A great favourite as we live locally, Yimwah's service is as prompt as their food is delicious. Whilst we often eat there as a couple, sometime ago I took a colleague there whom I meet frequently - and now she cannot eat there with me often enough. The staff for their part have noticed our visits and now produce jasmine... More

This restaurant does really high-quality food, with a big range of choice. I've been many times and have never been disappointed. Really nice staff also!

We went with our 19-month old daughter after spending a few hours in Cambridge. They didn't have highchairs but they offered a booster chair for daughter. The booster chair did not have straps to secure to the dining chair nor harness straps to secure my daughter! I had to watch my daughter every second during my meal to avoid nasty... More

I came to get something for lunch. It was nearly 20 minutes of waiting for a table before someone would stop and talk to me. I was told to leave because they were fully booked. It would have been much more helpful to be told that 15 minutes earlier.

Just as well we arrived very early on a Saturday evening. At around 5 p.m. only a few tables were occupied. By the time we left the place was packed with couples, many of them young, possibly students, families, and one or two solo diners. We chose it on the basis of recent TripAdvisor reviews and the Certificate of Excellence... More

Everything delicious. Over ordered as usual but they kindly offered to pack up left overs without us needing to ask.

I absolutely recommend this restaurant, we had a great evening meal. The starters - prawns were crispy and flavour was great with chili. I am not a great fan of squid but I tasted a few - they were fried nicely and delicious. The portions are a good size and the beef brisket curry with rice was a delight.

I had the vegetarian noodle and crispy aromatic duck. The restaurant was crowded with fellow Asians during lunch, and so I thought the food ought to be good. The vegetarian noodle was not too bad, but the duck was a major disappointment. The restaurant ought to have done much better since they are specialising in duck. On the whole, I'd... More

Haven't been for ages but we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and the food was as good as we remembered, with every dish having good flavours and being well cooked. The crispy duck was particularly good.
