Booked the restaurant for 12 pm on a Sunday - usually a busy time for Chinese restaurants given the popularity of Yum Cha. The Ding Hao is no exception. It was busy and a bit of squeeze. However, the service was fast and efficient. We...More

There is no better Yum Cha in the southern hemisphere than the Ding Hao. Every dish was perfect and piping hot. Especially excellent were the chickens feet and the king prawn dumplings but every other dish was excellent as well. I have eaten Yum Cha...More

Worth the line up for Sunday yum cha, but my tip for larger groups is to book or get there for the first seating early at 11am. A wonderful choice of foods and honestly not too expensive.

The dishes I had at Ding Zhao were outstanding. The steamed dim sims had great flavour and texture and the sizzling pepper steak was excellent, but my favourite was the fried rice......the best I’ve had in a long time.

Very busy Sunday yum cha but we’d booked a table and were taken straight to it on arrival. Staff members were friendly and happy, even though under pressure. Any requests for extras were attended to immediately. Continual stream of food selections – the steamed dumplings...More
