Came here for Dim Sum. Most portions were priced at £2.90 each which is ridiculously cheap, normally I pay at least a fiver. However, if you are looking for a fancy restaurant with polite servers then this will be the wrong place for you. Service here is very Chinese, they are there to put your food on the table and...

Dim sum was delicious and value for money. It was one of the cheaper restaurants we found in Chinatown for Dim sum. Service wouldn't be one of their strengths though so don't expect too much.

Price is very good. Service was good but waiting at the door and having other groups go before us was balls. Got 2 lobsters for 23£ each they tasted different which was strange but still decent none the less.

Absolutely wonderful food we enjoyed crispy duck with pancakes, beef fried rice and pork chow mein. The food was very tasty and the quality seems better than other restaurants although the one thing that lets them down is the fact that they don't take the time to make you feel welcome.

Chose Young Cheng Chinese having seen the Tripadvisor sign posted on the door. We were welcomed and seated and then waited and waited. Eventually our order was taken and we waited for our first course. Four young Chinese gents came in and were seated at the table next to us. They were immediately offered different menu, their order was taken... More

Not the best in town but definitely a good choice. Salt and pepper squid was amazing. Dim Sum also very good. Chinese veg was a little undercooked. Otherwise a good meal and value.

Sat upstairs and ordered Jasmine tea, dim sum and waited for our friend to arrive. We weren't rushed which was nice. Had honey lemon chicken, fun malayan flat noodles, pork in a spicy sauce and king prawn sechzuan. All lovely. Had to try morning glory (it was a girls night out after all). Turned out to be a type of... More

I visit them yesterday, very terrible experience. The staff is rude, claim they are not 5 star restaurant, do not expect service. On the bill, they charge for services. Complain to a manager, got no results. When you get in, you feel you are not welcome immediately. Just want to a quick meal and leave. They asked me to share... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
