We were there for lunch before leaving for the airport, it was within walking distance fro our hotel. We were actually pretty sceptical with chinese food in a foreign land but turned out it was acutally quite nice. We had rice with some stir fried dishes and baskets of dim sum, all turned out pretty tasty. Staffs were friendly and... More

There were six of us including 3 children. We had duck server in two courses (Peking duck and stir fried duck with lettuce). If you love duck, don't miss it. It was delicious! We also had fried rice and noodles plus various small dishes to share. We thoroughly enjoyed our food. The service was slightly slow and they charged for... More

Last night's meal was an insult to yum char if you ask me. Tasteless and overpriced Chinese food. Worst thing was that half the menu was not available for us to order, disappointing us time and time again when we decided what to order. It was written on the menu that "the kitchen closes at 9.30 pm" yet at 8pm... More

Two private rooms and a decent large public dining room. The food is reliable and I've had loads of banquet dinners here. They never overcharge and guests always leave full and happy. They will design a menu to suit your budget. If you have Chinese guests, just let the restaurant know what regional style you want then to cook. They... More

Had Yum char here for dinner and food is good as usual. Friendly staff and attentive. Did not have to wait long at all. Highly recommended and will be back.

I got a takeaway from here while staying across the road. Ordered the satay chicken with rice and veg. Massive portion of rice with fresh veg and chicken but it just lacked the flavour you normally get with this dish. Cost around $17 so was on the pricer side too for this area of town. I would go back but... More

The vibe was a little bit dingy with plastic table wear and clunky thick chopsticks - but the food was pretty good and the food was reasonably priced.

This is my third time dining at China Yum Cha. My First and second experience was absolutely amazing! Great food and great service will always keep me coming back. However, this third experience was not as 'amazing'. From the moment we walked in I felt like there was a language barrier somewhere. There was a large group of us dining... More
