Look, honestly the food was reasonable, I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could. I went with a total of 5 people so we were able to try a fair bit of the yum cha menu.
Steamed dumplings were quite nice, shallot pancakes delicious. The battered and fried stuff was a little heavy on the batter, but there was a little five spice in the batter (I think) for the chicken and it tasted great. The steamed pork rib bits were a bit weird, but the black beans gave them a nice flavour. I didn't try them but others rated the bbq pork buns as average and a bit light on the filling. Fried rice was just okay. The wonton noodle soup had well cooked noodles, totally average stock, and the wontons had very little filling
Where the venue falls down for me is being treated as a bit of a guai lo, but for Blue Rinse Village I guess that's par for the course. No chopsticks initially offered, chipped plates and bowls, but the kicker was eating off flat plates.
As yum cha fiends know, picking up the small bowl and using chopsticks to noisily slurp the last bits of food and scoop them into your mouth without making a mess is a core component of the yum cha experience, which this place deprives you of. If management change their dish selection I'll immediately switch my review to 4 stars. See less
