Had the greatest feast of dumplings. I say this like a drunk white girl "SERIOUSLY" amazing food. Service was a little slow but it's Easter lots of people make sure you book a table so you don't have to wait

Booked by the Cullen Hotel the staff instantly showed us to our table and we had the best Chinese. Water was provided frequently, albeit at $6.00 each to start. Wine list was small and pricy but the food was exceptional

We saw this restaurant in our travel guide and went in without reservation. We had to wait 45 min to get seated, so we went out for a walk. Food was great and service quick! Nice dinner!

I took my wife here for lunch on a suggestion from a friend & i am glad i took their advice because this restaurant was amazing. I am not a big fan of dumplings so we ordered from the menu. I am a huge fan of Prawn Toast & this was by far the best Prawn Toast i have ever... More

This place is great, if you can overlook the always rude staff. Come here frequently for the food, as it's very good. Consistent in both areas: rude staff and awesome food.

We came here today at 2pm and we're offered the choice of all you can eat yum Cha or order off the menu. We chose all you can eat dumplings but we were left hugely disappointed. We got our first four dishes (dry deep fried prawns - obviously the leftovers from previous trolleys) we waited for more food and were... More

Attracted by the crowd and the fairly good rating we went in. Service is average the food was poor. Spring rolls too cooked and tasted bad - stirred fried noodles had no taste and the Peking duck was not even average... hated it all the way! And this for 82 AUD - Never again!

We would not have found this place without a friend recommending it to us - we are not generally people to walk down alley ways - but this is definitely worth the adventure! While downstairs you can watch the dumplings being made, upstairs is a great spot where the staff, while busy, can interact with you and keep the dumplings... More

Arrived for lunch on Valentines Day at 14:25 - said they wouldn't serve us even though the restaurant is open fur lunch until 15:00. Poor customer service and misleading information in relation to opening times.
