Welcome to


Our Story

After an exacting lock-down for us all, our menu continues as usual based on the elements of Ying and Yang.

Yming was established on 10th June 1986 as MING. After the departure of the other partners one year later CHRISTINE carried on and introduced a completely new menu featuring different regional dishes , e.g. Ta Tsai Mi , a lean lamb dish, Dongan Chicken etc. not only the usual sweet and sour pork and beef in black bean sauce. Although The ingredients and the cooking remain traditional, of course new dishes are introduced from time to time.

To her astonishment a simple dish of Cauliflower Yming style is on demand all the time. She introduced it as she noticed that cauliflower is not the most popular vegetable.

For those of you who already know Chinese food will make up your own minds. For those who don’t’ we will be happy to help you choose.

Bon Appetite!

Customers reviews

“William (the maitre d’) always has a warm welcome” at this “long-term favourite”: a Soho “oasis” whose “calm and friendly” atmosphere (“without the feeling we need to rush and free the table”) provides a quiet-but-stark contrast with the frenzy of Chinatown a couple of blocks south. Foodwise “it attempts nothing new or extraordinary – just good Chinese cooking that’s always wholesome and satisfying”, with “decent wine at un-greedy prices”.
Little gem in china town Fabulous restaurant in soho, great food, good menu and reasonable. Nicely decorated and really friendly accommodating staff. Well worth a visit. Maybe worth booking as is popular.
The finish at this Chinese restaurant just off Shaftesbury Avenue suggests it's trying to do something a little more refined than many of its Chinatown brethren. The royal-blue and aquamarine interior is smartly dressed European-style, with white linen and wine glasses. The menu is mainly Cantonese, with a few eclectic regional dishes added. That means a menu ranging from sesame prawn toast, dry-spiced spare ribs and soft-shell crab to wonton soups, shredded duck with ginger, Mongolian lamb, Sichuan prawns and empress beef, slow-cooked with herbs, spices and a hint of star anise. Pancake wraps prove popular. Keep an eye out for good-value set menus, specials and even dishes created especially for loyal customers.
