After reading few reviews and recommendation for a friend we gave it a go. We had ordered Cantonese duck roast , crispy chicken skin and special fried rice. The duck was really amazing, it was juicy and crispy on the outside with just enough amount...More

Average yum cha and dinner. But their seafood CNY (Chinese New Year) banquet is very good. Had the similar banquet over the years and I must say it is probably the best in Adelaide.

been coming here for years. Always outnumbered by local Chinese people which I always find reassuring . great for big groups of people and food always fresh and tasty. Chicken feet and steam chive and prawn dumplings particularly good.

Sunday family lunch. Booked ahead which is important. Shown to table promptly by friendly staff. The resturant was packed. Food started arriving immediately we sat down. Lots of choices, and most dishes we ordered were fantastic. Limited wine list. Reasonable pricing. Highly recommend

This place is terrible. I couldn't believe my experience. The description of the dish in the menu did not match the actual dish that came out. Among a number of issues, it was covered in bok coy, which I can't eat but there was no...More

We felt like we had walked through a doorway into China with the atmosphere and service, and the yum cha was delicious. We ordered 4 dishes between the two of us and that was more than enough for lunch. The other patrons were all mainly...More
