Awesome Yum Cha! I went into Mr Wong's for a Friday lunch with 2 colleagues and we were all impressed with the quality and taste of the Yum Cha dishes. It was a bit expensive compared to the Yum Cha restaurants you find in Chinatown, at around $40 per person for lunch but the food was the best Yum Cha any of us had ever had. The steamed rice noodle rolls with either the bbq pork or the king prawns where the pick of the dishes. The rice noodles glistened with a delicious sweet soy sauce and the pork and prawns inside were both delicious.
