We love Yum Cha - in fact it is our favourite dining out experience ever!! We often try new places and most are great but the best value is by far is the mid week lunch dining here.. Set price is great for the familiy as we have 4 kids who all love it but it gets a bit pricey... The staff are always friendly, the drink prices are reasonable, the tea is fabulous too.... We will be back again next week with the kids to indulge, they are all very excited as we don't have Yum Cha in Albury... The only downfall is the parking, but we are training it down this time so it won't matter.

We come over from Scotland regularly and usually visit the Shark Fin Inn on Lt Bourke but this time, as we couldn't get a table we ventured onto Lonsdale and tried here. What a great alternative. The food is broadly similar to SFI but probably a little cheaper. We visited 3 times in 2 weeks but the big bonus was going midweek when we found you got an all you could eat menu for $16.80. Superb. They just kept coming by and offering what you fancied. Nice staff and the food was top notch.

A group of 5 of us visited for the set price yum cha lunch ($16.80pp). This included tea and as much as you could eat.

A wide selection of yum cha delicacies were on offer, and all were quite nice and tasty. Service on the day in serving food was very good and very frequent, however clearing of the table was a little slow. Food was of good quality and we would definitely eat here again.

The restaurant was very busy, but we could still easily have a good conversation as the dining area was separated with partitions and this seemed to dampen the volume. A good venue and good food. We will be back.

When in Melbourne, we rarely fail to visit Dragon Boat Palace. It has had a facelift in recent times but otherwise the place is pretty much just as its been for many years - we recognise many of the staff as long-serving, the food is always mouth-wateringly good, reaches your table quickly and you're never left waiting for any service. There may be more expensive Chinese restaurants in Melbourne and there may be some which win major awards, but we have no hesitation in going back to Dragon Boat Palace again and again.
