Was recommended to try this by an out of towner. Looked promising but a little disappointing, may have been better with bigger group of people to try more dishes. Nothing wrong with dishes but not remarkable. I was disappointed with price, seemed more expensive than it should have been and did not appreciate cashier pointing out where I could leave... More

It was our first time visit to this restaurant for dinner. Food wasn't fantastic or something to 'wow' about. Fault lies more on the inattentive service. Staff are seen paying more attention and service to certain group of patrons which appeared to be their regulars and Caucasians. It was indeed an awful experience and I would not patronize this restaurant... More

We were rushed to a table, dishes were barely warm and dumplings too thick. Service was cold and unfriendly. Bill was expensive and didn't enjoy anything apart from the tea jelly. Put a dampener on our day :-(

This restaurant is one of the best yam cha in Sydney. The service unfortunately is not that good. For dinner is another restaurant like so many others. Will be good if the staff would speak a bit more English!

We've eaten here previously for yum cha and while we would not rate the yum cha highly we had a great experience for dinner. The vast restaurant was virtually deserted and we had 3 or 4 waiters fawning over us (not literally but considerably for a Chinese restaurant). I suspect the attraction was my 83 year old mother-in-law! We had... More

I love this restaurant because of the service. They have the friendliest and most responsive staffs. I've been here for several times and I can say their yum cha menu is really good.

One of the my favourite restaurant at sydney, you have to be patient if you decided to yum cha at marigold. Because, first: if your face is asian, the staff will talk in canton, and they only know bit english. Second, its really2 crowded at weekend. So, the best time to come is during weekdays around 1-2 pm.

Looking for good Yum Cha in Sydney we were told to try Marigold. Having never eaten there before we actually had a hard time trying to find the place and then there was a lot of confusion as to how we actually were to be seated. It was a weekend so very busy and there appeared to be people everywhere.... More

Looking at the other reviews our experience was pretty typical. The food is of a very high standard, especially the honey prawn,sweet and sour pork and Duck. Service is pretty disinterested and rushed. The food is worth going for but at this price point you probably expect a bit more of a welcome.

We had a group of 10 men visit for dinner on Friday night. We all ordered a beer to start and our dishes started to arrive quick smart but so did the beers whether we wanted them or not and had to physically grab our waiter to order him to stop. Perhaps he thought wdidnt know what he was doing.The... More
