Like many cuisines, Chinese cuisine is characterized by the region where the dish originated. Cantonese is a classic that most people know around the world. It is not spicy. Available are steamed, sautéed, fried.

I was so excited after I found Yank Sing online andI read a descriptive list of some of the special dim sum here! We arrived without reservations and were relieved when they graciously found us a table for two on New Year's Eve daytime . I recommend going with at least a list of what sounds good in your head....

We love Yank Sing and have been coming for a decade. The soup dumplings are heaven. My kids love them too and we love Sam! He is such a great server and so sweet! First and last stop every time we visit the city!

Super clean, yummy food, and superb service. I'd say like 5 star hotel like service. To be honest, this dim sum spot stands out to me because the excellent food is matched with awesome service.

Often go here for dim sum with the family, the kids love the food here, especially the pork buns. But the best thing on the menu is the Peking duck, lovely slices of duck, cucumber, spring onions and sweet hoisin sauce.

If you want average and pricey dim sum, this is your place. We had a reservation and was seated out in the atrium. Carts moved around the tables and served lukewarm dim sum. The har gow was ok while the shu mai was a bit small and not very appealing. The xiao long bao had a thick skin but was... More

Be prepared for a borage of dumpling and other fine Chinese specialties. Form the moment we were seated cart after cart of delicious offerings were presented to us in small plates. One can eat until their heart is content. Fun, unusual, delicious, you'd have to go to Hong Kong to enjoy anything close to this.

Well, it's still Yank Sing -- huge room, noise, barrage of carts and incomprehensible descriptions, plentiful offerings and all of them tasty. But is it us or the restaurant changing over time? We had a good meal, but somehow the flavors just didn't seem as interesting as they had in our prior visits. I might attribute it to aging taste... More

Pricey but worth it. I love dim sum and this was the best, freshest and most favorable I've had. Very large space that overflows into the atrium and was full both times I went. Enjoy!

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood 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 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.
