Once again we had yum cha and really enjoyed the excellent food, great service. Plenty of courses being offered frequently, and green tea topped up regularly. We have tried Yum Cha in many cities but always find this to be the best.

I took a group of 5 for lunch on Saturday. The restaurant was busy but only about half full... it is a BIG place! We have had Yum Cha at most places it is offered in Wellington, and have also tried it Hong Kong and Shanghai. This was the best range of food, delivered regularly and in variety, that we have enjoyed anywhere! The Rice Ball and Greens would have been better if offered earlier, but really that was just a matter of luck, as there is a huge variety of fried and steamed dumplings and special dishes such as crispy skin pork. Also a good range of sweet things,
The green tea is very pleasant.
And when I settled the bill I was happy to find that it cost less than $20 per person.. GREAT value! Recommended!!

Sunday lunchtime Yum Cha is clearly an institution here with the restaurant packed with families, tourists and students. The food, mainly dumpling based, was great. The key is to listen carefully to the succession of dishes offered and not be afraid to decline any. We opted mainly for the seafood based dumplings which were delicious, in particular the scallop version which was memorable.
The service broke down when we tried to order some steamed bok choi to complement the dumplings. The greens were requested twice before they eventually arrived at the end of the lunch and for which $9 was added to the bill. I very much got the feeling that the staff prefer you either to have the Yum Cha or order just from the menu.
This aside, a great experience with good food and well recommended.

Enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the Grand Century. we enjoyed a wide variety of dishes from Blue Cod (my favourite dish) to different vegetable courses. The food was tasty and well presented. Local wine proved to be the perfect complement to the food. The staff were friendly and attentive. A great night shared with a group of friends.
