Myself and my mum visited the restaurant last night and although the food was excellent we were left really disappointed by the service we received. We waited ages for our mains to arrive because the chef forgot about us (one of the wait staff admitted this to us) and all we were offered by way of an apology was a... More

Having spent most of the morning looking for shoes for my wife, we wandered into the section of the Trafford Centre labelled "China Town". We found the Yang Sing Cathay and were impressed with the menu - 2 course lunch for £9.99 each. We were welcomed warmly, shown to a table and served quickly and efficiently. We did order china...

The front of house manager was grumpy and uninviting , the rest of the staff however were friendly and the service was good. We had limited choice however as the restaurant closed at 8pm and we weren't aware of this before we sat down and were ready to order. The food was average .

Nice venue, good service just not sure what meat we were eating. Chicken satay tasted like pork. Chicken breast in lemon.....the chicken must have been the size of an emu the breast filled the plate. Fillet steak in chilli .....bit tough and lots of it so doubt it was fillet. Overall a pleasent meal.

We visited on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was reasonably busy but not full. The food was good although the service was not as good as it should be - we had to wait quite a while for some things we ordered. I thought the prices were steep for a Chinese restaurant.

Visited recently for a friends birthday. At first look at the menu I thought it was a little on the expensive side for Chinese! However once it arrived the portions were massive and the food was full of flavour so you don't mind paying the prices! The staff are lovely and made my friends birthday special by bringing out a...

I have walked this restaurant so many times during previous shopping trips to the Trafford Centre and wondered what it was like. Now I wonder why we've never been here before.....it was fab! We were seated straight away and whilst it was busy our drinks order followed quickly after whilst we perused the menu. We went for the set menu... More

The Peking ribs are finger licking good. War tips are little parcels of delight. Szechuan prawns are out of this world.
