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!
Great service, great ambience and food to die for. It was the best Chinese we have ever had. Perfect end to a perfect day in Manchester.
