The restaurant was formerly known as the Golden Crown Restaurant. With the change of name there was a change of owners. It has transformed into a lovely Chinese Restaurant. They serve Yum Cha daily and the food they serve is of high quality.
The staff there were friendly and very attentive. Although when compared to Hong Kong, the variety of dumplings were definitely subpar, but when compared to all the Yum Cha restaurants in Adelaide, I think this would have to be my favourite one.
Scallop dumplings wrapped around with seaweed and sprinkled with fish roe on top was delicious, I almost had the whole four myself. They weren't bits of scallops, these were whole scallops on each dumpling. The skins on the dumplings were very fresh, they were thin and clear, and when you pick them up with chopsticks, they do not fall apart. The ingredients were fresh, and the prawns inside the dumplings were generous. One of my favourite Yum Cha dish was the BBQ pork buns. The bun was nice and soft, the dough was not sweet unlike other Chinese restaurants, and the filling was just right. One of the other dishes we had was wrapped around in a leaf. This one was interesting, the dough was slightly sweet, and there was minced meat inside. I much preferred the savoury dumplings myself.
Awesome Chinese food!!
If you want some quick and decent Chinese food for dinner, I can recommend Little Canton. Chicken sweet corn or hot and sour soup for entree, an excellent way to start the meal.
One of my favourite was the Japanese tofu with seafood wrapped in lotus leaf. The tofu was lightly fried, but light and silky inside, topped with a delicious sauce with seafood and a hint of chilli.
The seafood basket was very interesting, usually the basket is made out of fried noodles. However this was the first time I have had with fried wonton skin, it resembled the shape of a basket. The wonton skin was crispy thin still and held all the seafood together. By the end of the dish the skins were a little soggy. I would have much preferred the fried noodles based basket instead, it would be crunchier.
Steamed chicken was nice and tender. It was topped with oyster sauce and served with bok choy. A light and easy dish to eat.
King prawns with vermicelli hot pot was also delicious, there were many prawns in this dish. It was yummy in my tummy!!
