This restaurant has been on Gold Coast since the 80's & has always been good for quality Chinese food. A thumbs up!

Have been coming here for years for the Yum Cha. It is consistently good and at a reasonable price. The decor is quite dated now but that actually adds to the experience as there is a sense longevity. They used to be to only place offering Yum Cha on the Gold Coast and they have stuck to the winning formula.

I have been coming here since the 80s. For better or worse, not much has changed! The over the top decor has become so out of date that it is now cheekily retro! You won't get a bad meal, but more educated Chinese pallets looking for any regionality to the food will be disappointed. This is a walk down memory... More

We had a craving for Yum Cha so did a Google search and found this restaurant open at the time of our craving (ALL others closed). Took a chance, drove the 25 mins to get there and it paid off! They have a decent selection, fresh made off the menu, and all 5 dishes we tried were delicious. The decor... More

We ordered takeaway here while staying at a nearby resort because the menu read a bit like a mix of old school Australian Chinese takeaway favourites and more authentic things to try. Was not in the least bit disappointed, delicious tender beef, Singapore noodle and the great special fried rice favourite. All cooked up and ready to go, steaming hot,... More

Went with friends for Yum Cha. Usual selection of dishes which are of a high standard and service is good. Very busy on a Sunday. Definitely need to book ahead.

I have been going to this restaurant for more than 20 years, and I still think it is the best yum cha venue the coast has to offer. Prices are reasonable, and the restaurant often advertises 25% off in the Sun Newspaper, which makes it great value! The decor is traditional, the service is great and the food is excellent.

Thank Debra R
