Our meal was pretty good.We had fish, chicken and cashew nuts, combination hot pot, Chinese veggies, eggplant dish, very succulent crispy chicken, a... More

Have been to this place several times for very ordinary smorgasbord lunch but dined with a group of 12 recently and we all ordered different dishes and shared and every dish was tasty and delightful. Yes the decor is dated and the atmosphere better when there are more diners as it is a large place. Staff are helpful.

Typical budget Chinese style restaurant most famous for its Yum Cha and buffet. Large sized restaurant, so can handle groups of any size, though decor is a little tired.

I like the yum cha here. All you can eat is 12.90 not too bad. Could do with a little spruce up as old tired looking. Great for big groups or two. Affordable menu. Caters for weddings and birthdays.

I took my grandma out for lunch one day here and the food wasn't as good as I expected. The food seemed like a couple days old and the atmosphere was very desolate.

This is our go to place for reasonably priced yum cha. Nothing special, just good old fashioned cheap eating. Friendly staff who are happy to get dishes you would like.

Good world is a very big restaurant that feels uncomfortable due to size and lack of diners. While the staff were friendly the food was less than spectacular for a Chinese eatery. However the cost was low to compensate.

The staff are very attentive with food being constantly refreshed, the dumplings and buns are very good. From chicken and corn soup , extensive "mains " selection and... More

We often meet up here with friends for yum cha. At around $10 head it is great value. Our favorites include the sweet pastries filled with minced pork, the spicy beef and peanut filled dumplings and the prawn and coriander dumplings. Yes it is very basic, but well patronized by the local chinese community.
