We had a very chilled out evening at Yum Sing for our work Christmas party. The buffet was tasty, hot and well presented. I have been to Yum Sing on many, many occasions and the food is always reliable and a very pleasant eating experience. The work evening could have been improved by having more room as we did feel...

Having driven past this rather grand imposing venue of the past few years I finally was tempted to try the set buffet at a modest £14.95. This, I understand is available Monday to Thursday from 7pm onwards. I arrived with two friends to a warm welcome from Susan the owner and we were placed on a large table and invited... More

I went here as part of a booked birthday reservation. The room had a nice feel to it and the service was great with staff popping in and out to attend to our needs. Food was easy to book and waiting times were acceptable. Overall the experience was very good and I would eat here again.

As Chinese restaurants go this was a very good one. The "eat as much as you like" for just under £15 per person was good value for money as the quality was high and plenty of selection which was quickly topped up when running low unlike many other "eat ---" places I have been. Also just sufficient food in the... More

Two hungry hikers arrived in Torquay and dined at the Yum Sing Cantonese restaurant. The building is impressive and the interior is striking and well themed in the Chinese style. Cosy booths create an intimate environment. The menu offers a wide selection of traditional Anglo-Cantonese dishes, the stand out dishes for us was the aromatic crispy duck, hot and spicy... More

This was our fourth visit to Yum Sing and yet again, it didn't disappoint . We have a selection of take aways and eateries within walking distance from home, including a Chinese, but choose to drive 45 mins to Yum Sing and would do it over and over again. Yes, it is towards the top end in terms of pricing,... More

Yum Sing is like one of those Christmas presents...you don't know what it is and it looks fantastic but when you start unwrapping you discover the top of the range present you always wanted is in fact a cheaper value copy of the original... Firstly, the service is fantastic, very helpful and served very professionally. The actual dining area looks... More

Me and my partner went here for a meal whilst on a short break in the area . We both enjoyed the meal very much all tasted fresh and good quality produce . The only thing i would say to people is that the price is extremely expensive so be warned!.
