Authentic, reasonably priced, and good service! I'd eat again here next trip for sure. Its busy but we got in without a booking (British-speak for reservation)

This is a really nice restaurant with good service, affordable prices and great view, overlooking the City Airport. I had the Dip Sum, Chicken Kung-Po and Special Fried Rice. I can honestly say that the food was excellent. I will return...

When we arrived on a Monday evening the place was absolutely packed and we were amongst the few non-Asian guests which to me is always a great sign for the authenticity of the food and we were not disappointed. The venue is right opposite the city airport with a view on the runway but thanks to excellent isolation you didn't... More

Wasn't expecting much given the remote location, but actually, the food was good, and the dishes were well executed. Nice cocktails too. We had eaten fairly early, but as we left it was getting busy, so it's obviously a local favourite. Didn't get to try the dim sum menu, but it looks good.

Visited on saturday evening at 6pm, after setting up for a trade show at excel. Solid menu, all the usuals. All of it was good quality -- crispy duck, prawn toast, and a selection of mains. Everything was as expected, although the seaweed was arguably a little chewy. Attentive quiet staff, and lots of it. In and out in an... More

Very good, reliable Dim Sum. Nice view looking out at City airport, and spacious seating. Tried many of the classics, all of which were hits rather than misses. Also good beef and black bean noodles.

This was our first visit to Yi-Ban but certainly won't be last. The food was well cooked, and the flavours subtle and fresh. All in our party we're very impressed and enjoyed their meals. Service was quiet and efficient and even though the restaurant was almost full we weren't kept waiting at any time. Definitely highly recommended but suggest you... More

I visited here on recommendation of a couple of my friends. Even though the reviews were mixed I gave it a try. It was excellent. Absolutely no complaints at all. Great service and I never felt rushed at all. Reasonable priced too.
