Great service

My partner and I were very impressed with the service we received here. We walked up and down 'china town' before stopping here. We then sat upstairs which was lovely and a large area so you weren't sitting on top of other customers. We ordered 3 dishes and rice and were very satisfied with the... read more

We took to this restaurant like a duck to water because we got a warm and friendly welcome, it was very clean, the food was delicious and it was very good value. We visited twice in a five day period for that reason. I would recommend.

We decided on dinner in china town, the trip advisor top restaurants had waiting times, so we followed the lady outside waving a menu and went upstairs, and we are so glad we did. The food was outstanding, there is nothing else I can say but try it yourself, service was very good, and staff seem to enjoy their jobs... More

The Restaurant is situated in Dixon Street not far from Darling Harbor. My wife and I were looking for some lunch and decided to eat there after being attracted but a young lady waving a menu and telling us that it was dry and warm upstairs. At the time the weather had taken a turn for the worse so it... More

The food was okay at best. The service was the real shame. Ordered bottle of water never came. Three dishes ordered for mains 2 came and the 3rd must of been forgotten as it came 30mins later. Asked the waiter 3 times what's happening no response. Better and cheaper options elsewhere

I have not dined here for over a decade but was reminded of just how good the Yum Cha and service are here. The low prices per plate saw me order far too much. The great taste and a good selection of beers made the task of eating it all very pleasant. This is definitely on my revisit list when... More

This was a very disappointing meal. Service was poor. We were told there was a table available for us, so we went upstairs but were then made to wait another 15 minutes (to the great discomfort of the people at the tables we were crowded around while waiting). We were finally seated at a table that was cleared and covered... More

This is a restaurant that has been in Chinatown for many years and how it has survived it is beyond me. We ordered 2 entrees; spring rolls and satay sticks. The spring rolls arrived promptly but were only luke warm, the satay sticks took another 20 mins to arrive and were not what they should have been. They were only... More
