Excellent Chinese in an unexpected place

I enjoy Chinese but every once in a while want to eat something more authentic that isn't the normal American-Chinese food. Uncle Yip's is my new favorite place. Of course they still have the usual dishes, but offer a special menu with more common Chinese fare. Located in a strip mall, it isn't... read more

I was in the area and off-diet, so ... DANGER! This is a small restaurant in the corner of a small strip mall. It has a very authentic 'Asian-Dive' feel. Chinese/Asian newspapers in the entry space, Year of The Ram hangings everywhere, Freebee Chinese beer ads ... looks promising! They promote Dim Sum and that's what I came for. The... More

We stopped in at Uncle Yip's after reading a few reviews on the place. We live four hours from Cincinnati, and we were looking for something other than a chain restaurant on our trip. We were very happy to have found this place and will be repeat visitors whenever we visit the Cincinnati area. First of, the wait staff and... More

Went to Uncle Yips since we were out and wanted something to eat and see if there was any change since we heard it was under new management. Their dim sum was pretty good as usual, but the food was lukewarm. Part of it was that we arrived after 1:00 pm. There was still a lot of variety which was... More

This is a Chinese Restaurant which serves Lobster dish. At lunch time, they have "Dim Sum" menu. Each costs between 3.50 and 3.95. These are small plates, therefore we ordered 3 and a beef pan fried noodles. The house Shu Mai was steamed and very good. The foods was a little better than most Chinese, but the waitress was very...

My family has been going to Uncle Yip's for years and they've never let us down. They have really great and authentic Cantonese cuisine, and we come here once or twice a month to have dim sum on the weekends. If you want some authentic Chinese/Cantonese food, skip out on Panda Express and go to Uncle Yip's instead!

An interesting place serving the usual American Chinese food and also offering a unique Chinese menu. The Chinese menu is the draw. You'll probably notice a lot of Asian patrons - always a good sign! You just have to be a bit cautious when ordering from the Chinese menu because the food descriptions can be misleading and you can end... More

I grew up in New York and finding good Chinese food there was never a challenge. But after moving to the Southeast many years ago the only Chinese food you find there is at buffet style restaurants and not very good. I travel frequently to my company's main office in Blue Ash and was introduced to Uncle Yip's by some... More
