Ate here 12th November, Sunday at 1700. Excellent food with good service. Had set meal for two, and could see it cooked in front of you. Highly recommended. A lot of customers were of eastern origin so should tell you it's good

The food in Yim Wah is tasty and you can see the chef cooking the food from your table! (Depending where you sit). I recommend the duck and roast pork with rice and the beef Ho Fan noodles!
