I've been going here for twenty years now. I often wondered why the trip advisor rating showed the same as other places I've also been that are nowhere as good. Ignoring by philosophical view on them serving sharks fin soup, the rest is fab. The Yum Cha is really popular and busy. Prices are fair, service is efficient, not overly... More

We went to the Dragon Boat to celebrate a birthday. The location is really good and the service as well, but the food wasn't tasty (especially the sea food). The table was covered in bubbles and wasn't even, which made it difficult not to spill your glass. Over all, it was an average experience but it's definitely not a place... More

Fair to say this was an average experience overall. The food was nice enough, some would say overpriced for what it was, but we all left with full stomachs. Service was good and prompt. The main appeal for us (as out of towners) was seeing a place with ample seating and cover.

Yum Cha was the order of the day for a quick and tasty lunch. The restaurant itself was a little quiet but this was great for the service and availability of dishes! Prawn and Coriander dumplings were great as well as the Roast Duck but some of the other dishes were wanting a bit. Shumai tasted a little odd, almost... More

This is by far the best Chinese food you ever find in Auckland. I was really taken aback by the authenticity and its range of cuisine. They must have a couple of Iron Chefs in the kitchen. Later I discover they are part of the same wonderful dragon Boat Chain of restaurants in Melbourne.
