“Authentic Chinese Food Without the MSG”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The chinese food here is very different to your MSG sodden takeaway rubbish. Although slightly more expensive than usual, it still begs a try.

The restaurant is family run and the staff are very friendly,

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The service in the Yuet Ben is always excellent!
I regularly visit with both my family and friends and have been doing for many years. The staff are friendly, helpful and chatty. The food is always flavoursome and fresh. I would strongly recommend to anyone that they should visit the Yuet Ben!

“Best food ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I thought i would try this restaurant and i was not disappointed in it at all, the food was amazing, the amounts were just right and very filling, the entire night was great, when we arrived we were greeted in a friendly manner and the drinks came quickly, we had not noticed how much the time had gone by while we were there. The food came quickly with a smile as well, It felt like we were at home. if your in the area then go here straight away you won't be disappointed

“Fantastic night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Having missed a train back to Chester myself and my girlfriend decided to have a look around for a place for food Yuet Ben was the place we settled on, I was very impressed to learn it's been a family run business for a long time the welcome was fast and friendly and they attended to our needs very quickly the food choice was fantastic and very well presented. I cannot wait to return to Yuet Ben and as a supervisor to a restaurant myself strongly recommend this place to everyone!!

We are sorry that the client did not enjoy their experience in our restaurant - we take any and all reviews seriously, and act accordingly to them - however, we take issue with the accusation of price - Chinese food is not, as has been often described, 'cheap and cheerful." Real Chinese food takes time and effort, a philosophy with which we have adhered to for the last 30 years. As a result, our food is priced accordingly, however, it is important to note that our prices have remained static throughout those 30 years, meaning that in real terms, our prices have in fact fallen. We do not for example pass on inflationary increases, nor do we float our prices to reflect changes in the price of commodities, as a result, our prices have remained competitive with other restaurants targeting the same market segment - in fact, not only have we not raised our prices, we make a point of sourcing all ingredients and materials from local merchants. By accusing us of overpricing, the client has in effect disregarded the time and effort hundreds of people have dedicated in bringing food to their table, an attitude which we find disappointing and abhorrent. The client had mentioned that he had ordered a set menu - our prices range from £10 per person to £27 per person and are clearly marked on all relevant literature.

As for the decor, we redecorated back in February on a limited budget, and we have no intention of replacing the furniture as they were bought from a small firm in China, which made each and every piece by hand.

Finally, once again I am personally insulted that no issues were raised to the staff and that the client had used a public forum to voice their complaint instead of seeking arbitration upon the conclusion of their meal. The staff have a right to know about any issues clients have with their visit, and they make a point of asking at the conclusion of their meal if there are any comments the client wishes to make
