XY Dumpling house gone?

By peppermintBlue - 1 October 2012 10

I haven’t visited this place for a long time, but according to my friend, it already closed down. any particular and solid reason?

I know they have been fined for a couple of times, but this is one of the only few places you can get night time eat-all-you-can yum cha.

What’s Your opinion?

I can take a photo if you want to see the sign…

There’s a big government sign on the door saying it has been forcibly closed for health/hygiene reasons…I wouldn’t miss it if I were you. It’s pretty serious for that to happen. Also they’ve left all their cutlery on the tables as if people are just going to walk right back in. Yuck!

After constantly witnessing plates and utensils left out overnight, I’d never trust XY in Belconnen.

My family used to go there very regularly, probably 10 times a year.

The last time we were at the tail end of the day and while dishes were coming out of the kitchen they were all being intercepted by a table of chinese between us and the kitchen. Ended up standing next tio the kitchen door and stopping the waitress as she made a beeline for the other table.

Looked around and found alternatives, never went back.

I used to go here quote often. once a fortnight. it’s a good price for me especially during weekdays to be able to have an all-you-can-eat.

That’s just sad. their bland mango pudding is something that I go for every time.

Is this the same management as the one in deakin? Some lovely pjotos here : http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/deakin-eatery-heavily-fined-20120221-1tlwg.html

I think Deakin was a type and they meant Dickson!

I went to this place once…. The food was disgusting. Made me sick ! I’m still convinced they were serving us food from the day before reheated in the microwave.

Doesn’t surprise me that they’re closed down

Apeek through their windows during set up and fitout revealed dirty kitchen gear and crockery being used as ash trays, that did it for me, I was never going to be a customer.

A flatmate then had yum cha with Chinese friends there, they were disappointed by the poor quality of food, being told some items were vegetarian when they were not, poor service, hearing staff say ‘just get them out of here’ in Chinese after their party complained and an insect that turned up in their dessert. Word gets around …
