I haven't been an aficionado of dim sum, only having it a few times in my life. My friend loves it and so after having a dinner here the first night we hit HCMC, we ventured here again for lunch before our flight home in the early evening. Set Dim Sum lunch is £468,800 including tea and a soft drink. Great choice but 'all you can eat' menu is a killer, £14 worth of food and drink with the small food mountain we tried to consume is very good value for money for a Londoner. I presume that proportionately it's pricey for HCMC but lovely air con and gorgeous toilets are the added bonus. I would say that whether you are going for lunch or dinner make sure you're hungry, I mean very hungry. We had had very little breakfast and were starving but soon got full and wondered how we were going to fit all the array of dim sum into our Buddha bellies - we managed it! Luckily we have 3 hours to digest this before our flight.

I am always weary of hotel restaurants but had been told that their Dim Sum was pretty good......it was not. Under cooked dumplings, burnt noodles, and lack lustre ingredients. Service was bumbling and inefficient. There only 5 other tables.
Sorry to be harsh I love my dim sum but this food was there worst take on it I have seen in ages.

We needed a night 'in', and opted to eat at Yu Chu. The staff had very broken English, so it took a few tries to get the order correct. We almost bought 2 full bottles of wine vs. a glass. They were very nice, so have patience. With all the other choices down stairs and around the hotel, this wouldn't be my first choice, unless you really just need a night in.

Wife not well so nipped out for a quick Hotel meal. Found Yu Chu and a great value but even better all-you-can-eat-&-drink meal. Go try this if you are hungry, thirsty and enjoy great dim sum!
