We were there for a family Birthday yum cha party one Sunday lunch. We were there for the 11 am session. Food was good and delicious. Nothing special. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. There was a $9 surcharge for serving the Birthday cake and that was reasonable enough. Had a great family gathering without washing up and cleaning. Recommended... More

Was brought here by a friend and surprised to note a time limit was clearly specified. Understandable as it is a matter of supply and demand. From yum cha's viewpoint, the standard of food is average from our experience of eating at different cities in Australia and other parts of the world. However, I do note it has many good... More

Have been here many times but service has gone downhill. Had to wait for our table long after the confirmed booking time as they seemed to have stuffed up the reservation. Given a makeshift table with chair added to the end. The main guy had no customer service skills and looked as if he didn't want to be there. Grumpy... More

This was our umpteenth visit here for yum cha and we were not disapointed. Calamari was wonderful. Pan fried pork dumplings good. Fried prawns amazing and the steamed bbq pork buns good. Lovely big chairs with plenty of space unlike some yum cha venues nearby where you have trolling bumping you and tables sitting on top of each other.

Went to this restaurant for the first time for lunch Yum Cha with friends. Have been to Yum Cha before but think this was the best one I have been too. Found it was no point talking to the ladies pushing the trollies as they spoke little English. You did have to find the right person to order drinks and... More

We arrived towards the end of the yumcha lunch session so understandably most of the dishes were no longer available. What we had were ok but they were really not special - perhaps the other dishes would have made for a different impression. The service was also typically one you'd expect from a Chinese yumcha place. Majority of the staff... More

We booked a group of six for Yum Cha at this restaurant. When we arrived there was a crowd at the front door and we could barely get inside. We joined onto the end of what looked like a queue and waited. There were no signs telling customers what to do, and no staff members close enough to ask,so we... More

Visited the restaurant for dinner on Boxing Day. It was packed but fortunately we had booked for our family of six. The service was a little slow probably due to staff spread thinly over several tables. The young female waiting staff was pleasant and helpful and tried to keep up with the demands of taking drink and food orders, serving... More
