    Always a great time at Yank Sing! Meeting with a friend for a catch-up lunch, everything went well as usual. The best dish was the soup dumplings.

    I’ve been going to Yank Sing for over 35 years. The food is alway fresh and very tasty. It’s always been consistent with their quality!!! However, it’s a little pricey!

    This is a food shrine for our family. Needed to be in at 10 a.m. to get to flights out of SFO so booked at 10. In at 10. Multiple trays of food at our table at 10:05. Kitchen was ready to rock and roll. Food is great, especially the scallop balls. Tried the orange gelatin and custards for dessert. The orange is a delightful surprise. This is a can't miss.

    Friends lunch get together for Chinese New Year. I have eaten there pre COVID and post COVID. So I know the food is good. The last time I ate here was on a weekend and we sat in the atrium in the mall. There were no carts that came around. We ordered and the food came to our table. When we dined yesterday we were inside the restaurant because it was a weekday lunch not too busy. And the carts came around! It seems to be a trend not to have the carts so I was pleasantly surprised to have it.

    I made a reservation for Chinese New Year with my family of 8. The service was strangely slow from the receptionist to getting the check. Not sure what happened as it wasn’t like this before. We didn’t get our tea until I asked twice, really? I was very disappointed at the slow service.

    Food was delicious but service could have been better. Admittedly it was busy but we had to wait even if we had a reservation. We asked for some water and it came as we were ready to leave, but the quality and selector of dim sum was excellent and worth the wait.

    Food was very good. The service was prompt but at times food carts may skip a section due to crowded aisles, but we were able to ask for something we may have missed from a cart snd it was brought by a server. Ambiance was good.

    The best Dim Sum in San Francisco. Always busy during peak hours and Saturdays and Sundays brunch. This visit was mid week and late lunch. They kindly accommodated our small group to eat well past lunch serving time. Variety and quality of Dim Sun was amazing. We ate and talked and we’re treated like family. If your a city resident or tourist, don’t miss Yank Sing in the Rincon center, an historic building that was once post office

    Dim Sum is excellent, but variety, especially of unusual dishes, is less than before, and with their beautiful old dining room closed off, the cavernous crowded Rincon Center rotunda is not nearly as comfortable.

    The food was excellent, as always! Sadly, the ambiance is not the same when not seated in the main restaurant. I completely respect the decision to keep all dinners in the open atrium on new year's during these times of covid. Thank you!

    Serving only in the cold cold atrium. Like eating in a garage, with our coats on. The menu is half the size it used to be, and the food gets cold almost immediately. Carts are few and far between, and good luck if you're a 2-top on the fringe.

    Sat on side opposite side from kitchen. Servers rarely came by. Had to chase them down to get food. So sad compared to what it was pre 2020. We’ve eaten here for over 25 years. Won’t go back until they go back inside.

    It’s always good but a little disappointing that there was no Peking duck, even though it said only on weekends on the menu. We came on a Sunday. The carts came by often which was nice. Service was great, overall still our favorite Dimsum place

    Went on a Saturday afternoon with the family. Seated before our reservation which was great. Did not realize we would be sitting in the atrium of the building which was unexpected. Food was great. Service-average-a lot of miscommunication with the staff. Overall, the restaurant did not disappoint witht the taste if the food.

    The restaurant was overpriced, the ambience was like a outside buffet and the service was bad. We used to love coming to Yank Sing from 1985-2005 when you could order with a waitress or waiter, the technology aspect has lost the charm of the restaurant. We won't return

    Very good food. We were served by Mr. Fang, who insisted on tailoring our menu. One of his recommended dishes was excellent (braised mushrooms with barley); the other a little disappointing (cold snap peas). We ordered rise, which did not come until we were ready to settle up (we declined it). Recommend if hitting SFMOMA or Yerba Buena.

    We got in sat down used the code to order tea. Got no response and asked twice for tea. Go no water or tea yet the people that were seated after us and right next to us got tea and water. We were there approximately 30 min paid and left thirsty. It used to be a great experience when you could dine inside. They just don't seem to be able to handle the court yard. Very disappointed cause I've been going there for years and wil not return until indoor seating is available.
