We were entertaining several friends and thought a Chinese meal would suit all our tastes. The Yum Sing is not your average Chinese restaurant, it is a Victorian Villa. The staff were welcoming and helpful, having a great deal of patience with a large party of people all ordering and changing their minds, (you know what large groups are like).... More

I took my elderly parents to this restaurant with my 6 yr old son and wife , the staff were brilliant and the food was superb. The meal with wine was still less than £100. Brilliant place to go.

Returned for family celebration. We ordered Banquet b which included pancake roll and seaweed starter and king prawn, chicken and crispy beef for main meals. Plenty of choice and all delicious. We will be back for the next family celebration .

I have been a customer here for many years - but recently visited with some of my wife's family while they were on holiday in the area. I was a little nervous as I know one person in the group was very particular about food. We all opted for the midweek buffet and were amazed with the choice, quality &... More

We have been to this restaurant several times whilst being on holiday over the last seven years and have never been disappointed. The food is always good, served piping hot and served in very pleasant Chinese themed rooms. The waiting on staff are always very polite and helpful, making a most enjoyable evening.

Well been away since June and glad I have came back. Nothing had changed since my last amazing visit except this time I went for the A la carte instead of the buffet ( nothing wrong with the buffet ) and got to be the best beef dish tasted in ages. Enough about the food though not enough space the... More

Went to Yum Sing tonight on the spur of the moment after looking online for somewhere to eat. So even more pleasure from a really good meal, with staff extremely friendly and attentive. Thank you for a lovely meal and evening. Lynda and Robert from Evesham

The weekday 'all you can eat buffet' is excellent value from 6pm. You know the food's good when local Chinese people are customers and locals recommend, and so it was! Nothing to fault here at all! Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.
