The place is not over great looking but don't judge a book by its cover!!! The food takes time coming out, but it is worth it and it's all fresh. The owner is slightly crazy when talking to his staff but that is part of the charm.

We were a bit over pizza/pasta so went looking for something different. Trip Advisor lead us to Yami's in Central Rome. Good menu, quick service, everything freshly prepared. Basic food but perfect for an Italian break. We ordered 5 meals for 2 people and the bill was only 23€. Well worth the visit.

We stumbled on this restaurant because our other choice was closed. After days of pizza and pasta, my son wanted something different and this was a pleasant surprise. Not knowing what to expect from Chinese food overseas, we were greeted warmly by the owner and his wife. If you want to speak Chinese, they will certainly understand your needs which... More

We were looking for something different after days of great pasta and pizza. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. Best Hot and Sour soup I have ever had (and I have had lots). The beef and peppers was quite tasty and, as noted earlier, the lemon chicken was excellent. Good prices and service. We would go... More

Looked up for somewhere to go on tripadvisor, found this place... Food is AMAZING - never knew lemon chicken could taste so lovely! The man who served us was absolutely adorable, sweetest man and his face lit up when we tipped him. Best customer service. The atmosphere could have been a tiny bit better but oh well. We had: spring... More

Terrible, totally unable to eat.. A shame to be called as Chinese food. Too salty and you can even find a bunch of salt in fried rice. A lie to say its Chinese food. Do not go!

This was exactly our situation....we were in Rome and really craving for some Chinese food. We checkout this place and first we were vary of going in as it was empty..but when we went... More
