    Baked BBQ pork buns are off the hook at this quite and tame Yum Cha joint. Bookings are essential and the service is fantastic. Finish off with a custard tart and make sure you have room for it!

    Very good food, but bring a fat wallet. They bring Dim Sum on numerous carts-don't just take whatever the hand you on the first cart-there will be more. Be patient and get there early.

    I loved the spinach dumplings. The XLB were nice but the skin did not hold. They come through the restaurant with carts constantly so you can spend a lot quite quickly! $100 for 2 people for lunch!

    If you want the Goldfish Dumpling, you need to go to Rincon Center. Also, you can order dimsum by the piece. So you can get a half order of Egg Custards.

    Service can be spotty in terms of getting the attention of the dim sum carts when out in the patio. Thankfully the wait staff are very attentive and can grab dishes for you upon request!

    Has the best and most elegant Dim Sum available. Do not leave without trying the soup dumplings and the BBQ pork buns. Visit the to-go counter for takeaway service.

    Fresh, well made, and tailored to the western palate -- dim sum your (American) grandma will like. If you want cheap and greasy (or the california cuisine influence bothers you), go to Chinatown.

    Pretty expensive, but very delicious, nice service, interesting choices. Mushroom dumplings and daikon cake are great.

    Steamed Pork Buns are killer. Shanghai dumplings are the best in SF. As is the duck.Don't be afraid to say no to the pushy dim sum servers

    Best Dim Sum I've ever had. But $120 for 3 people to really enjoy a lunch...doubt I'll be back. Just as good places for 1/4 of the price.

    Amazing dim sum worth the price! Cha siu bao, har gow, Dan ta, and xiao long bao are all delicious

    Make sure you realllly want the "specialty item." $29 dim sum sized piece of seabass, HA! Really good tho, THE BEST, not knocking it.

    Awesome array of vegetarian dumplings. Just order from the menu rather than the carts and they'll bring it straight to your table.

    Good work lunch place right in downtown. Pricey but delicious! Too bad they don't have some of traditional/standard dim sum plates though.

    Soup dumplings, pork bun, green beans with garlic. Too $ but very tasty. Good for a groups and if you want a proper sit down meal for dim sum.

    You should try the Xiaolongbao! While tasty soup is flowing in your mouth, you will feel as a little miracle is happening to you!

    They are not the cheapest dim sum restaurant in town, but they may be the most delicious! Love this place! :-)

    The only dim sum restaurant I know of with a James Beard Award! Everything is delicious. Went there twice during my SF vacation!

    The dim sum here rocks. Don't bother with the menu, just pick off the cart as it rolls by. Be prepared for a heavy bill though

    The dim sum was tasty and fresh but extremely overpriced. Traditionally, dim sum is supposed to be a fun, cheap and accessible brunch experience.

    Superbly tasty (and expensive!) dim sum, but hits the spot when you don't feel like walking to Chinatown on your lunch break.

    Be wary of the first 'signature' dumplings. $13 off the bat. There are better less expensive dumplings. Check the menu and get what appeals to you. No rush. They'll be back around eight more times...

    Very decent dim sum, trolley service. Not cheap though. Love their own-brand chilli sauce.

    great food but the servers are pushy. be prepared to stop your conversation every 30 seconds in order to turn down more food.

    Very slow when they're busy, and they aren't honest with their wait times to get a table. Good food when you get it.

    Good deem sum but very expensive. Be careful what you choose from the carts! That bass looks good but it'll set you back $36.

    Tasted good & feels like a clean restaurant, but comes w/a hefty price tag. I'm used to paying $12 for 2 people & bill here was $50.

    I just read an assessment of the pushy dim sum waiters. Dim sum waiters are suppose to walk around table to table asking you if you want the food they have. That's how ALL dim sum restaurants are.

    Make sure you coordinate with whoever you are meeting. There is more than 1 expensive dim sum place called Yank Sing.

    Expensive compared to most other DS restos, especially if u r from NY, but the quality of ingredients was excellent. No greasy feeling or MSG headaches.
