Best dim sum ever!

This place has the best dim sum I have ever eaten. The shanghai rolls are unique and their pork buns are absolutely amazing. This is a must-try for an local or tourist. The service is super quick so you can even go during a lunch break in the week.

Best dim sum, big price.

San Francisco is known for its chinese cuisine, so I thought I'd try out the supposedly best dim sum in the city. I must admit, the dim sum at Yank Sing is impressive. I could tell all of the food was made in house (or at least made by someone who intended it for Yank Sing) and everything was cooked to perfection. No broken dumpling skins, no under seasoned/over seasoned foods. This is how all dim sum should strive to be done. But of course, greatness always has a price... and this place is pricey. Dim sum on sunday for 2 was $90. Granted we went dumpling happy, but I've had dim sum for 2, dumpling happy and all for $20. But definitely worth the experience of the best dim sum ever! Plenty of seating, good service.

Overrated dim sum

Yank Sing certainly does not deserve a high ranking for its dim sum. Growing up in Canton, I am a total dim sum snob and I went to Yank Sing out of its reputation. It was a total disappointment. It was very much Americanized (and maybe that is why many people think it is good). If you want more authentic dim sum, I would recommend the Canton Dim Sum Seafood Restaurant down on Hawthorne and Folsom, much more authentic and good dim sum.

Yes, the serving staff in Yank Sing speaks English, if that is more important than food quality then you probably would choose Yank Sing. Yank Sing has relatively good ambience, but to me, it is a little over done and commercial. It is in a good location, convenient for business lunch to please your clients. But for me, food is really the essence of a restaurant and Yang Sing certainly is overrated.

Still The Best

This place is an easy target because of it's reputation and it is pricey. However, if you are truly objective and judge the food on it's merits, this is the best dim sum in the city. Lobster dumplings, sea bass dumplings, pork shumai, green beans, Peking duck all excel. If you don't see what you like, just ask to special order and you will get your request promptly.

The dessert tarts are a great way to end a meal here. The egg custard tarts and Chinese donuts are worth a visit all by themselves.

Vegan friendly dim sum!

Great food, and vegetarian/vegan friendly. The could try harder on the selection of dishes, but the extremely attentive waitstaff makes up for the lack of selection. The floor supervisor actually caught us about to eat something non-vegan and intervened! Great place and much better ambiance than you would expect.
