    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!

  • Dennis L.

    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

    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.

    TERRIBLE service! Staff are so rude,they brought the food out all scattered & we never got some of it. Thank god the food was amazing when we eventually got it or this place would be a total write off

    Sarah Jones · February 6, 2011

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

    hello_emily · February 28
  • Jonathan W.

    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!

    Jonathan W · June 29, 2014
  • Mar H.

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

    Mar Hug · December 25, 2014
  • R L.

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

    R Lee · August 29, 2012
  • Sarah Vy T.

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

    Sarah Vy Tran · June 18, 2014
  • Jen

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

    Jen · January 11, 2013
  • Dominic C.

    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.

    Dominic Carter · March 6
  • Lina Y.

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

    Lina Yippy · December 10, 2014
  • Paul F.

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

    Paul Farrell · April 4, 2015
  • Greg B.

    The dining room is beautiful & the service incredibly efficient. The yum cha is standard. Good not great.

    Greg Barila · November 1, 2014

    Try not to get seated in a far corner. The yum cha carts rarely come to you and you end up with little selection. · April 2, 2011
  • Bonnie L.

    Come here for overpriced yum cha, exceedingly poor service and if you like arguing about mystery items on your bill. Not impressed.

    Bonnie Leung · June 29, 2014
  • Sophie

    It can get busy, expect minor table delays and not so great table service. the only thing keeping me going is the food they serve

    Sophie · September 10, 2011
  • Brenton B.

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

    Brenton Bleechmore · September 19, 2010
  • Regina H.

    Chicken feet tasted bland, food that we did not ask for was given and they managed to get our orders wrong three times

    Regina Hong · June 28, 2014
  • Evgeny M.

    Rude staff, however, incredible yum cha. Want to highlight sesame mochi, no words can explain how good they are at Marigold.

    Evgeny M · April 2, 2011
  • Epodtronica

    Busy on sundays around the time when the Chinese church finishes.. better to go early, but not when it just opened.

    Epodtronica · February 4, 2010
  • Amanda L.

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

    Amanda Li · April 9, 2011
  • WH H.

    The beef offal (牛雜) is the best I've tasted in years!

    WH Ho · June 8, 2014
  • Aaron D.

    Food is good but the staff are rude. Only place I've ever been to that wants to charge for chilli sauce? Dreaming. I'm going to Dixon street.

    Aaron Dawes · November 5, 2011
  • Franck R.

    Vegetarian dumplings, scallop dumplings, all dumplings, mango pancakes!

    Franck Royer · August 22, 2014
  • Dimitri

    Great yum cha available at this enormous place. Very busy, noisy and fun.

    Dimitri · September 12, 2014
  • Lisa

    Yumcha goodness. Sticky pork ribs and black sesame dessert are highlights.

    Lisa · February 20, 2011
  • Liam N.

    Shocking service. "Get it yourself" is the response you get when asking for a glass of water.

    Liam Nguyen · August 5, 2011
  • Jo E.

    Finish off a yum cha lunch with the mango pancakes. These delicious packages of mango and cream are to die for!!

    Jo Espey · October 9, 2010
  • Marissa L.

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

    Marissa Looby · November 16, 2014
  • Hayley D.

    Double check your bill. They are notorious for adding on things you didn't order.

    Hayley Dean · September 19, 2010
  • J L.

    JUST BE CAREFUL TO NOTE WHAT YOU HAVE ORDERED FOR YUM CHA before the chop card is taken away from you.

    J L · December 20, 2015
  • LaMonte F.

    Incredible, incredible prawn dumplings. A perfect non-gluten lunch.

    LaMonte Fritts · February 21, 2013
  • Donn T.

    Get there early Sunday to avoid the line up

    Donn Tariga · June 13, 2014
  • Rommel M.

    Have the mango pancakes if they're available!

    Rommel Mallion · June 19, 2011
  • Amanda L.

    If you are desperate, take your stamp card and hunt down the prawn dumplings

    Amanda Li · April 9, 2011
  • Peter W.

    Giant old school yum cha in the city. Like stepping back into the seventies.

    Peter Wells · August 15, 2014
  • KaiAdin C.

    Try not to get stuck in a private room, its hard to get served there!

    KaiAdin Cooper · February 17, 2013
  • Brad L.

    Slow and rude staff. Great Peking duck though.

    Brad Luo · November 26, 2013
  • Cindy R.

    Make sure you can speak mandarin or you have a good body language! Lol

    Cindy Ramli Chang · July 15, 2013
  • Jess N.

    Try the Jellyfish with the Suckling Pig combination

    Jess Nichols · December 6, 2009

    Extremely frantic and very loud. Avoid if you have a headache! · April 2, 2011
  • Erietta S.

    all the yum chas are abandoning carts. not this one. trolley-tastic!

    Erietta Sapounakis · February 14, 2012
  • Elif D.

    No what they used to be, go for yum cha rather than al a carte

    Elif Durur · May 31, 2011
  • David B.

    Not the best yum cha in town, but it is convenient

    David Byrne · July 9, 2015
  • Jason H.

    I touched my junk with my chopstick... It may now be your chopstick.

    Jason Hoy · November 11, 2012
  • Lyssandro R.

    I love the food in here but the customer service is horrible.

    Lyssandro Reis · February 27, 2012
  • Rob S.

    Not good, in fact a very disappointing dinner... Will not return.

    Rob Stevens · July 12, 2012
  • Bruce B.

    Have salt and pepper squid, duck, mango pancakes.

    Bruce Balfour · March 3, 2012
  • Amanda B.

    Crispy Shantung Chicken - delicious!!
