We had lunch at Soy yesterday. We did not have the Yum Cha but a banquet meal $29,50 each there where four of us in the group with drinks extra. This consisted of entree platter, chicken and sweet corn soup, two main meals, Fried Rice. Food was quite good but I think Chinese tea should have been included in the banquet this cost was extra, no prawn crackers given to us. The food was good but quite pricey, desert was extra, we had gourmet ice cream which was $7.50 a serve of two scoops and nothing else. It was also very noisy. The Green tea ice cream was very powdery and not nice.it needs acoustic ceiling tiles or something as when there are a lot of people it is more like a food court atmosphere than an expensive restaurant. I would say the food is better than the average chinese local restaurant but not that much better to warrant the prices charged, or the noise. I think it would be awhile before we go back again.
The other bad thing is the restaurant is upstairs with no other entry so disabled people cannot go there.

We kept expecting more from Soy. It looks good, the menu looks good, it is a BYO (a big positive in our books!) but after our 3rd visit we have finally decided we will not be back! Food is very ordinary, very similar to the Chinese $10 plate from a Food Court but much much more expensive. Our waitress was very nice but our table was at the entrance and was a very busy spot, constant traffic and the restaurant is very noisy. We gave it a chance...but we won't be back.

This is a clean friendly ok restaurant , little noisy but comfortable. Good decor with outside balcony. Food was standard chinese fair and not much else . The service on the night was good and quick. Pricing is a bit expensive for standard food . We will go again to try yum cha .

Party of 13 and if not for the company we would have walked out.My husband had beef on skewers and could not eat them as they were tough.I had honey prawns and at least 3 had not been defrosted properly.They also do not have split bills which makes paying very hard.We were told we were $17 short when we all sat and added up our own meals and paid accordingly.All in all very disappointing.Another couple with us had the banquet for two and they could not eat all of it as the chicken and beef skewers were tough.Will not recommend it.
