For the price, the soup dumplings and pan fried pork buns were above average. That's where the compliments end. I ordered their special noodles: just appalling, flavour free cold noodles ( not in cold dish list) with no meat etc. it was sparsely scattered on the plate. We were thankful it was a small serve. (Table next to us received... More

Have been to this restaurant many times. The dumplings here are the best. I have never been disappointed by any dish I have tried here. First come , first served, so a bit of a wait for a table at peak times. You do need to get the waiters attention to take your order but once your order is taken... More

Not bad. pretty decent. But I believe it is pretty pricy to a certain extend for the quality and service.

Yummy food! Nice Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. Authentic taste preserved, generous amount served. Certainly one of the better place for authentic chinese cuisine

Lemongrove Arcade is not a fancy destination in Chatswood but for tasty Shanghainese food it is well worth a visit. The selection of dishes is extensive and the portions huge. As there is often a line, it may take a while to be seated but once you order the food is delivered at lightning speed. Good food, good prices and... More

Love this restaurant if I'm going with a larger group as getting a variety and being able to share is what it's all about here. Recommend the dumplings and the drunken chicken with soba noodles, also the tofu is really yummy.

We ordered a pork belly steam Bau which was pathetic and bland and... More

Great selection of Chinese food including Dim Sum and dumplings that are freshly made. This place is always busy with a long queue - for good reasons. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.

Food has been quite consistent, the only problem was that the pastry for the wonton was too thick. However, I was very concerned about the staff's attitude. I saw a waitress wiping a table. All she did was using the cloth to wipe around. There were a fair bit of food scapes around and they were all left there. A... More

This used to be an old favourite so when I asked why the food wasn't as hot or as tasty as usual - their answer was 'sorry but we have many shops now and we changed our menu for Westerners'. Not worth the 45 minute wait anymore.
