tiger prawns we're greasy and cold.
Love this restaurant! It's a must-do when we come to visit the Bay Area. I'm vegetarian, my husband and friends are not, and all of us are happy here. Highly recommended. Best dim-sum I've ever had, including in China.
Excellent as usual, although selections were very limited at lunch.
Guests from Colorado had never had dim sum before. You set the standard as always
So consistent and friendly, accommodating service.
As always, enjoyable time at Yank Sing. The noise level was minimal as we sat in the atrium outside the restaurant. This really helped make it a fantastic lunch. Food was delicious, the servers were walking around with their carts and providing everything we needed.
Hands down the best Chinese food I have eaten in years. It was awesome to have food on carts pass by and you didn’t have to wait for an order to go in.
Be warned ... this place is always full and walk-ins will wait a long time to get seated. It is worth the wait.
My family loved it!
Food and service are always excellent! Keep in mind that sitting "outside" in the courtyard area can sometimes be a little warmer when the sun is shining through the glass ceiling.
Love the food here, though can be very noisy and it is pricey.
Great service. They were very busy but efficient. Friendly and courteous.
Great, as usual. But there seemed to be the same foods on offer (shrimp har gow, crab claw, some veggies, some other buns/ dumplings). Where were the other things? We had to specifically ask for XLB, and we had to order ribs, which were so slow we cancelled it... Wish there were a great variety of foods on the carts. Otherwise, a little one note...
Made a reservation for Easter Sunday. Reviews did not disappoint. The Dim Sum was fresh, well prepared and very tasty with a wide selection of dishes.
Fabulous in every way! The food is wonderful, service terrific and ambiance in the atrium wonderful.
Noise level varies depending where you are seated. The atrium noise is diffused because of the open space. Much better for individuals with hearing difficulties.
Reservations highly recommended.
Can’t wait to return
As always, the service, food, and atmosphere were great. We had a great time.
Great dim sum and not crowded. We originally wanted to go to Stevenso Street location but it was full. We were pleasantly surprised at the Spear Street and recommend it as an alternative.
The food is undeniably tasty, but you better be careful. The bill adds up quickly!!!
Family of four seated on time. Drink order taken. Food was delivered in timely fashion until about 30 minutes into the meal. No one returned when drinks were empty. Food came about 15 minutes later again. We completed our meal and then it took another twenty minutes to pay our bill. The restaurant was not busy as it usually is especially for a Sunday. We have eaten here a number of times and never had this type of service. We will go back again as the food is very good.
It was great as usual!
Extremely attentive service. Fantastic food. Thoroughly enjoyed.
