Nothing to be raved about. It's ok if you are not looking for authentic yum cha restaurant. There is also not enough variety. Where's the chicken feet??

we had the new yesr's eve dinner over there and were very dissapointed... Relaying on the previous opinions expected the higher class of service and food. Probably because of lack of the space we got a spare table that wasn't even stable, didn't have the only one waiter what was confusing . The meals weren't served for me and my husband at the same time- absolutelly unforgivable!! And the worst- for the meal that costs over $50 none of us was happy of. Deffinitely visit the other much nicer fine restaurants at Southbank. Not recommended at all!!

Had a birthday function here recently for 8 people for the first time since they changed location at Southbank. From what I recall of previous visits the food has always been great. But let's face it any decent Chinese restaurant should be able to make decent Chinese food.. What really sets this place apart is the service. Welcoming, friendly, very attentive and even interactive when you want them to be. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

I went here for a work dinner and was a little sceptical about the choice as memories of gluggy sweet and sour pork from childhood had put me off chinese for a long time. We arrived and were warmly greeted by Raymond who recognised one of our group as a regular. The service was fantastic, very old style attention to detail. Our shared banquet was served at the table by Raymond using silver service and our wine glasses were never empty. We had some delicious Peking duck pancakes - beautiful light pancakes. A very impressive dinner in a lovely setting.
