Do not go here if you are not a regular. They only look after regulars and do not give anyone else a chance. It is ridiculous. The food is not even good either. Takes a long time to order and a long time for food to come out. Bad service, I actually complained to management and they are not very respondent. I have had a very bad experience here and will never return.
My family goes out for dinner very often and this is our favourite Chinese place!! Yes, we are all Chinese so we know what we’re talking about. Both yum char and dinner is impeccable. There’s a lot of variety in the choices and everything delivered is at a very high standard. I love yum char here but you have to wait a very long time if you haven’t made a reservation because its very popular!!
Go here now!
Come back after 5 years, the food is good. But service is very bad, and it took a long time to deliver for some simple Chinese dishes. It looks they serve the regular clients first, and don’t care about “stranger”. Will never come back, and will try some other Chinese restaurant around Newmarket.
We were in Auckland for business reasons and decided to have a yum char lunch here. We were not disappointed. After a short wait we were shown to our table. There was a reasonable selection of food on offer and the service was quick and efficient.
Sun World should also be commended on their char siu pao and pork siu mai. These were the most flavoursome versions of both dishes I have tasted to date. As we live in the Waikato, the restaurant was also happy to let us purchase dim sum to takeaway. We will definitely be back!
We dinner with friends of 15 persons on Thursday night we booking 2 tables ..the food was great and delicious…the service was very faster and friendly…only thigh very hard find the parking in new market and only in upstairs cover car parking pay and display…!
Went here for the first time today. Glad I had booked a head of time as it was pretty full even at 2pm.
Was quite surprised how good the food was. Ordered Har Gao, they were so good we ordered a second lot. They had whole prawns in them (something you do not get in most yum cha places in NZ). The Siu Mai was also good. The Chive and Prawn dumpling also was superb, again it contain whole prawns.
Egg tarts were extremely nice and light. The pastry was also puffy. The tofu jelly (tofu fa) was very smooth.
Waiting staff all spoke good English, which I was surprised about, most yum cha places I have been in NZ their English are generally pretty bad, so always tempted to order in Chinese
Definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for good yum cha place in Auckland. Will definitely return when I am in Auckland next.
A regular destination for us, the service is frantic but we don’t go there for that. If you want Cantonese food cooked the way we Cantonese like it, you must eat here. I have too many favourites to mention but the steamed blue cod with ginger and spring onions, cantonese crispy roast duck, the white poached chicken and the special tofu are all very close to my heart. If you want to go all out to impress, try the crayfish sashimi, it’s spectacular.
Had yum char here for lunch. It was very busy but service was still quick and efficient. A good variety of food at a steady pace. Tasted good and the price was reasonable. Will be coming back.
You might have a hard time trying to find a parking lot here. I’ve been here once and very impressed with the service, nothing special about the food because it seems to me yum char is all the same. But excellent service A+++
Definitely one of the best yum char and chinese dinners in auckland. Always bustling with people, staff are always busy (as with most good chinese restaurants) so tolerance to service is appreciated. Overall, my family and I are a regular so that speaks volume : )
We were going to go to Sun World, I called to make a booking and asked if they sell shark fin. Sun World does sell shark fin. Please, think about this, shark finning is a barbaric practice. Say no with your feet and tell restaurants that shark finning is not okay.
this place gets really busy during lunchtime and service can vary. The tea servers are quick to refill your pot without being asked, but it required quite a bit of work getting the attention of the food servers pushing around the food carts. Overall, food selection is satisfactory, but slightly expensive. It cost $140 for a table of 4… .which comes up to $35 per person.
After a previous poor experience 2 years ago, the last two occasions we have gone, have been much-improved. Dishes arrived quickly, and the quality and portions were nothing to complain about.
This place is always busy, so that says something good about this place.
Always had good yum cha here but be warned it’s pretty popular so make sure you arrive at a good time (11:30am)be prepared to wait OR book a table so you won’t be disappointed.
They have a good variety of dishes and although a bit pricier than some of the other yum cha restaurants around they are worth it. The service is great and the staff are friendly. I took my friends here and the loved it, oohed and ahed over the dim sum..one really good dish is the mango dessert. Don’t forget to try the custard tart, har gow and pork buns.
Delicious place, great setting and welcoming staff. Food is delicious and arrives quickly, however does slow down during busy hours but that is understandable. Also a bit on the pricey side, but when taken account with food and service, pretty reasonable. Recommended!!
good food good service discounted parking if you don’t book at lunch time you will wait up to an hour
we go once every weekend, sometimes not a large selection you need to order from the yum char menu
one of the only places that when you order from the yum char menu it arrives to you prices around the same for all the yum chars
Just had a Yumchar today, I don’t this was the best in Auckland! Waited for a long time to get a seat, but actually if your a group of three or a couple you might not get the table first when there is a bigger table that will fit on larger group they will look for a newly arrived guest. So in the end you feel disadvantage not dining on a large group at all. I notice there are only few food cart and if your sitting on the end part you might as well place an order so you get food. Would we go back? It’s a big NO! With the price your paying it’s better to have yumchar in Grand Harbour in the city and you’ll get a better selection of dish plus there are lot’s of food cart wondering around with excellent service.
I love your food and good Hospitality, I always offer to all my friends to come over there for yum char…cheers
this is one of the best chinese restaurant ever, yummy meals and great staff! but hard to park tho… well, still 2 thumbs up!!! keep up the good work!
Yum Char Sundays – 5 stars for outstanding food, very busy so book ahead. Look out for the massive live crayfish.
