Chinese so so

Visited this restaurant with a group. Guided to a ‘private’ room, but basically left alone, even after all of our group arrived. Not offered drinks, or even water. However, once they decided to take orders (about ten minutes), the service was fast and efficient. The food was very good, and... read more

Really, boring, don't be fooled by the increasingly ubiquitous 'chefs' standing in shop window.... Nothing unique

My friends and I visited this restaurant several days ago, the restaurant looked nice outside, but the service in there was like s***, the waitress and manager were super impolite and unpleasant, n we had to waited 20 minutes for two cups of water. The dishes there were good, but I will never come back cuz the extremely poor service.

Took my guests to this restaurant for lunch because we thought the yam Cha was good. The restaurant was empty at 11am. There was no staff to take drink or tea order. I had to ask for tea. Good was terrible. We had BBQ platter and most of the meat esp the duck was reheat. The texture was hard. The... More

My friends and I are regulars here. The dumplings are great! We always have fast service and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Good pricing for the quality of the food. I highly recommend putting the balsamic vinegar with EVERYTHING! Can't get enough of this restaurant.

If you have experienced real dumplings don't your time here, food was terrible including the vegetable pine nut lettuce leave cups... Not to mention they upped their prices by about $3-4 per dish because it was Easter Saturday would never go back very annoyed at how expensive this place was and how average the food was!

I went to Bamboo Basket when they first opened and hated it. I got convinced to give it another go....why do i listen to people. The food tasted like balloons and feet, the service was slow and rude. The fried rice was nice but not the best i've ever had. The dumplings with the soup just tasted strange and the... More

I love this place - good quality yum cha at reasonable prices (rare to find good value at South bank). The only thing I didn't like was that despite having a near-empty restaurant, they sat us right next to another couple - like I'm talking uncomfortably close, I think our tables were almost touching and we could hear every word...
