I have no idea why even SF locals recommend Yank Sing to tourists. As a local myself I have dined at all of their locations including their long ago closed down one at Embarcadero Center area since 1989. The one at Rincon Center definitely is much, much better than the Stevenson St. one. But, in general, Yank Sing is terribly... More

We had a great lunch at Yank Sing; dumplings were amazing, seasame balls were wonderful, sea bass was delicious, and the service was great. I would recommend making reservations (there was a long line even at 11am)....

I hadn't been to this place for dim sum since the mid to late 70's. It has grown up, more stylish but the food remains amazing and wonderful! Very fresh, pretty to look at and each bite better than the last! Dim sum is brought around to each table for selecting. Dining room is small but they also have a... More

Having had a terrible experience at Hakkasan (see my Tripadvisor review), we took to the streets of SF on Black Friday, not very hopeful of finding a good eatery without a reservation. TripAdvisor pointed me in Yank Sing's direction, which was a short walk from the very disappointing Hakkasan. 8 years in SF, how did I not know about this... More

We had eaten at Yank SIng on our last visit 3 years ago. At the time I thought it was both the best and most expensive Dim Sum I'd ever had. Well, it's still expensive. Everything was ok except the Peking Duck. The DimSum portion was one pancake, a few scallions, a nice piece of crispy skin and a hunk... More

I grew up eating Yank Sing chili sauce. Was very excited to visit here when realized I was in the area. Was also recommended by a few people! Don't bother. Its not worth it. Food was extremely poor considering the reputation and location. It's SF! Didn't realized there COULD be bad dim sum...

We love dim sum and were very disappointed in this restaurant. The food selection was great, but it was tasteless and VERY expensive.

The food was very good, but I do say you need to review the menu and walk in with a game plan if this is your first time going to Yank Sing. Once you sit down the waitstaff comes at you with all cylinders and you don't have time to think or access your dim sum game plan, and before... More

If you want to eat fast, well and not feel heavy after the meal, this is the place for you. The dim sum are delicious and so the vegetable option, The hot jasmine tea is served in a large pot of a liter, takes time to drink it

Whenever I am in the Chinatown area, I always try to hit a new restaurant and preferably one of the better ones. I stumbled upon Yank Sing (Stevenson St) and I could tell right away that this was going to be great. We waited about 20 min and then were flooded with cart after cart of dim sum - incredible...

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.
