This place is great, if you can overlook the always rude staff. Come here frequently for the food, as it's very good. Consistent in both areas: rude staff and awesome food.

We came here today at 2pm and we're offered the choice of all you can eat yum Cha or order off the menu. We chose all you can eat dumplings but we were left hugely disappointed. We got our first four dishes (dry deep fried prawns - obviously the leftovers from previous trolleys) we waited for more food and were... More

Attracted by the crowd and the fairly good rating we went in. Service is average the food was poor. Spring rolls too cooked and tasted bad - stirred fried noodles had no taste and the Peking duck was not even average... hated it all the way! And this for 82 AUD - Never again!

We would not have found this place without a friend recommending it to us - we are not generally people to walk down alley ways - but this is definitely worth the adventure! While downstairs you can watch the dumplings being made, upstairs is a great spot where the staff, while busy, can interact with you and keep the dumplings... More

Arrived for lunch on Valentines Day at 14:25 - said they wouldn't serve us even though the restaurant is open fur lunch until 15:00. Poor customer service and misleading information in relation to opening times.

We were really hungry, so we tried the all "all you can eat". That was a big mistake. Why? Because all the good stuff wasn't on the all you can eat trolley. Dim sum is meant to be little parcels from the heart - but these we are bit too coarse and doughy, it lacked filling and therefore flavour. The... More

I dropped in here for a second time and wasn't as impressed as the first. We came at lunch time, and they were doing a $30 all you can eat trolley service arrangement. We opted to just eat off the menu, as the things I wanted to eat weren't included in the offer. I thought the service was poor compared... More

I visited here for am early dinner. Excellent attentive service, and very very high quality dumplings. The whole restaurant seems very well run, waiters seem perfectly trained to act with just the right balance of attentiveness/ friendliness and respect. Yes, great food presented in a very professional and polished manner. Many thanks!
