“Dragon Castle is an old school fine dining Chinese restaurant that specialises in dim sum. Drop by for yum cha at the weekend and every dumpling is made and steamed on site every day. There’s a pretty extensive non-dim sum menu as well and things here are a step above what you’d find in Chinatown. ”
