While the decor at Long Yin errs on the traditional – think dark woods and bamboo, Buddha statues, lacquered panels and the like – the service is bang up-to-date. In fact, the lengthy grape list is picked from a nifty iPad app, which divides the list into regions, varieties and price ranges to make the choice that little bit easier. Just like the alcohol, the dining menu is also packed with choice. Appetisers aren’t exactly a break from the norm – expect favourites such as prawn toast and wonton vegetable soup, both of which are spot on when it comes to taste. The rest of the menu concentrates on Cantonese and Szechwan specialities, and the choice is almost too overwhelming. High points include the Hong Kong-style sweet and sour chicken, which is just sweet and sticky enough without being cloying.

Amazing food and not many places in Dubai serve pork in a seperate kitchen and get to taste so amazing! This is a place not to be missed even for family. The Friday Dim Sum was Great Value!!! :D we shall go back again :)

we ordered different types of chicken, meat, and seafood and they were all stunning, and delicious.
The sauces they provided us were really unique and tasteful.

the food is worth the price for sure.

The restaurant looked old and dated. Went there to try their Friday dim sum promotion and couldn’t see what the hype was about. Food was below mediocre in terms of taste, quality and presentation. I ordered half a duck and it came it wasn’t even cut properly. It was a bit difficult to eat huge pieces of duck with chopsticks. Not going there again.

The Friday dim sum at this place is a ripper deal. Food a cut above any of the other Dubai options (and I've tried most of them). Fresh, tasty noodle dishes, great prawns . Really good stuff. Just avoid the beef strips - I don't want to know what part of the cow that is.
