Very disappointing and very expensive! I won’t ne going back
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.
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.
Yank Sing is THE ONLY place that could FLOURISH in such hard to find locations. Because, they are ABSOLUTELY THE BEST.
Servers took forever to come around and there was not much variety of food. The food itself is excellent, but value wise it is lacking.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff, eager to explain the dishes. Food quality outstanding including some special preparations - Peking Duck and Xiao Long Bao.. Yank Sing is a can't miss..
Eating at Yank Sing is like visiting an old friend. I first encountered the Chan family enterprise in 1965, when it was located in an old North Beach house, with a dirt parking lot in back. The food then, as now, was superb. You never forget the first place you have chicken feet. I’ve followed the burgeoning empire as they’ve moved up, always to bigger and more prominent locations.
I like the Stevenson St store because it’s quieter and the trip from kitchen to table seems shorter and quicker. Dim sum carts arrive randomly; you get what you see. On this visit, the soup dumplings, har gow, sticky rice, and fried jumbo shrimp were particularly good. We were so early (10am) it wasn’t possible to get chow fun; no matter, we made up for it with cart-delivered bounty. At the end, we ordered egg custard tarts (not to be missed). They came from the kitchen blisteringly hot with the custard set just so and the rich crust at its peak. Since I no longer live in San Francisco, I have to connive to make a trip to the Bay Area. It’s worth the effort to eat at Yank Sing.
Food was good , not great ! Fun experience with friends for lunch. Our server Kelly was amazing!
We've been here many times but not for at least a year. Our small Dim Sum meal for the 3 of us was $120 plus tip. Ouch! We'll stick to the takeout side for a fraction of that.
The food is always good and the service impeccable. Good variety and innovative desserts.
Fantastic dim sum. Yes, it’s expensive. It’s clean and free of mysterious ingredients. So not as adventurous as some, but really really delicious. Get the crazy jello oranges.
