Inattentive staff usually leads to disappointing service and so our experience was. Food ingredients were good quality but the cooking lacked inspiration and the menu was far from exciting. Not sure I would go back.

Served off travelling carts around the restaurant, dim sum was tasty. Lots of variety, although all very traditional (no modern fusion stuff here!). Place is popular- you should definitely book. Time limited tables - place was completely full with a queue when we left. Food...More

Quick service with not much waiting for trolleys with continually refreshed food to come around. Good selection, normal variety of yum cha. Good value for money for yum cha, fairly large portions.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
