Food here was awful, Westernised Chinese food and over priced. Service was disgraceful, we waited 1 hour between courses and has to ask several times for the tea we ordered. I do not recommend this place.

I wish we had read recent TripAdvisor reviews of the Yang Sing before we booked it, and not based our choice on our previous past experience, which had been good...... this place has lost any reputation it once had as one of the better restaurants in Manchester's China Town.

The food was mediocre, over-priced, with small portions and poor service.

We ordered a 4 course banquet, where the main course was brought to the table well before we'd finished the last. When asked why this was, we were told 'sorry, but the chef wants to go home early'.

When presented with a bill of a near 3 figure sum, we stated we had issues with the meal and refused to pay the service charge..... the waiter didn't even ask why, they just walked away and deducted it from the bill as if this was a common occurrence and expected it to happen.

Avoid the place and go somewhere else; we will next time, and read up on TripAdvisor reviews before we book.

I had friends visiting from London and thought we would go to a nice Chinese restaurant. Big mistake.

Pro's:

The starters were above average and pleasant

Con's:

1 hour wait between starters and main course
The beef in the main was chewy/fatty/inedible
We ordered noodles with the mains that did not arrive
We had to ask twice for Chinese tea
Despite repeated complaints about the slow service, it did not improve

There were 4 of us and we ordered the £30 banquet, along with a bottle of wine and other drinks. It was not cheap, the service was atrocious and it blighted an otherwise perfect weekend for my friends. Avoid at all costs, I have never experienced service like it.

We were looking forward to this and it was such a bad experience. We chose the £42 each banquet for 4 - on to find layer that there was no scallops and offered lamb instead and no sea bass. This changed to whitebait and Turbot. But the Turbot never arrived despite staff saying it was coming. lots of different staff served us but all chaotic - no plates and no Turbot!
Starters ok but very poor fatty ribs and tasteless whitebait (batter only) and chicken. Just gave up waiting for last course and desert. Shambles really. Will not return.

Dirty reception area and stairs.
Unsmiling senior staff. Younger staff pleasant.
Food poor but expensive.
Chairs need replacing as they appear to have been damaged and are in bad condition.
To cap it all they charged a 10% service charge without any prior notification.
No further visit planned.
In 1995 or there about that time when working I accompanied many Chinese nationals from Guanzou, Nanhai and Jiangmen, who were training here in the UK. We all enjoyed the experiences. I would be embarrassed if I had to bring them here now.
A bad show with room for a big change.
