Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A famed dim sum restaurant with known for their Shanghai soup dumplings and custard creams.

Exceptionally fresh and flavorful dim sum keeps this unassuming Financial District Chinese restaurant rubbing elbows with the city's best restaurants year after year. At Yank Sing, you order by pointing to what looks good on passing carts; you may not always know exactly what you’re getting but the unexpected culinary surprises are half the fun. Keep an eye out for the Shanghai (soup) dumplings stuffed with pork, scallion, ginger and a shot of hot broth and deep fried stuffed crab claws. At Yank Sing 2 Go next door, you can order dim sum in a combination or ȧ la carte to take away. Yank Sing’s second space is located nearby at 49 Stevenson Street.
