“When you can't take anymore pizza! ”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

We went to this following reviews on TA.

Overall, we were very satisfied with our experience, particularly with the price. Being outside of the main tourist area, it was quieter and cheaper than places we'd eaten previous evenings. Main dishes were between 3 and 5 € and the sidedishes a little less.

The service was nothing amazing but certainly not unfriendly. However, the dishes, rather than being served when the whole order was ready, were served as and when they were ready, meaning we had to wait to start eating - not sure if this is a cultural thing or not.....

I would recommend Man Yi if you're looking for something besides pizza and pasta during your stay.

“Excellent ”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Isn't it funny. You read some of the other reviews that aren't so complimentary (not that there are many about Man Yi, and I think that gives the game away) and you think... How on earth could we have visited the same place. Anyway, we (the family) visited Rome for a week and needed a break from the endless offerings of tomato, pizza and pasta based offerings. I had a little look on the trip advisor app and found this place. It was about a 25 minutes walk away from where we were but after a long day sight seeing but we decided to give it a go regardless after we'd seen a review from some English rugby lads who were singing it's praises. After all those lads can eat. The 5 of us all had a starter, which was there super fast, we had 2 bottles of wine, water, mains, sides, and a mixture of coffee and tea afterwards. The only thing we passed on was desert as we find Chinese deserts as little blah. The whole shebang came to about 63 Euros!! Incredible value, super fast polite service, lovely food, pleasant surrounding and a great all round dining experience. We all commented how much we'd enjoyed it and later that week we all went back again. Guess what, same brilliant service, same incredible price, same tasty food. And listen.... We're from Yorkshire, you know how tight we are. So give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

“Terrible ”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

I had to wait until everyone else had digested their meals before my plate arrived. Either take some snacks to keep you busy during the endless wait or simply ignore. Food wasn't amazing either so you'd be better off elsewhere.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Great service, nice looking place, not having the usual "kitsch" chinese look. The food has a very very good price and it is really good. Not too oily, not too salted, but great. A lit of dishes frim which to choose from. People there are nice and warm. Best nights here n Rome (regarding food, of course)

“Must visit!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a great place. The location looks nice and the food is really tasty. Service is also very good, music is nice, nothing to complain. I recommend mixed fried appetizers as starters.
