We had a fine dinner last night at Lam & Yin. Unfortunately our waiter thought it was funny to imitate my accent as a native English speaker speaking Dutch. Flemings constantly complain that "vreemdlingen" don't try to integrate, but then laugh at you when you do try. I don't appreciate this kind of treatment, especially not when I am paying... More

The menu card isn't that extensive, but the choices offered are very tasteful. The staff was very attentive. Prices are a bit on the high side, but that's to be expected with one Michelin star. Definitely worth trying out.

Lam & Yin truly defines the preconceptions about Chinese cuisine. What you get here are fresh ingredients, combined with great care into fantastic dishes inspired by the Chinese cuisine. No wonder this small restaurant with the open kitchen got a Michelin star! The menu was presented in two ways: written on an hand fan or you could also consult an... More

I was a little disappointed. As a Michelin-starred restaurant I was expecting something a bit extra in my food experience. However, departing from my expectation the food was good and the service polite and efficient. I was not overly impressed with the restaurant itself; it seemed rather dark. Prices are similar in comparison to other prices of 'good' restaurants in... More

I was able to secure a table on my second visit to Lam & Yin. Glad I did! Had the lamb in Sechuan sauce and a few glasses of sweet and spicy German wine. Very attentive service.

Had been thinking of visiting this restaurant for quite a while, but as reservations cannot be made online, it took us a while to call at the right time :-) The restaurant is easy to find, in old town Antwerp. We were a bit early, but were greeted right away, and led to our table to have apero first. Good... More

This Restaurant is offering a traditinal Chinese cuisine. And Yes Some people may not like the simple flavoured diches, its a pure taste with soya Oil. Service is good, sitting could Be more spacious. The menu is honestly balanced but it could a little bigger, not so many to choose from. Service tradional tea but nothing really comes with it......

One understands how this restaurant got its star: this is a quiet, modern, efficently run place with the emphasis on quality of food and quality of service. (The only thing I did not like was the chinese music in the background but that is a personal preference). The menu is tiny, with almost nothing to remind you of the average... More

Small and friendly. limited menu but really very good quality and service. Wine list is exceptional value. This is the kind of place you would go if you don't want to be in the main tourist area.
