A good selection of large portion dishes that were not too westernised. Staff were friendly and service was prompt. Background music from the 80's & 90's was an interesting addition

I am Chinese and I know Chinese food well. The food at China Yum Char is authentic Cantonese food and delicious. You may get fresh seafood dishes here. However, they are pricy. Service is ok.

We have visited this restaurant several times in the past. We booked our table a week ago and were asked if we had a voucher which we did not have. We were asked again when we arrived at the reception and again when being led to the table, and again when we paid the bill - inefficiency or typical Chinese... More

The selection of food available was fine. There are some Chinese specialties amongst the selection. There is a limited but adequate wine list, Prices are not unreasonable.

Went with teenage children to show them what Yum Char was all about. Meal was average with pork we had being mainly bones, nothing stood out. Drinks were only 2 lemonades yet it cost over $20per head. From what we had I was expecting about $15 per head max.

We went fairly late for yum cha so getting dishes was slow but we were able to order directly. Wasnt bad but wasnt amazing. The dishes are quite expensive for sizes especially larger rice dishes and meat dishes. Roast honey pork was mostly fat

We love our Yum chars as a family so have been round to a lot of places in Auckland. The food here is rather pretentious - check the photo icon above, I mean what is that? A couple of deep fried pastry thing shuffed in a glass to make it look fancy. Honest, is that even Yum Char at all?... More
