Although it had been at least a few months since my last visit, I was recognised and welcomed as an old friend. The food was excellent as always, the wine list an enjoyable browse and the service impeccable.

This is a tricky one - the food is top quality and is genuinely made with care and attention, while the staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful.

The reason for the low score was due to the ‘rushed’ nature of the sitting.
Examples below:
- When seated, the waitress asked if we would like any sparkling water or tea for our table. While I answered yes, I wasn’t given a choice of which tea we’d prefer. At $10 per pot, the option would’ve been nice to choose.
- At $55 per head, with the 90min limit, it was a challenge to try and get the money’s worth while being careful not to overeat, which proved too difficult to balance. The focus on enjoying the food and socialising together was difficult due to fast pace of the service.
- The service quickly became about eating the food moreso than enjoying the company of each other and the atmosphere of the venue. The overall ‘experience’ lacked as a result of the fast pace.
- The menu had become a bit too predictable, with spring rolls and dumplings being the key items without much in between to break up the menu. While the calamari, rice and Chinese broccoli were welcome additions, they came very late in the menu, meaning the first half seemed too much the same.

What would change this rating would be to see the time limit increased, even by 30mins, so as to allow enough time to enjoy and digest the food, while also being able to enjoy each other’s company and the atmosphere of the venue.
Secondly, it would be nice to see more greens and ‘lighter’ items mid-menu to break up the routine of spring rolls and dumplings, as well as adding a more ‘refreshing’ element to the dish.

Make no mistake- the food is beautiful. The staff are amazing. The venue is very relaxed.
If a few tweaks were made to the pace of service and layout of the menu offer, my rating would greatly improve.


Thanks and regards,
Daniel Campbell

It is always lovely to dine at David's and the unlimited Yum Cha on a Sunday is a treat.

The servings are generous, and you definitely will not go hungry as the waiters are constantly offering food and extra servings if you want extras of certain items you are particularly fond of.

My favourite items include the prawn spring rolls, and the chili pork dumplings. My advise is not to fill up on rice or noodles as there are dishes which will far outweigh and surpass these items in terms of flavour and you don't want to waste critical space when you might want to have an extra Peking duck pancake.

The service is always great, bookings are essential and if you arrive early, be aware you won't be able to be seated until you sitting time commences as the previous sitting needs to vacate the restaurant. I do prefer the later sitting as you are less hurried.

I would say, make sure you go with "unfussy" eaters as you need to be able to eat what is offered at yum cha. There are no a la carte options when yum cha is being served.

The restaurant is also quite noisy but not so you cannot talk to you dining companions. It may also have been due to the large table that was near us.

I will definitely be back to David's as the entire experience is always lovely and everyone raves about the food!

From our initial contact with David's, Adam and all the staff were helpful and pleasant.
We loved the whole ambience of the restaurant as we entered, with its sense of light and space.
Having ordered the Feasting menu for eight people, we were impressed with the delicious and varied flavours.
Our stand outs were the hawker style lamb, the sticky pork belly and the 'fish fragrant' eggplant but nothing disappointed.
The service was prompt and informative, with the added bonus of BYO wine Monday to Thursday, which is such a rare treat these days.
We must return, to experience more of David's delectable offerings.

Great food and great service here. Very hectic and noisy but translates into a fun energetic environment. My only downside is the charge for the tea.
"Did you want some green tea for the table" I (stupidly) assumed it was included in the YumCha. It wasn't and was and extra $20. Which was a lot to pay for a pot of hot water.

I would visit again but will be more careful to check if the item is an extra.

Staff were excellent! You can guarantee that you’ll have to roll out because you’re that full or be in a food coma for the next few hours. The food was amazing tasty and plenty of it. There’s a perfect amount of time between then next option, and you can order any you enjoyed. Next time I would bring our own bottle of wine because the drink prices are on the higher side. They also asked about any allergies which I appreciate due to having a nut allergy.

Food was really good. But I probably would like to see more varieties. There’s only 1 or 2 chicken dish on the menu and maybe 1 pork dish.
But overall it was fantastic.

Tucked away in a quiet side street, David’s is a hidden gem. Loved the very cool white decor - not what we were expecting at all. Service was very attentive and friendly.
The food was simply sensational! Every single dish we ordered was divine. The chicken and the pork belly were standouts. The dumplings were great too. Delicious desserts too - the plums and the roasted white chocolate were wonderful! And they were beautifully plated up.
We will definitely be back to try all the other dishes on the menu. Highly recommend!

Had a 6:30 booking, the restaurant was at 50% capacity. Our waiter was not familiar with the new menu and there was duplication on it.
We ordered sparkling water and some tea, both arrived quickly. We ordered some sashimi as a starter, dumplings, noodles and mapo tofu. We waited 50 minutes for food before the sashimi arrived. Curiously our waiter checked where our food was 5 minutes earlier. I asked how long it would be, only for our waiter to not return for 10 minutes.
We decided we were not waiting any further and would leave. We instructed that we would pay for what we consumed but they apologised and decided not to charge us.
A terrible experience, but the pad Thai down the road was cheap and immediate.
The restaurant ambience was nice, but it was an extraordinarily loud environment for the size.
I will not return to Davids under any circumstance in the future.

Amazing food and service. Loved every dish, especially the chocolate dessert dumplings and only wish we had room for more. A great place to show off Melbournes foodie scene. Also love the fresh scandi interior opposed to the traditional yum cha restaurant style, feels like a place for everyone. We will be back!

Delicious afternoon of eating a wonderful Yum Cha. Great service- a lovely assortment of food that was served efficiently. Great time. Only complaint is that it was not as cool as we would have liked- but in fairness was a very warm day. Lots of ice happily provided to keep our drinks cool. Thanks to the friendly staff!

David’s is pretty reliable. The food always good. It was a warm day when we went, about 33 degrees, and it was just very hot inside. It only got hotter and more humid as time went on, which made it a bit uncomfortable.
