By far the best Yum Cha in FNQ

Service, food and atmosphere - I dare you to name one better!

“Overpriced but tasty yum cha”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Being from Montreal and used to cheap dim sum at Montreal's and Vancouver's chinatown, this place was a slap in the face in terms of price... about twice as expensive for everything! But it was very tasty, so four stars... got a little sampling but will be appreciating Montreal's Chinatown much more!

“Below average and highly priced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Went last night. Very expensive for a below average meal. Service was terrible. We ordered two starters, one arrived after about 30 mins and the second came 30 minutes later!! Can have a much better meal at Thai Cafe or Cafe China at good prices. Don't waste your time or money here.

“Yum Cha in Cairns”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We hadn't visited for a while and being the last weekend of the Chinese New Year celebrations (and free of kids sport for one weekend) we decided we would head into town. We have tried other restaurants in town who purport to do Yum Cha but Golden Boat would be the stand out. Service is nothing short of efficient with food continually taken to all tables on the trolleys. Having not had breakfast it was easy to quickly clock up a lot of plates. One good measuring stick is how many chinese people are in a chinese restaurant eating. Every time we have been, there has always been asian people eating in the restaurant.
