    We came here because it was a few places that still delivers dim sum in the steaming carts. Everything was delicious, but a lot of food so recommend to order a little bit at first and see what others are eating. Otherwise you’ll be done in five minutes. Lol.

    As always, Yank Sing presents its outstanding dim sum selections in the best way possible - via carts. Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh. The service is friendly and knowledgeable, and the place is super clean. I was looking for a dish I had many times before, which I wanted to present to my husband. The server asked what I was searching for, and not 5 minutes later she brought it. Every person I have ever taken to Yank Sing has loved it. Go! You will love it, too!

    Cart service. Very good food, but the selection seemed more limited this time. They ran out of too many things. Too many menu items were only available at the other location.

    Dim Sum at Yank Sing is always consistently good. Service is attentive as well, although around 1:30 some of the items were finished already and not replenished. The location at Stevenson is much smaller than the one at Rincon Center, but less noisy.

    Always a solid Dim Sum experience at Yank Sing ! It’s so nice to see the dining room full of people and the brave souls out on the patio on a rainy January lunch hour ! The dishes are all ways perfectly executed and if you don’t see what you want on one of the carts all you have to do is ask and the dish will arrive shortly piping hot ! Always look forward to returning to this favorite lunch spot in Stevenson Alley .

    This was our first time at the Stevenson Street Yank Sing, and based on our experience, it's the branch we'll be going to from now on. Not that there's anything wrong with the Rincon Annex establishment, but our servers were so charming and helpful, the ambience was so pleasant, and the dining room so intimate, that we just couldn't think of going elsewhere now. A special call-out to Edgar (if I remember his name correctly) for his attentive presence. P.S. We've been dining at Yank Sing for such a long time, we remember them in their little place on Broadway near Stockton Street. Long live Yank Sing!

    Food was yummy. Service was excellent. However, the restaurant was unusually cold (door open to patio in January?) which affected our experience, i.e., temperature of food, personal comfort. This can easily be addressed.

    Hands down best Dim Sum we’ve ever had. Didn’t think Ton Kiang from back in the day could be topped! First trip back in SF in 20 years, brought our kids and were so thankful that cart service is back!! We sat with a 11:30 reservation and it was not full, but by noon the dining room was full and filling the outdoor area. I will say with the open doors it was chilly, but we were prepared with light jackets. The service team was great, very helpful, friendly and very attentive! We were there for a while and never felt rushed or ignored. Food was on point! Definitely on the pricey side though, we were not prepared for $250 dim sum lunch, but it was worth the experience, we wouldn’t be going weekly but was a special day for us. We were the slightest bit bummed that the menu seems a bit more limited than way back when..no char siu bao, cheung fun, stuffed eggplant… but the flavor and freshness more than made up for it. Between the 4 of us I think we had most of what was offered, everything was 10/10 but some standouts were the wu gok, sheng jian bao, and the still warm egg tarts! Absolutely a must go!!

    Great dumplings. Unfortunately, it was very cold & drafty in the restaurant & I was forced to wear my coat through the entire meal. I was also disappointed to find that there was no hot soup that did not have pork in it.

    Consistently amazing quality. Over the years every time it's great. I'm a vegan and finding vegan dimsum isn't easy. They have amazing options that aren't just your typical veggie bun. There's variety of flavor, and color with the vegan dumplings that is the best I have ever seen. I have yet to find any place that compares.

    Always great. Only slip was soup dumplings stuck to paper, which is unusual. But waiter offered to replace which we declined since had already eaten some. But he insisted on comping. Love this place and am a regular. Will Peking Duck buns ever return as I miss those?

    Our family had dim sum for lunch. The food is good, not exceptional, given the price point. There are comparable ones in food quality at a lower price point in San Francisco. The service is rush. A dim-sum cart server came and asked if we wanted anything from her cart before I sat down.

    Food was good. Servers were nice but I waited about 30 or more minutes for a glass of water and must have asked politely about 5 times for water. The food is salty due to soy sauce and it’s kind of a necessity. They apologized and the place was busy. The water was lukewarm and the refill had an odd taste. Not what I expect from a nice establishment. I doubt I’ll return. I love Toppu for dim sum and it’s not crowded and far less expensive and the service is great.

    Friendly but robotic service; no effort to get to know the customer or provide answers to most questions. They pushed food on us before we’d even ordered tea or put our napkins on our lap. Very few vegetarian offerings and just one small-sized chicken bau on any cart. (Bau, to me, is what dim sum is all about.) Asian American person near us, however, was quickly invited to order whatever they wanted from the kitchen. Not us; it was take it or leave it. I doubt we’ll be back.
