“yummy yum cha :great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

have been here a couple of times this year. Delicious yum cha served with a smile. consistently good food..fresh plump dumplings with great seafood and meat varieties-loved the seafood and coriander ones especially, feather light bbq pork buns and flaky gorgeous little custard tarts to finish on. great for the whole family as you'll find something to please everybody. much better value and flavour than some of so called modern asian 'small plates' restaurants.

“CaroleJ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

They do a very nice Yum Cha here. Good choice, all items are the one price $4.50 per plate. I am referring to China House they are upstairs in China Town, Fortitude Valley. They do charge though for fresh chopped chili in soy sauce, wasn't too pleased with that! Good service and well worth a visit.

“What's gone wrong???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

We have eaten here 6 times in the last year and always enjoyed their YumCha but today was a disaster. Yes- it was Saturday lunchtime and the place was very busy but that doesnt excuse the limited selections on the carts and insipid and tastless offerings. Have they changed chefs ? If so, get the old one back!

“Best yum cha out of 4 I've tried. It's...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2010

Best yum cha out of 4 I've tried. It's not too noisy and you're not sitting on top of each other. We go to Chinahouse at least once a fortnight. We now have a VIP card which entitles us to 10% off each visit. Beat the rush and arrive at about 11:30am on the weekends.
