“ghastly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a cheap and nasty Chinese buffet geared at greedy people who think the word' buffet' means competition. The bell rings, people rush to the start line, plates are filled to the brim, then they return return to their seats to feast on whatever concoction of MSG they have combined. The process is then repeated until they either collapse in a pile of their own vomit and feces or say 'weve had enuf am full up ken'
Its an absolute free for all, the food is rancid, tubs of miserable sickly looking and tasting food, the classic pork ribs(pork my backside) reheated rice and noodles. Im sure even an emaciated Ethiopian wouldn't drop his unicef rice package for this muck. The only saving grace was the battered bananas which were actually quite nice and the staff were also pleasant enough but in all honesty you are better with a jar of uncle Ben's than coming here.

“FREEEEEZING”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Walked in on a Sunday afternoon to expect a warm cosy reception and to waddle out stuffed!.....Not at the Yang Sing! Everyone else in the restaurant had their winter coats on? inside? Strange? We were showed to our table which felt like a big block of ice. Whilst chittering away we got our food... average i would say, but unfortuntaly the plates, cutlery and the table were the same tempeture as outside (where it was snowing) our food was soon cold and inedible. We complained twice, eventually we were moved to a table near a heater. The heater was some ancient banger that blew out air....oh no, not hot air, just air. Another couple complained aswell. The manger give some strange excuse that the heating had just been fixed, the couple also complaining said that he had told them this last year. We left. Would not recommend returning till about June if you want a hot meal and don't have your thermals on.

“Good grub”

Excellent value for money, always plenty to choose form. Staff a bit keen to take your plate away but always very pleasant.

“Poor reputation in the area but I don't really know why”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Yang Sing has a local reputation of being like a bushtucker trial, but we've got takeaway there a couple of times and had no problems at all. Food was lovely. We'll certainly be going back.
