We love this restaurant. Excellent service, & best dim sum we’ve ever had. Custard pies are awesome, we buy extra to take home for the neighbors (and us). Prawns and walnuts always dependably tremendous, as are the Shanghai soup order. Make it a point to go 1-2 times a month!
Great how they incorporated technology with their ordering system so that they did not have to wheel out the food into the public patio.
Food was great. Fast.
It’s nice to have some of the favorites back on the menu
We came into the city for a dim sum lunch. The ambiance was a bit spartan but the tables were far apart and there were heaters to take the chill off. Service was great and the food is as good as I remember it. The only downside is the smaller selection available on the menu, but still a lot of my favorites and a lot of variety, all quality ingredients and deliciously prepared. Stuffed crab claws were great as were the steamed shrimp dumplings. We were stuffed and didn't have room for noodles.
All of our food came hot and in compostable take out containers. Ordering via phone was easy and our food came out quickly.
First of all — amazing food, all around. I got a bunch of veggie options and my parents had the meat options and they were both delicious. However, eating out can be worriesome right now, but staff at Yank Sing did a great job of making sure everything was sanitized and safe for us. Felt very good eating there, especially with their contactless order of payment and disposable utensils.
IT WAS THE FIRST DAY IF CHINESE NÉW YEAR
NEEDED STANDING HEAT LAMPS
DIDNT EVEN HAVE NOODLES ON MENU
ITEMS THEY SAID ON INTERNET WAS NOT AT ALL BEING SERVED
Limited menu and pricing is ridiculous high. $14 for 4 sesame balls?!
Always the best dim sum in town. I generally visit YankSing about 25 times a year. Covid has hurt business but the quality is even better as the food s ordered for you and comes out fresher than ever. Please support this place or there will be no more YanK SIng
It was good to be back. The menu is a bit limited, and the experience is changed by the manner in which the food is served, but it is a pleasure to be able to return.
The heat lamps are fired up for outdoor dining and the Dim Sum is excellent as is the gracious service. So glad to be able to have lunch here again. Highly recommended!
It was very nice to be able to go back to Yank Sing after so mss as my restaurants have been closed. Food was delicious
Great service. Different presentation with Covid (no steaming cart service). But food is as great as ever.
soup dumplings are so good; the food is just amazing;
They have done a fine job with Covid precautions
We had our traditional after Thanksgiving lunch. Luckily they have an outdoor patio. You now pre order your food and it was delicious as always!!!
We're sad that it's become too cold for us to enjoy dining at Yank Sing Stevenson. The heaters seem to be hung too high to be effective, and the cold wind whistles through. The food from the limited menu is still very good, but having two or three dishes brought all at once means that some food is cold by the time you get to it. We love the soup dumplings, the pot stickers, the mushroom dumplings, the sauteed string beans, and the honey walnut prawns. Until the weather warms up again, we'll be doing takeout from this place.
Maitre’d was horrible. Didn’t honor reservation and didn’t take order. Fortunately his female counter part stepped in and helped us. She was great - he was clueless!
Lena was very helpful
The restaurant had a COVID setup and was very diligent about taking all precautions. Dining sets (tables and wipes and chopsticks were pre-sealed snd so we’re the chili and soy sauce). All staff was diligent with gloves and masks and distance. Staff was WONDERFUL, very attentive, thoughtful, helpful and VERY gracious. The food was still as wonderful as I remembered it to be. (We ordered about $160 between the 2 of us and brought a bunch of food home which I was glad to do. This restaurant has always been my favorite dim sum place since the early 1990’s. I brought my best friend for her birthday snd she had never been to Yank Sing and I explained the restaurant’s history and that it had been serving the financial district for decades and often availability for seating was difficult. She absolutely loved it! We can’t wait to go back!
Covid conditions and blustery cold outdoors. love food at both locations lack of indoor seating is challenging.
Brought family from out of town. Food was very good!
Excellent food and service. We arrived at 2:45, they were closing at 3:00. We never felt rush. My wife was wearing a boot due to her broken ankle and needed to go to the bathroom, they had someone accompany her the whole way and waited for her. Dim sum is definitely one of the best in San Francisco. It reminded me when I was eating in Hong Kong. We can’t wait to go back.
Everything was delicious 😋
It was not the restaurants fault that the mayor closed the indoor seating. It was really cold outside. Food was delicious as always. Bummer that the menu was limited too. Always a San Francisco treat. Totally a cool to go spot for take out.
Excellent Dim Sum. Not the full menu, but great choices. The service was fast and the food hot. The outdoor seating is a bit chilly, even with the heaters, so layers are necessary.
I would normally give Yank Sing five stars all the way but these are different times and I appreciate that the owners and staff are doing the best they can. I do miss my favorite dishes like Peking duck and squab lettuce cups. All I ate was four kinds of dumplings. Next time I’ll try the soup. I’d go again, of course, as it is one of my favorite restaurants. Thanks to Yank Sing for being open.
We just love Yank Sing / best dim sum ever. The fresh egg tarts are to die for. Everything is outstanding, but the Shanghai dumplings & honey walnut prawns particularly stand out out as terrific. The staff and maitre d are efficient, knowledgeable and very friendly. We accidentally left a jacket, and the maitre d came running after us to return it.
All the food was perfect. Great flavour, very nice each dish
Overpriced mundane dim sum (average to below average quality and taste, but top-notch price). Noodle soups are of the lowest quality I have seen (I have seen better store-bought instant noodles). I will never return.
We are okay with the abbreviated menu, but the outside is just TOO COLD. The food is really good, but because the whole order comes at once, half the meal is cold when it should be hot. Would be much happier if there were more heat sources and if the dishes could be brought in 3 or more stages to keep them hot. And we are sad that baked pork buns are not on the menu. We will eat here often, but we will pick the warmest days we can!
I had a reservation and had to wait an extra 30min for them to sit those who came before me without reservations.
Very rude woman manager greeting (more like yelling) us in. We were not clear about their Covid procedures because every places are different. Not a real dining but more like doing your takes and eat at their table outdoor. However, we do not deserve rude manners from this manager. Foods are not even that good for the price. Go to Harborview and enjoy your real dining at their beautiful view outdoor patio instead!
This was our first visit to Yank Sing under the pandemic restrictions. It felt unfamiliar to pre-order our dishes from a more limited menu, but the quality of food was as good as we remembered. The service was efficient and pleasant. We'll definitely be back!
Perfect place for lunch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They set their dining experience up perfectly for the times.
Yank Sing is always outstanding. I have never had a bad meal there and have gone there (except during the closure) with a friend or my husband at least once per month for years. And now and then, when downtown, on my own. Food, staff, service all are excellent. YS is one of my favorites in San Francisco.
The menu is pretty paired down and it stings a bit to pay premium cost to eat on disposable plates and silverware due to Covid. The service was extremely lacking. We sat for 30 minutes after finishing our food waiting to order more & get more tea trying in vain to flag a waiter down. They never came back to check on us after we ordered.
LOVE the dumplings!! And the staff!!! Can’t say enough!! Seeing Shelly at this location made my day!! She is so warm and friendly!! One reason we keep coming back!!
Need to order from a very small choice menu before you sit down. Food was ok but not what I am use too. Way to expensive for ok food.
Sitting outside was pleasant - we were near plants and etched glass. Their dim sum is the best in the Bay Area, though a little pricey. It was a great treat.
Lunch for 6 was over $300. I thought meal was over priced.
