Oriental Tea House - Chapel St
Incredible food! Would definitely recommend to everyone!
Beautiful food and superb service and attention to detail :)
I went to the vegan yum cha evening. The service was incredible and the food was delicious.
My only wishes were:
a) that they balanced the timing of certain dishes. It was pretty much only dumplings in the first 30 mins. It got a bit boring. I filled up on dumplings and then didn't have any space for the rest of the night. It would have been great to have a variety of foods coming around, not just dumplings. The table beside me turned down multiple dishes, saying they were waiting for something that was not a dumpling. They were waiting quite some time for more variation.
b) that there was a list of the foods featured that night. I heard a few other tables asking for this and it would have been great to see what was coming too. I tried to wait around to see if anything would be coming out that I really wanted, but I was SO full that I ended up leaving before the entire 18 plates had been released. I wish I'd been able to see what food was coming because I filled up on some dishes I didn't really care for, and then didn't have space for things I would have loved to try.
Went to their vegan 2.0 yum cha event. I felt that the taste of the dishes and the options available were designed more for the westerners. Not saying that it wasn't tasty, but just not the flavors I expected for authentic Chinese food.
I probably won't come again unless another function with a group of other people.
Fun, funky, fresh, great drinks, great service, easy location
Will go again.
We have been a number of times to this address and the city address and both never fail to deliver. We were there to celebrate my partners birthday with her family. The food and the service were outstanding as usual
Really delicious food and great atmosphere! Really enjoyed birthday dinner here.
Great vegan options
Will be back - and back - and back
Service staff were very attentive to us even though it was quite a busy time. The food was great, (my fave are the chilli wagyu beef!) although the spring rolls were quite oily. I make a 40min trip to chapel st just to come here, will definitely be back! Thanks
GreT casual place for dinner with family. Wine list great not over the top like many places
Yes but not in a large group with restricted menu.
We had 1x veg, 1x gluten free and the large group (8) made the menu far too restricting and boring.
when i rang to confirm booking and ask about gluten free. was told lots of gluten free but nothing about restricted menu....i would have cancelled or booked 2 tables of 4 to order from your usually lovely menu.
We loved the look of the restaurant as we walked in and the food that followed was so tasty! I’m a vegan and was pleased to find a full plant based menu to choose from. It was also so reasonably priced. We will definitely be back and have already recommended to everyone we’ve seen since!
Great food and service, just would have liked the windows closed as the cigarette smoke came right into the restaurant (we were at the very back as well) and reached us.
I understand that this might be important information to pass on given the food/smoking laws.
I thought the serving were quite small and pricey. The service was excellent though.
Great yum cha options. Good service.
Awesome food and great price
Great food, however better descriptions should be given on the menu. The prawn and pork rolls on a bed of vermicelli were not as expected (soft and soggy vs crispy).
Great everyday Chinese restaurant with great vegetarian options
Thought the value was poor with three piece dim sum dishes @$11 each and cocktails @ $20. Felt more like hotel pricing than a restaurant.
Great service provided from the door to the table. Cleopatra was amazing and had great product knowledge and customer service. The food is outstanding and soft shell crab sliders to die for! All dumplings are amazing and don’t forget to order the amazing cocktails in the teapot!
Food excellent quality and service quick and non intrusive
The egg noodle dish was bland and lacking any real flavour.
The pork belly on a bed of cucumber pickled salad was the highlight as where the the wontons.
Dumplings were lukewarm but of good quality so I will forgive them for that.
Would highly recommend
Very tasty, very interesting dumplings. I will be back.
We had the sharing deal. Great flavours and portions for the four of us. Service was friendly and food came out in a timely manner. Yum!!
Nice but not fantastic food and for a fixed menu not enough food.
Great food and service - the only let down was not being able to split bill at the end which was very annoying!
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Oriental Teahouse for yum cha. We were seated quickly and were also served quickly and our waitress followed up regularly with us to see if we needed more drinks etc.
All staff were lovely as was the food which was all delicious. The different trays of food kept coming out very regularly and we did not have to wait for anything. The food is very tasty and fresh. The best yum cha!
I was told by my friends that the food at the Oriental Tea House was the best food anywhere - a very big claim. I don't know about that, but we shared 4 meals and all of them were quite special so I recommend giving Oriental Tea House a go. I don't have any negatives; it's a little expensive, but the food is good so i thought the prices were fair enough. I even enjoyed tasting a couple of different teas that were on offer in "the tea area".
Just had dumplings - great idea
Really interesting flavours great combinations
Absolutely amazing food and great customer service. Food was well priced with exceptionally fast service. 10/10 would recommend and be back.
Really great service.
Brought rice out for my little one straight away, asked us if there was any preferences we were waiting on from the kitchen (we were at Sunday Yum Cha) then plates of what we requested came around.
Delicious food as always and a really pleasant experience
The food always seems under seasoned.
The service was very slow, food came out at different times and we also didn’t receive 1 of the orders. Nothing special :(
Excellent food. Very quick and attentive service. With a smile . Loved it.
Dined here for Midweek lunch. Very quiet. Good main but cold wagyu beef dumplings were disappointing. Pretty pricey for what it is.
Fantastic food with amazing flavours, we dined on a Sunday afternoon and began with yum cha then finishing with rice and another main dish from the menu. Lovely settings with great service although a little slow due to the peak demand.
Loved the atmosphere, incredible variety and quality of food! Will be back again! Thankyou for a lovely evening
Outstanding service and food, was a very busy night but staff still managed to be very attentive and helpful. Food arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious. It was the perfect end to my birthday, thank you so much!
Excellent for kids. Great highchairs and utensils for kids. Staff even brought over a plastic cup and paper straw for my daughter so she couldn’t break it. Thanks!
Recommended with reservations. Food is good, service is friendly although not that efficient. Horrendously they will not split the bill at all - absolutely refused to even split into two equal halves. Understand that they can’t have a situation where each person in a group wants a separate bill - but surely we can do two equal splits.
Excellent food and good friendly service, casual and no fuss.
