“Yum char yummy!,”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Visited Harbour City Melbourne on a Sunday and popped in here for a Yum Char lunch with our two teenage kids. The place was packed out but the staff found us a table and the trolleys started making their rounds. Food was all very delicious but the drinks order was a bit of a wait. We did not get a visit feom the rice trolley but were not too worried as we had plenty to choose from. We all enjoyed our lunch and would definitely return if back in Melbourne.

“We have Yum Cha here whenever we visit Melbourne”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

We visit Melbourne at least once a year and whenever we are here we visit this restaurant.
The Trolley Yum Cha is exceptional.
Weekends obviously are the busiest times and you need to book if you don't wish to wait in line.
The variety is wonderful and we have had dishes here that we have never been offered anywhere else.
The staff and service are also very good.
I cannot fault it

“One of the best yum cha's in Melbourne”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Great service and good food, especially the braised chicken feet and egg tart – highly recommended! Bookings should be made beforehand as the restaurant is packed everyday. Price is also considered reasonable for yum cha and we'll definitely come here for brunch often from now.

“Excellent Yum cha experience”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

This place was a really pleasant surprise.

Went down to Docklands for some shopping, and were looking for somewhere to eat. We saw this lovely decorated chinese place who looked like they were serving dim sum. We thought we'll give it a try..... particularly when we saw the number of chinese people.

We were there for lunch (around 11:45am). The service, food, decor and experience were exceptional. The next surprise was the bill..... we had a wide variety of plates shared between 2 and we only paid $55. Very good value for money.

Best yum cha experienceWould be be going back to this place for sure.
