Quite good but pricey

We went there in March 2015, getting a table was a bit challenging but finally we got one at a window... The food was tasty: salad as a starter followed by beef with rice. Must commend on the nice minimalistic interior design. Although located in a downtown at a place frequented by tourists, this... read more

I came here a few months ago and thought that whilst the food was great the beer was pricey so this time we had one of the house wines which at £16 was not bad value as it was quite drinkable. We had loads of food - half a crispy duck came with about 20 pancakes which was great for... More

My daughter decided on Chinese for her birthday meal and we booked this restaurant having looked at the reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. The staff were great, smuggled the birthday cake away and brought it back with a candle and singing happy birthday. It was great fun and we will... More

On our 3rd trip to Yming we brought 4 friends, 2 had dined with us before there and were keen to return. We had booked earlier in the week and had the nice round table in one of the 2 dining areas. The food as always was excellent, our friends mightily impressed. Stand out dishes included the mandarin ribs (perfect... More

I booked this place purely based on the reviews on TA and was not disappointed. The inside does not look like a typical Chinese restaurant and one look at the menu confirmed this. I've eaten Chinese food all over the world but have never seen some of the dishes we had at Yming. The mixed fish and seafood with fresh... More

We ate well, albeit with a "safe " choice of dishes on this first try. Service was... More

It has been many years since I had been to China Town and three of us decided to go to London for a Chinese lunch instead of our normal one near the office out of London. My job was to choose which one! I did the TA research in the knowledge that one of the three of us is particularly... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
