Best Chinese Restaurants Manchester
1. Yang Sing, Princess Street
This Manchester Chinese restaurant is in a class of its own. A lot of people get confused with Little Yang Sing restaurant and Yang Sing Restaurant. They are both good restaurants, and are both run by members of the same family, but Yang Sing on Princess Street is the best Chinese restaurant in Manchester in our opinion.
A lot of our Manchester Magazine team can often be seen here, enjoying the great Chinese food and the fantastic drinks that are on offer.
