You get what you pay for – Yank Sing has outstanding dim sum. There can be no question about that. Sure, you can get dim sum at lower prices, but also at a very lower level of quality. I would rather pay more and get better quality even if it means that I can go less frequently. Be sure to have a reservation, go early, or be prepared for a long wait. It's best to go with several people (at least three) so you can share a variety of selections.
Greatly Overpriced! – The food was OK, but this was the most expensive dim sum I have ever had by a long shot. Two of us went there for lunch and did not eat very much, and the bill came out to $70! We had nothing to drink except for tea. I was sure there was a mistake. Also, never mind asking to see a price list before you order, because most of the plates contain 2 servings. That means those 4 tiny dumplings on your plate are actually 2 servings, although there are no plates available with only 1 serving. (We were told very snootily that we should have known, and should have asked them to give us half a plate.) With all the great dim sum places in SF, why would anyone go here and spend a fortune?
