The food was amazing and delicious. Made fresh and flavorful. This is a place that you don't want to miss out. If you are in this neck of the woods. Go check them out. Eat some Dim Sum and enjoy. Have so many different selections to choose from. So grab your appetite and get ready. Can't wait until my travels... More

Very good dim sum. Lots of choices and great service. You can also order off menu. Chinese broccoli was very good. We ordered a variety of shrimp and pork dishes plus rice and desserts. It is in the corner of a shopping center.

This is not a fancy place. It's tucked in a small strip center by a gas station. The decor is pleasant but plain. The food is not your standard Chinese fare. They do different things with the usual ingredients, and it comes out pretty well!

If you are a "foodie" and love to find hidden treasures, then this is for you! By far the best food that Cincinnati has to offer!!! We are a family of 8 with a recently adopted 8 yo child from China. We have never seen him so excited about any food! The shrimp and lobster and vegetable dishes were super... More

While out shopping a quick pull up online found a couple restaurants near Menards and we picked this one randomly. We wanted something different and didn't want to wait to drive all the way back to KY. Driving up, was a little confusing but the restaurant is in the corner of the first little strip mall next to the gas... More

I stopped in for lunch on a Thursday around 11:45am. It wasn't crowd but there were at least four full tables of busy diners which was a good sign. The menu is pretty extensive and some of it was in Vietnamese (a great sign). I ordered the Crispy Pan Fried Noodles with Beef and 2 orders of the BBQ pork... More

My husband and I visit from Louisville to Cincinnati at minimum, twice a year. Each trip we are excited to visit Uncle Yips and is a must visit. They serve excellent Dim Sum for lunch on the weekends, not sure how it is done during the week. Their dim sum menu is extensive ranging from various types of dumplings, smelt,... More

I enjoy Chinese but every once in a while want to eat something more authentic that isn't the normal American-Chinese food. Uncle Yip's is my new favorite place. Of course they still have the usual dishes, but offer a special menu with more common Chinese fare. Located in a strip mall, it isn't much to look at.The decor is pretty... More

I was in the area and off-diet, so ... DANGER! This is a small restaurant in the corner of a small strip mall. It has a very authentic 'Asian-Dive' feel. Chinese/Asian newspapers in the entry space, Year of The Ram hangings everywhere, Freebee Chinese beer ads ... looks promising! They promote Dim Sum and that's what I came for. The... More

Uncle Yip's serves the finest authentic southern Chinese cuisine possible. Cantonese, Thai, Hunan, Sichuan Dim Sum and seafood is on the menu. Twin lobster along with dinner specials are favorites (ask your server or check the board for special foods). Dim sum along with push carts are a favorite for weekend brunches. Catering and special reservations for parties are available. We offer a full bar with a wide selection of Asian beers and are centrally located in a plaza on Reading Road across from Sports Plus next to the Speedway gas station. Come check us out.
