We went to this restaurant late on a Sunday night having driven the back roads from Dublin. The host was charming and the decor very reminiscent of some of the old Chinese tea houses. Thefood was very good. Not your typical Asian fare with interesting dishes not seen elsewhere as well as some familiar favourites. I can highly recommend the Yuan Ming Yuan.

A large group (almost 30 of us) recently descended on Yuan Ming Yuan and had a super evening. We enjoyed excellent service and food, and the staff were really patient as I am sure we were chaotic to serve....arriving at different times. and all ordering separately. The prices are reasonable and we bagged the remaining dim-sum which were delicious. Will definitely go back when next in Cork, whether on my own for lunch or with a bunch of friends for a late-night meal.
Highly recommended.

Went here for lunch on a cold day. Nice and warm inside and friendly staff. Had a selection of Dim sum at reasonable prices and a pot of Ooong tea for two. Will come back again for dinner.

Wow i have bern to many Chinese but this restaurant is definitely the best for top nosh and value. We had a early bird at 16.95 euros - just excellent and this menu presented a variety of dishes including the sweet and sour chicken served aesthetically beautifully. The rice was great usually I find rice can be of poor quality but this rice was great. The aromatic duck was 20 euros for a half and had a generous portion of pancakes.
The interior is very authentic and the service great.
I really recommend this also there was a group
Og Chinese celebrating a birthday there - a good sign!
