The Yang Sing is a large, very posh Chinese Restaurant in Manchester's Chinatown, and generally regarded as the best Chinese restaurant in Europe. I have only eaten here once but it was delicious, definitely an experience I will remember! The staff were also very friendly, suggesting a delicious alternative to an item from the set menu.
Favorite Dish: We had the Sample Menu A, which consists of:
Dim Sum - Crispy roll of fish fillet with cheese, prawn envelope with mayonaise dip, pan fried Japanese dumpling with chicken & steamed beef dumpling with ginger and spring onion
Followed by - Steamed scallop with green bean vermicelli topped with garlic & pan fried Ostrich with lemon grass sauce
And then - Chicken Lettuce/Pancake wrap
Main Course - select 2 of Stir fried Grouper fish fillet with seasonal greens, Sizzling beef cantonese style, Braised duckling in spicy yellow bean and black bean sauce casserole, finely chopped loin of pork stir fried with french beans and preserved chinese olive leaves, king prawn with saffron sauce, vegetable fried rice
New Chef Darren Marshall has introduced some fascinating ideas
Favorite Dish: Starter was sun blushed tomato & goats chees risotto
Mains Pan seared duck breast,roast beetroot,glazed carrots
Blueberry frangipane with vanilla pod ice cream
TOTAL FOOD cost was £20.50 plus drinks.
They also have special offers and understand they are about to launch a 2 course meal for the unbelievable price of £5.00
Bearing in mind the total ambience this is incredible value.
GIVE IT A TRY!!
Manchester 's most famous Chinese restaurant survived a devastating fire in 1997 and is now approaching its 30 th birthday. The recent £350,000 refurbishment has added a touch of 1930s Shanghai glamour in which to enjoy classic and innovative Cantonese cooking.
With first Class Service and fantastic food it is certainly worth a visit and although it is not cheap it really is unbeatable!
Their extensive menu offers 60 varieties of dim sum and more than 250 a la carte dishes, There are some great flexible banquets that range from about £29.99 to £39.99 that best reflect the head chef Harry Yeung's unique ever changing scope.
This restaurant was highly recommended by family as having the best Chinese food in the city. Understandably, the restaurant has a good reputation since it has been in existence for thirty years and perhaps it didn't have much competition for the accolade until recently.
So tonight, we booked for a special occassion, since we are visiting relatives in Manchester (we live in the US).
Oh my goodness. This is the first time I have written a resturant review, but I have been moved to put finger to keypad purely driven by the true horror of this meal, which is quite possibly the worst dining experience I have ever paid for. A warning bell should have sounded when we noted that this was the ony restaurant in the whole of Chinatown that did not have a single Chinese person eating in the dining room. The food was disgusting, almost poisonous due to the high MSG content, and the waiting staff clearly unhappy with their lives. Please do not eat here. The owners claim that Yang Sin is the " Best restaurant in the UK."???!!!! What a joke! Pot Noodle tastes better! If this is the best Chinese food in Manchester I feel truly sorry for Mancunians. Try Tai Pan on Upper Brook Street instead. You may find some Chinese people actually eating in there....
Favorite Dish: Absolutely nothing
After walking around Manchester’s Chinatown I noticed the Yang Sing Restaurant, which appeared to be rather busy. My friend and I had to wait for about 10 minutes before being seated, but we had to order a cool tiger beer each. The table was laid out to perfection, and we opted for the £40 meal for two option. The courses appeared in turn and by the last and 5th we was quite full and satisfied with the wonderful and delightful dishes. The service was brilliant, and the beer was just right. 10 out of 10 for this Chinese Restaurant...
Favorite Dish: Meal for Two at £40
The most famous Chinese restaurant in England... in Europe?
We wanted to do it, but were disappointed.
The food is good, ok, and it's nice when they ask you your usual and make you a surprise menu to your taste.
But when there is the most silliest of the loudest hen party going on behind your back, you don't appreciate the food.
It's probably too big and too famous.
We prefer our EXCELLENT local Chinese where the food is great and we feel at home... secret for now, I may tell you one day...
This place gets rave reviews everywhere and is considered to be the best Chinese restaurant in the UK (even Michelin says so). Having eaten some very bland Chinese food at the Top Wok around the corner just the day before, i decided not to take any risks and follow the hype. And what can i say? This place deserves every praise and all superlatives; i've eaten Dim Sum in Hongkong, Bangkok and San Francisco, but what they serve here are simply the best ones i've ever had. And if that wasn't enough, i found the prices incredibly reasonable by English standards, most dim sum dishes cost between 2.80 and 3.40 and that's great value.
The atmosphere is nothing to write home about but quite authentically Chinese, a huge dining hall, very busy with some typical round tables for large groups. The service was surprisingly good considering how busy it was.
I haven't tried any of the regular dishes but they looked delicious, as well. Mind you that Dim Sum are only served until 3pm.
Favorite Dish: I had 5 different kinds of Dim Sum, all of which were gorgeous, unfortunately i can't remember the exact names, but i don't think you can go wrong here, no matter what you order.
This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the UK, if not the best. The staff are fantastic, and will help you decide what it is you are looking for. The best advice I can give, though, is to come up with a price, and ask them to bring you food to that price, for example, we say can you bring us loads of dim sum & starters, with, say, one main course, and avoiding (whatever it is that you might wish to avoid, for allergy reasons, or whatever), and they will bring you a selection that is varied and wonderful to taste, (including many dishes not on the menu). You can't beat it
Favorite Dish: Very hard to say!
The Little Yang Sing is an offshoot of the famous and highly regarded Yang Sing. Its location in George Street is actually where the Yang Sing itself started out before it moved to its present location on Princess Street. It's a classy-looking place, fairly recently refurbished with dragon motifs and red and cream decor. It has the same reputation for quality food as the Yang Sing, and the service is very good, even if they are a little over-zealous topping up your wine. It's very relaxed, warm, and friendly, with staff who seem genuinely happy to be serving.
Favorite Dish: We went with set banquet A - four dim sum starters each, followed by aromatic foil-wrapped chicken, then a middle course of duck in peaches cracker and fish turnover, followed by our choice of main courses - chicken in whole black bean sauce and sliced beef fillet in black pepper source. And it was all *fantastic*. We couldn't finish our main courses, so took what was left home in doggie-bags.
The restaurant has lovely decour, the staff are friendly and polite.
I went for a christmas do and the food was gorgeous so if you go at anouther time I believe it will be even better.
Favorite Dish: Dim Sum and sweet and sour chicken.
IF U WANT 2 HAVE THE BEST CHINESE CUISINE THEN THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE TO GO THAN THIS. DURING THE DAY THERE IS A SET MENU FOR 9.50ý BUT EXCEPT TO PAY TWICE THAT IN THE EVENING.
