Yeung Sing Cantonese Restaurant
The Yeung Sing is a bit of a hidden gem. Tucked away in the Nottinghamshire market town of Bingham, this delightful family-run restaurant serves excellent-quality Cantonese dishes in a setting that oozes style and an alluring ambience.
Don’t be fooled by the unassuming red-brick exterior – once inside you are transported to another world. The authentic 1920s Shanghai décor is beautiful and helps to create a lovely atmosphere that combines traditional with modern in a spacious and comfortable setting. The service is friendly and attentive, with owners Nigel and Pok U Regan frequently seen front of house and welcoming guests.
Our meal included a lovely wonton soup, some superb deep-fried salt and pepper fish slices, ma po tofu with chicken, pickled cabbage and bamboo shoots, beef with broccoli, Thai spare ribs and some of the most flavoursome yeung chow fried rice we’ve ever tried. The extensive menu combines many “traditional” favourites with more adventurous and slightly different combinations, making it a cut above your average local Chinese restaurant. The menu also includes the house specialities of “sizzling dishes and bubbling Pots”, making this venue perfect for the single diner, couples and families.
The Yeung Sing is a great find, and although there has been a Chinese restaurant on this site for many years, Nigel and Pok U have made it their own. We shall definitely be back.
The restaurant also has a take-away service and includes a cocktail bar – Bar 15 – and a hotel, the Bingham Townhouse, which featured on Channel 4’s ‘Four in a Bed’. It regularly hosts live music, too. There is some on-site parking and plenty of public parking close by.
