A group of us went to Yum Sing on Thursday evening for the buffet. Very friendly service and very enjoyable food... I especially liked the prawn toast.

Can't praise this place enough. We went on a Monday night to sample the buffet and it didn't disappoint. We had various starters including chicken and sweet corn soup, the best prawn toast ever, with a whole prawn sat in the middle, and spring rolls all of which were delicious. The choice then was fantastic! I couldn't decide so I... More

Arrived for evening meal 7.00.p.m on spec. Lovely decor, friendly helpful British staff, prompt service. Ordered buffet meal for two, lots of choice, some of the best Chinese food we've had. We hadn't had any lunch so were famished, but we just couldn't eat it all! Great value and very highly recommended.

This is the best chinese we have ever had. Everything from the chicken and sweet corn soup to chicken chow mein is amazing. The food is made with excellent quality produce. The king prawn toast is to die for. It has a full king prawn in it rather than just flavouring that other local chineses do. The spring rolls are... More

The staff at Yum Sing are incredible, they could not be better hosts if they tried. We had a large group booking for a family get together and each ordered the buffet. The food was brought to the table and served to us in huge platters, with just the right amount of attentiveness. One of our guests has very specific... More

Came here for my sisters 40th on Valentine's Day. Overall there were 20 of us including 12 children! So you can imagine with the number of us, let alone it being busy with being Valentine's Day eve I didn't envy the task at hands for the chefs! Some of us went for banquets and some of the children had certain... More

I was a little tentative as Chinese has been off the menu for some years, I prefer Indian for more flavour, Chinese being very bland. This restaurant has changed that. I have eaten here twice within a month so a bit of a turn around. Good tasty and plentiful food, great service and nice surroundings. Only comment I would make... More

A pit stop in Torquay and unsurprisingly wanted some Chinese food. Alas, a look at Tripadvisor and I had this place in my scopes. The buffet is small, which has its disadvantages as there is less choice that many others i've been to have offered BUT of course, this meant food was replenished at a good rate and was hot... More

My partner and I decided that a Chinese meal would be a good idea so I thought I'd take her to my local and well regarded restaurant the Yum Sing. I've been going there -albeit irregularly- for nearly 20 years and until now have never been disappointed. Service was great ,the atmosphere was great .....but the food not so great.... More

We only ever get our Chinese from here and by far it's the best in Torquay but tonight our takeaway was dissapointing. 1) our duck was over cooked as it was dry and there were sharp crispy bits. 2) my sweet and sour pork and husbands crispy chicken peking style sauces were so acidy we couldn't eat it all, it...
