What a fantastic feed, we had four dishes between us, rice, pork buns and two types of dumplings. Everything was delicious, they have a lot of chefs working non-stop in the kitchen, so all the food is prepared fresh when you order it. The restaurant always seems full, but the service is very efficient and the turnover of customers is... More

We love this place. Its always busy. The service is fast. Watch the line of people outside on a Friday evening. Recommend the Lamb and Leek Dumplings - fried, flat rice noodle with chicken and the shallot pancakes (spring onion pancakes) are the best!

This restaurant always full packed most of the time. Service was quick and food was excellent. Love the pan fried pork buns. If you can't wait for the queues please consider take away. One of my fave Chinese food restaurant in Sydney.

Popped in here for lunch the other day, it was busy but only waited 5 mins for a table. We had Prawn & Yellow Curry fried rice which was really nice but not shy on the MSG I felt, we also had a hoisin pork and steamed dumplings dish which was ok until the dumplings cooled down and hardened and...

Good food but the queue for a seat is ridiculous. You get a number when waiting but they will skip right pass you on a table your size. Weird. I don't understand the logic. It's a long wait for food, a very long wait. I won't return. The wait on a table and service isn't worth it. Ashfield has a... More

We visited on a Friday night and so had to wait for a table but it was well worth the wait! Service was fast and the food was fresh and really tasty. Loved the Xiao Long Bao and the Spring Onion Pancakes. Can't wait to go back!

The food is worth the wait. Don't let the line outside deter you. We arrived after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. We had 14 numbers ahead of us. 22 minutes later we were seated at a clean table with menus. The maitre d is so lovely, professional as are all the staff. We ordered way too much food for 2... More

Good place for a lunch or dinner, the tables are not sectioned off, some communal. Always busy all days of the week, so not as quick if you're after an in and out feed. The pan fried dumplings are a must, actually all the dumplings you can't go wrong. Would get a lot of dishes to share rather than select... More
