Reviews for Big Thumb Restaurant

Beware of Big Thumb! They advertise $4 dishes for all items at lunch yum cha during the week. They are not!!! When asked directly whether the dishes were in fact $4 the server lied to my face and said everything is $4. Later when the bill was presented to me several of the dishes were priced at $10 or $6. Of course an argument ensued.
This restaurant actually called the POLICE to accuse my wife of trespassing when trying to resolve this issue.
Perhaps a better name for the place is Big Thumb in the Eye, Or Big Thumb Up the Bum

Went here with my partner for lunch. Very nice food and great service. Very warm waiters. They all seem to be honestly interested in satisfying our needs. Had some tender beef tripe that I was craving for, amongst other deliciousnesses. Amazing!

For traditional oriental dishes there are better places in Welly with more developed and refined recipes than big thumb. In saying that though the steamed vegetables were nice and fresh with adequate garlic and seasoning and the pork pot wasn’t bad. The salted steam chicken was very good in fact too.

Love this place. Their dim sums have improved so much over the past months and they do taste like those you have in HK now. Well done for trying so hard for improvements. I go there for dinners too, love the steamed fish, tofu dish and the sweet/sour pork with sesame seeds on top. Food is delicious and service is good. They are not pushy and not trying to sell you the most expensive dish.
