Manchester Chinese Restaurants Awarded Top Accolade

MANCHESTER-based Chinese restaurants, Yang Sing and Sweet Mandarin, have been awarded a Pagoda accreditation – two of 32 Chinese restaurants in the UK to receive the accolade.

"The UK has some of the best Chinese culinary talent outside of China and The Legacy of Taste Pagodas herald the best of the best establishments."

Judged by The Legacy of Taste, an authority of Michelin starred Chinese chefs and food and drink experts, the Pagoda is a new three-tiered award given to Chinese restaurants that demonstrate high standards of service and authentic cooking.

James Wright, founder of Legacy of Taste, says: “The UK has some of the best Chinese culinary talent outside of China and The Legacy of Taste Pagodas herald the best of the best establishments.

“Yang Sing and Sweet Mandarin have demonstrated exceptional standards to have been awarded the Pagodas.”

Yang Sing and Sweet Mandarin will be listed in The Legacy of Taste Eating Out Guide.

What or who is Sweet Manadrin paying? It is not even close to being in the top 30!

Much ado about nothing. These 'awards' are nothing more than a PR vehicle for Tsingtao and its distributor Halewood International to promote its beer brand by association with the Chinese restaurant industry. No surprise then to find that Harry Yeung has previously participated as a 'judge' and been rewarded with his 'award' this year. Expect to see the Tse sisters joining the 'Michelin starred' judges in future years... Sometimes you have to read between the lines.
