A truly fun and chaotic experience ! The food is great and service is good. From every which direction servers with carts and trying to sell you delicious food! The billing is a bit confusing so go there planning on spending a lot of money .

As many other reviewers have mentioned, carts filled with delicious looking food are wheeled in between tables and you just help yourself to as much as you want. There is a price list on the table but it's a bit difficult to multitask and check prices whilst the trolley dashes past your table! So you can end up grabbing a... More

The problem may be that I have never eaten Dim Sum. We started out poorly by waiting 29 minutes for a party of 3. Several parties of 4 were seated before we were seated who came after us. The waiters bring by plates but you do not know the price of the items, unless you are experienced. One item was... More

This is an excellent place for a Dim Sum lunch, but one needs to watch the costs. Three of us managed to run up a $180 bill for lunch. I have paid more for less, so it's not a major concern. The place is exceptionally well-run and I'd have no hesitation in going back next visit to SF. But those... More

Came here for lunch. Super authentic dim sum experience. Would absolutely recommend a reservation, as it's in a very busy business neighborhood.

Most important: make a reservation and be on time if you want to avoid waiting in line for a long period of time - this is a popular restaurant! While the location is not in Chinatown, the food is probably better than in most Dim Sum restaurants in Chinatown - excellent selection of freshly prepared Dim Sum which are brought... More

I can't believe it took me 17 years to finally eat at Yank Sing. The restaurant and overall experience exceeded my expectations. Yes, it was expensive at $200 for three people, but overall, the food was delicious and well worth the high price tag. I'd say it deserves the ranking as the best spot in San Francisco for Dim Sum.... More

Best Dim Sum ever! The concept is surprising, because food is brought around constantly but in a seemingly haphazard order. You just point to what you want to eat and it is placed on your table. It comes steaming hot and is absolutely delicious! If you go with the flow, the experience is thoroughly enjoyable!

The ratings for Yank Sing are consistent with our visit for lunch. The service was rapid as we sat down. The variety of dim sum items is large with all great tasting. They do move lots of people through so the service at first seemed rushed. But with our slowing down, it became a very excellent lunch.

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.
