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.

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.

My dim sum suggestion for Auckland is
Sunshine Chinese Restaurant.
Address: 39 Market Place,Viaduct Harbour. Tel:
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.
