“One of the best yum cha's in Melbourne”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Great service and good food, especially the braised chicken feet and egg tart – highly recommended! Bookings should be made beforehand as the restaurant is packed everyday. Price is also considered reasonable for yum cha and we'll definitely come here for brunch often from now.

“Excellent Yum cha experience”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

This place was a really pleasant surprise.

Went down to Docklands for some shopping, and were looking for somewhere to eat. We saw this lovely decorated chinese place who looked like they were serving dim sum. We thought we'll give it a try..... particularly when we saw the number of chinese people.

We were there for lunch (around 11:45am). The service, food, decor and experience were exceptional. The next surprise was the bill..... we had a wide variety of plates shared between 2 and we only paid $55. Very good value for money.

Best yum cha experienceWould be be going back to this place for sure.

“Fabulous service and delicious food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We have eaten here a few times both Yum Cha and Al carte and enjoyed our experience each time. Fast and attentive service. Generous portions and authentic flavours. My only issue is the salt content. I guzzled water and many cups of tea during dinner, but was left feeling kind of hung over the next day with salt overload. Still I would go again.
