About Little Yang Sing
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!
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.
Beautiful food. Very welcoming and helpful staff that couldnt do enough for us. The restaurant was lvoely and clean. We will be returning :) Thank you
Went with a party of 12 people and although it was a Tuesday night and relatively quiet, the restaurant served us very well. They helped with menu suggestions and the service was excellent. Would definitely visit again - Thanks
The Staff are very welcoming on arrival. The food and menu choice Is excellent and the service was very good. The atmosphere is friendly and good.
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.
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....
The restaurant was well laid and with an atmosphere that fitted our visit. They had a special Valentines menu which was well thought out. The staff were warm and welcoming and professional throughout. The food was excellent and we'll be returning!
We enjoyed an excellent lunch from the a la carte menu; dim sum, duck then mains. Everything was delicious, especially the bean curd with minced pork in chili sauce! Service was friendly and very attentive so we will definitely return.
Excellent service with a smile from booking via the Internet to leaving. The food was delicious and the restaurant immaculate. Highly recommended, we will certainly eat there again but maybe order fewer dishes as the portions are quite generous.
We had such a lovely evening celebrating a birthday. The food was absolutely delicious, beautifully prepared and presented and the staff were all extremely efficient, very pleasant, courteous and helpful - all creating a wonderful overall ambience.
Fantastic service and super food - can't wait to be back. Christmas has come to Chinatown - thanks for a memorable evening - dim sum platter and mains so tasty
Definitely the best Chinese food I've had in Manchester. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is very authentic. The fried won tons and barbecued pork are NOT to be missed!
Great food and excellent service. The set menu was very good value and in particular the Peking duck was amazing. We would recommend if you are in manchester and want Cantonese god to go here.
Great food and great service provided by the restaurant and was also good value for the lunch time menu that was on offer. I would definitely go back.
A lovely evening. Attentive staff and excellent food. The resaurant is very well set out and we had a really good table. We would certainly go again.
Excellent food, and good service. We were impressed by the presentation, and variety of dishes on offer. The staff were helpful and advised where necessary. Recommended.
Really good experience, enjoyed the food, recommend the lemon and honey chicken too. Best I've ever tasted. great buzz about the place too. Will be returning.
Very friendly staff and superb food. I've been there a lot over the years and the standard of service and food improves all the time
Nice food, but on the higher price side for a Chinese restaurant. Service was good, but wine choice was not available and this was on a Friday night at 8pm!
Food was delicious, and the staff were attentive and friendly. It's one of our favourite places to eat in China town! Highly recommend to all.
Excellent food and great service good choice on menu my favourite restaurant by far we be going back there soon value for money thank you
Always busy, friendly restaurant, quick service, typical chinese menu, and always good value, always enjoy visiting, the atmosphere is always buzzing and the owners care about their patrons.
It wasn't as busy as we had expected so a reservation was not, perhaps, necessary (17:45 on a Tuesday). Great food served quickly to meet out theatre commitment.
Excellent food, very authentic. Felt a little rushed when ordering though. Could have been advised better as the portions are very large and we ordered far too much.
The atmosphere was really nice and comfortable, the food was delicious and had lots to choose from. The staff were also really nice, we would comeback again.
the food was excellent, just as on previous visits, and the decor is very smart. The service, however, was very slow - we had to wait 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive.
It was a bit hectic in there. Food was pretty good. Service was fine. Good veggie choices on the menu. We will definitely go back again.
The food is always delicious. As well, the service is great and you feel very welcomed. The staff is very friendly and know what to do.
Meal was good if a little bit pricey but service could have been a bit quicker we thought but overall worthy of a return visit.
Quick and efficient service, table kept although we arrived late. Food was of expected standard, the wine we ordered was very good with the meal.
Lovely restaurant. Food was good, and staff attentive, but we won't be returning. There were five of us dining, but we felt the 10% service charge of £18.81 was excessive. That's the price of another main course.
Very good service and lovely food will certainly be visiting again
Food good but service absolutely appalling. Staff unfriendly and main course took almost 1 hour to arrive. When challenged about this supervisor was rude and argumentative. So much so that we insisted that the 10% service charge be removed from the bill. Won't be back - plenty more restaurants to choose from!
