    Food quality great as always. Dumplings, takayoko and bbq pork bun were delicious. The tea pot cocktails whilst nice, were werent sure if it was worth the $50 but were unable to compare to the individual cocktails. Always recommend Uncle Mings for anyone after great dumplings in Sydney with an excellent date night vibe.

    Our table was in a corner with no fan, air conditioning not working so 7 people squished together was very hot and kind of ruined the evening. We asked to move and told not possible yet there were empty tables under fans that would have made a difference. We left early as just too hot.

    Think the vibes are for younger patrons. Cocktails were ok, too hot as no air con, but the food was a disappointment. I could actually get better dumplings from my local for 1/2 the price so if you’re looking for great food, this is not for you. A place to meet for a few drinks, yeh maybe.

    Still a great place to go, despite the heat. The staff have brought in air conditioning towards the back of the bar, which is great. But the place still stays warm. I do recommend going though.

    Everything was great, only issue was we received way too much sauce for the 'bites' we ordered so it seemed a lot would go to waste. We got 3 lots of 3 sauce, 4 spring rolls and 4 arancini and each bowl of sauce was capable of 4 or 5 dips.

    Our favourite place ever! The staff are sooo lovely especially the one who took our order/bill at the end and another who poured our fire drink. We came here for our friends Xmas night and the ambience is always so unique, a real gem in Sydney. We shall be back soon I’m sure 😁Also thank you for accomodating our group and for giving us a lovely booth section of the resturant !

    The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and good quality food but the restaurant itself is excessively dark - it was very hard to see any of what you were eating. Seems a bit ridiculous to have the lights down so low while trying to eat dinner.

    Food was great and orders the shanghai roller which was fun to see made. However the service was bad as most the time we were ignored or had to wave over or walk up to the bar in order to get served even though we were only one of a few tables

    The host that took to us to the table was great, all other staff members very poor, was obvious they were angry, swearing. The staff spend a lot of time chatting to each other and sitting down at the tables to continue their chatting. We had to constantly look for staff to take our orders. Then when paying the bill they were stood taking pictures of each other. Very unprofessional.

    The place is great but was no AC so it got very hot very quickly. We waited nearly 15-20 minutes to be served (we had to get up and find out server). Music was a little too loud to hear other people in conversations but the vibes were there. Drinks were great! Will come here again, maybe on a day that wasn’t too hot XD

    Amazing place! The ambience is incredible & the dumplings are really good value and super yummy. Cocktails are also delish but on the pricier side ($22-$25). Lovely staff who very kindly reminded us that we had 20 minutes left of our 2 hour booking slot, which was great because you don't feel rushed out! Highly, highly recommend!

    We ordered most of the menu, aside from the edamame which was underwhelming and a little overcooked everything was amazing. The service was great when you could get someone's attention though it was very busy so totally understandable. Will 100% be back next time we're in the area. Menu highlight was mings wings.
