We were looking for an Asian restaurant over in the Evendale area. We came upon this place and decided to try it. They were quite busy. When we walked in the major portion of the patrons were Asian and those that weren't were with Asians. We thought great they probably have really good food. There was a group ahead of... More

I stopped in for lunch on a Thursday around 11:45am. It wasn't crowd but there were at least four full tables of busy diners which was a good sign. The menu is pretty extensive and some of it was in Vietnamese (a great sign). I ordered the Crispy Pan Fried Noodles with Beef and 2 orders of the BBQ pork... More

My husband and I visit from Louisville to Cincinnati at minimum, twice a year. Each trip we are excited to visit Uncle Yips and is a must visit. They serve excellent Dim Sum for lunch on the weekends, not sure how it is done during the week. Their dim sum menu is extensive ranging from various types of dumplings, smelt,... More

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 much to look at.The decor is pretty... 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 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...
