I have written a few reviews on Yum Cha restaurants around the world and this is by far up there with the rest. My normal disappointment is the overwhelming disgust with what tastes like wholesale purchased frozen dumplings etc. The Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Restaurant did not disappoint in that it was clearly home made, on the spot and very delicious....

Wouldn't come here on my own, this was my brother's suggestion A large chinese seafood restaurant on top of the fish market at pyrmont. Misleading name as fisherman's wharf is at darling harbour instead The dim sum is average to good. Nothing fancy but nothing bad tasting. The seafood is very expensive. Mud crabs at AUD70 each , stone/king/snow crabs... More

The food is okay here, and the ladies pushing the trollies for Yum Cha, delightful, so it is most disappointing to report, but when I'm 60 cents, yes, 60 cents short on a spend to enable parking validation after frequenting the restaurant every couple of weeks, forget it! Very, very disappointing to say the least, even when pointing out to... More

We arrived at around 11:30 and were seated immediately. The yum cha was just okay, but seafood seems fresh as expected. We also ordered lobster and it was cooked nicely with the noodles. I wasn't very happy with one of the waiting staff. The elderly waiter was very inpatient and rude even when there's not many customers around. It seems... More

Pros Big place so you can get a seat reasonably easily but come by 12 pm to ensure you do not have to queue at lunch time. Very good range of yum cha offerings - with seafood being a speciality - unsurprisingly always fresh. My boys love the noodles and pork buns while we enjoy the prawn and garlic chive... More

Went here for lunch in June - the weather was unbelievable and rain coming down sideways - we were happy to be out of the rain. The restaurant was very busy and we were seated along way away from the entry. The dumplings were quite nice, the scallop and prawn dumplings especially enjoyable. Some of the dumplings seemed a little... More

This restaurant has the best yum cha that I have had in Sydney. The food was fresh and the variety is fantastic. They had lobster in the shell and also crab that was simply delicious. The dumplings were also great and came in a variety of flavours. Their pork belly was soft and very tasty. Cant wait to go back.... More

We had a light lunch, all of it deep fried. Long queues, be prepared to wait. Crowded, messy. At least the food arrived hot. Was edible but unless you want to eat a lobster salad at $50 for half or a mayonnaise soked seafood salad, it will be fried.
