We had lunch . Ordered Yum Cha. Very disappointed. Only 2=red wines available by the glass to choose from. (The water nice and cold) Lovely decor but sadly the food didn’t match it. We are regular diners around Launceston but won’t be back here.

Of the 13 people in our group, not one person enjoyed their meal. Salty, ridiculously expensive and mostly deep fried. Very disappointing.

Came in at 6:30, entrees came out at 6:50, mains started at 7:15 through to 7:45, which required 4 reminders to the staff that we didn’t have half of the ordered items. Food that did come out was cold, spicy when it said mild, mild...More
