“great food, good location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2009

Maybe the night we went (we have been to yum cha here before and it was pretty good - was too lazy to do a review though) was one right there out of the bag.

We started with market oysters (steamed with ginger and shallots). They were huge, they were tasty. The waiter placed them one by one on our plates as we disposed of each juicy, tender oceanic orgasm. Sorry, got a bit carried away there. The waiter even suggested that we should drink the left over jus from the shell. We did, it was good. Well, if that was an entree, bring on the mains.

We ordered prawns, a tofu dish, and a choi sum vegetable dish. The taste was good. The dishes were served at a good pace ... just before we finished one plate, another would appear. No obvious MSG. Delicious!

Now, the service. We asked for some chilli oil, and immediately our man was off on a mission. His return journey was interrupted by him having to serve a dish to one of the tables between the chilli oil source and our table. He put down the oil, served the other table, came directly to our table on completion, and apologised for the delay. I must say, that was pretty much straight out of the customer service manual.

Value? Hey, it was a little on the pricey side, but the food and atmosphere were good. The service was good. And considering it was late (8.30pm) on a Sunday evening, the place was reasonably full ... a good sign!

Great yum cha with a great view of the Glebe Island Bridge. Plentiful and fresh seafood, although you'd expect that since it's actually at the fish markets.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2008

Best Seafood ever for sure! Used to like Golden Century for years until this place opened. Hands down best value to quality ratio for Asian in Sydney and because it is above the fish markets it is always going to have the freshest ingredients. Service is good and menu is varied. Havent tried much of the yum cha, but its better than others I've had around town. Well travelled family member said the Salt and Pepper Crab and Chilli Lobster were the best he has had in 25 years worldwide!
