One of the 5 star yum cha places found in Auckland. Plenty of parking found within the racecourse location. Some of the workers speak English which is handy. A variety of tea ranges available. Clean toilets. Com[complimentary soup and dessert if you spend the right amount.
This restaurant is often controversial. It is quite obvious that dim sums they offer are fabulous and some of them are unarguably the best food in Auckland - some Cantonese desserts in particular. Prices are a bit higher than average but they deserve it considering the food quality. There is only one problem, which is a major one to us - their service. Every time we had our lunch there on weekends, the staff kept their eyes on our plates and whenever they saw there was little food on the plates, they came and asked whether we wanted more dishes or otherwise asked us to pay our bills as soon as possible. This was very rude and disrespecting customers. The worst case is last time we were even enjoying the food (and certainly conversations as well) and I just said hello to another friend I came across - I swear this lasted no longer than 15 seconds, the staff collected all my plate, my bowl and my utensils without asking me if I had finished! They even didn't apologise afterwards. Obviously they did not care about my frustration at all. That's the reason why I gave them 2 stars here.
One of our go to places for Yum Cha. Nice place, and always packed. Service is nicer than the usual Yum Cha that you would experience in Auckland. Food would be around average for some and above average for others. We'd still go back here since they're one of the few establishments that serves tofu jelly that my wife loves.
Although always busy, this restaurant has a very lively atmosphere and it's one of the best things about being in a Chinese restaurant. The staff are always on call to meet your needs and the dim sum is top notch, every time.
