Best yum cha in Canberra?

By Jack_Malarkey 4 June 2013 13

Where’s the best yum cha in Canberra? There was a thread on this back in April 2012 that wasn’t particularly conclusive. I’m keen to find out the latest.

I had a wonderful yum cha in Sydney recently at a place named Eight above the Haymarket, and would like to try the Canberra yum cha scene.

What’s Your opinion?

XY Dim Sim Dumpling house have reopened again. This time at the Italian Club. Granted they have been closed a couple of times at Croatian club due to various reasons and have made a bad name for themselves, but heard they’ve cleaned up their act and are aiming to head in a positive direction. The owner could’ve changed names but stuck to it. Still worth a try as it’s a set price for all you can eat.

Noble Palace has closed and is now called Top Taste Seafood Restaurant. Still offering yumcha though.

Scholar, Ginseng and Dumpling Inn offer up good yumcha

Prince Palace is ok too but below average

Can highly recommend the Yum Cha on Emu Bank in Belco. Good service, plenty of choices and inexpensive.

I’d second the Dumpling Inn suggestion. It’s not flash by any measure, but the food is good, and has a few more options than just the usual suspects.

Spicy Ginger near the ANU is the go!!! $20 all you can eat!!! Great pastry (chinese pastry) chef!!! Service is good, too busy if you don’t go early.

steer clear of XY Dumpling House

‘XY dumpling’ conjures up a different sort of mental image from that usually associated with yum cha.

I really like Ginseng at the Hellenic Club.

The only one I’ve ever been to in Canberra is Noble Palace in Woden. Seemed pretty good in my opinion. I’m no Yum Master but it compared reasonably with the one at the Sydney Fish Markets.

The Dumpling Inn at Jamison. They are the same owners and chefs who used to be at the Kythera motel on northbourne (years ago) which were near impossible to get into without a booking well in advance.

We like Ginseng (I think it’s called) at the Helenic Club in Woden. Not the first place I would have thought to look for good yum cha, but every time we’ve been it’s been great.

Ooh, can of worms! Everytime I look into this exact topic the end result is always a bunch of suggestions made, with some people loving the place, and some people hating the place. There will never agreement on questions like this 🙂

(Also, I have no contribution to make. I’ve only been to one, and it was ok, but I can’t compare to anything).
