“Disappointing night out...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Terribly disappointing food and service here last night.
The only clientele being looked after was the Chinese family of 8.wont be returning .
BBQ pork noodle soup.... One very dry small piece of pork., arrived ten minutes after my wife's soup.
Main course was nothing to shout about.
Instantly forgettable experience.

“Good tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We had a meal for five (takeaway) from the Mandarin Court. It was tasty, hot and exactly what we asked for. On the expensive side, but they definitely deserve all the awards they have received.

“Good not great, but top marks for service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We went here on our first night in mermaid beach for dinner with our young daughter.

When we arrived we realised we had forgotten our daughters favorite cup and fork and they were very accommodating and made a great fuss and made our daughter feel very special.

The food was good but not great, but they did cater to our daughters food allergy which was amazing.

Overall a pleasant experience for our family

They do Yum Cha for lunch. It's nice but a bit expensive. There are more reasonably priced Yum Cha options available on the coast.

“The best Yum Cha on the coast.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Have been a few times now feels like your in Hong Kong though you are on the G. Coast! Great service from quirky and funny staff and the food is exceptionally good! Would recommend to anyone who likes a really good and freshly made Yum Cha!!
