Food quality is always good. Some dishes are definitely of a fresher, better prepared and standard than others. If you are looking for the standard beef & lamb type dishes, sure, you will enjoy them and they are of a good standard. But generally most restaurants are capable of accommodating these standard varieties - try something a little different. Try... More

Was a little hard to locate as we wanted to switch it up abit last week with yam cha. Arrive at 1115 but only got a table at 12. Not to say I wasn't prepared, if you haven't booked a table in advance - expect to wait when you want to do branch at dimsum on Sundays in an Asian... More

For a massive restaurant, they do a great job with Yum Cha. Wide variety of steamed, fried and special dishes. Some days the wait is a little too long (> half an hour), but if you get there a little earlier, it's generally not a problem. Last visit we had a pram, so they put us at a table with... More

Sometimes I go to yum cha and feel a little removed from the whole experience, as I am Anglo. Not at this place though - all are made to feel welcome. I love that the tasty plates of food are described to you if you need it, and all with a smile. The food is just great, always worth the... More

Yum Cha lunch today. Had three dim sums, two house snacks and two jasmine teas for AUD 82.-; for that price I expect tasty, well prepared hot food. However you won't get that in this place. Food was of limited choice, tasteless and cold. Cannot recommend this place, we tried it once but never again.

Me and my gf had lunch here the other day. Service is great considered it is a a lot bigger than most yum cha places. The chicken feet and the ducks wee terrific! It is a bit more costly but the food is worth trying!

Had a family gathering at one of the private room for yum-cha; it wasn't until half way through our meal that we discovered there's a minimum charge of $300 per table!!! What the... apparently it's because we were in the room! If we had known, we definitely won't be sitting in there as 1) it's isolated and lacks atmosphere (not... More

Visited this restaurant yesterday afternoon. During the 40 minute wait to get a table I was thinking "Wow, this must be some great Yum Cha" When we finally got a table we left after 20 minutes due to complete frustration with the wait staff ignoring us.

This restaurant is always packed with people at lunch time, but at night it's not quite the same. We were there for dinner on the weekend and had the braised tofu and lamb shanks with cumin. The dishes were nicely presented and appeared to be appetizing. However, when we came to taste them, they were virtually tasteless. The tofu skin... More
