“Great Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner at Yuan Ming Yuan and enjoyed a delicious meal. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, with lots of small areas so that all the tables feel intimate. The service was very friendly and accommodating, and very helpful when we asked for vegetarian options. The menu has lots of options, and we will certainly be back to try the dim sums!

“Fantastic and best authentic Chinese Restaurant here in Cork”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

We found this Chinese by its reviews in tripadvisor. And have been back for a second time within a couple of weeks- an easy place to return to! Yuan Ming Yuan staff are extremely helpful and friendly, yet very discreet. The menu has fantastic choices, including a Dim Sum menu. Lovely food, generous offers of replacing rice etc, and very generous helpings! Go if you're hungry!! And good value considering its central city location. And besides its authentic setting, it has a great web site to whet the appetite... Well done ...

“Amazing restaurant”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Highly reccomended, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and the cantonese duck was amazing.
We were also allowed to choose hot and sour soup for early bird which is not on the list, I love if the policy is so flexible.
