If ever you in the mood for something different for breakfast, pop in here on a Sunday for Dim Sum. Get there early, like about 10AM to secure a seat. Walk up to the serving area and order different dishes that are brought to your table with sauces and bottomless tea. Just about every dish was exceptional with a great... More

Great place, in the middle of Bruma. The restaurants serves only Chinese food which is very delicious. They operate in a quite unique way where there are tables where they bring various food contineously and you grab the one you desire, which gets added to your table's piece of paper :) But quite nice

Th highlight was definitely the sizzling chicken and salt prawns. They were both awesome! This restaurant is now licensed! It's pure Chinese through and through - service was good and there were loads of Chinese families enjoying dinner together which speaks volumes in itself about the food. A gem! Go if u love Chinese food, stay away if u are... More

Shun De is one of those restaurants because of its upstairs location can often be overlook. Situated in the heart of Johannesburg, in the middle of Derrick Street, Cyrildene, this is the place to be for sunday lunch Dim Sum. Go early at around 1100 before the madness starts and there you will have the best and choicest spread of... More

Best place for yum cha! Good food and service! Just need to go a bit earlier on a Sunday to get a seat as this place fills up quickly. Just wish there was more parking around!

If you want a taste of authentic dim sum (none of those deep fried spinach and cheese deep stuff), give this place a try. The waitrons speak limited English, but dishes are available in a central area for you to browse and pick. Just make sure the person standing behind the counter stamps your slip every time you select a... More

This was my first visit to Cyrildene even though I've lived in JHB for 17yrs. We chose this as place as tripadvisor had some good reviews. We found that the food was good but the service was shocking. My boyfriend ordered a beer which took over 40min to come with no one coming to the table to check if all... More
