Spicy Ginger advertises all you can eat yum-cha, however this is not true, as my wife and I went for all you can eat, but after 11 (average size yum-cha) dishes, the staff completely ignore you and stop any kind of table service. Funnily enough,...More

A welcoming restaurant with friendly service. However, the food was very average. I ordered Xiao Long Bao and Stir fried potato strips. The pastry of the Xiao Long Bao was thin but the filling was a bit too dry. The Stir fried potato strips was...More

Table service was fantastic, food was yummy, and there was lots of it. I couldn't fault the yum cha selection and the atmosphere was fantastic. What more could you want!

Yum cha at Spicy Ginger was good value and service was good. The dumplings and pork buns were also good but the fried dishes - calamari and chicken were greasy and not very appetising. Consequently we ate greens, dumplings, shallot pancakes and pork buns.

$22 all you can eat. Good, yum, service, nice, friendly staff, would you like more Sir? Great place in the city to grab fresh YumCha. Not sure why I didn't know about this one.
