We go here regularly and always like the food. The staff are very good, although perhaps a little rushed at times, and manager is excellent. The pricing is good, and we have even taken away. The only downside here is that the variety of food for Yum Cha is not extensive, but in saying that, it is still one of... More

A large group of us went to North Sea Village today, our local Chinese cuisine spot. I actually used to frequent this establishment many years ago and always enjoyed it but hadn't been in some time. We had the yum char and it was the perfect choice for a work day as the food rolled out quickly. At no time... More

We have visited few yum cha places in auckland and this one is definitely the worst ! They serve leftovers fron yesterday's yum cha and they serve the smallest dumplings I have ever seen yet at the higher price ! I just couldn't believe the size of the dumplings was almost invisible. I will never go back and I honestly... More

We had intended to try a new Chinese restaurant in the area for yum cha today. However, as it was empty we decided to return instead to this restaurant where we had had good experiences before. But whereas in the past it was extremely busy and difficult to get a table, this time it was only half full. Obviously it... More

Have had yum cha here on numerous occasions and found it quite good relative to other yum char establishments on the North Shore. Last night however we decided to eat here for dinner, simply because they had Peking Duck on the menu which is one of our favorites. Turned up at about 7pm. About half the tables were occupied so...

I am dining here at the moment and the service I have received is very disappointing! It's that bad I have given up eating and writing this review!

Very little love shown in the food and service. Cheap and nasty. We definitely won't be back anytime. Staff very disorganised, food below average.

Been there for lunch (Yum Cha). The place wasn't crowded and the food was good, maybe not many options for vegetarians. One of the waiters didn't speak english very well but we understood each others. want to come back!
