interesting restaurant withYum Cha

This restaurant specialises in Yum Cha food. The duck is amazing, all the Dim Sims are of good quality, you must try the veal ribs in pepper sauce. mmmmmmm service can be a little slow at times but worth the wait.

My partner and I decided to have dinner here. It was the worst mistake we could have made. There was absolutely no service and the basics of water on the table were unheard of. It was really disappointing as the food was amazing. It was fairly good value for money as our plates were full. The lady behind the counter... More

We went to an Older Gentleman's Birthday Party- 10 dishes very well cooked and presented. the Food was excellent in taste and appearance. Staff were friendly and efficient- nothing was too much trouble. The place was clean tidy and not at all noisy. Well recommended- particularly their Dim Sums lunches.

Group of 10 pre-booked. Took almost an hour to get any food - only when we asked did they tell us one of their stoves had broken. They could have told us at the start as we had limited time.

We love Yum Cha here. Sunday lunch is Yum Cha time for my husband and I. There's a variety of food from steamed to fried. I love the fact that the dishes come in small portions and so we have a selection of dishes to eat for a good price. The lady is lovely but service can be a little... More

Went here for a friends birthday and was dubious after reading some of the bad reviews, these in my opinion are unfounded!! We got a set meal as there was 11 of us ( whatever one is $17/18 each?) everything on it was AMAZING!!! BBQ Pork is so succulent and juicy- full of flavour. The pork buns are also to... More

My bf and I went to this restaurant for lunch. The women seems to be the owner was having a sleep in the restaurant. Not very good service and the duck/ chicken hanging beside the counter do not look fresh.

We wanted to give our friends a taste of 'Yum Char' ( also called 'Dim Sum') and found this place to be quite satisfactory. It does help if you know what you would like to have because the food does not come in trays that are paraded around by the waiters/waitresses. There is a menu which you can choose from... More

We came here for lunch because we were passing by. No expectations and we were happy with the meal. It was quiet, so we were served quickly. It seemed authentic and was very tasty. The waitress was helpful and funny, typical Chinese no airs and graces. " what you want? This is good! Ok?" Would go back.
