“Average and the worst decorating ever”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

It seems odd to be critical about a restaurant that I have visited a dozen times but it needs to be put in context given the over generous reviews about Yangs
Barry is Wales' largest town and I bet the only town in Britain of it's size without a cinema,DIY superstore and anything resembling a very good restaurant.
With the demise of Egerton Gray , the reason I go here is because the choice is so limited.
On entry you immediately spot that the red paintwork is liberally splashed with white paint. You then enter the restaurant and in the reception area you are greeted by loads of take away delivery bags. On perusal of the decor in general,paint is splashed everywhere and I have noted a small scruffy side table outside the gents which is just covered in paint, serves no purpose and has been there for years! The toilets look ok but on closer examination are dirty.
The food is not good , it is just good value . The starters with the exception of spare ribs which are very fatty are pretty good The Crispy Duck is just very dry and has not gone through the normal cooking process to get it right.
The generously portioned main courses are in general very bland .
This restaurant is run on a shoestring of staff and is often on the cold side one waitress Lilly who is a delight has to run off and answer the telephone for take away orders.
I would not question that this is the second most popular restaurant because the area is severely lacking in decent places to eat. I note that there is no number one restaurant in Barry on Trip Adviser and whilst this is an obvious mistake,is it?

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Been going to this restaurant regularly for a couple years now.
GREAT food, service & price. They offer a different style of all you eat, where they cook the food and bring it to your table, rather than shoving it all into buffet carts!

“Best Chinese in Barry by far.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Have used this restaurant for many years.always had excellent food.best in Barry by far.my wife and use this place to eat on average every week.we always choose the freshly cooked menu to order as much as we like.we have always been extremely satisfied with the quality and taste of the food.lilly the owner is very friendly and attentive.a couple of minor gripes.we tend to go early weekday evenings as the service can be a bit slow if the place is busy.especially on sat nights.also paper napkins which are one of my pet hates but Lilly will gladly give you extra if you ask.but considering the value for money I suppose it's an easier option for them.we rate this place so highly I thought twice about writing this review in case it becomes too popular and the status quo changes but if you love Chinese food and have only tried some of the others in the area I would recommend this restaurant as a cut above the rest.
