    Food was great. Be prepared for a loud environment. We were tightly squeezed into a table, but had a really large group. The food was really good and we enjoyed all the items. Additional perk was the free validated parking in the building!

    Yank Sing is a good place to introduce newbies to dim sum but if you're into a more varied menu, I'd go elsewhere.

    The place is pricey. Check your receipt before paying and leaving . they may double charge you for dim-sum items and sometimes charge you for the item you did not order. Unfortunately, I didn’t review the receipt until I got home.

    With our reservation the wait was 5 minutes before seating us. The food was very delicious and the atmosphere of family and friends dining had a good vibe. The food in the containers as the were wheeled by in carts looked extremely appetizing and were. Only downside was it was pricey.

    My review has nothing to do with those metrics but has to do with the fact that OpenTable allowed me to make a reservation @2:45 for lunch when they closed at 3:00. We showed up to an empty restaurant and doors locked. I came up to San Francisco with my 9 year old son and was out of luck.

    Yank Sing is our go to for Dim Sum. Been going there for years. However dining is still outside the restaurant, in the building lobby. So recent experiences this year have been disappointing for lacking the Yank Sing restaurant atmosphere. Hopefully we can return to dining inside the restaurant soon. Service and food quality always excellent as usual.

    Even with reservations, we waited 25 minutes to be seated. Once seated, we waited over 20 minutes before we could get a dim sum cart to our table. While the food was excellent the service and attention to customers was terrible.

    Best Dim Sum ever! Best service ever! There are two Yank Sings. We made a reservation at the one in the Rincon Center. Our cousins who are from the area were driving. Turns out they didn’t and we ended up inadvertently at the Stevenson Location. The Hostess couldn’t have been more understanding. She quickly switched our reservation to that location and we were seated in about 15 minutes. Dim Sum was so delicious. Best shrimp Shu Mai I have ever had. Plus the pot stickers and soup dumplings were stellar. Everything was delicious. Great Lunar New Year event!

    Unique venue in the atrium of the Rincon Center. It was easy to park and easy from public transportation as we were coming from different parts. The dim sum was fabulous and plentiful with options for the pescatarians and meat eaters, and even something from the menu for the pickiest eaters in our group. I enjoyed the lichee mimosa, a delicious take on the classic brunch option. We were put in the farthest round table next to the bathroom (tie goes to the ugly table!) but we were well attended even there. At least we didn’t get a square table!

    Lovely dim sum experience. Memorable dish-sweet potato fish roll 2 of 3 of us were new to dim sum, and the service was a little rushed (=didn't explain much). It would have been fine for more experienced dim sum diners. Overall, we'll surely go back.

    I've been a customer for nearly two decades and I'm sad to report that the dim sum here isn't as good or as varied as it used to be. The Siu Mai was hardened by overcooking. The Har gow was delicious and as good as ever. The Char Siu Bao Dumplings are still the best we've tasted. The soup dumplings were over steamed which seems to be a theme with some of the items we sampled. Perhaps this was just a bad day so I'll return to determine if its a trend or a one time event but until then I hesitate to issue a recommendation. It does appear that many of the missing menu items are offered on the weekends only. If the consistency doesn't return to the old standard on all the days they're open, I suspect that Yang Sing will be joining the sad list of closed SF icons. My hope is that they fix the problems and have continued success.

    Yank Sing remains a favorite for dim sum. The biggest drawback was the service, which unfortunately was uneven. As usual, we were bombarded to an almost unbearable extent with servers and their carts when we first sat down. We chose a few items and asked other servers to lease return in a few minutes, to give us time to enjoy our food while it was still fresh and hot. Some did, some did not. To her credit, one server who had sea bass on her cart did return later, bearing freshly prepared fish, which was delicious (as was everything else we selected). I wish Yank Sing would Save room for dessert. Yank Sing's sesame balls and egg custard tarts are excellent and worth every calorie.

    We like to go to Yank Sing with kids or large groups. The dim sum variety is great and ordering off a menu is also an option if you know what you want. The dumplings are delicious and there is a huge variety. It’s a bit overpriced but they do a good job of serving a lot of people quickly so for the special occasion it’s worth it.
