Everytime we go here we enjoy it. It's so busy but we love that about this place the hustle and bustle of people and food everywhere. All the food is yummy and they always try to get people in to eat even off the street walkers but always pays to book in advance to get a guaranteed seat. Good idea... More

Horror of horrors we went to go to our usual yum cha restaurant on Sunday morning and it was closed for a private function!!! Desperate to get our yum cha fix, we tried two other places, but without a booking, we were turned away. In a last ditch effort we tried our luck at Dragons. "Do you have a booking?"... More

We came with some friends who love yum char as much as we do. We hadn't been for awhile and were very pleasantly surprised to have deep fried battered soft shell crab! All the usuals were there although somehow we missed the turnip cake and no dim sims nor steamed dumplings made it to our table. No matter because all... More

My family often dine at Dragons as it is great for a family and really great service. I would totally recommend booking as it can get really busy and you don't want to be turned away. Really great variety of dumplings and other deliciousness. If they don't have what you want then just ask and they will quickly get if... More

My husband and I went in to Dragons in the middle of the biggest move of our lives. Hungry, stressed and very tired we were looking forward to filling up on yum-cha and green tea. And we weren't disappointed. Beautiful dumplings with savory fillings, delicious steamed buns, asian vegetables and egg tarts to finish. My husband also had chicken feet... More

Love the decor and the exciting & creative ways the dishes are presented. The red decor does add to the atmosphere. Highly commend whole steamed fish - which was so fresh & succulent - cooked to perfection - and lightly seasoned to not be overpowering. Came here for a banquet with set menu so not sure if this dish is... More

We needed a good quick meal and this was. Good value and attentive staff. Not the best Chinese cuisine but best value for money.

Even though I am of Chinese ancestry, today I had Yum Cha for the first time. I have always been put off because I went to a sushi train once and thought it was an expensive way to dine. Like the sushi train, I am going to say Yum Cha can be an expensive way to dine and walked away... More

As what you would expect a yum cha experience... but the green tea ice cream ball was a pleasant surprise! Love it... I can come back just for those :-)

called in with family to have a meal after visiting Te Papa. Our daughter in law is Chinese and ordered for us. Food was excellent and service very good. Loved the green tea which was very refreshing. Also personally loved the chilli sauce which nobody else tried - nice and hot/spicy. Worth a visit and they are happy to provide... More
