The Yum Cha is really good, the service not too rushed. We do Yum Cha a fair bit and we both agree this is good. When we got the bill there was a 15% discount, we asked the waiter why and found out that if you leave before 12.30 pm Monday to Friday you get the discount so my suggestion... More

This was a find; thanks to business colleagues who work in the city. There are a number of Yum Cha restaurants in mid town, Sydney. This one shades them all thanks to the quality of it's food and good old yum cha trolleys which keep coming around the restaurant - back to the good old days of quality yum cha... More

This restaurant must be one of the best places to eat Yum Cha in Sydney. The food is amazing, fresh and tasty with lots of variety. The trolleys come around regularly and the staff are very willing to help explain. Will be back definitely

We came for yum cha a little late (around 2) They seated us in the nearly empty restaurant and brought us some food rather quickly. It was OK enough bur nothing to rave about. The trolleys had stopped so we ordered some stuff from memory and it came quickly. It was OK. Nothing spectacular.

We had lunch here in the weekend and the food is Very delicious and well made. The Dim Sums are incredible and trying the dessert is a must. I like the difference from other restaurants that here they walk around with trolleys and try to sell more food. It is fun in the beginning to see all the options but... More

We keep coming because it's the best. Again today excellent dim sum washed down by ice cold beer. Also had dinner here 2 weeks ago and the chicken was just outstanding. My guest from Melbourne loved the place. It's busy because it's so good!

I have a lunch with my colleagues on Sunday. Though we arrived at about 11:45am, we still need to wait for a table as it is really busy for this restaurant. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes to wait for a table. About the dim sum - they are excellent and the taste is as good as those I... More

I was here for lunch on 10 February 2017 and became violently ill that same night. I have no doubt it was because of the food I ate at this restaurant. I will avoid this place in future.

The restaurant was really busy, but that is no excuse for the atrocious behaviour of the staff. We were here for yum cha. The staff kept pushing the trolleys so close to us that the hot trolleys were passing literally one inch from our bodies, even though there was plenty of space. We tried moving our chairs to accommodate them... More

Our young family were welcomed by friendly staff and looked after with suggested dumplings for our picky children. My husband and I enjoyed both our mains and highly recommend the Palace Chicken... our kids also enjoyed some of the chicken (we were surprised it was a whole chicken)!
