The dim sum offered at this restaurant is well above average. There is a wide variety of choices, it is tasty, and the servings are generous. The restaurant is located near Market Street, so it is doesn't require a trip to Chinatown. There is inside and outside seating in a upscale, comfortable atmosphere. Multiple items are offered from steam carts. Servers also offer single items from serving trays. We have eaten dim sum in Hawaii and other Asian countries, and we were impressed with the quality of the food at Yank Sing. It is more expensive than some other dim sum restaurants, but worth the extra cost. It was crowded when we were there, but you can easily make reservations on Open Table for this restaurant.

Came here with our family - hubby had been here on prior trips to SFO and coincidentally I had picked it out based on reviews. It was divine! Our 14 and 9 year old daughters insist it was the best meal we ate on a recent two week vacation and wanted to go back the next day again.

As the carts of goodies pass by, you select what you'd like. This can quickly add up, but it was fabulous! I'd be in trouble if I lived close by!

Everyone was very sweet there!

In the financial district you will find Yank Sing, a great dumpling place. They come with trolleys to your table, so you can always select your favourites right away. Combined with the tea this dumpling place is perfect for lunch. Not cheap though.

During a recent trip with my sisters to San Francisco, we found ourselves jonesing for some dim sum. According to the internet, Yank Sing had a stellar reputation. We found it on Stevenson Street, and we were seated after a short wait.

The place was PACKED! We got a table in the outdoor section, then selected all kinds of delicacies from the carts that rolled by - soup dumplings (OMG), scallion prawns, Peking duck, potstickers, and more. It was a delight! When we were done, we fairly ROLLED out of the restaurant!

I'd give this place four stars for the food, but maybe only 2.5 for the service. The restaurant was very busy, and because we were in the outdoor seating section, the carts didn't come by as frequently. (I think it was pretty easy to forget about us out there.)
