                                            I ordered a pan seared dumpling which has 6 of them. It came piled up on a tiny coffee cup saucer with some of the dumpling skins coming off due to one of top of another. It’s a top rated dim sum restaurant serving in a 2 star way. Also very limited dim sum menu. Besides the tea pot, nothing looks nice. I don’t mind paying the price if there’s quality but this was like eating in $ restaurant paying $$$ price. Very disappointed!

                                            We ordered Sczechuan chicken and when it arrived it Was cold and and hard to chew - looked like it was from yesterday or the day before. The rest of it was OK, but I did not see much difference in taste from the local dim sum takeout. I will not be going there again.

                                            Best bbq pork bun that we have had. Pan fried chicken bun was wonderful as well as the sesame balls. Service was the best we have had at a dim sum place as we know the pace is so much more for this type of dining. Definitely will go back.

                                            Food quality was mediocre, passable but nothing to write home about. Their chili pepper sauce was very good and tasty. Service is acceptable.

                                            Didn’t have the energy from pre-Covid days. Food was good but not exceptional like it used to be.

                                            Solid dim sum… not a lot of Asian guests but the dim sum was good. Some could’ve hotter but all in all a good Covid safe dim sum experience. The outdoor patio seating is perfect. Service is actually nice and efficient. Best thing? Pepper sat tofu- amazing! And apparently the mayors favorite.

                                            We were seated outdoors which ended up noisy and windy and cold that spoiled the experience. Phoenix shrimp and dumplings very good. We’ll make sure we are inside in the future

                                            Pleasant atmosphere. Delicious food, but missed the traditional cart service. Everything came at the same time and it felt quite rushed. Not what we had anticipated.

                                            As usual, Yank Sing has the most delicious dim sum! We weren’t disappointed, even though we had to order everything ahead and not from the usual carts that circle the room I always have the sesame balls to finish- and they were as tasty and fresh as ever. But before then, the turnip cakes were a nice surprise - crunchy and flavorful , and the dumplings juicy and mouth filling. It’s a favorite place for me to bring visitors!

                                            The best Dim Sum in San Francisco; I meet people all over Asia who comment that this is their favorite Dim Sum restaurant they have found in North America.

                                            Great place to eat on special occasion, but a bit on expensive side compared to other places that offer similar food. Menu is greatly reduced. Order offer paper order, but waiter neglected to order us bottom half of order!

                                            Fast food dim sum. Lacking in flavor. All dumplings are stuck together. Soup dumplings stick and tear spilling all the goodness.

                                            We ate outside. The main issue is that it was cold and windy despite glass barriers and gas heaters. The food was quite good and fancy and very tasty, and tea service in individual spill proofed disposable cups was new but good. And good for being a good source of heat. I wonder if there are ways to make the outdoors area a little more comfortable without sacrificing too much ventilation? The exit was a 6 - 8 ft gap in the barriers and easy to get through, but was also certainly the source of the chill wind.
