Introduction Dim Sum means “touch the heart” in Cantonese Chinese. The small portions were designed to merely touch the heart not sate the appetite, and as such were first enjoyed as snacks. Over time, however, yum cha (Dim Sum served with tea) has evolved, and the cuisine is now a vital part of Chinese culture.

Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant is proudly one of the best and only Dim Sum restaurants in The City to create Dim Sum every day with the freshest ingredients and behind every tasty Dim Sum is the skillful hands of our lady Dim Sum chef, Mai Lan who has mastered and gained her expertise in Hakkasan restaurant.

The dough for steamed dumplings is made from fine wheat flour, potato starch and water, which gives it the characteristic chewiness, with additional colouring from natural vegetable sources (spinach for green, beetroot for pink, and carrot for orange). The Dim Sum is then stuffed with a meat, seafood or vegetable filling before being steamed to plump deliciousness.
