    Classic go-to for Dim Sum in SF. Service was prompt but no more rolling carts which is a shame. Menu is more restricted than BC which is too bad. All dishes were tasty but spare ribs are a NO-GO. all bone; no meat. The restricted menu makes me think of trying some other venues in future.

    Enjoyed another excellent breakfast at Yank Sing on Stevenson St. in San Fran. I went by myself so didn't order all the things I wanted to but it was excellent ! Next time I'm in San Francisco I will take a friend or 2 so we can try different things and share. Also going early was a great idea to beat the crowd on a Sunday morning.

    They don’t offer duck anymore, or their cart service. What’s the point? Sorely disappointed. They did say their elevators were broken and that’s why cart service was suspended, but part of the lure to yank sing is being able to choose the food you want to eat. Not having the peking duck though was the biggest bummer. I won’t be going again.

    Love Yank Sing and took a visiting friend from my hometown who said this was the one thing she wanted to do while in the Bay Area. Made a reservation and showed up in time to be seated. Our selections were a delight to savior and enjoy. My guest enjoyed her time and attentive staff.

    Flavors were pretty good. Limited dim sum menu. A lot of non-Asians dining here, however, my gf and I enjoyed it for what it was. We aren't dim sum snobs for the most part. The basil shrimp dumpling and the scallop shiu mai were our favorites for sure. The XLB was solid. 7 small plates and tea...came out to $120 (including tip). Not cheap.

    Absolutely best dim sum in Bay Area. New addition was the sea bass in sweet potato, just terrific. And the Shanghai dumplings are a must, not excessively doughy, delicate bursts of soup. We always take order or orders (share with neighbors) home of the custard pies, best I’ve ever had. And friendly and attentive service - can’t beat Yank Sing on Stevenson!

    Very friendly and attentive staff. There is both inside dining and an outside patio. There are heaters on the patio but they are kind of high up - we did not sit outside so I can't comment on the effectiveness of them one way or the other. Food was amazing!!

    Served Luke warm dim sum that tasted like left overs from the day before. The Chinese broccoli was served directly out of the refrigerator as the dish itself was cold. This place used to be great. I’m not returning here again.

    There are two locations of this restaurant, and we always have gone to the one in Rincon Center. We decided to try this location out and were happy with our experience! The servers were nice to us and the food came fast! The quality of the Dim Sum here was as good as the Rincon location. Excellent place you must try!!

    Good food, quick (if impersonal and rushed) service. Not exactly personal or informative. If you know your dim sum, then this is a good place. If not, go with someone who does. Otherwise, the staff is less than helpful.

    Yank Sing continues to offer some of the best dim sum in town. Nowhere else are the shrimp dumplings as good . The service is consistently friendly and attentive. I‘m looking forward to the day that once again a full complement of dishes is offered on carts, which adds to an experience not to be rivaled. If you have guests from overseas, out of town, out of state - take them here. They will be delighted.

    The food is okay and is in smaller portions compare to the other dim sum places in the Bay Area. The service is not too good. I literally had to wave several times to get attention when I needed the water to be filled or to have the check. We sit in the outdoor dining area which is spacious. Their price is also higher compared to other dim sum places. Definitely won’t go back!

    Limited selection at this location and over priced. They also do not validate parking, which we read they did. It was a $200 meal+ parking for little amount of food for 3 people. The other location is better.

    My wife and I had been to the other Yank Sing location about 15 years ago, and this time around, we wanted to try their other location. (We are visitors to San Francisco from out of town). We were thoroughly impressed and satisfied with everything Yank Sing has to offer with awesome dim sums and service!

    We had the Shanghai dumplings, potstickers, mushroom dumplings, steamed bbq pork buns, salt and pepper pork, and honey walnut prawns. All were terrific. We do miss the cart service and the baked bbq pork buns that are no longer on the menu, but we love everything that we get, every time.

    I have been going to Yank Sing for 28 years. It is the premier destination for Dim Sum for my family events or showing off the city i love so much to friends. I can not express enough how friendly the staff are and how they make you feel welcome and like i have value. I can say all the good things. Every. One. You would not believe it till you try it yourself. Trust me when i say they are the fastest at what they do. We ordered multiple dishes and they literally and figuratively showed up a minute later. It is my pleasure to write a positive glowing review of one of my favorite restaurants in the world. They do the whole experience just perfect from start to finish. Thank you for all you do. Please do not change.
