Having never tried Yum Cha before this restaurant showed me what I'd been missing.The wide range of freshly prepared, delicious tasting food brought around by the staff was a pleasure to experience. The flavours and varieties would appeal to all tastes so no one leaves unsatisfied. Very reasonably prices for a vast amount of food. brilliant.

This was a good experience, but not great. The meat was overcooked and the flavours were average. The staff were very attentive and the decor appealing however.

Such a busy place that has not only atmosphere but gives you the busy pace you'd expect from the Orient! Grab a seat and let the plates come flying out the kitchen for you the sample! Take some friends along and try variuos different treats!

We were there for lunch before leaving for the airport, it was within walking distance fro our hotel. We were actually pretty sceptical with chinese food in a foreign land but turned out it was acutally quite nice. We had rice with some stir fried dishes and baskets of dim sum, all turned out pretty tasty. Staffs were friendly and... More

There were six of us including 3 children. We had duck server in two courses (Peking duck and stir fried duck with lettuce). If you love duck, don't miss it. It was delicious! We also had fried rice and noodles plus various small dishes to share. We thoroughly enjoyed our food. The service was slightly slow and they charged for... More

Last night's meal was an insult to yum char if you ask me. Tasteless and overpriced Chinese food. Worst thing was that half the menu was not available for us to order, disappointing us time and time again when we decided what to order. It was written on the menu that "the kitchen closes at 9.30 pm" yet at 8pm... More

Two private rooms and a decent large public dining room. The food is reliable and I've had loads of banquet dinners here. They never overcharge and guests always leave full and happy. They will design a menu to suit your budget. If you have Chinese guests, just let the restaurant know what regional style you want then to cook. They... More

I got a takeaway from here while staying across the road. Ordered the satay chicken with rice and veg. Massive portion of rice with fresh veg and chicken but it just lacked the flavour you normally get with this dish. Cost around $17 so was on the pricer side too for this area of town. I would go back but... More
