“Hotpot buffet”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Walked past one day and we returned for the hotpot buffet. It came with a serving of 2 raw ysters and 1 raw abalone each. Ingredients were fresh and quite authentic. Spicy soup was disappointing as it was watered down. Probably toned down to suit local tastebuds.

Went here for a business dinner, in a group of 5, the level of service provided is excellent, it's attentive and very knowledgable. The food is excellent, and I would recommend the Peking Duck, which was excellent. Also a really good sweet and sour pork, which I am usually not a big fan of. This restaurant is a little away from Chinatown and the CBD, but it is definitely worth the trip, I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends.

“BEST Chinese Seafood Restaurant in Melbourne”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

Being Chinese, one of the normal complaints of a chinese restaurant is :-
1. Service
2. Authenticity
3. Value
4. Cleaniless
5. Ambiance
6. Tastiness
7. Parking
8. Classiness/Elegance

Gold Leaf Restaurant at Harbourtown Shopping Centre, Docklands, rates 9/10 for all the above. We live in one of the Townhouses above the Shopping Centre and dine/takeaway at this restaurant every week.

Whenever friends/relatives visit from overseas/interstate, this is the ONLY chinese restaurant we will bring them as it has never disappoint!

The Yum Cha is daily, which is awesome, has fantastic variety, good value and very good!

They also have a Takeaway Store downstairs at the food court called Good Taste, which is equally tasty and good value.

And you must not miss the Steam Boat Restaurant facing the Waterfront, which is also part of the Gold Leaf Group of Restaurants. Also, by far, the Best Value steamboat restaurant one can find in Melbourne!

“One of the best Chinese I've ever been to!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Went on Tuesday night with my boyfriend after looking up the reviews etc. on Trip Advisor, and I can gladly say that it had the best Chinese food I've ever had! We went for Banquet B and for AUD$48 each the amount of food and of high quality was outstanding! If I was staying in Melbourne for longer, I would go again! I advise anyone considering a restaurant for Chinese food, to head to The Gold Leaf!

“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.
