Starhouse Chinese Restaurant is awesome! It\'s our favourite place to go to for YumCha... especially on weekends when they have the full trolley service. I love it so much, I dedicated a video to it... check it out here: https://youtu.be/xuN9ylbES14 (thanks to the team for mot minding me turning up with a camera and then also playing along with me, you\'re great!)

I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's currently my favourite yum cha restaurant. The normal meals are also so flavoursome and good value. The staff are helpful, if not a little forgetful about drinks but the service is efficient.

We eat yum cha very regularly here and have not once been disappointed! The food is so fresh and delicious! A little bit more than some other places, but worth it! Also we've had dinner here a few times and the food has been exceptional! The only reason I didn't give 5 for service is that they are sometimes really busy, but then again that's part and parcel of a good restaurant!

I have been recommended to Star House on numerous occasions and decided on Sunday afternoon I would give it a try. Upon arrival I found this restaurant to be very busy however there were plenty of staff on (20+) which meant there were no problems with service. The restaurant is very clean and the staff are well dressed in their Star House uniforms - the uniforms made it feel like your were dining at restaurant inside a 5 Star Hotel. The food at Star House is delicious. Being a Yum Cha restaurant we were able to try a range of dishes from Chinese vegetables to pork, chicken and seafood. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Yum Cha it is a great experience whereby you enjoy a large number of small dishes. Being busy there was plenty of food already prepared and being offered by the staff - this is great for people who like to see a dish before deciding if they would like to try it. Overall the experience was excellent and value for money was perfect. I will be returning again soon.

I dine here at lunch usually once a week. The food really is delicious and at a reasonable price. The staff are always quick to take our order and I have never had a bad experience. I would suggest Star House to anyone, especially those who like tasty Chinese dishes!

I visited Star House for a weekday lunch. I was lucky to go with a regular as I wouldn't have had any idea what to do without him. Each table has a single menu with minimal description & no pricing. I blindly piggy-backed on the order of the regular who ticked 5-6 boxes & handed the order sheet to a passing waitress. After a short wait the yum cha (or yim cha as their business card states not sure if this is how it's meant to be or just a typo) started to arrive one by one. The food was authentic with the highlight being the ribs in black bean. The sheer number of people at the restaurant just reinforces this. Following the last course we asked for the bill with no real idea of what to expect. In the end it was $60, so no qualms when it comes to value (but it was worrying not seeing any prices prior to this point). Will be back.

Best valued dim sum in town. Can't go wrong. Met by an very impolite and grumpy waitress that served us. Service can be slow on Saturdays for yum cha. Bookings essential.

Star House; good food, above-average decor for Gouger St, reasonable wine-list, particularly for a Chinese restaurant. ABOMINABLE service. It's a real shame about that. I've dined here on a number of occasions and all have dissapointed due to the really bad service; few if any drinks, tables uncleared for literally hours, no enquiries as to our tracking whatsoever. If someone could inform the waitstaff that the real money is made through drinks and, well, food, Star House would be a winner.
