    I cannot fault one single element. Truly one of the best Asian meal experiences I’ve ever had. Speechless.

    Outstanding food and impeccable service. This restaurant has zero street appeal but once inside, is one of the best Chinese restaurants in Australia.

    Delicious food and excellent service. We ate prawn and scallops. The crayfish wonton soup was excellent. Staff were attentive. The wine list was expensive and extensive.

    We go here all the time and it is usually impeccable, however the crab and sticky rice dish we got as a 'special dish' for Chinese New year was sub-par. We will just stick with the impeccable dishes on the main menu from now on. Those are presumably created by the master chef for the 3 restaurants in the group, rather than this one which was the idea of a junior chef for sure. I am guessing the mainstream dishes are carefully curated. This one was definitely not.

    Delicious food and excellent service, just perfect. Had the yum cha lunch and while it lacks the buzz and energy of a big city yum cha experience, the excellent service and food makes up for it.

    Amazing food, seafood dominant Peony banquet was superb! Attentive but not intrusive staff. Was a bit slow to come out, but worth the wait! Highly recommend!!

    Had yum cha there with high degrees of expectations since our dinner at Me Wah in Launceston was very very good. Unfortunately, the food here was not very good at all and most of the dishes served were cold. We have yum cha nearly every week in Perth in various restaurants but Me Wah Hobart is truly disappointing. Yum Cha trolleys without steamer??? Also, the guy serving us doesn’t look like he wanted to be there. It’s chalk and cheese compared to Me Wah in Launceston

    I love the food quality, customer service, atmosphere here. Definitely will come back next week and let my friends know. And prices aren’t too expensive as what I thought compared to food quality. Thanks. Nikki.
