OK Place - Nothing Special

I ate lunch at Yank Sing today. The variety of food was disappointing as I expected more items. It was not skimpy, but there is a competitor in town who has a much better selection with service and lower cost. The food was hot and very good. The beverage machine was not providing carbonated... read more

Very bland. Everything tastes the same. I love chinese but have tried this 3 times and just not to my liking. Nothing special I would go back for.

The building is obviously an old Olive Garden. The food was fine and the atmosphere was nice. Try to visit at peak meal times or the buffet items tend to get a little stale.

For starters, its a big buffet, but most of the food tasted like it was all deep fat fried in the same pot. Even Golden Corral has a better nitche (bourbon chicken) and probably better value, and that's not saying much. Unless I'm feeling too lazy to travel the extra couple of miles to go to GC, it's not likely... More

For a buffet it's very clean. The food Is average. You certainly get a lot for your money. The sushi bar is a little out of place, I have never tried it. I'll stick to the cooked food.

Yank Sing buffet is 35-foot by 20-foot takes up half the restaurant, Dynasty buffet is 16-foot by 8-foot takes up 1/5th of their restaurant...... Yank Sing has servings that are... More

The food is good, however the greeting at the front is ALWAYS very off putting. My husband and I have dined at this restaurant often for several years. The ladies at the front (a different staff whenever we go) have a sour look on their faces and, without fail, treat us as we are a bother to them. We’ve come... More
