Flamboyant Food, but mixed up drinks!

Went last night for a conference dinner. The restaurant is situated on two floors, with our function being held on the top floor to seat around 150 guests. The room is flamboyant and gaudy. Bright (lit by a number of large glass chandeliers). We were supposed to order our drinks before we sat and... read more

You will not leave this place hungry. There is so much food on offer. We love coming here with the family and friends. The more people, the merrier ... and the more food that you can share!

Had wonderful dim sum here with family. Very traditional service and food, as with most dim sum, it is at times a bit of a lucky dip. That said they had my favourite, ginger chicken feet!

We turned in here for lunch, as we had read good comments in some local broschures. We were to be diappointed. Loads of people there, one big hall with many tables. No menu to speak of, the food is carried along on charriots. As the service is only in chinese misunderstandings are commen. So tea is served without it being... More

Service received isn't worth the hindsight. Service maybe negligent at times but it is quick and to a degree amusing. The food is has a sublime quality. Do not pass the place up. A great Chinese new year designation!

1. The Welcome. There wasn't one. We had to ask three times to be shown to a table. 2. The drinks order. We were seated at the far side of the large table to accommodate our yet to arrive further guests. The waiter brought the beer we had ordered and plonked the bottles down at the un reachable far side... More

My husband and I went for Sunday yum cha. The place was busy and we were shown to a corner of the restaurant. Worst place in a yum cha environment because it was largely forgotten. Trolleys took a long time to come. The other diners resorted to going to the trolleys to get their food. At the end of the... More

Years ago this used to be a favorite spot for yum cha in sydney. After this week's visit, I've got to say that the standard at marigold is slipping. Food much the same as before, but there are now many other places with better-tasting food for less. Service is rude and pretty much non-existent. Won't be back again.

Service was the worst part. The staff were rude and dismissive. We had a 5:30 booking for a family group of 14 which included 4 children under the age of 5. We were still waiting for our food to arrive at 8:00 pm and still hadn't seen all of it by 9:00 pm at which point we asked for the... More

The worst service ( there wasn't any)I have never received in a restaurant, the table staff were very rude, it took over 3 and a 1/2 hours to receive our banquet and even then we had to take the last course away had to put the dish into take away containers ourselves or we would still be there.Never again.
