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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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...

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

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.
