Cuisine: Chinese, Yum Cha

Over at Papa Chou's Yum Cha & Chinese Dining, it's all about authentic food to share with the whole family. Come to Papa!

Inside it's neutral and understated, unlike the food. If you don't believe us, their piggy bao buns come with a snout, eyes and little piggy ears. The bottom of a bao bun basket has never looked cuter.

Judging by the menu, Papa Chou is a very generous man! There's a dish for every taste, craving and dietary requirement. There are a wealth of chicken, duck, beef, lamb, pork, seafood and vegetable dishes as well as fried rice and noodle dishes to get your chopsticks around. Since you're here, try out some Sichuan speciality dishes, like the chilli beef and ox tongue, stir-fried shredded pork, pickle soup with fish and gon bo tofu.

If you've found yourself the victim of the chilli, cool down with a glass of the good stuff, a freshly squeezed organic juice or a reviving Chinese tea.

Great service from start to finish. Made to feel very welcome and menu advice most helpful.
We were both very happy with our meals which were extremely generous and very enjoyable.
We would recommend this restaurant to any body and intend to return ourselves.

First time there and it was a nice medium sized Restuarant. Service great and the food choices we had were absolutely lovely.

We took our two small boys and the staff could not have been more helpful and understanding. We tried 5 dishes and every one was delicious. Huge portions too. Would definitely recommend this place - great service, nice vibe and amazing food.

Great food and lots to choose from. Would be an awesome place for a big group of people! I really liked all the Vegan options too and everything was really well labelled. Service was great with a good selection of drinks too.

Our first First Table experience was fabulous! Service was on point, food was incredible. The whole blue cod cooked in soy was an absolute win for us! Thankyou Papa Chou team, we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our dining experience and even before the discount the food prices are very reasonable, especially when you see the generous serving size. The small size corn and chicken soup easily serves two or up to 4 smaller portions.and my husband and daughter really enjoyed the ginger and spring onion beef. I had the lemon chicken and we all shared the chicken fried rice. The dumpling menu looked pretty impressive and our daughter certainly enjoyed the chocolate and banana dessert dumplings..... worth a visit.

Most of the food was nice but the service was not very good. We waited for quite a while to be served for both mains and deserts and the water on the table was never refilled. One of the people in our group was also snapped at by a server when they attempted to order at the counter after we had waited for quite a while. The empty plates were also not cleared. Was rather strange since they weren’t very busy.

Pretty standard food, the chicken cashew nut was a standout and the dumplings and spring roll starters very plain. My main that was ordered as sweet and sour chicken was actually sweet and sour pork and it was chewy and fatty. The service would have received a better rating except for the fact that the lady who served and seated us had an ear piece and would suddenly burst into another language speaking to another staff member. This happened during our arrival, while we were being seated, whilst taking our order and at the end when we were waiting to pay........to be frank I found this rude and it did lower the experience of my evening. I note other diners have noticed this before, so maybe the restaurant will review this for the future.
