After a bit of lazy Google research in order to decide which Chinese restaurant to go to this evening, Chung Ying Central seemed to rate fairly highly amongst fellow Trip Advisor reviewers. I’m not sure whether these people have ever had a quality Chinese meal...More

My partner had been at a conference on Bank Holiday Monday and I was transferring through Birmingham on trains and we needed somewhere to eat before going home. Google recommended Chung Ying as a good place to eat and we're very glad we followed that...More

Excellent yuk sum starter and reasonable service. However main courses particularly the sea bass were a little disappointing compared to other Chinese restaurants that I have visited lately.

I recently visited here on the weekend. I could not find fault with anything, the food was amazing as was the service. The menu has a wide variety of food which if the rest is cooked like mine was I’m sure will be excellent. If...More

Yes...not cheap but for a city centre restaurant acceptable. The food is from a simple menu. The service is excellent..food quality and presentation fantastic. Quick beer and lunch achievable with time to spare to compliment the staff

Food very good service extremely good but was stunned when we were charged £8 for two soda waters with a dash of lime. Now that was shocking!

It wasn’t cheap but it was good. Really nice food. Had to move seats as cold draft but they handled that well and sorted us out a warmer spot. The snow was bad that night. Food excellent and drinks good too. Would go to again...More
