Just wish they would take bookings as the wait can be long unless you get in early or outside of the food frenzy times ;-)

Always busy and hard to come with the family but today on my own and I walked straight in. Amazing crab and pork Siu long dumplings and noddles. Drunken chicken is a must for entree.. It's a bit like wine marinated chicken taste fantastic! Also got to drink the fresh soya bean milk.

You sometimes have to wait but it is seldom for long and the service is so swift that you can enjoy a quick lunch or dinner. The food is fresh and well prepared and the menu varied enough for anyone to find something they will enjoy. The branch in Lemon Grove is equally as good but the ambience is not... More

This restaurant is the sophisticated sibling of the one in Lemongrove. The food tastes the same, but the ambience of the experience is so much nicer! Great decor and furniture. Having said that, on our visit yesterday, they had run out of 2 menu items- disappointing the teenagers. The potstickers, steamed & baked items were moist & tasty, fresh &... More

We normally get take away but have dined in a few times. Although not since it has been renovated. Food is always good dining in or take away but service is not great. I think it is more to do with the fact they are always so busy and rushing & it makes you feel like just a number. English... More

Good quality food and primpt service. They have a yum cha style menu with most favourites. Busy and fast paced this is worth a visit but be prepared to wait for a table.

The dumplings are delicious and balanced. However, some dish seems to have a lot of msg. Avoid the Shandong chicken at any cost.

If you're a dumpling person, you absolutely must try this Shanghainese restaurant. It's situated inside the Chatswood Chase shopping centre. I love the decor of the restaurant which transports you back to China. The wait staff are friendly and dressed smartly in black uniforms. Cleanliness of the restaurant is also good. The dumplings are always piping hot so beware when... More

We quite enjoyed the food, when it eventually arrived.Our two dishes were widely spaced with rice in the middle which was cold by the time dish 2 arrived, after two enquiries and a full scale complaint.Rice replaced on request.Too noisy on a busy lunchtime too. Wouldn't return.

It's been so hard to find nice dumplings in Sydney, there is always something wrong. But I finally found my perfect stop! Service is average like in most Asian restaurants.
