Arrived @10 am , we were seated immediately and order taken. Yum cha average to poor. Service non existent after initial order taken. So we went to leave. 'Boss' lady too busy barking orders at staff when we were looking for service, well that continued when we went to pay bill. Not interested in diners, well I would not recommend... More

Ok - I was a little concerned after reading another review of poor service - she obviously really ticked someone off as our experience was the opposite - a wave of the hand and the waiters snapped to attention and the grandfather actually generously rounded our meal down!!! :) :) totally recommend the crispy duck from the main menu and...

I love my Yum Cha but I must say this would be one of the poorest I've been to. Food was average. The surroundings and decor was ok There is a lot of choice in the valley and I won't be attending this establishment again

Always the best food. Head in early to make sure you get a full selection of all the carts. Do not miss if you're in Brisbane

The restaurant was hot... More

We have dined here several times over the years - usually for yum cha, and always enjoy the food. On this occasion we didn't arrive until almost 2pm but still, there was a huge variety of yum cha on offer - all freshly cooked & piping hot. Like most chinese restaurants, its busy, noisy and tables quite close together -... More

The food was cold & tasteless. I would never return. This would have to be the worst experience I have ever had

Greasy, strange, some dishes were covered in cheese! Nothing like any yum cha I've ever been to, simply dreadful and filthy.

Thank cheersgirl
