“YUM YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

This is one of the best Chinese restaurant we have eaten in, brilliant meal, great choice, and
service excellent, wished I lived in Cork so I could visit more often, but I think we would have weight problems if we did. Waiter was so pleasant and had a lovely manner.. Do visit if you
are lucky enough to be in Cork..

“Heavenly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

By far one of Cork's nicest Chinese restaurant. Decor is lovely and looks expensive. The food is good value and the staff are so friendly and attentive. If you are looking for a nice Chinese in the city, you can't beat this place.

I've been to the Yuan Ming Yuan lots of times, & not once have I been dissapoint

Foods excellent, staff are unbelievably kind & helpful; I'd recommend it to anyone that is looking for a good time.

Lunch Menu & Dinner Menu are great, The exotic King Prawn dish was the nicest meal I've ever had.

Cork's best cuisine. Absolutely Amazing!. 10/10
