“Turnip cake was AWESOME”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had a meal here with the family on Sunday a couple of weeks ago, the girls had a lovely bottle of wine and the boys had a few beers, all reasonably priced.

The yum cha was certainly yum!!! The staff are great... Good humor and super friendly... We shared a lot of food and feeling full to the brim we foolishly ordered turnip cake... Normally quite strong and overpowering its probably not the smartest thing to order after so much food, but OH MY GOD!!! Talk about BLOW YOUR MIND!!! would definitely recommend.... Mmm craving some now!!!
Certainly NOT bland bland bland!

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

My husband and I had dinner here twice during our 5-night stay in Launceston. This restaurant is located in the city centre but has a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The food was top-class, reasonably-priced and service was great. The manager even made for us an astounding salmon dish when we asked for it even though it wasn't in the menu. Another plus was the fact that they knew about gluten-free food and customised our dishes accordingly.
We highly recommend this place.

“Great food great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

My partner and myself have been here twice now - and cant recommend it highly enough.
The food is fresh and great tasting, the staff are attentive but not overbearing.
The quail is simply to die for.
The best Chinese in Launceston by far!!!!

“Great service great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My husband and I love it here!
We first began coming because of our love of yum cha but then discovered all of the other lovely dishes also available on offer.
We frequent this restaurant with our families and and have always had a fantastic experience.
We decided on a take away Wednesday night and as usual it was fresh and tasty. It's nice to have a good serve and not just all sauce like we have had from some other Chinese restaurants.
I highly reccomend this restaurant if you are after quality Chinese food!
Thank you again for a lovely meal

At Minh Buu we have it all, Which seperate us from any Chinese Restaurant in Launceston.
We serve Yum Cha every Sunday, A La Carte six nights a week and with the new menu update, you will not find some of our traditional dishes anywhere. A MUST TRY

Our Take away prices would arguably be the cheapest in Launceston, and now we are offering a further 10% off which will definitely be cheaper.

thank you and we hope to see you soon

“Food okay, but bad attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Based on so many positive reviews, we called in for a light lunch, arriving at 1 pm on a Thursday. Only one other table occupied, in the entry area. Were met by a sour-faced man whose only greeting was "We're closing in half an hour". We only wanted soup and dim sims so decided we could meet his deadline. (Published lunch hours are 12.00 to 14.00). Food came quickly and was passable, after its trip through the microwave. There was no smile, no conversation. Food was plonked on the table and the waiter walked off. We paid, no tip, no response, no "goodbye" as we left. Shame - he gave us no incentive at all to go back for a full evening meal. I note also that if you write a negative review the owner comes back at you with smart-alec abusive comments - so much for customer relations. Says it all really. Say what you like, Mr Canh - we won't be back!

First of all, you dont have a clue about running a business or anything about customer relations.
I'm not like other restaurant owners who just take in comments from people like you.
I know exactly who you are once i saw this review.
You should be greatful that i sat you down and to serve you towards the hours of closing
You and your guest only and i mean ONLY wanted to have soup and dim sims no matter what time i close, so dont try to make yourself look good
and to say its microwave food, you dont have a clue
good food you would regard it as microwave food, and bad food you would regard it as great food
That explains everything, never the less its people like you that make restaurants look bad and quite frankly you and your guest are not welcome back
