17 PRINCES STREET CORK
I really like the interior of this restaurant and I have made a number of attempts to photograph it but I have always been disappointed by the results. The interior is very dark but there are one or two really strong lights that overpower the sensors … I tried underexposing but the resulting noise is unacceptable.
Cork City has many excellent restaurants but unfortunately many of them do not open until 5PM or 6PM and that does not suit. Most do not open on Mondays and others are closed on Tuesdays (maybe Monday and Tuesdays). The selection of Chinese restaurants is somewhat limited so by default I usually have lunch at Yuan Ming Yuan as I really like the restaurant (especially the staff).
Some reviews mentioned that only the set menu was available at lunch time but I did not find this to be the case as I was offered the Dim Sum and à la carte menus as well as the lunch menu. The Dim Sum was excellent but I ordered much more than I could eat.
