I have been about 20 times in the last year just never got around to leaving a review, however based on some of the previous reviews I decided it was only fair to state that every single one of my visits has been excellent, the food is exceptional, service is fast and professional and you don't feel rushed to leave.

Whilst the service is quick and the food comes fast, it is to be expected from what tastes like a Tesco value ready meal. The food is absolutely revolting. It is the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my life. You will be more satisfied with a ready meal which won't cost you as much as this overpriced... More

For ardent followers of my last review of Yang Sing Cathay, 'Pricey and nothing special', I've decided to finally publish a much requested second review, 'Even worse than the last time'. I love chinese food but don't have it often as my son is not a fan. After being nominated taxi driver to the Trafford Centre for the seasonal hell... More

This is my favorite Chinese food for many miles in any direction. I've never had any complaints. Despite the nice decor, It has the ambiance of a works canteen and the robotic, souless, personality free staff add no joy to the experience. Do go for the food though.

After trawling around the shops Christmas shopping this place was a welcome break. The service was quick and very courteous. I had a prawn dish and my boyfriend had a tofu dish (they have a large menu for vegetarians). Both dishes were very tasty. The noodles on the side were delicious and the waiter did silver service and got us... More

I meet with some friends regularly at the Trafford centre to catch up with them over a meal and we recently switched restaurants to the Yang Sing. The food is okay ( not excellent but pretty standard fare) and the service is good so it works well for a catch up.

Well how sad am I?? Having eaten at yang sing in Manchester many times over the last 20 years I thought I'd pop into the one at the Trafford centre whilst Christmas shopping and boy should I not have. We only ordered the lunch menu, myself having chicken soup and Sichuan chicken and my wife chick satay skewers. She only... More
