Whenever we are in London we go to Y Ming. We have been coming to here two or three times a year for the last fifteen years and we have honestly never been disappointed! This is a small restaurant with a great team of people. This time the food was great, the service wonderful and the reception friendly and helpful...... More

Had a late night meal here, and was suitably impressed at the quick, friendly service and the quality of the food. Definitely worth a try if in Chinatown, although technically across Shaftesbury Road in Soho.

We had had a pleasant dinner at this restaurant 10 years ago on a trip to London, but on subsequent visits we had not remembered its name or location, then one evening last year on our way to the theatre we came across it and made a mental note. So it was that we made our way there for lunch... More

Second visit to Y Ming the last being February this year. On both occasions the food was very good and not too expensive for London. My only criticism is that both times we felt we were rushed. No sooner had you finished the meal than the table was being cleared. I realise that due to the limited capacity the restaurant... More

We like this place, as an alternative to the blizzard of curry houses which have all but wiped out chinese eateries in the provinces (where we visited from). Close the west end theatres where when you go early they always ask if you are theatre goers - so they focus their service on your timming. Good food, service and warm.... More

A friend directed me here. We came early but by 6.30 the place was full. Every dish was excellent. The half a duck was enough for 4 or 5 people. The mains were well flavoured and spiced, decent portions rather than huge and as good as any Chinese I can remember. Service was friendly and attentive. They knew several customers... More

I had an excellent meal at Yming, where I went with colleagues for a company dinner. Since there's a long list of things I cannot eat, including sugar, soy and gluten, I feared eating out at a Chinese restaurant would be almost impossible. In fact, I've never felt as looked after as I was by the Yming staff, who went... More

nice atmospheric Chinese restaurant. Mixture of old favourites and unusual (Mr Edwards Pork is recommended). Laid back service and reasonable price for location. Enjoyed it!

Had a meal with a friend here at the start of January. He suggested going here based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, but we both wondered if we were in the wrong restaurant. The service was friendly and polite but the food worse than my local Chinese take away. We ordered a half duck with pancakes and it came out... 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.
