We went for yum cha on a sunday morning. The food was ok, but nothing that really stood out. Unfortunately the decor and atmosphere did little to help.

Little selection of yum char dishes. Service at front desk terrible.
I would definitely not go back - there are much better yum char restaurants.

Location is one big wide open room, very noisy. The food was medium taste, and the service was also not very courteous.

I recently stated in a review on this forum that this restaurant served consistently reliable yum cha over several years.

However, I have just learned that Auckland City gave it an E food hygiene rating on 25 July. This grade states that the restaurant has an unsatisfactory level of compliance with food hygiene regulations.

For this reason, I have removed my previous review. I will not be visiting this restaurant again until there is a drastic improvement in the Council's grading. I cannot recommend that anyone else should visit it until this happens.

We use this restaurant a fair bit for both lunches and dinner. The Yum Cha is good but certain dishes like the deep fried Taro dumplings and Prawn toasts are only available at weekends, so it gets a bit boring with the common old garden prawn variations and sumai.

However their ordinary menu food is great Their salt and pepper squid is outstanding and I have never had better, as is their prawn and broccoli.

Recommend for dinner
