Canton Dim Sum or Yank Sing (Stevenson)? [San Francisco]

Cowprintrabbit | Feb 17, 2014 10:57 AM

Headed down to SF this coming weekend and would like to do Dim Sum on Sunday. I've narrowed it down to Canton or Yank Sing (Stevenson); criteria were walkablity from St Francis and food quality.

My only question is about the service/crowding problems at Yank Sing - everyone seems to agree the food is better. Being from Seattle, we know from good Dim Sum and it seems to come hand in hand with surly service and packed dining rooms. I can remember in particular sitting at a table for 10 with 14 people at it; we all sat at an angle with the shoulder of our chopstick hand pointed inward :-)

Given the above, thoughts please? Are the complaints from people not familiar with the normal dim sum atmosphere?
