Being lucky enough to live near NYC (and now Brooklyn!) and Philadelphia Chinatowns, I've had some incredible dim sum over the years. This one while not the best I've ever had, is right up there with the best. There are two major differences with Yank Sing. The service was much nicer, less rushed, even at the height of a crazy...

This place has the best dim sum we've ever had and we've been to plenty. Highly recommend the soup dumplings.

Very surprised to experience a disappointing visit after seeing the rave reviews here on Tripadvisor. Despite having a reservation, still had to wait in the long queue along with people who didn't have a booking so that didn't seem to help us much and was a great start - there should surely be two queues for fairness. We were then... More

Always busy and always good. House specialties are steamed dumplings, but worth sampling lots of the fare on the roving carts. The place is great for hungry kids because of the immediate swarm of servers offering a variety of food.

Stevenson St best location, smaller but faster during always busy times. Morning better too as they make things in the morning, run out around 2. Park across the ally on Stevenson. Food is excellent, taste a little of everything !!! Yum yum

Slammed on Dec 26 so although we called ahead and they said to come over we couldn't get in. Better luck on Tuesday but still a huge line. Gotta agree the soup dumplings are good, but $6.25 for a single bite of Peking Duck in a dumpling is over the top. The little individual bites seemed like a great idea... More

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

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
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 neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
