Golden Dragon Palace Seafood Restaurant

It’s been quite some time since I last visited Golden Dragon and in terms of decor, nothing seems to have really changed. The place is traditional and elegant with the Chinese lanterns, the timber dividers and the wallpaper that features Chinese characters. The white table cloths and leather seating give this place a more luxurious…

Dragon Tea House

Knowing that the Dragon Tea House was relatively new, and that there were some positive reviews about this place, I thought it was a safe decision to bring a group of friends along to check it out. When I first walked in, I was impressed by the traditional and elegant decor. The table we were…

Tea House Yum Cha

For me, yum cha is starting to taste the same where ever I have it, particularly with the mass production of a lot of the food items. I was even more skeptical when someone suggested we have it in a food court. When I approached Tea House Yum Cha in the Rundle Place food court,…

Shanghai Tea House

Shanghai Tea House is located inside Burnside Village, and is both a Chinese restaurant and yum cha place rolled into one. The place has a modern exterior with traditional elements inside. The decor is not specifically traditional Chinese, but more of a fusion of other Asian elements. The seating cubicles that they have on one…

Dumpling Spot

Dumpling Spot is a spot where they sell dumplings and other Chinese style dishes in the Renaissance Arcade food court. The place itself is large enough to have it’s own indoor seating, however, there is plenty of seating available in the food court area. Today, I ordered a serve of their signature Pan Fried Pork…

Dumpling King – King William St

I’ve seen some pretty grotty places in my time, but this one has to be up there. The floor is absolutely filthy, there are grease marks on the tables and cups and I was even reluctant to sit down on the seat. The place is a hive of bacteria waiting to attack my poor immune…

Dim Well Cafe

Dim Well is a relatively new yum cha eatery located in the Gouger Street cafe precinct. The menu is your stock standard yum cha fare which is prepared as ordered. The place is relatively small with the tables close to each other. There’s no way a yum cha trolley is going to make its way…

Dumplings R Us

Chinese dumpling places seem to be popping up all over the place these days. As I make dumplings at home, I was keen to put Dumplings R Us to the test. Located on Rundle Street, this basically decorated store offers all your typical Chinese dishes as well as dumplings. Today, I ordered the Pan Fried…

Noodle Kingdom

Noodle Kingdom isn’t the nicest place I’ve seen. When we were going to our table, I noticed grease marks on one of the chairs I was about to sit at. I then decided to sit at the table next to it and that chair had even more grease marks. I knew it was going to…

Mandoo

I’ve been to Mandoo several times and I must say their dumplings are pretty good. Located in a small store on Bank Street, the place is always packed at lunch time. With what appears to be a family run business, the staff are warm and inviting and it’s impressive to see the dumplings made in…
