“Authentic Shanghainese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is my Brisbane pick for authentic Shanghainese food, particularly the Shanghai-style dumplings - little explosions of taste in the mouth! All the starters we had were superb, and the main dishes were reminiscent of Szechuan dishes we tasted in Beijing. Be warned, not for the faint-hearted though! Service was friendly and prompt. The best way to enjoy authentic Chinese is to order for the table rather than individual portions. This way your meal will be both a gastronomic delight and a social success. Highly recommended.

“Great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Absolutely great atmosphere and prompt friendly service. The menu has a good variety of cuisine in it. At lunch there is yum cha which is cooked when you order. An absolute must have is the xiao long bao (shanghai dumpling) which tastes the way it is supposed to. Usually at most yum chas the xiao long bao is made to a sort of cantonese style which is ok but not the same as a proper one. Another good item from the menu is the noodles with shredded duck. It is really good. The food is great, the service is great, the atmosphere is great and value is great. There is not much letting this place down except for maybe the furniture for seating. But all up its one of the best restaurants in Brisbane.

“Cheap and good! Best Siu Long Bao!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

The food is simple and good. They have a lot of varieties of dumplings (siu long bao). Theirs is one of the better ones I have tasted in Brisbane. some of the deep friend dishes is average, best to just go for the dumplings which seems to be what they specialised in. The service is typical of most asian restaurants - not exactly service with a smile but more like "what do you want now?" attitude. Works for me as I don't care too much about too friendly type service, so long as I get my food on time, which I do at this place.

“Best new restaurant in sunnybabk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

I went here for lunch and had to come back for dinner. Fantastic service. The food was presented very well and tasted great. The shanghai dumplings were the best I've tasted so far in Australia. I recimend the duck noodkes as a light dish. Will return to this restaurant.
