“Overpriced”
Reviewed 12 November 2016

Find the chinese food expensive and the portion too small! The restaurant has verh strong lights which made the place very hot! The waiter was also confused with our orders and did not place our happy hour drinks order in time and made us pay double for it!

“Good vibes average food”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 via mobile

Modern dim sum place with stylish decor and gimmick dishes where dim sum dishes are available at night as well and they have a grwat variety from appetizer, main to desserts.Overall its a great place for friends gathering or meals with kids and take some instagram worthy photos only if im nearby.
food-wise...The Appetizer cold dishes were good. The soup in young coconut was lukewarm to borderline cold when they served it which was quite unacceptable and a big turn off as obviously they just reheat the soup to order but the heat only reach the outer shell of the coconut but not the soup.

The cute custard bun was way too sweet and more condense milky than custard taste.

Other dishes are average.

“Piggy dinner ”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 via mobile

As soon as I saw the little piggies I knew I needed to visit Yum Cha!

It's safe to say I ordered way too much food for two people! The portion sizes don't look that big, but when you out everything together, it's extremely filling.

It was a nice novelty dinner but it was quite expensive. The food was very high quality and the venue was also very nice, however, I still felt it was a little over priced.

“More style over substance ”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 via mobile

We visited the newly opened Central branch for brunch one Sunday in September with a group of friends. Dim sum was pretty average but presentation was very nice. It was definitely overpriced for what you are getting. The pineapple cakes shaped like birds were hard and nothing special in terms of taste. The mango sago was average but underneath a blue candy floss which looked nice. In summary, this place is comfortable and service efficient, but if you are after decent dim sum, go somewhere else. If you are looking after average dim sum served in an unusual way and are the kind of person who values style over substance, then come here.

“The waitress did not know the promotion at all...”
Reviewed 20 October 2016

Got an offer to book a table through its specific link for buy-1-get-1-free on main course (Tue), however the waitress just did not know of it and asked several times (back and forth) to her supervisor. A disappointing experience.
