This place is always busy and has a great Cantonese menu. The yum cha is always tasty and available till 5pm. Worth a visit

Three of us went for Yum Cha. We stuffed our faces with the usual delicious buns, dumplings, dim sums, etc. However, the yam bun/dumpling was out of this world.

Food was reasonably priced. Shared Banquet A between the four of us which was more than enough food. Staff were friendly and food came out quick and was very tasty. No split bills was a downfall but overall a true enjoyment.

In a street full of wonderful Chinese restaurants this one is just way too expensive. The food was average to small in size and very Australian Chinese. Better place to eat than this one.

This is considered a high end Chinese restaurant selling high end seafood. I would expect service to be good, but was disappointed. To be fair food was slightly above average but expensive.

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

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
