Entertained clients from Colorado and Houston for lunch, so it was very busy but not outside of expectations. The food was quick and excellent, as well as exceedingly delicious!
At the Stevenson location they had the door open to the outdoor patio, so a cold breeze came into the main dining area.
Outstanding! Will be back! The service was great! The staff was helpful and friendly! The potstickers, pork buns, and shrimp were fabulous!
The best dim sum in SF for the past 40 years! Make reservations
Good food but too expensive. Better dim sum elsewhere.
We had a wonderful time enjoying dim sum and found the items all exquisite with flavors refined and presentation perfect. We did need to ask for items that happened to be the lower priced items however as it seems the expensive items were pushed more aggressively making it an occasional treat verses more regular. I had to draw on memory for items I liked which were not "presented from the cart" but were on the carts and were also less expensive. With that said if you know how to order correctly this could become a regular habit- dining out for a full brunch or lunch at a reasonable price for an amazing experience. The service was wonderful (except for above) and overall a very pleasant and fun experience.
Very disappointing and very expensive! I won’t ne going back
We went to celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent, but a bit pricy. All food came out hot, fresh, and delicious. We did have to wait and ask several times to get some BBQ pork buns, but the were delicious when we finally did get them. Also, requests for more hot tea was ignored for some time. We got the impression that they really wanted to turn the table but finally did bring us another pot.
Too much reliance on fried food; no shumai served at all. No veggies available. Will not return.
Less authentic than we’d hoped. Better luck in chinatown.
When ever we come to SF we must eat at Yank Sing. The food is always fresh and tastes amazing. It is pricey but worth it.
if you're craving dim sum, yank sing is the place to go.
however, it is best a) with a corporate card because it is not cheap and b) at the spear street location for variety of dishes.
Holidays rarely show a restaurant at their best, Mothers’ Day was no exception. The dim sum at Yank Sing is sublime, but our last experience was rushed, food wasn’t necessarily warm enough and selections were limited. Don’t miss this place - just visit when it’s not an occasion!
Great dim sum!! The plate of stir-fried vegetable was the MVP — a must get when you visit.
Carts of dim sum were going around regularly (this is how dim sum is traditionally done). I liked the ambience a lot.
Also, don’t forget the oolong tea!!
We had a little table that was basically in the walk way near the door to the patio. It was s chilly San Francisco morning. A very breezy table in a extremely busy area. That part was not enjoyable. The food is very tasty though.
I’d been sleeping on this location! They don’t offer absolutely everything that the other location does, but it’s just A few things missing (one of them being a favorite). I’d argue the service here is better then Rincon. Nice location, lovely bathrooms, excellent food, and they did not even have one issue on mother’s day. We ordered a selection of dim sum and when I didn’t see one of my favorites I asked Anna about them and she brought us some piping hot. Yank sing is always expensive, but it has the best egg custard tarts I’ve ever had. Next time I’ll have to try sitting in the patio area!
Service continues to get slower here. We sat for long periods between a cart of cold fried food coming around. The place was packed and only one cart lady. The rest of the food offered was carried on plates by ladies. Except the dessert cart but we were never offered one. We’ve been here several times and it continues to decline in service and the amount of food offered. And it’s way over priced.
Went to Yank Sing for lunch on a friend's recommendation. So, so delicious!! Would have eaten more but were going out for a big dinner later on. Only disappointment was that there were out of the baked bbq pork buns by 1:30 pm so we got the steamed instead.
Just normal food, we didn’t think anything special.
Soup Dumplings!!! Perfect size, bite size - very tasty broth. Could be a little more soupy - but they are nearly perfect. The Peking duck - crispy skin, great flavor. And the pot stickers - delicious! Food comes out fast and hot. Only issue is this place is pricey for dim sum.
Great for business lunches where do you are seeking something other than the tired chicken salad. Food is delicious, but pricey. Perfect for those who don’t want to wander into Chinatown or Richmond for good dim sum, but be prepared to pay $25 per person at a minimum.
This is my favorite dim sum restaurant. Top quality and good atmosphere
Wonderful place to enjoy traditional Dim Sum with the carts. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Delicious!
Food was cold
Enjoyed a very tasty and well-prepared dim sum lunch with clients today, and as always, the quality was first rate. The service is also first-class and hard to top!
I enjoyed the food at Yank Sing and the service was impeccable. Too bad they're so expensive compared to other dim sum restaurants. Brunch for two was $120... and that's just for food. We didn't order drinks... only jasmine tea.
I have been going to Yank Sing for many years and they have never disappointed me. The food is always great whether we are having old favorites or trying something new. The service is always good. I always enjoy going there.
We had a 1:30 p.m. reservation and the table was ready. That said, it went downhill from there. I had been so excited to try this restaurant having heard great things about it. I purposefully selected a time in the middle of lunch service, not towards the end, however, when we ordered the much-anticipated Peking Duck, they were 'sold-out'; when we ordered baked roast pork buns, they were 'sold-out'; they did finally bring us some steamed roast pork buns after we requested them 4 times. The dim sum that we selected from the carts was not special in any way, and several of the dishes were handed to us cold. I really do not see what the fuss over this restaurant is all about - the food and experience were sub-standard in every way.
Love Yank Sing - but be careful. It's easy to get carried away while ordering. Lunch for 4 was almost $200 - no alcohol.
The original upscale dim sum in San Francisco and still the BEST. A true San Francisco taste treat!
Fabulous dim sum which rival anywhere in the world. Shanghai dumplings better than in Shanghai.
Excelent service and great food
Wonderful food, great service, best dim sum in the city of San Francisco
So good! You could probably go to Chinatown for cheaper dim sum though!
The food is spectacular, the selection excellent, and service really good. Sadly it’s pretty expensive but somehow I guess I think it’s worth it because I keep going back.
Great food, superb service. A little pricey for dim sum. But worth it!
Just a lovely place for a Sunday Brunch Dim Sum meal. Service was excellent. We were just about finished eating but wanted some Peking Duck. The wait staff has radios and the summoned someone to immediately bring us 2 servings of Peking Duck.
also, our potstickers were tepid (as in not hot) The server radioed someone and we quickly had our serving replaced with a new hot serving.
Not perfect but everything was so quickly resolved it makes our impression even higher
The Peking duck is excellent. The dumplings were very good. A little disappointing that at 1pm they were already out of baked BBQ pork buns. You'd think a pot sticker is just like any pot sticker but their pot stickers are amazing! A good experience.
