Great find

Have been a couple of times lately with different friends and have really enjoyed both times. Don't expect too much of the service but the food more than makes up for it. Reasonable prices and large portions.

Popped in here after a movie and was happy with our choice. I LOVE yum cha and this is the first place I've tried in Tauranga as we usually head to Hamilton for yum cha. Not a huge yum Cha menu but enough to make your tummy happy. We had an assortment (this is why I love yum Cha) of... More

Lovely restaurant. We went for lunch and had yum Cha, but could have had a all you can eat option, but as I had never tried yum Cha went for this option, totally delicious and hot. Great selection of food. You choose how many of what dishes you want as they bring them out one at a time, lovely, lovely.... More

The restaurant has pretty decent yum cha (dim sum) dishes. We were there at 2.30pm and they were still open - which is great considering the rest of the Chinese restaurants around the area were already closed. We were the only ones there, and the lady (who we learnt later owned the restaurant) waited patiently on us. She recommended the... More

This restaurant specialises in Yum Cha food. The duck is amazing, all the Dim Sims are of good quality, you must try the veal ribs in pepper sauce. mmmmmmm service can be a little slow at times but worth the wait.

My partner and I decided to have dinner here. It was the worst mistake we could have made. There was absolutely no service and the basics of water on the table were unheard of. It was really disappointing as the food was amazing. It was fairly good value for money as our plates were full. The lady behind the counter... More

We went to an Older Gentleman's Birthday Party- 10 dishes very well cooked and presented. the Food was excellent in taste and appearance. Staff were friendly and efficient- nothing was too much trouble. The place was clean tidy and not at all noisy. Well recommended- particularly their Dim Sums lunches.

Group of 10 pre-booked. Took almost an hour to get any food - only when we asked did they tell us one of their stoves had broken. They could have told us at the start as we had limited time.
