If we’re being honest, Young Cheng doesn’t deviate too much from the classic China Town restaurant style. It’s position on Lisle Street may leave it with its own posse of restaurants that I’ll call the ‘Off-Gerard Street’ crowd but the lanterns, dragons and cramped tables are in keeping with many of the neighbouring eateries. However, with a reputation for bringing in Hong Kong celebrities (according to a well-placed source) its standard décor is clearly enough for Canto-royalty - and therefore us.

As something of a China Town connoisseur, Young Cheng’s rep already had me interested. After sitting down through a two-hour dinner - during which we were not rushed once – it became apparent that it was the food the stars come for, and let’s believe they really do.

Our meal consisted of sliced duck with pineapple, choi sum, Singapore noodles and fried squid and happily fed three of us. Solid flavours, a welcome absence of grease on the noodles and fine sizzled batter on the squid left me a believer. Prices are reasonable for the quality and there is also a daily dim sum menu.

If you want to avoid the tourists then it’s always a good bet to stay away from Gerard Street and that is just the case at Young Chen. A buzzing restaurant with no shortage of authenticity, if you’re a fan of the cuisine then the same-old-same-old nature of Chinatown’s restaurants should never overly matter. The food at Young Cheng is well worthy of repeat visits.

The service of this restaurant was shocking. They were watching football match all the time, didn't check waiting customer properly (more than 30 min!) and finally served seats first to Chinese speakers who obviously pushed in the cue without any reasons. Although the food looked nice, I can't recommend this restaurant because of these unprofessional service.

I ate at this restaurant today and it was awful. The food was ok but poorly presented and the beer was warm but what was worse was that the manager shouted at me and was incredibly unhelpful. I was very angry to pay a service charge as I had been made to feel awkward and not welcome at all. I would certainly not recommend this restaurant to anybody...not even a starving dog.

The food here is good. My objections are about the service and I find this with many Chinese restaurants. Chinese people and Caucasians are treated much better than black or Asian people.Chinese and Caucasians are offered prawn crackers at the beginning of the meal and cut oranges at the end. Waiters and some waitresses are quite rude. They also charge 60p per glass of tap water. Have decided after coming here for over ten years not to come here again.The owner is a really lovely man and I have spoken to him about the service but he's not always around to witness this.Also why is there a separate menu for Chinese people with lower prices? Is this legal?
