We went for dinner after a long journey home from Warnanbool. Ordering and food were ok. It was a quiet night and after we finished, we were waiting for the table to be cleared and fruits and desert brought in. We signalled to a waiter and he cleared half the table and disappeared. We repeated the request to the other... More

Got to be the biggest venue in Preston .... 2nd floor, a little dim, not enough artificial and natural light. Havne't been there for dinner, not the worst but the least favourite Yunmcha place within the Gold Leaf group of restaurants.

I went to this restaurant for yum cha, because I had heard some good reports about the food from friends who had been some months before. I am usually wary of yum cha, because I have a serious allergy to crustaceans, but since my partner speaks Chinese, we figured that without the language barrier, we could effectively avoid dishes with...

The trolleys started coming thick and fast, the place was packed and quite noisy, not exactly clean, the toilet was... More

It was quite a big restaurant. We chose it for its location, convenient for our friends to get to and there was parking. The meal on the whole was all right. The duck was good and crispy. It wasn't a cheap meal.

Not the greatest experience, from being sat at an unlean table to waiters arguing and doing their best to ignore customer. Food was below average, the fish we had was super over cooked and the sauce insipid. Chicken was tough and best avoided. THe vegetable were the only higlight as they were fresh and well cooked - so maybe stay... More

I visited golden leaf on a family trip and was delighted to have gone. The food was authentic and enjoyable. It was great for the kids to see the waiters cutting up the duck next to your table and making peeking duck. It was an awesome experience, and the atmosphere was calm and authentic too, I recommend visiting.

Gold Leaf is a visually inviting restaurant, spacious with a distinctive Chinese feel as you enter. The staff are busy tending to the their guests and the place is a hive of activity. We were looked after by waiter Kevin who was extremely diligent with his work and helped make the drink and dinner service run smoothly. We settle for... More

First of all the floors are sticky. He them cleaned. Don't get Steve as your waiter, not sure what has to arrogant about, it isn't the Flower Drum.... two of the entrees turned up when they tried to serves the main meals, not good service.
