    Food- average Service- poor Ambience - ok This place has been on my list of restaurants to try for ages. Finally booked a meal there for a Saturday night. Was looking forward to it all week. Unfortunately I have to be honest. it didn’t deliver.

    We had high expectations for Lucky Tortoise. The ambience and service was great. However, we were slightly disappointed by the value for food, we left the restaurant hungry which shouldn't be the case. The 'All In' portion sizes weren't enough food for the price.

    Unfortunately we did not think the food was anything special and not worth the price tag. The food was primarily vegetarian based which doesn't warrant the price tag of $28/pp to sample the menu. At the end of the day, only a few things are actual dim sum style items and we were left eating somewhere else due to not being fulfilled.

    The food was lovely and the concept great of how the plates are brought to the table and to a certain extent shared. However there was a mix up between two of our plates, one with meat and one vegetarian so the non meat eater received meat in one of their meals. We just marked this down to a mistake. It was the abrupt farewell we got which ruined the evening. Our plates had just been removed, the waiter had asked us which was our favourite dish and we were finishing our drinks when a waitress arrived, shoved a card machine in our faces and asked 'Is this what you spent'. There are more polite ways of telling customers the table is required.

    We had a great experience! We did the "All In" option, where you get a sample of every dim sum. It was the perfect amount of food for 2 people, and we left satisfied. The place is very small, and it felt cramped when it was busiest. But it was worth it for the great food and ambience.

    Everything was fine but not great. Had the all in menu and was left a little underwhelmed. Some things were great while things like the Baos and Gyozza were very disappointing.

    Really great find. Lovely selection of dishes in the all-in. Both waiters were excellent at explaining how the menu worked and explaining the dishes and service was outstanding. We got a really great introduction to all the different Dim Sum dishes including the bao buns, dumplings, Kim chi, panjeon etc great experience.. definitely worth another visit.

    Excellent japanese food everytime, with almost all options available as a Vegan or Vegetarian option. Great place to go for lunch (possibly the best value lunch around), but also with a group of people - worth getting the 'all in ' so you get to taste everything

    I wouldn’t recommend this place. We went to try the baos and they didn’t have any.

    Really good, love the set menu and sharing plates. Maybe portion size a little small (veggies got bao but no dumpling, meat-eaters got dumpling but no bao - kind of expected to get both based on description) but otherwise great!

    The fact that the restaurant was busy on a weekday evening tells so much about this place. The food is great , is a value for money. The menu is limited , there are only 2 beers, and few wine. The taste of the dumplings are really good. The staff is warm and nice too

    Always lovely team working at LT - so friendly and fun. Food was delicious, as usual, but I'm not convinced about the Fizzy White on tap - I didn't think it tasted great, particular for the cost. I'll be back, though - it's a lovely place.

    We had a really disappointing meal here this evening. The service was extremely slow and they forgot 2 our dishes - it was 8:05pm and we asked for them and they said we could have them plus 1 extra of each but we would have to take them away. I understand that there is an hour and a half time limit on the tables but when it wasn’t our fault I think to be told we had to leave is not on. There’s so many more restaurants we can go to that we won’t be thrown out of. Not a pleasant experience.
