I had a reserved table for four to dine early evening, I also emailed this restaurant to double check that there was not a specific dress code (just in case) but never received a reply. We arrived a touch early which was not a problem and were seated straight away. We ordered our drinks and chose the Set Dinner A... More

Popped in here on a Wednesday evening. It was quite quiet, one big group but they were seated away from the other guests. Service was excellent, very attentive and the food was prepared quickly and very very fresh. We opted for the 2 person menu and then some extra dim sum. Everything was well flavoured and you could tell that... More

What a lovely place to dine, nice surroundings with friendly staff, the food is gorgeous and plenty of choice, they have the added bonus of fabulous cocktails and a great selection I will be making my way through the menu😆 The staff are very friendly and attentive. I cannot recommend highly enough

I have been to this restaurant before and found the food and service to be excellent and this time was no different. The food was again spot on and cooked to perfection and the service was a little slower than last time but not bad at all. Recommended

I had wanted to go and have cheap pub food but my friend dragged me kicking and screaming to Chung Ying's and afterwards I was really glad she did! For a city centre restaurant I was expecting high prices and average food, but I was really surprised and pleased. The menu is not that large but there is quite a... More

There were 7 of us and we arrived at different times, the guys who got there first were allowed to open up the tab and were made to feel really welcome. The food that was served was really nice and we had a constant stream of really great food. The food was exactly what you’d want, flavoursome and cooked well.... More

Ate here last night and was pleasantly surprised. Have used much older sister restaurant in China Town and wasn't very impressed so decided to try this much more upmarket venue. It's in a beautiful old building in a quiet area of town. Decor good. Music a little too loud. Service first class, we did eat early so could not comment... More
