Purchased Groupon vouchers which reduced Yum Cha from $49 down to $19 fantastic bargain and delicious food. Positively would not have paid $49 but for $19 was worth it. Service a little too fast it was if they were trying to make us eat quicker...More

We thought we would get some nice dim sums in Chinatown, of all places! But this has got to be one of the worst, if not the worst, restaurants for dim sums. Also, we wouldn't mind paying the high prices (they were expensive!) if they...More

Dim sums are heavenly especially the chicken spring roll, prawn dumpling, glutinous rice wrapped in a lotus leaf, etc. All freshly made and serving portion is nice. As expected, a bit crowded and noisy especially we went in a Sunday afternoon. But would definitely go...More

A very disappointing visit. Each time I visit Sydney and I always go here at least once each time. Unfortunately over recent visits, the service (and food) has gone downhill. Today was no exception and I will probably never come back here again during future...More

If you are of Asian decent you got yum cha carts to your table. Us Caucasians sat here like idiots as trolley after trolley walk by like we weren't here. Not impressed at all and sad my sons saw this racism as well.

Has the same decor as soooo many Chinese restaurants here and overseas - that seems to be in the 80's - but who cares - is the food and here it is good. Service was good and attentive most of the time (a little slow...More

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the

Free Parking is not available. Off street parking is very limited because of road work. Car park around the area e.g Haymarket is not cheap but not expensive for Sydney.
