Most of my reviews tend to be positive, unfortunately this isn't one of them. Yum Sing is a very attractive imposing building looking like it's going to be full of Oriental promise. Upon entering the staff are very welcoming and show you to a table. However it soon becomes apparent that the interior is very dated and a little shabby... More

Having heard recent enthusiastic reviews from various diners of food ordered for take away we decided to have a go as it's the Chinese New Year .... we're very disappointed and are not inclined to repeat the experience. Overall I would say the food was bland, seemingly not freshly prepared - curling cucumber strips/spring onion. Crispy duck was chopped into... More

Valentine's night, extremely busy granted but our main course was completely forgotten even though we settled for the set menu, the only menu offered to us. I had to ask for our mains from a waitress clearing a table right next to us. Other diners were given the normal menu when they asked so also felt a bit short changed... More

Visited with family for my daughter's birthday. Staff made us very welcome and were friendly and helpful throughout - creating a lovely atmosphere. We choose a number of dishes from the main menu, all well cooked and very tasty. A great evening all round.
