Dim sum is fresh, attractive, delicious, not greasy and there’s a good variety to select from. Atmosphere is nice, but hasn’t changed much for many years and could use a refresh. Budget about $50 per person if they are not heavy eaters

It could have been because we had a late reservation but this was not a great "1st Dim Sum" experience. We felt rushed, we asked for an explanation how the Dim Sum process worked and that explanation wasn't given, and the food wasn't great. It was okay but less than expected. I take ownership for having a late reservation. Lesson learned for any restaurant. However, I still think it could have been better. The whole experience including not smelling the pinesol cleaning solution while I was still eating and they were cleaning. We do know it was a clean restaurant. Grateful!

The person who filled our water glasses was outstanding. We drank a lot of water. As soon as our water became low, he was there to fill it. Tea was also filled promptly.
When we asked for certain dishes, each staff member we asked radioed it in for us and we received it promptly.

The food was really good and the service was great.

My family and I are visiting from North Carolina and we had a wonderful lunch at Yank Sing. Service was fast, food was delicious and authentic and the place lives up to its other reviews. I highly recommend Yank Sing for anyone visiting or living in San Francisco!

We have been going to Yank Sing for many years for special family get togethers. The food is exceptional. The soup dumplings are amazing. Sitting in the Atrium at the Rincon Center while eating wonderful dim sum is as good as it gets.

As usual Yank Sing is perfect in every category. Before this visit I had only been to the one in the financial district, which I also love. Each location has a different benefit. The financial district location feels more tucked away and though i'm not sure if it is their original location, it definitely feels like it. However I loved the Rincon Center skylight seating, the air is so light and airy and it's a surreal way to eat lunch. However, two floors above you are six more floors of google offices, so you kind of feel like you're eating lunch in an office building - cuz you are. But it's still nice and you'll never regret going here, ever. Best dumplings in the city.

I love Yank Sing but it has gotten very expensive ($180) for 3 people. Dim Sum is my favorite food and Yank Sing has some unusual dishes not found elsewhere. However, this time the duck was dry and the sea bass tasted very wet, like it had been defrosted.

After having an issue with finding a hair in the food it was quickly addressed by the management which was appreciated. However, I had specified it was for a special occasion celebrating a birthday there was no acknowledgment and lack of tableservice refilling water and glasses, etc.

Always a yummy treat! Just don’t sit near the bar area. Ask to sit near the kitchen so your not at the back where your the last served when the cart comes by.

We visit at least once a month. This time we had to come later (12:30). The quality of the food was fine but they stopped bringing a lot of the usual items around. We never saw Piking Duck for example. We were disappointed.

The food was not hot and at best was warm. Also, the carts did not come around as frequently as one would like. This likely contributed to the warm food vs hot food. At one point we asked the server to give us the hot items and she accommodated us and gave us food from the lower baskets in the food cart. It made a world of difference.

This place is an institution and a must go for whenever we are in SF! It's totally OG dim sum in every way, with the carts, the ladies pushing their fares aggressively, the speediness of the food being served and how they pressure you to eat more! LOVE IT each time we go there!

Decent food, but could be better. The xia jiao and shumai didn't seem 100% freshly made. The skins were sticking to each other more than I've ever experienced at any other dim sum place. The flavors for most of the dishes was good though. Just a tad bit disappointed at the relative freshness for those two.

The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. That's why I've been coming here for years.

However, in the past several months, the portions have become noticeably smaller. At $45 for two for lunch, we were still very hungry. Dumplings seem to be coming in smaller numbers. The food's still delicious, it will just cost more.

I have been a big fan of Yank Sing in the past but this was an extremely disappointing experience. Almost all the food that should have been hot was cold. The Peking duck skin was soggy and the portion so small considering the price. The Sui Mai seemed like it was premade and bought from the freezer section and 99 Ranch. The roasted pork was all fat and grizzle for the most part. The Shanghai dumplings were fine, but cold. The Chinese broccoli was good. I never saw our waiter again after we sat down. The price was exorbitant for the quality of the food. I will not return as I think there are much better dim sum places for much cheaper. Yank Sing just seemed to be resting on it laurels and counting on tourist traffic that is not experienced in fine Chinese dining.

Food was not hot. We came at the end of lunch, but if they are going to serve until 3pm, it should be the same as eating at 11am.
