Great food and service at reasonable prices for CBD Sydney. I always go there when they open at 11:00 AM. If you pay in cash and it is between 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM there is a 15% discount.

Not the best Yum Cha I've had, but certainly not the worst. At one point, I had three women with trolleys attacking me at once, and it was a little uncomfortable.

Yummy food constantly offered from trolleys passing by. Even though we were late arrivals we were looked after even after 3pm.

Seven of us had a diner in this restaurant on a Tuesday night. We had six dishes plus a steamed fish. All dishes were yummy. The fish was fresh and well cooked. We only paid less than $40 per head. excellent value for money.

Tucked away in Piccadilly Arcade, with a staircase entry (not disabled access!) out near the exit to Castlereagh Street, this restaurant could easily be missed! It is a large establishment with live fish available to choose from. The drinks menu has a very convenient single...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

It’s not a buffet as such. It’s yum cha. More like the buffet comes to you with robing waiters delivering food you can choose to your table.
