We love this place so much that we keep it a secret, we want to be able to get a table! 😀 we've been eating here for over 10 years but moved out of the area a couple of years ago. This was the first visit since then, it hasn't changed a bit.

Had and awesome time with the family here. The food is simply amazing and I fell in love with the Lobster Noodle. The bar has a nice selection of single malt whiskey so make sure to check it out if you're a whiskey person. The couple who owns this place is very nice and makes you feel at home.

Visited with a group of friends, the food was as good as normal, love the starters and the duck. Would have been 5 stars however the service wasn't the best we waited ages for drinks after ordering them!

Have had take out from here many times so was already happy with how good their food is and they definitely did not disappoint! The all you can eat is excellent, we have more starters than mains and the unlimited duck is perfection! Unlike other places that have a buffet and you never know how long the food has been... More

First time of going to Yan Woo Restaurant. We were there for an 81st Birthday Party (10 people) The service was friendly & welcoming. Food arrived swiftly, with appetising smells, tasted delicious. Staff kept renewing dishes or taking new orders for next course. Table cleared & reset easily & without disturbing our meal. A most enjoyable couple of hours eating... More

Went recently with work colleagues for a team meal. Kind of basic looking restaurant but that's not to be taken away from the excellent food and service. Very good value for money and will definitely be going back.

Yan Woo is no fancy restaurant, let's get that out of the way, but if you are looking for good food cooked with love and value for money then look no further. Ok the location isn't perfect either but when you start tucking into your Nasi goreng or lamb rendang you won't be thinking too much about the location. I... More

I went to this restaurant with 6 work colleagues. My first observation is shared with that of other customers. The decor is basic but you obviously don't eat the decor. More importantly was the restaurant was clean and tidy. We opted for the all you can eat buffet. For our starters we were recommended the sharing platter that had some... More

Was persuaded to have the buy all you can eat option! Sadly was dieting so limited healthier options. Kept wondering how the kitchen looked, Nice food although most deep fried. Usual interior to expect - quite tired and lacking something. Took wine and pal had negotiated corkage, though think they did try to increase this. Authentic dressed staff and good... More
