Great food but poor service!

One of the best Yum Cha's in Sydney with great variety of food! I must say though, the service is appalling. They are rude and just ignore you sometimes - definitely room for improvement in the service department!

Ive not been so pleasantly surprised by the immensity of Chinese cuisine since about the age of 5, when I recall an amazing place that operated in Sans Souci n Sydney. Its been that long since ive been overjoyed by the flavours, serving portions, and prices, of a Chinese meal....that id almost given up on the cuisine as nothing more... More

Had lovely yum cha here. Food was tasty, service was good especially with 3 little kids, price was reasonable. Probably one of my favourite yum cha restaurants in Sydney.

Traditional and modern yum cha with the Trollies and lots of hot chinese tea. This gem is upstairs in the Rhodes shopping centre near the cinemas. The food is fresh, hot and keeps on coming. The locals and people like us travel for miles to get their yum cha fix!

Service and food amazing, was hoping for Yum Cha but forgot that it's a lunch time thing only... doesn't matter, a good excuse to go back.

Food is your ordinary yumcha so no problems with that. However, for such a large venue, it is extremely popular and full so you need to book ahead, or else arrive when doors open. There are two sittings, so you will be asked to move on if you stay too long. I have been to more relaxing places so wouldn't... More

Have been dining in this place with family and friends for nearly a decade. Place is simply the best. Food is great and service is superb. It is always best to reserve as this place can really get packed. They have a wide selection for yum cha and ala carte. This place has become a staple in our lives. If... More

Actually our second time here but not for some years. Dim Sum was very tasty and service was great. Best I've had for a while.

The long awaited Phoenix moment finally arrived. We were slightly rushed for time as their lunch time finishes at 2:45pm (we got there at 2:00), but the waitress got us a seat straightaway. The seating may have not been completely optimal as the dim sims rotated in the opposite direction and we had to ask a few times for it... More

Caught up with friends for a yum cha,meal was very good as always,this place is always buzzing so allow yourself time before you are seated,(up to an hour),the costing averaged out at about ten dollars per serving so can get quite expensive.
