Average Chinese restaurant

We went for dinner and ordered off the full menu. A little disappointed with the timing - entree soup arrived with one main and the rice. There was then a long wait for the second meal. Chicken dish was nice but the sizzling pepper steak was quite tough. Average restaurant but I wouldn't go back... read more

Menu confusing but it didnt matter. We chose from dishes offerred to us - a series of entree sized things - all yummy. A bit of a gap between offerings sometimes but generally ok. Enjoyed the meal.

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.
