Been here for a few yum chas n dinners.
Very polite waiters and waitress.
Dishes came out really fast. Steamed prawn rolls were really nice with something crispy insude served with peanut and hoisin sauce. waitress couldnt explain what it was in English to us. The chicken feet was nice stewed in peanuts, I think they were intrigue with European wanting to eat Chicken feet. SiewMai dumplings were beautiful n so were the Prawn HarKow. The standard is good.

Well recommendedfor Akld

This restaurant hosts the New Zealand Chinese New Year dinner. Big enough for a big dinner, private rooms. Dish sizes very generous. I also went for a Dim Sum lunch. I made no reservation, and there was seating without waiting.

We visited this restaurant fort Yum Cha. As is usual for Yum Cha, instead of ordering from a menu, the waiting staff brought out the dishes in carts and you picked the ones you want. The selection is pretty standard for yum cha, although we were a little disappointed that they did not bring out deep fried squid; although we did not ask as there was ample selection available.

Food wise, pretty tasty, standard yum cha quality. There weren't anything we didn't like, but there weren't any standard out dishes as well.

Atmosphere: well, pretty standard yum cha restaurant that tries to squeeze in as many tables as they possibly can. Quite often the servers were jammed because there is only room for one cart between the chairs. Definitely not for the claustrophobic..

Service: It seems like none of the servers speak English. Communications can often be difficult, and it seems like they only memorise English words that somewhat describe the dishes, like "pork" or "fish ball" but are unable to otherwise engage in meaningful conversation. Best to avoid if you are not familiar with yum cha dishes.

Price: As is common practise with yum cha places, none of the dishes are priced. When you order one, the server marks on a card the price code of the dish. When you are done, you take the card over to the cashier and be surprise one way or another.

To summarise, if you do not mind cramped quarters, and are already familiar with what you would be ordering, then this place is certainly worth a visit.
