We went for lunch on a Sunday, because we had been told the yum cha was one of the best and we weren't disappointed. We arrived at noon and the yum cha had already started at 10 am. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table. The food was plentiful and very delicious, the waiters didn't... More

went on a Friday night and we were seated immediately. Staff were reasonably friendly for Chinatown standard. Tried the set $30 p/p menu which was filing and nice. Alcohol was also reasonably priced. Staff lingered around a bit but were quick to refill your glass or bring out the food.

The dim sum was aplenty though none has any extraordinary taste. The service was bad, although it was full house on our time of visit. Saw a couple having to wait for over 30 minutes for their table to be cleaned up. Won't return in the near future....

Worst yum cha! Food was cold and lacking flavour. There was limited options and you had to get up and get what you wanted as staff only served certain sections. Terrible service. Staff were also rude, unhelpful and ignorant. Never again!

My mum and I went to Marigold for dinner on a weekend night. Staff were slow to acknowledge us and then we were gestured towards a far away table by the bathrooms and not guided to to the table. The waiter did not seem interested in helping us to make a suitable order for our needs. We waited a long... More

We had a banquet there and there was plenty of food. Nothing special just lots and lots of food. Staff were busy and sometimes rude and sometime not. Interesting place to visit but nothing special.

We visited on a Monday - so a quiet morning and were there quite early - we had skipped breakfast and had walked up from our accommodation at Adina Harbourside. The restuarant was pretty quiet but it was a monday and it was around 10 am. Food was delivered fast - almost too fast, we loved the dumplings and finished... More

Decent yumcha for family and friends get together however don't expect good service. Nothing put of the ordinary just reliable consistent yumcha fare. For something exceptional try Mr Wong.

Our friend who lives in Sydney took us to Marigolds for Sunday Yum Cha late lunch. Arriving about an hour before closing it was still busy but we were shown straight to a partially made up table-- then shooed onto a nicely made up table a row over! We weren't upset at all as it was amusing more than anything.... More

As a swede I was surprised by the staff running around with carts loaded with meals. You simply point at plates and pay per plate afterwards. The food was good and I will be back.
