Went for yum Cha to give this place a second chance after going five years ago and not much has changed... probably go back in another five years when I forget how average it is.

Some of the best salt and pepper squid I've had in a long time. A very enjoyable lunch. And good service today. Would recommend.

Went here for a family get together with about 12 of us. Although we ended up with water and glasses on the table and with Tea and cups we had to keep prompting the staff to deliver these. Sad because the food was okay and we had a good time.

We were a large group of work friends and there was another large table of workmates at another table which is always challenging. The service wasn't brilliant but not terrible either and I chalked it up to the large group and noise form the two groups. I think for yum cha for a group it is better to nominate one... More

As former long-term Canberra residents, we returned expecting the same high quality we had experienced in the past. The greeting was luke-warm and non-attentive, but later, staff who remembered us turned up and the quality of service improved. The food was fairly ordinary, and towards the expensive end when compared to pricing in Melbourne and Sydney. It seems they are... More

I love this yum cha place a lot more than when it was doing the all your can eat. Very authenticated. They could hire more staff. Very happy to recommend and go back.

We went for Yum Cha with friends, but can't see we will ever come back. The food was okay, but the service was simply terrible. It took nearly two hours, asking five times and conversations with three different staff before one of our party finally got the one dish he asked for. The Yum Cha came slowly and lacked the...

This is their latest deal which suits couples on their way home from work. We said we would have the Yum Cha deal for $30 per person and a steady stream of delicious options appeared on our table. There were lots of steamed dumplings, deep fried calamari, steamed greens, pork belly and BBQ pork buns. The house white wine was... More

This is my family's top favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner in town. We like the Belconnen lake side setting with free and easy parking. The restaurant menu offers a wide range of dishes. The ginger shallot mud crab on noodle base as well as steam fresh fish are always our favourite dishes.
