Had yum Cha this morning with friends from Canberra. My friend wanted rice, so we ordered the steam pork ribs with rice. The dish arrived and literally looked rice rice chucked in a metal pot with a dish of the steamed yum Cha pork ribs chucked on top. We did not enjoy the food and when I commented to the... More

I had been told about this place on my last trip to Sydney, that I must try there yum cha, well I took their advised and I could honestly say that I had much better yum cha elsewhere..

Away from the over crowded city and shopping centres this yumcha restaurant at North Ryde RSL is pretty much a local's secret. With a mix of clientele you know it's gonna be good and they serve classics like siu mai, har gau and A variety of cheungfun loved by all. For the vegetarians you can order whatever you want -...

We come here often for yum cha and dinner - special occasions, casual and business lunches or dinners, etc. Great quality of food and service. Big dinner servings. Helpful and friendly staff. When the family feels like takeaway Chinese, there's no second thoughts about ordering our dinner from here.

Unfortunately we expected a nice yum cha today, but it ended up a very ordinary yum cha. There were only 2-3 trolleys around and not much variety of food. We ordered what we wanted from the trolley ladies. They hardly smiled and the front lady was not better, no smile. Hello, are we coming to pay for all these no... More

Staff were rude and the service for drinks was barely non existent - we event went downstairs to a Bar to get our own drinks. Meals were only just warm when served and the dessert... More

After we ordered our first dish, he said in cantonese : "it took 30 minutes for you to decide, i thought you are going to order something big!"...and when we ordered steamed scallops, he said "this...

if you want the traditional yum Cha experience this is not the place for you. It's spacious, good price and you get reasonably polite service. It's great for our work lunch functions. Favourite dishes which are the best I've tasted include the salt and pepper tofu, steamed broccoli, pork buns, steamed pork dumplings and the mango pancakes are to die... More
