We have been past this place many times and it is always packed. We went in for just a small lunch time snack. Again, the place was packed but it was noticeable that the place is in need of some updating and a good scrub. There was a menu, but we opted to take the passed small plates. What a... More

Nice selection of the usual steamed as well as fried foods. Good attentive service. Eggplant tasty.We were at the 1pm sitting so there didn't seem to be quite as much variety as usual. No chickens feet or deep fried pork with glutinous rice balls. Still very good though and still one of my favourites for yum char.

A group of 6 of us went to the Grand Century yum char Chinese restaurant in Tory Street on a Sunday morning. The place was already full at 11:30am, and it was fortunate we'd made a booking. Staff brought food around on trays - not trolleys, so this meant you were rather limited in your choice - take the food... More

A restaurant where one can find a good range of tim sum n Chinese dishes. Delicious n service by the lady boss is excellent. Need to book a table in Wei ends for tim sum or else, you probably would have to wait for a table.

Preordered food was their roast duck and roast crackling pork with chow mein made with crispy noodles. All fantastic as always.Excellent selection and we were able to ask specifically for the chickens feet and beef tendons as they... More

Went for Yum Char on a Saturday made sure we booked first as it can get very busy in the weekends. There were 7 of us dining. We had more than enough to eat and paid around $16 a head which was a bargain! The only downside was asking over 4 times for water before we eventually got it! But... More

Not a very good experience. Started out with a lovely chicken and corn soup but the mains we had were tasteless and uninspiring. Won't be going back.

This place really does ok yum cha but any other time of day or night its serving Overpriced, large dishes, thats pretty standard. One highlight was the microwaved BBQ Pork. It was so chewy and curled up we couldnt eat it. Nice staff though. Hope they can improve!
