    For some odd reason my reservation through thefork didn't go through (I made it a few weeks in advance). Was a bit pushy with letting us in even though the restaurant was half empty (for the entire time we were there). With that said, after we got in, food and service was great! Would go again.

    They offer gluten free options but they need to make sure there’s no cross contamination.

    Lunchtime yum cha is well worth trying, very good quality with lovely views over the Yarra river.

    we ate here because of recommendation from our friends. There is absolutely nothing to write about for their yumcha. Disappointment probably better wording to use. Food was meh, service was meh, only location is the best.

    Went for the $90 banquet as the food we wanted to try was on it. Even though it was expensive it was absolutely delicious and a great way to taste multiple dishes. Swapped the dim sims for dumplings which we wanted to try and the staff were very accommodating. Definitely recommend for somewhere special to go. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.

    A lot of the food was nice, but not extraordinary. Too expensive for what we had.
