Journeywoman International Dim Sum Directory


Dim Sum treats in Oceania



We love going to 'Ay Oriental Tea House' in Melbourne's Chapel Street. The food is fantastic and you can have Dim Sum (which we call Yum Cha here in Melbourne) at anytime! Our 2 boys (aged 5 and 11) love it too. They also serve and sell rare tea; my favourite being the Jasmin Pearl tea. Address: 455 Chapel Street, South Yarra. Tel: 9826 0168
Lee, Melbourne, Australia


I live in Perth Australia. My favourite Dim Sum experience is at The Emperor’s Court. I love the Dim Sum at this restaurant because it is brought to your table on a special trolley so all the bamboo baskets are kept warm. They always have great variety of steamed and fried tasty morsels including chicken, pork, seafood and even chicken feet done in a black bean sauce with aniseed and even a bit of chili. Address: 66 Lake Street. Tel: 08 9328 8860

If you come to Sydney, Australia the best dim sum (or in our terms yum cha) is at Sea Treasure at 46 Willoughby Road Crows Nest, tel 61 2 9906 6388. It's about a 10-minute taxi drive from the city north over the Harbour Bridge. Sea Treasure's selection of dishes is amazing and very reasonably priced. The patrons are 50% or more Chinese and I'm told the dishes are authentic, delicious and amazing. The restaurant is licensed and I find the service is terrific. They have enormous fish tanks full of giant King Island Crabs from Tasmania -- these have to be seen to be be believed and are a terrific attraction. If you don't want to shell out for the price (groan) apart from this feature they have a lot of seafood at great prices and other specialities such as Peking Duck which is lipsmackingly yummy as well as dim sum (many varieties) and the range of dishes is wonderful. Many of us Geilos( non Chinese) go there with or without kids and none I know has ever been disappointed most have been amazed.
Roma, Sydney, Australia



New Zealand...

My dim sum suggestion for Auckland is Sunshine Chinese Restaurant. Address: 39 Market Place,Viaduct Harbour. Tel: 09-302 3322.
Jo, Auckland, New Zealand


The Dim Sum restaurant I would suggest in Auckland is The Grand Harbour Chinese Restaurant (Corner Pakenham and Custom Street West), Viaduct, Auckland City. They serve great Yum Cha and have a lovely position down near the harbour. Very popular but also very nice and not too crowded. Tel. (09) 357 6889.
Fe, Auckland, New Zealand
