    Beautiful food and service, very welcoming. The food was lovely and the kids tried certain food they hadn’t eaten before and loved it. Prices were are not crazy either.

    Great place to experience traditional yumcha. It's good to see as traditional yumcha seems to be disappearing in Melbourne, and the food is top quality.

    We celebrated my husband's birthday at Shark Fin Keysborough. We hadn't been there for a few years - it was fabulous - just as we remembered it. Such a great variety in the Yum cha offerings. So fresh and hot.

    I've been there for Yum cha. The staffs couldn't speak English so of course they couldn't explain what dishes were. The food was just average not so exclusive or authentic. The worst experience was the owner who deal with payment. He was so rude with short English and so rude ever. He seems like forced us to pay tips we didnt pay for tips of course He didn't even say thank you I never want to back there Absolutely shitt place

    Traditional Chinese restaurants are not as easy to find as they used to be. My group went in search of one and arrived at Shark Fin in Keysborough. We ordered 'traditional' dishes such as San Choi Bow, crab claw, Peking duck, short soup etc. We were all delighted with the food. It was hot, tasty, and exceeded our expectations. The friendly staff ensured that we had an enjoyable evening. This was my first time at Shark Fin and I will definitely be returning.

    The food was amazing, best chinese in SE suburbs. The service staff were great , not over the top and annoying . $90 each for two, for a 6 course banquet that included a whole fresh King Island Lobster and all other courses were picked by us and the manager to ensure all were our favoueite meals.

    Our group of 5 dined there last Friday evening. It had been many years since we had been, and we were not disappointed. The food was still spectacular and plentiful. The service was very good. We were not drinking alcohol and our pot of Chinese tea was replenished constantly throughout the evening. Only minor downside was the noise level, but with a restaurant of that size, packed with happy enthusiastic diners, it was to be expected. We were amazed to see that the original manager (talking probably from the 1980's) was still there. He runs a tight ship. Looking forward to going back for Yum Cha soon!
