    Gorgeous underground space. The food was ok, wouldn’t rave but if you’re looking for great dumplings there are better elsewhere. Cocktails were amazing. The service was average we waited a long time to get served we had to yell out to get attention eventually and things kept being forgotten like cutlery. Great vibe for some drinks with friends but wouldn’t go there for dinner.

    Love Uncle Ming’s! Our last visit was underwhelming however - table arrives was slow to non existent and wait in food and drinks was long - one of the bartenders had so much attitude which was disappointing considering what a great time we’ve had there previously. Our group of 12 had booked weeks in advance and would have loved to have spent at least double what we did but were only seen 4 times by wait staff over the course of our 4 hour booking

    As a lover of whisky and dumplings, what a better combination of the two! Worth a visit. We ordered one of every dumpling, which was a pricey feast, but would totally recommend! Our favourite was the dim-sum.

    Booked for a friend’s birthday. Ordered desert and asked manager to bring it with the candle as we are celebrating birthday. Everything was arranged and time discussed. 15 min later desert was just placed on the table without candle without anything. What’s the point to book birthday celebration if your staff is incompetent that much. Spoke to the manager and was promised another cake will be arranged with the candle. After waiting for another 20 min - nothing arrived. Very poor experience. Even sharing this experience with the waitress upon settling the bill - I haven’t heard any apologies. Do not promise anything to your costumers if you are capable to do it. Hire someone who is capable to handle customer’s complaints.

    Was a great experience overall, the food & cocktails were delicious but the music didn’t make sense in the environment. Would 100% recommend trying it out just be aware that the music is loud and club-ish. (4pm) Was just expecting something a bit more authentic.

    Great place to go with friends. Love that you can have some dumplings while you have a few drinks. Service was a little slow to start (but more because everyone was arriving from afterwork and all wanted a table and service at the same time) but once they got flowing drinks came out quickly and the dumplings came really quickly. Will be back again soon... such a gem of the city.

    Our waiter was great, the only thing that was a let down was how long it took for our drinks to come out. In the end we had to cancel our last round of drinks, but aside, would still come back as the vibe, food and tasty cocktails were still amazing.

    Great venue and ambiance. We had a group of 10 and the service was great for us despite how packed the bar restaurant was. Bc of post Covid protocols and how packed the restaurant was we couldn’t go up to the bar to order our own drinks, which would have been a better experience for us. Overall though it was a great venue with a speak easy vibe. Will be booking again.
