Th highlight was definitely the sizzling chicken and salt prawns. They were both awesome! This restaurant is now licensed! It's pure Chinese through and through - service was good and there were loads of Chinese families enjoying dinner together which speaks volumes in itself about the food. A gem! Go if u love Chinese food, stay away if u are... More

Shun De is one of those restaurants because of its upstairs location can often be overlook. Situated in the heart of Johannesburg, in the middle of Derrick Street, Cyrildene, this is the place to be for sunday lunch Dim Sum. Go early at around 1100 before the madness starts and there you will have the best and choicest spread of... More

Best place for yum cha! Good food and service! Just need to go a bit earlier on a Sunday to get a seat as this place fills up quickly. Just wish there was more parking around!

If you want a taste of authentic dim sum (none of those deep fried spinach and cheese deep stuff), give this place a try. The waitrons speak limited English, but dishes are available in a central area for you to browse and pick. Just make sure the person standing behind the counter stamps your slip every time you select a... More

This was my first visit to Cyrildene even though I've lived in JHB for 17yrs. We chose this as place as tripadvisor had some good reviews. We found that the food was good but the service was shocking. My boyfriend ordered a beer which took over 40min to come with no one coming to the table to check if all... More

We had reservation for Chinese New Year this past Saturday evening. A couple from our party went to the restaurant on Thursday evening to confirm that they had our reservation and that we were seated inside. We were a party of 30 people with a whole bunch of kids. It was pouring with the rain when we arrived only to... More

We have been to Shun De restaurant before on a Saturday (nov 2014) around lunch time, I had a craving for dim sum and a few reviews on google said this is a good a place as any….I beg to differ. The dim sum, while I guess authentic, did not leave me wanting more. The flavours were bland and majority... More

Went to Shun De on a Friday night. Plenty of space available as the restaurant seems huge. Food was very good & fresh so I rate this as a very good Chinese. Service was fun as waitresses struggled with English. Decor was very bland. Was as if someone tried to decorate a school hall. Parking was a problem. Bill was... More
