Very crowded establishment and parking is not too easy to find, but the food is very good. Yum Cha is fairly dear. I took a group out for the night and everyone was happy with the quality of food and service.

All the dishes we ordered were of a good standard, the decor was typical trendy South Yarra, wine list was adequate, the staff were friendly but they forgot to bring out the last two dishes. Al least they were apologetic.

The staff and the surroundings were very pleasant but the food we ate was average.
We were a table of four and we ordered Dim Sum to share. The food that arrived was
of average taste and quality, however it was quick to come to the table. The main courses were also average. The shredded beef was tasty but very tough and the Calamari was not top quality. There are much better Chinese restaurants around Melbourne to go to.

Went there for the first time last week, and was so impressed, went back again a week later.

Could not recommend this place highly enough.

Their menu is a real twist on the normal dumplings, with some other amazing dishes available.

The food was sensational, but what set it apart on both visits was the waitress we had. If more restaurants had girls like this they would thrive. I didn't get her name, but i personally complimented her as we left.

Will definitely be going back.

The only downside, was the Salt & Pepper Calamari needed a bit ore kick to it, otherwise, it was sensational.
