Fodor's Review

This granddaddy of teahouses in a quiet location on Stevenson Street—there's also a big, brassy branch in the Rincon Center—serves some of San Francisco's best dim sum to office workers on weekdays and boisterous families on weekends. The several dozen varieties prepared daily include both the classic (steamed pork buns, shrimp dumplings, egg custard tartlets) and the creative (scallion-skewered prawns tied with bacon, lobster and tobiko roe dumplings, basil seafood dumplings). The tab can rise quickly, so pace yourself. The take-out counter makes a meal on the run a satisfying compromise when office duties—or touring—won't wait. The Shanghai soup dumplings are perfection.

Yank Sing Review

We go to Yank Sing every time we visit San Francisco. It provides good-quality dim sum, a variety of dim sum that's good enough for us - while we eat dim sum several times a year, we're no experts - in a clean, pleasant restaurant. If you time it right, there's little or no wait for a table. It's always a fun experience, and our kids enjoy it too.
