Super yummy food and decent service

Best Chinese meal I've had in ages. Everything was cooked very nicely and there was a few unexpected items on the menu which didn't disappoint.

We ate after seeing a film and were hungry. The portion sizes were good for the main courses. Seaweed was almost unmanageably crispy - bits ended up all over the table. The veritable dumplings were small and a bit disappointing. The twice cook pork was lovely as was the duck in chili. Service was good and well paced. Very reasonably... More

The food was tasteless. The portions were small. The prices were high. There were holes in the tablecloth. I don't understand why the reviews for this place just didn't align with reality.

This restaurant took us back! As students in London we were used to good, inexpensive food with indifferent service. This place felt like coming home. The food is very good, with UK Chinese classics and some excellent specials. The environment is nice, with plenty of space. The staff are pleasant but not quite coping. The whole makes for a great...

In this bustling neighborhood with lots on offer, you cannot be sure of great consistent quality. This place delivers time and again. Great food; nice room; polite staff and clean!

Don't go after 10pm as you will be rushed out. Food was nice but felt like we had over stayed our welcome as staff were wanting to close up. Shame.

It was a good restaurant with a unique menu, some of the dishes just did not live up to the description. Started with double boiled beef and red date soup. This was one of the dishes that was not as good as it sounded. It was bland, even the dates were not particularly sweet, and the broth had little flavor.... More

We were looking for a Chinese restaurant in Soho to have dinner after the theatre. Read good reviews about Yming so we decided to try it. Glad we did. Everything we had was excellent. A very interesting menu. Need to go back so that we can try more things. Excellent service as well.

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 place appears to also attract some... 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.
