I have been going to Ying Wah for years and always enjoy the meal. A great local Chinese with family atmosphere and reasonable prices. Nothing fancy!

Have been ordering takeaway from Ying Wah for years up until last night 30/1/18. The fried rice was absolutely tasteless. The beef and vegetables was watery and very bland, more like slices of boiled beef in water with vegetables. Honestly, it was horrible and certainly didn’t taste like the usual beef and vegetables we order. We took the meal back to the restaurant as we couldn't eat it and suggested they try it. We were sure it was a different cook and we asked. The hostess told us the usual cook was away. Regardless, meals should be of the same standard and quality. I've never felt the need to criticize a meal until now. Had they apologized and offered a replacement/complementary meal when their chef returned and put steps in place to not have this happen again I would hold off writing this review. We left our phone number but no call to date. Please improve your customer service and if your chef is absent ensure you have someone who can cook to the same standard. I certainly wouldn’t recommend Ying Wah after this episode.

I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years.
Great food, great service, and very consistent.
The sizzling satay prawns are incredible.
Old skool Chinese food at it's best.

This was not even good food - it was tasteless and we had to throw it away. Even simple fried rice had no flavour

We have lived in Balgowlah for 40 years and the Ying Wah has always been there.
Over the years the food has varied from good to bad but we decided to get a Take Away on Sunday night.
We were very surprised as to how good the taste & quality of the food. The Duck in Plum sauce was excellent and the Beef with ginger and shallots the best we have had from a Chinese restaurant.
Well done Ying Wah we will be back.
