    Completely different to any other dining experience I've had. I thought I would hate it but the abrupt service and fast pace is all part of the fun. Plus the food is excellent!

    My fave yum cha in the world! Everything is great but save room for mango pancakes from the dessert trolley 🍨

    One of the best places for yum cha / dim sum in the city, specially the varieties are top, quality could be better

    A classic yum cha institution, note there's a holiday surcharge if you're around during public holiday. Some #vegetarian dishes, ask about the sauce to double check.

    I personally like yum cha. I normally goes to this place if the Zilver get crowded. The food was good. Love the dinner also!

    Delicious Cantonese food! Try the duck hot pot for dinner. Service was usual, but got many tasty desserts to finish off the meal.

    Authentic Cantonese dim sum. Pretty empty on weekdays. Many push carts dim sum approaches our table. Recommended.

    Yes the staff are rude, but the mango pancakes alone make it worth putting up with. Hold on for a central seat.

    Skip the seasoned cuttlefish (top left in pic). It's rather hard. Dessert is so-so. Otherwise the other dim sums are generally good!

    Good food, but terrible staff manners. One of them gave us the impression that he didn't want to be there. The trick to get their attention and the service you want is by yelling at them

    Snow pea and prawn dumplings were great. So we're the mango pancakes

    Try not to get seated in a far corner. The yum cha carts rarely come to you and you end up with little selection.

    Yum cha restaurant is supposed to loud and unorganised. Don't expect to be treated like royalty and you will have a great time.

    Don't get there just before closing. They'll rush you to eat and you basically just get whatever is left over....

    Food didn't taste particularly amazing, service was actually quite poor, had to order 3 times before coke was delivered and we got billed 3 times for the one drink. NOT HAPPY!

    When we visited there were hardly any carts going round and the rude grunting from staff seemed a little less cute. The char siu was dry.
