SF Weekly's Description

Nothing is more culinarily satisfying than pointing at a cart of tasty-looking morsels and scarfing them down immediately, especially if they're as fresh and as imaginatively prepared as they are at Yank Sing, one of the city's top Chinese dim sum parlors. This bustling upscale SOMA destination serves 60-plus freshly prepared gourmet snack items daily, including lobster dumplings, bacon-wrapped prawns, and black mushroom spring rolls, stuffed crab claws, curried chicken turnovers, sliced Peking duck, and a wide array of fried, grilled, steamed, and baked delicacies. Get the refreshing mango pudding for dessert. Al fresco seating on weekends; full bar.

    this is the best dim sum i've ever had. i make at least one visit here when i go to the bay area. they serve the traditional dishes as well as some western influence dim sum. the portions are bigger than normal and the prices reflect that. they also make a chili sauce that rocks! good thing it is sold at local asian supermarkets. this place gets packed pretty fast on the weekends...
