This restuarant is part of the strip of eateries at the Boardwalk casino complex and as such caters for the captive revellers. From the outset, the PA system along the walkways is so loud that you cannot have a conversation without raising your voice to be heard. Sadly this carries into the restaurants as well. The food is average at... More

This review won't even do the place justice. My boyfriend and I looked at the reviews on here and then stumbled across it by chance and thank god we did. Probably one of the best Chinese's we've ever had. Amazing staff and even better tasting food. What more could you want?! Super helpful and even notified us that we were... More

As soon as you walk into the restaurant you are greeted like an old friend! The owners and staff are friendly and professional. If you're not sure what to order they're more thank willing to make a recommendation. I've never been disappointed. I lived in Beijing for two years and often crave authentic Chinese food! Yi Pin is my #1... More

We decided to take a stroll through the boardwalk on a Saturday night. We hadn't eaten supper yet so we thought we should try Yi Pin. What awesome service and friendly staff.... being our first time at this restaurant, our waitress was kind enough to explain the menu to us. We also met Joe, who was just as welcoming and... More

This is by far the most Chinese restuarant in PE. The friendly smiles and chat Joe gives makes you feel at home and welcome, not even to mention their great food. Would reccommend this restuarant to any individual that enjoys Chinese food.

The duck spring rolls were delicious, the sushi was fresh and different to the usual offering and my pork with sweet bean sauce was absolutely delicious - we even returned here on a Monday a week later, only to find it closed, very disappointing !!

It was a first time visit, but really worthwhile. We had a friendly welcome and the service was brisk. We had a couple of different dishes and everything was well prepared and very tasty. I enjoyed the sizzling beef with black bean sauce very much. I for sure, will visit them again.

The man and I had a lovely date night at Yi Pin last night. The atmosphere was really lovely and the food really great. The waitress happily helped us with recommendations which turned out to be scrumptious :) The only small complaint I have is that the portion sizes are so big! I would have liked to be able to...

Arrived on a tour and even though Joe and his wife knew we were only here for one day we were treated as if we were regulars. Super friendly service with a smile. All the staff were very welcoming - pity we have to move on or we would certainly be back to try more of the menu!
