Very good buffet

A group of us visited mid week and relatively late given the day and time of year. Nonetheless, the restaurant had a few other occupied tables and the buffet was still available. Service was really good, the choice of buffet food was wide enough, and was replenished even though the restaurant was... read more

We have not been to eat in this restaurant for about a year. Then, it was excellent food but rather pricey. What has gone wrong? Ordered a Take Away this weekend. When we collected it the inside of the building looked extremely run down and the entrance steps mustn't have been swept in months! Oh, and the Take Away food... More

Over the years I have visited this restaurant several times, each time hoping for an improvement. I can report that the standard of waiters and waitresses has improved and I have no problem with the service provided. In addition, the décor and ambience have always been good and remain so. However the standard of food leaves mush to be desired.... More

Yum sing has always had an excellent reputation, so we thought we would try out the newly advertised "all you can eat" buffet. At £14.95 per person, it seemed good value. We booked a table, although we didn't need to as we were the only occupied table in the restaurant! The buffet wasn't quite ready and we waited about 10... More

At less than £15.00 for a full buffet of high quality food with a very wide choice Yum Sing represents fantastic value which also includes a dessert too! The broad a la carte menu offers a wide range of dishes and you can get Rusty Nail and B52 cocktails as well! The wine list is wide and affordable! Did I... More

At £14.95 this all you can eat evening buffet was excellent value. There were at least 6 or 7 mains on offer, along with rice and noodles. Everything was hot and very tasty, not something that can often be said about these kinds of meals, so I would be more than happy to recommend this offer at the Yum Sing.

We love visiting different types of restaurants but this was an experience that will not be repeated, This restaurant says it has been around for 25 years, but dot understand how as the chose of menu is a little sparse and when it was served I have seen and tasted better food from most Chinese takeaways, and twice the price...

An excellent Chinese restaurant located on the outskirts of Torquay, serving a wonderful range of authentic food in delightful surroundings. We ate from the "all you can eat buffet" and there was an extensive and good quality range of food on offer. There is also an A la Carte menu available. Staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful

Myself ,my sister and my brother-in -law had planned to visit The Yum Sing because we had walked past and seen the advertisement stating that it was an all you can eat buffet starting at 6pm until 9pm we come from Manchester and we have an area called China Town which specialises in these kind of buffets so we were...
