It's not one of the cheapest yum cha restaurants in Sydney, but it is definitely one of the best. The friendly staff very frequently stopped at our table, each time with a wide range of different dishes. There was a bit of a wait for egg tarts, but the freshness of them was well worth it.
Had YUMCHA here and it was pretty good, the flavours are on point! No a lot of variety but make sure you get the roast duck, dumplings, prawn rice noodles and the chicken feet if you are into it. Avoid on weekends because they get extremely busy!
The food is average here. Maybe I'm just not a yum cha kind of person. The staff were a little pushy and almost over charged us for extra plates that we didn't have. It took 4 people to figure out who wrote down the extra plates that we never consumed and argued with each other whilst standing over the top of us. I might go back here again for Chinese dinner but not for Yum Cha.
Awesome restaurant to visit in Chinatown for Yum Cha or some special dinner with your family and friends. I went here for dinner the other day with my friends and it was a pretty good experience. Prices can be really expensive as dishes cost around $20-$30 each, but the quality and taste of the dishes are well worth it. In addition, the service and ambiance of this placeread more
