Overall I like the restaurant the decor. Yumchaa however was not served very warm at times so it's a bit hit and miss with your dumpling . When I was able to get the attention of staff they were very helpful and efficient but sometimes there was a problem getting the attention of staff. The à la cart menu items... More

We love Yum Cha and always try to get one feed when we go to the city but unfortunately we chose the wrong place. Service was good but very disappointed in the way the food was served (not kept hot in steamer) and the choice was basic.

We love Yum Cha and were keen to try somewhere new, but this place sadly disappoints. The food comes via a set menu, so the fun that comes from picking and choosing, a key element of the Yum Cha experience, was missing. First we had steamed dumplings, prawn and spinach followed by prawn and chives. The filling was fine but... More

We were surprised to find the all you can eat yum-cha only cost $20 per adult and $5 for our threenager. There were plenty of steamed and fried dim sum to choose from. Speedy and friendly services make it easier for us to choose it as one of our favorite places to go to for a casual yet satisfying lunch.

Yum cha at Spicy Ginger was good value and service was good. The dumplings and pork buns were also good but the fried dishes - calamari and chicken were greasy and not very appetising. Consequently we ate greens, dumplings, shallot pancakes and pork buns.

$22 all you can eat. Good, yum, service, nice, friendly staff, would you like more Sir? Great place in the city to grab fresh YumCha. Not sure why I didn't know about this one.

We enjoyed a steady flow of steamed dumplings, pork buns, fresh steamed green veg, deep fried calamari & deep fried chicken pieces, and an assortment of pan cakes. All very fresh and tasty. The tables were full and the group room hosted a seemingly endless stream of young children.

Real nice buffet yum cha for $22/pp. They also have ala carte if for whatever reason you don't feel like having yum cha. It's really nice food with good service.

There's heap to like about this place - lovely service, nice decor, $20 for all you can eat Yum Cha is incredibly reasonable. In terms of flavour, you get what you pay for - quantity over quality. That's not to say the food wasn't well prepared or was inedible by any stretch, just that the restaurant needs to make a... More

A small group of us went on a Sunday for lunch time all you can eat yum cha. The restaurant was pretty busy on arrival, but quietened down swiftly. We had quite a long wait before we were served drinks, and an even longer wait for some yum cha to arrive. Most of the time we weren't able to choose... More
