We use to frequent this restaurant every time we visited Byron Bay and we have eben left a 5 star review in the past, but sadly after this experience we won't be coming back here. We waited over 2 hours for our meals, the wait staff were lovely and cheerful and kept telling us our meals were on the way... More

A good selection for all dietary requirements and the staff were helpful and friendly. I had pork belly one night and it was nice we visited the next night and I had... More

We stumbled across this place when looking for somewhere to eat with a small baby. The staff immediately found us a quiet table and seated us. From that point it just got better, an extremely varied menu featuring dishes from all over Asia, good cocktails and wine, really friendly, informative service all backed up with very tasty and delicious food....

Our Accommodation mentioned this to us as a place to try, they were not wrong. Great service, which started by the staff mentioning the size of each dish is very generous. Not wrong there. We saw other dishes coming out, so decided on 3 entrees. Dumpling specials.. duck pancakes and sang choi bau... fantastic . Definitely book here as very... More

3 of us went here on our recent trip to Byron Bay. For each dish we were impressed by the quantity and the presentation. But unfortunately the food itself was disappointing. It was bland, tasteless and totally unmemorable. The one dish we all liked was the Rendang. The one dish we had to send back - most amazingly - was... More

we eat Yum Char here every Friday... Chef Tippi Heng never lets us down....Blizzard Cold Tiger beers and chefs hand made dumplings are to die for... great value for money too. Dinner is an even more a special treat for us as locals we can keep away from this place -

Being a local I have been many many times to this restaurant. It had always been so good, but last time I went there it was terrible. I will go back and try it again sometime but am so disappointed when a really great place suddenly for some reason goes downhill. I really hope this was just a bad day... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hosts at Revelwood Retreat and did not disappoint. Very busy night but we were seated on arrival at our booked table in the outside area. Service was very efficient although the food took a while to arrive (because it was so busy). No problem as we were given a complimentary salad to... More

Had duck pancakes for entree, scallops and pork, and red curry snapper. Very tasty food, huge servings and friendly service. Best Asian food I have had for awhile.

We experienced the orient express last night, the food was sublime, the service was friendly but so alike to faulty towers...we enjoyed the very large servings and the depth of flavours. The crusted squid, dumplings and duck pancakes were perfectly executed. For mains the highlight was the red snapper curry , delicious and so moorish. The singapore noodles were great,... More

Modern Asian cuisine at its finest. Dinner every night and Yum Cha for lunch on weekends. Great selection of teas and wines, hand picked to complement the food. A necessary experience in Byron Bay.
