Prince’s Palace. A Lunchtime review

Barcham 21 May 2013 9

Today we ventured out of the inner-north and made the long journey all the way up to the middle-north.

We went to Belconnen to have Yum Cha for lunch, and I ate so much I feel a little ill.

This is what I wanted.

The Yum Cha costs $22 a head, and I easily ate my $22 worth. There are items that are not included in that $22 and you need to be careful because the staff bringing the food around won’t necessarily tell you what is what, they’ll just keep offering you food.

The usual assortment of dumplings, pork buns, spring rolls, and various nibblies appeared at out table fairly regularly, and while no single item I tried turned out to be particularly noteworthy, none of it was bad.

We did order some items of food that never showed, and the aforementioned threat of accidentally picking up something that costs extra without being told was always looming, so the service could have been better. However on the other wise of the coin there was a reasonable sized group of us, and within moments of walking in we had been seated and were already being served hot food. So you take the good with the bad.

In the end I recieved a massive pile of decent Chinese for $22, so I can forgive the restaurant a few quirks.

Absolutely recommended if you’re feeling like pigging out on a budget.

Next lunchtime review at the Copa perhaps?

You mean that place that closed voluntarily? As opposed to the fate that befell Prince’s Palace April last year.

Been there once for Yum Cha (over two years ago now). Mmmm, Pork Buns…

Should be “However, on the otherwise of…”.

Actually it should be on the other side of the coin. “On the otherwise” makes no sense.

An odd typo to make, but the letters are next to each other and of course no wriggly red line would have shown up.

Took the tribe to Prince Palace for yum cha once. Once. Paid top dollar (wasn’t fixed price). Mediocre tucker. Dreadful service – worst I can recall in any retail or hospitality setting.

You should’ve tried the beef rendang and rice at Sanur next door. Very, very nice!!!

Dumpling Inn in Jamison must do a good Yum Cha (not tried), always lots of Asian families when I visit.
