This was our first time trying Dim Sum and Yank Sing was recommended by a few friends some of which live in San Francisco so I figured it had to be good. Going by some of the reviews here stating that it gets crowded and there are lines of people, we went right at opening, 10am. We were first in... More

I have been going to Yank Sing for dim sum for a very long time. The food is always extremely fresh and very tasty. There is a large variety of dim sum choices but some of my favorites are breaded and deep fried crab claws, steamed or baked pork buns, lettuce wraps and sesame balls. This restaurant has many followers... More

This is THE place for dim sum in SF (although some locals may disagree). Prices are moderate but the food is top notch. Service was great and they didn't miss a beat. When we thought we were stuffed they brought out roast duck which we couldn't resist. Either location is excellent as we've eaten at both. Will always come here... More

Trolleys bring delicious dim sum to your table. Can be very busy with long wait. Take your time and enjoy each dish.

We were a group of 11 people and a baby, with reservation, and were set up very promptly by the hostess. We were accommodated with separate checks for various couples and a foursome within our group who have different preferences, such as some do not eat pork. Dim sum was served promptly. I must say the tea was also very... More

We are at Yank Sing as we needed some Asian food. Yank Sing was very busy on a Sunday lunchtime for dim sum. We tried the Har gow, Siew mai, Kai Lan, bean curd sheet roll, and a vegetarian dumpling, as well as the bean curd dessert. The food was a bit plain and definitely needed chilli. Generally OK -...

When in San Francisco make sure you find the time to have lunch in one of the finest restaurants in town. You will enjoy this amazing place. The food is excellent and the overall experience is not to be missed.

Yank Sing has excellent Deem Sum food. I enjoyed very much the "soup" / liquid dumpling. Other dishes such as spicy Fried chicken and sticky rice are also great. Only detail is that depending on how many dishes you pick it will cost you much more than I would expect in a Deem Sum. But it is totally worth. Hope... More

Our friend raved about this place and made reservations. The soup in the dough was so tasty. We had several things and could have eaten more. The scallops were so good as were the pork buns. I look forward to returning.

I've been to many Chinatowns - NY, London, Los Angeles and San Francisco and, although Yank Sing is not located in SF's, it offers by far and away the best dim sum of all. The waitresses, with their carts are attentive and the food is spot on.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
