Fairly extensive selection of traditional dim sum dishes. Most were quite good. Didn't offer white vinegar, which was a disappointment. The BBQ siaopao were a special treat. Attentive service - when we sat for a while waiting, a manager came to ask what we would like and followed up to make sure we got it. A bit pricy. They validate... More

We came here for lunch with a few friends while visiting in San Francisco. A friend had recommended we try it. The place was hopping, but we had made a reservation in advance. The food was excellent. Funny though, I had not ever experienced true Dim Sum before. We were seated, and immediately barraged by servers and carts full of... More

Not a lot of dim sum places are still using carts, and Yank Sing clings to this tradition to complete an old-school experience. The service staff, thankfully, don't cling to the tradition of being rude or disinterested; the team here are very nice. Not much to say about the space: it's a typical dim sum restaurant, tending towards the upper... More

If you are in the area...make a reservation for brunch here! Could have just ate pork dumpings for my whole meal! Jasmine Tea was perfect pairing. BBQ pork dumpling was tasty too! We had an assortment of Deem Sum options....my first experience for Deem Sum....can't wait to go back!

What a great place for Chinese food and dim sum . Large and well lighted room but get there early because the lines form quickly . Long wait by the time we were leaving . Service was excellent with servers with carts passing by all of the time , you could even ask for something they did not have on... More

Just had the shanghai dumplings. They were great and stayed together not to waste the broth. Good prices and fast service.

Very crowded restaurant. Good food but we prefer Great Eastern or Tom Kiang. You have to go early for your breakfast. The staff is arrogant, they treated us like a beggar

Can't get dim sum this good at home in DC! Like most good dim sum places, it's not the atmosphere, but the food that's the attraction. Here, the staff was attentive and explained what each dish was. Every dish was delicious - especially the steamed pork bao!

I've been hear a lot as it's near my work, and I have to say that Yank Sing is pretty consistent with it's food. You can always count on the food to roll in as soon as you sit down - so be sure to pace yourself. Order some tea and point to some quick bites you want off the... More

While there are many places in the city to get Dim Sum, Yank Sing is the tops. You will find the service exceptional and the food even better. From dumplings to lettuce wraps, Peking Duck to outstanding deserts this place is a belly filler. If it's your first time or your 100th, Yank Sing delivers.

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.
