Went there with group of my friends and we were outraged at the price of every dish, anyway we decided to order, after we ordered few dishes the lady (might be the boss) was not happy and told us with a grumpy accent " is that all." Despite all the food was OK for the money we paid. Sadly there... More

I decided to take a German friend to yum cha and was outraged at the bill we received. They ripped us off completely and I think it's an absolute disgrace that when wanting to discuss the bill you are talking to someone who cannot even speak English. It's an easy place to get ripped off and unfortunately there won't be... More

Food is typical for yum cha, it's good but there's nothing special. I'd recommend the pork buns, they are really delicious. We went there on 1st of January for a late lunch at around 2 pm and were seated immediately, although the place is busy. Tea and food were quick. Service is fast and efficient. Note: They have $3 surcharge... More

We like going to the marigold for Yum Cha. We prefer the 5th floor to the 4th floor (only weekends). There is a good variety and you can also order from the menu if you can't see what you want on the trolleys. We loved the poached dumplings, the greens and of course the mango pancakes. Not the cheapest around... More

One of Sydney's best yum-cha / dim-sum restaurants. Marigold is located very centrally within Sydney's Chinatown, and is walking distance both from the CBD and Darlin Harbour. If you're after Chinese food (not that food court stuff that they pass off as Chinese food), this is the place to go.

If you have stepped into the the large banquet hall that his filled with round tables leaving meager room for the food carts to navigate, you will feel at home. The banquet hall was crowded, the women pushing the food carts preferring to speak in Mandarin and the parade of food steady. We enjoyed at least three types of shumai... More

Very ordinary food, noisy, waiters unhelpful. There are much better options that this old time place which is badly in need of an update decor and food wise. Half our ordered meals did not appear so we left hungry. We were told very naught chef will be better next time. No next time for us
