Yi Pin is frequented by the Chinese community of Port Elizabeth, testifying to its loyal adherence to authentic and traditional flavours.
Of course, there are popular favourites (like stir-fried beef in black bean sauce), but there is also a range of dishes that is less well known amongst those that have never travelled to Asia. Sushi and teppanyaki also feature on the menu.
Yi Pin is an upmarket, classy restaurant with a warm and elegant atmosphere. The Chinese owners frequently greet and check on patrons to ensure that their high standards never slip. The wine list has most of the South African favourites, as well as traditional sake (which has a deceivingly high alcohol content, so beware).
