We looked this restaurant up on tripadvisor whilst in Torquay. We had all you can eat buffet.
Usually at these buffets the food is mediocre, but this Chinese food was amazing.
The vegetable were fresh and crunchy.
All the dishes tasted freshly cooked and lots of ingredients in all.
My only moan would be the prawn toasts were a bit hard as they were being kept warm, but in saying that they tasted nice but a bit crunchy.

Lovely welcome, lovely restaurant we ordered our meals and waited over an hour for our pancake rolls and soup. Then quite a while for a main. Nice food but had to wait too long for it :/

The food is decent enough service was excellent but in my opinion very pricey for what it was. Good selection of food only from the menu the buffet doesn't have much choice to avoid that.

After looking around at the local places to eat, we decided to go for chinese food we came across yum sing and decided to give it a try. First impressions were good, we were greeted very curtiously, we were shown to our table, the decor is very good, very clean, nice mood lighting all the trimings so we thought. We were then shown into another room were the buffet food was located, dishes were explained, we returned to our table ordered drinks an then returned to the buffet to begine our meal, the choice of starters was poor no ribbs, no yuk sung, no chicken wings, no chicken satay, prawn toast, spring rolls and prawn crackers, that was the sum of their starters. Only three main choices, with noodles or fried rice.we made our limited choices returned to our table only to find that the food was cold, the staff were made aware of this, very apologetic, the food was removed and returned a few minutes later piping hot we were told, sorry but the food was not piping hot, we decided to vacat the restaurant without finishing our food, we voiced our opinion and our dissatisfaction and left. We are not saying that this is their regular standard of food preparation, but on this occasion they dropped the ball, needless to say that this restaurant is definitely not on our return list.

Ordered a takeaway at 7.30pm on a Saturday night and was able to pick up the food 45 minutes after. Very nice inside and staff were very friendly and attentive. Had to wait inside for only a short time for our food to be brought to us (was quite a large order). Food was bland and the portion sizes were quite small for the money paid. Overall wasn't bad.
