Recommended by a couple of friends so gave it a try. Glad we did. The dim sum was delicious and they still use the carts which is a bonus. We had to wait for a table (20 mintues) the first time as it was the weekend but although it was pretty much full the second time we didn't have to... More

Amazing authentic dimsum lunch. There was a short wait but worth it. Soup dumplings were the best I ever had.

The restaurants crowded with people, and guests are lining up outside. Inside the Chinese staff, speaking Chinese together, are coming around to the tables with trolley after trolley of steaming hot dim sun. This is real Chinese, if you want to have real dim sun in a place where the food as well as the service it authentic and where... More

Grabbed lunch here recently while staying in San Francisco. There was a line out the front on a Thursday at midday so, like it's sister location, you should make reservations as we were able to essentially walk right in while others had to wait a while for a table. The food was excellent. They were busy so our service varied... More

This was my go-to place for dim sum in 2015 when I last visited SF; fast-forward to 2017 and Yank Sing disappoints with sub-par service, very average quality food (the shrimp dumpling was dry outside and mushy inside), and big price tags that beg for a better experience. Head to Crystal Jade instead if you want to get what you... More

Enjoyed the food, it was good quick service with, multiple choices on the cart for lunch. The server spilt the beer over my husband, which we just shrugged off, enjoyed a small selection of bites for 4 ppl, when we received the bill we were shocked that the total had come to $150 usd, it did not seem that the...

It might not be the most romantic setting in the world. And it might not be the most attentive service in the world. And it might not be the least expensive dim sum restaurant in San Francisco. But that all will be compensated by some ridiculously good steamed dumplings and other dishes. The quality and freshness is just out of... More

A Chinese restaurant for Dim Sum. The best Dim Sum I have eaten, though I haven't eaten a lot. A lot of people were there, which may be proof of the good food. The service is great, but it is pretty pricey. Recommend if the price isn't an issue.

This was absolutely fantastic. Every dish was outstanding. The sesame balls were amazing, as were the pork buns. Even the jasmine tea was probably the best I have ever had. It would be good to get reservations. We did not, but we were lucky enough to get a table.

If you have never eaten a dim sum meal before this is rather fun. Be sure to make a reservation. The restaurant wheels different carts around with offerings of many different types of small plates - sort of the Chinese version of tapas. Just be aware not to let the cart servers put things on your table that you don’t... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
