Manchester’s Chinatown is rightly famous, and regarded as one of the best in Europe. The Little Yang Sing – on George Street, just a Peking Duck’s chuck from the Chinese Arch – is one of the big names in Chinatown, and it’s easy to see why. With a huge dim sum menu, varied banquets to suit all sizes and budgets and a solid selection of Cantonese and Chinese favourites, you’ll need to book a table in advance to make sure of getting into this city centre standout.
Dear customers, to book a table on Friday after 6pm, Saturday and Sunday, please contact the restaurant directly.
With as many and as varied an array of Chinese restaurants as there are in Manchester’s Chinatown, one has to be special to stand out. Little Yang Sing, in the heart of the city centre on George Street, just moments from the Chinese Arch and Portland Street, has been ploughing a furrow for exceptional Cantonese food for years, and continues to serve up food that takes the breath away. Diners can choose from their menu of dim sum, meat and vegetarian dishes, Peking Duck and seafood specialities, or even better, combine them all in one of their sharing banquets.
Don’t let the name fool you: Little Yang Sing is by no means a hole-in-the-wall joint. It is little, but only compared to proprietor Warren Yeung’s other family restaurant, the five-storey Chinatown behemoth of the Yang Sing. The Chinese flavours are huge though, with house specialities such as beef in black pepper sauce and and chicken with lemon and honey keeping the punters of Manchester coming back to George Street for more. This is a city centre lunch hotspot, so make sure you book your table: it isn’t as little the name suggests, but it certainly does fill up!
Excellent food and service. Really pleasant staff. My friend and I are Vegan and there was an incredible veggie/Vegan menu. Will definitely be going back.
Our party of 15 went to the Little Yang Sing after searching the web for a good Chinese restaurant. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, our drink orders were taken and the staff were very attentive all evening , going through our menu choices at the start of the meal and keeping us supplied with more drinks during the meal. The food was excellent and our team this morning are all saying how much they enjoyed the meal last night. It was the first visit to the Little Yang Sing for me, but it will certainly not be my last.
The service was pleasant and friendly. The food was excellent. It also looks a lot smarter after the refurbishment. Was a lot warmer than previous visits and it was cold outside.
First time at the Little Yang Sing. The Interior was clean and simple, food was wonderful, staff efficient and attentive. I would definitely visit again.
We had a great time at Little Yang Sing, the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely meal. The food was lovely and the meals came in a timely manner and the order was all correct. They sang 'happy bitthday' to my niece and gave her ice cream which was lovely. They didn't rush us which was good as it was the last night of my sisters family visit from the USA, so we could chat & relax. Thanks for a great meal.
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to Little Yang Sing. It’s been a while since we have been to this Chinese restaurant and they have certainly improved the surroundings - much more modern. The food especially the dim sums were still if the best. Definitely will go back
Good food, rich menu, relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff. In particular I liked the BBQ roasted Duck in plum sauce and the seafood Trio. Delicious even the crispy chilli beef. Unique note: The Chinese beer (I do not remember the brand) did not hit me in particular, I tasted more good brands. I recommend this restaurant to friends and I will return.
Superb meal served with a smile. As usual we cannot fault the Little Yang Sing. Everything was as it should be in a quality restaurant.
Excellent restaurant. Lots of choice on the menu and the food was delicious and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Staff didn't try and hurry us once we had finished our meal. Excellent customer service and we will definitely be going again.
We have been long standing clients of LYS. However the last time we visited felt that some dishes were expensive for what they were. Eg £14 plus the price of rise for a King Prawn dish.... They have improve on the service and we are still very fond of them but we will have to think again next time we want to go there....
