Excellent Chinese food

Came here for an early dinner on a Tuesday night. Although it was quiet on this occasion, I have seen it very busy many times, which was my reason for giving it a try. There is a great dumpling selection and they are delicious. The menu is very extensive and has the old favourites and some more... read more

Great selection in the menu and the food is simply beautiful. The portion sizes are nice and nicely located on your way to the town centre from the railway station. reminds me of China town in London as they have a show cooking area! Would go again the next time in Cambridge!

I love the food here, really different to other Chinese restaurants, they are catering for themselves and not just to please us Brits, so you get to taste the real china. Whilst the food is great, the service and atmosphere is not, I don't expect to have my table being cleared whilst people are still eating and don't like to... More

We have been having weekend lunches at Yim Wah about once a month for the last 3 years or so. The service is fast and friendly, and the food among the best of Chinese restaurants in the UK. My wife and mother in law (Taiwanese) both love this place for an authentic taste of Asian food. Personally, I'd rate this... More

The sheer number of people frequenting this amazing little restaurant speaks for itself. The menu is varied and interesting and the food is so tasty! I went with my partner and a couple of our friends who are vegetarians. From the veggie options to the 'out there' choices of my boyfriend (duck tongues!), every morsel was a delight, although perhaps... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday and had one of the set menus for 3 people. The food was tasty but pretty average. service was OK. The place was very busy but we were sat quickly.

Came here recently for lunchtime dim sum. We hadn't booked so were lucky enough to get one of the few remaining tables. Very busy & good atmosphere. We had a variety of dim sum and each one was really delicious! Service good too. Will definitely return.

First visit and will be returning. Fab food and service. I ordered a set menu as there was so much to choose from and couldn't decide what to have!

Visited twice before writing a review just to be sure. Food was great, friendly stuff, very reasonable prices! Will definitely visit once in a while for a good and fairly-priced Chinese dinner. Special recommendation for the pecking duck, really delicious!
