There probably aren’t enough tables in Sydney to seat the hoards of dim sum lovers. Mammoth in size to accommodate the masses for yum cha, Marigold has two floors. And for the weekend sessions, it needs every single inch of space. They even open up the private rooms, and I’d bet Marigold would flip over the empty tins of Lee Kum Kee if they could. Not much of an interior, a bit aged and has been through some battles but that’s true Asian styles. “It doesn’t matter how crap we look, you’ll still come for the food” it screams. Can’t say it’s that much better than any other yum cha joint, but props for the generally good service. All the dumplings you know and love can be ordered from the cart ladies whizzing around. Cross your fingers as you travel up the packed lift and pray that the crowd isn’t pressed against the elevator door entrance, all clutching numbered tickets waiting for their call out.

3.5 / 5 yums!
Where? Levels 4 & 5, 683-689 George Street, Sydney
What? Depends on how big your eyes are.
