We went here on Saturday night as a group of 5 girls, one who is a coeliac. The food we had was beautiful, especially the absolutely massive prawns! My friend was advised what food was suitable for her, and they also were clear of the things that she shouldn't eat, such as the prawn crackers we had ordered. Staff were... More

Just off Chinatown, and defiantly a cut-above the warehouses of Gerrard St, more serene and relaxed with solid cooking, reasonably priced so better suited to a leisurely meal rather than cheap and cheerful hit and run affair of Chinatown.

A first visit to Y Ming. My starter, the “aubergine delight” was nice, a new flavour for me. My main meal, “Sizzling Lamb with Ginger and Spring Onions” was nice and a surprisingly large serving. My Desert, Lychee with Vanilla Ice Cream was a nice combination. Service was prompt and efficient I enjoyed the experience, but the experience could have... More

The food here is fantastic and the service is wonderful. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. We ordered the aromatic duck and pancakes and asked for the whole duck option. The manager kindly advised us that this would be too much for 3 people and that we should go with the half option. I was impressed by his honesty and... More

Wanted to drag our London family away from their usual Chinese restaurant. Tried Yming and were not disappointed. Food is spicier than Chinese food you may be used to. Spicy Cauliflower starter is great. We went for one of the set menus to get a taste of a selection of dishes and enjoyed it. Very busy restaurant and tight for... More

I was a little apprehensive about the menu after my partner told me about the cauliflower but I didn't need to worry. As a fussy vegetarian I opted for the aubergine which was very tasty. The staff are very friendly and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

We had been to YMing once before, and were really looking forward to a second visit, especially as I had pre-ordered the Peking Duck. Unfortunately, the entire meal was disastrous. We arrived, they sat us at one table and handed us menus. I said that in addition to the starters, we had pre-ordered the duck. Then we were moved to... More

Given the reputation a good number of London's Chinese establishments have for rudeness & trying to get people out the door within an hour, I spent plenty of time reviewing restaurants before booking at Yming. Not only was the food excellent, but the service was top notch too. We (4 of us) had very friendly staff who even joked around... More

I have visited Yming some times earlier, and have been very pleased. So also this time, in late May 2014. The food is excellent and the service also. This must be one of the best restaurants in it's kind in this part of London.

Went here with some business colleagues and had a very enjoyable meal. The staff is very friendly and the food tasted good and they had both spicy and regular dishes. The location in the middle of Soho makes it a good choice in busy London
