Yank Sing has seduced the palate of all ages and has provided an accommodating atmosphere for all types of functions ... business and pleasure alike.On weekdays, there is an air of energy and purpose in the dining room as customers from San Franciscoac2s surrounding financial district hold business lunches, and Yank Singac2s deem sum carts laden with freshly made offerings weave their way around the tables.Those who need to get quickly back to their offices or just wanting to enjoy a satisfying meal to go, make their way to the take out area for a Yank Sing combination lunch.On weekends however, Yank Sing's tables spill out into the elegant surrounds of the Rincon Atrium and the 49 Stevenson Arcade; filled with friends and family, laughter and conversation.
Yang Sing is a fine Dim Sum Dining! My entire family enjoyed the delicious dim sum and it serves a variety of food, such as seafood, poultry and meat in portions.

I have all good things to say about Yank Sing. It is a great place to bring your family and enjoy its excellent dim sum. Dishes come in carts.
The service is wonderful. I love the people in the reservations too --- they greet you with a smile!
I am a frequent dinner at this fine restaurant. I go at least once a month!
Great place, food is excellent!!
We go there every time we are in SFO.
Tremendous selection of dim sum that you don't normally find else where. A lot of carts so there is no waiting for food. We will be in SFO after Christmas and the whole family is looking forward to returning to our Favorite Dining place!!
I love me some Yank Sing. I've been to some of the dim sum houses from here to Sacramento and have always been left wanting. Most places will stick to the pork/shrimp dishes, but I don't eat either one of them, so I'm left with some rice and green beans. Yank Sing has lots of veggie friendly dim sum as well as alternative takes on tradition like crab cakes or stuffed mushrooms. It's great for the family get togethers because everyone can have something. The kitchen is accomodating and the service is friendly and great. Just remember, make reservations if you can. Waiting an hour with carts racing by you isn't fun. Save your cash, it's not cheap, but it's certainly worth it.
I'm not quite sure why there are rave reviews of Yank Sing. Save yourself some money and go to Mayflower on Geary between 26th and 27th. Don't bother with Tong Kiang either it's more catered to tourists
Food at Yang Sing is fresh and tasty. It's probably the best Dim Sum I've had. And that's years of dim sum eating.
Staff are friendly and try their best. When we first sat down, the carts weren't getting to our table, one of the young ladies went to grab some and delivered to our table.
It's true that price is higher than what you would pay at other dim sum places at China town; I would guess it's about 1.5x - 2x of what I usually pay at other places, but you do get what you pay for.
This has to be the most over-hyped restaurant in all of San Francisco!! The food was fine, but this place is ridiculously expensive. I had never before spent half as much on dim sum as I spent on my one meal at Yank Sing. One item we ordered was $16! $16 for dim sum!! There are a number of other places in the City where the dim sum is as good or better, at much better prices.
this is my first high class Downtown dim sum place i ever ate in, second is koi palace , yank sing is a clean place very fancy, the dim sum is pretty good, much better than the ones at Chinatown. there is good services, friendly waitress. pretty expensive. but i think is worth eating
We never miss an opportnity to visit here when we are in San Francisco. The food is fantastic, authentic, and although a bit pricy it's well worth it. Their Dim Sum is the best in town, and probably on this side of the Mississippi! Sundays it's a bit crowded but the wait is worth it. We've introduced friends from Boston, Vancouver and Denver to this place and they too visit when they're in town. Treat yourself to the best and visit them when you're here!
