Went with a family group for dinner on a Friday night. I love my Chinese food but have never tasted dishes as tasty as I had tonight. Not cheap but worth every cent.

China Plate is an absolute favourite because of the food. Service is excellent & location is good but the consistently good food makes China Plate a favourite go-to. Quality ingredients & good sized servings make China Plate great value for eat-in & takeaway.

We went to China Plate because it featured on Kitchen Cabinet (the TV show). The dumplings were great. I liked the scallop dumplings best. The staff were friendly and the prices reasonable. About $60 for two people with no drinks.

We've been many times for lunch and dinner but this was our first Sunday Yum Cha. They weren't serving pork buns because the rain apparently had an effect on them! Nonetheless, all the rest of the food was very tasty -- with the duck pancakes being the highlight. My go to for fresh tasting modern Chinese.

An excellent restaurant with great staff, food and location. The highlights were the duck pancakes and wasabi beef. No wonder this place is so popular.

Managed to sneak in a late booking for Father's Day lunch and were really happy with the food and service. The Yum Cha was delicious, there was great variety and it was really good value. Fab.
