Fantastic food,service and atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Best Food! Friendly staff - our favourite restaurant.
Fantastic food in a great setting! Thank you very much it was beautiful.
I've been several times now. I CRAVE some of the dishes. The XO Pancake, the eggplant, the popcorn cauliflower. It's all great. Lovely flavours. I would really recommend this place. It's just easy, not fussy and great food at a really reasonable price.
The food was absolutely delicious! We were a party of four and ordered the banquet. Our server was fantastic!! The kind of service and attention we would have expected at a fine dining restaurant. It was refreshing! Our new favourite place - thanks King Tea team :)
The Vegan Banquet is amazing and extremely well priced.
If you are Vegan and don't have this on your radar you need to fix that asap.
This restaurant was lovely. The food was delicious, the service was great. There were great options for me amd my partner (a vegan and an omni). I really appreciated the vegan options being labelled as such. The XO Pancakes are AMAZING!
Great vegetarian options and quick, helpful service
Amazing food, great atmosphere and the hosts were wonderful.
We’ve been three times in three weeks. I’ve been with friends, with my parents and with interstate guests. They all loved it. Great atmosphere in a fun part of Paddington.
We had a wonderful evening. Our waiter was very attentive and thoughtful of all parties at our table, ordering food with less spice catering to the kids without being asked. There was the perfect amount of food and variety between 6 adults and 3 kids. We are all so happy, thank you! Looking forward to our next vegan banquet.
Fab vegan banquet
Great service - friendly and efficient.
So cheap $20 if you buy a drink and order before 7pm
Love this place
5 of us enjoyed the Monday night vegan banquet. The food was just amazing! Lovely fresh, modern dishes packed full of flavour. Meat wasn’t missed at all. The wine choice was excellent too. Staff were very accommodating. We loved sitting outside down the little lane - great spot! Would highly recommend. Can’t wait to return and try some more menu items.
See you again soon
table of six people - were disappointed that we could only choose the option of a banquet . with a table of six or more you can t order individual meals. in saying that the food / choices were quite enjoyable.
The food tasted like authentic Chinese cuisine. The tofu and dumplings were especially yummy and the other dishes were tasty too. It was a little cramped at our table as my updated reservation from 3 to 4 didn’t register on the computer. I would try it again. The wait staff were helpful and pleasant and there was a nice Riesling on the wine list. The restaurant was a little noisy for my liking.
Fantastic food with a great vegan selection. The staff were super helpful with letting us know what was in the dishes and they recommended some great food.
Delicious. Great service. And comfortable seats! Liked it so much I took my parents there 2 days later. They loved it as well.
I love coming to the vegan banquet here! The food is always delicious! Staff are lovely too :)
With 4 adults we needed more of the delicious food.. I know we had more plates but I do think the quantity was not sufficient
Vegan Banquet was incredible! 8 person banquet provided the right amount of food for everyone.
One of my favourites in Paddington! Delicious food at a really affordable price. The staff are fantastic too
My friends and I went to King Tea for the Vegan Banquet special. Upon arrival, we found out that the minimum guests for the banquet is four. This came as a surprise, but King Tea explained it patiently. When we ordered enough food for four for the three of us, the staff at King Tea provided takeaway containers.
The food... was so good! Dumplings. Roasted eggplants. Stir-fried rice. Spicy green beans. Each dish was excellent. We would definitely be back. The value of the banquet is great too. We definitely had enough for ourselves (three vego women) and little lunch boxes. Thank you!
Had the vegan banquet. Excellent food. Good size portions on all plates. Especially loved the lightly battered tofu.
King Tea Chinese Kitchen & Bar @ Paddington was exceptional. This was my first visit (it came highly recommended to me from a friend & they were NOT WRONG).. absolutely everything was exceptional. The food was melt in your mouth delicious. The service was out of this world and I will most definitely be going back. I LOVED IT!!!
Kung pow chicken and Cauliflower popcorn were amazing! Oh, and the dumplings! We will be back for sure
Excellent food and wine with great service. Good selection of vegetarian options.
The food was amazing! They’re hard to reach during business hours, didn’t answer the phone. But when we got there, they were very nice and accommodating. Can’t wait to go back, the food was so delicious! The ambience was great and the layout of the restaurant was wonderful for a large group.
The staff were very busy so the table service was slow to respond but were polite and i formative when they did notice, the food was very authentic and delicious as was the atmosphere.
Excellent value for money for a very tasty vegan banquet. Great service.
Great food, very good value for money and an awesome atmosphere. The service was great, except they forgot one of the plates we ordered (ended up being a blessing in disguise as the servings were massive and we were way too full anyway). We’ll definitely return!
We will absolutely be coming back here!! Food was amazing.
Wonderful meal, brilliant service and fantastic experience as always thank you
Awesome food. The whole fish is definitely worth ordering. Great service and great value.
We got the $20 vegan banquet and it was amazing value! The perfect amount of food. My favourite Chinese in bris!
The only negative was that it was quite hot where we were sitting and the aircon near us was dripping water. Food was fantastic.
$20 all you can eat yumm cha is amazing value! Book early it is becoming very popular
There are a few areas that need improvement. 2 staff alone can't manage 20-30 diners. There was a lot lacking when it came to customer service, primarily to do with the waiting period for the dishes.
The quality of the food at the vegan banquet was very good, but the quantity was lacking. We were 4 individuals who were still quite hungry by the end of it and would have liked at least twice the amount to be satisfied.
When we ordered food from the a la carte menu, the rice dish came 30 mins after the eggplant dish, which was cold by then.
A very unsatisfactory experience over all.
I hope this was a one-off instance and the service can be improved as we would like to come back.
Best Chinese Restaurant in Brisbane. The food was amazing. Really show cased vegetables. We did the banquet. Highly recommended. We didn’t know what we were going to get so just let them feed us. We will definitely be back.
Food was good. However, in terms of service, it was lacking.
The term "buffet" does not match my expectations as the service was gradually getting slower and worse. The buffet started at 10am but no food was served until 10.15-10.20am, nobody wanted to serve or look at our table even when we wanted to order more food. Then, the ordered food did not arrive successfully before the time limit of 11.30am. On top of that, the waiting time was very slow ( 30 mins) after the first round of serving .
Waited 30 minutes after the first round of serving for 2 xiao long baos ONLY, the remaining pork shu mai, wonton and cripsy pancake did not even arrive at the end of the buffet. Disappointed with the provided service, not sure if it was intentional or a tactic to waste customer's buffet time. Literally wasted 45 mins waiting for dishes that never arrive.
Don't let the word "buffet" fool you. I wouldn't recommend this place if you want a yum cha buffet, it might look like its value for money, but the service is the biggest letdown.
