“Best meal all week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

After a quite mediocre week of average food at a nearby Torquay hotel I found this quite charming resteraunt on Trip Advisor
The warmth of welcome and quality of service was outstanding ,however the food was exceptional only fault I found was the size of the portions which were massive
Anyone going please go hungry as you will leave more than satisfied

“Wasn`t expecting this amount of food for just 2 of us”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

well what a surprise food was very nice and very nicely presented and tasted lovely the portions were very large when the starters came out I thought we had ordered a feast but we slowly got through the starters and was great after a ciggy break we continued with the main course I have never seen so many king prawns in a prawn curry was excellent all dishes were to the same standard witch was brill would go again and again if it was local to me . Staff were very patient as im a pretty fussy eater but they got the food order bang on as we asked well done all.

“Now this is what a Chinese Restaurant Should be like”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Stayed at Gleneagles Hotel and walked down into town and came across Yum Sing went in on the off chance of a table and the staff were very accomadating, very proffesional, attentive and friendly. The meal portions were huge and the food was excellent and good value, although not in the centre of the town worth every effort to go there.

Beautiful food, nice atmosphere and attentive staff. Such huge portions that it's worth the money. Me and my family had a great evening.

“Always reliable.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Although I do not visit the restaurant very often I have had many a takeaway and have always been extremely happy by my choice. It's difficult to choose a favourite from the menu, especially as it is so varied. I always want to try something new and up to now I have yet to be disappointed by any new venture. Saying that, I am often drawn back to the crispy beef and perhaps one of their range of spare rib choices (neither fail to please). Other stand-outs include - yuk sung - Cantonese beef - salt and pepper king prawns - how much space have I got???? I'll be back.
