Excellent food with interesting menu options. Loved their version of pad thai. Decor was nice also, but did find the bench seating to be a bit uncomfortable by the end of the meal.

This is the place to go for dim sum! Elegantly presented. The extensive Dim Sum menu includes typical dishes like sticky rice and BBQ pork buns as well as more unusual items.

We loved our experience at Mimimi. It was a brunch version of the menu and we got to share lots of different items - all of them very delicate and well done. The place is in the suburb but it is worth the drive.
Service was attentionate and very courteous, we were explained all the items and even offered to not have to choose.
Price is excellent and the value is great.
Go there ! It is a great experience.

We went for lunch time Dim Sum and were absolutely delighted. The variety of flavours presented in soft steamed buns,lotus leaf or wrappers were a treat for eye and palate. The chef was there to answer questions and make suggestions . We will definitely going back to try the rest of the menu.

Our daughter celebrated her birthday at Mimimi in November and raved about how good is was, so we went to dinner there this week. The food was delicious. The only problem is that there is only picnic table style seating, with no back. Not very comfortable for anyone who has any back issues. I would highly recommend Mimimi to friends, but I will also be sure to mention the seating with no backs.

One of my absolute favorite restaurants - amazing ramen and the steamed bao with salted egg custard will always be my go-to!

Went for the vegan festival and they did not disappoint. 7 dishes in total and a glass of wine. Each dish just kept getting better and better. Will definitely be eating there again!

Authentic and unique flavours for the area. A really nice experience with excellent and friendly service. After living in China for three years, this was a very nostalgic experience for me. We wanted to support a local business offering vegan options as there are so few. Definitely recommend!

Went to the vegan food fest. As a person who does not practice veganism at all this was a great experience. The food was incredible, the atmosphere perfect, and the head chef taking the time to come talk to us and ask about our personal experience was a very special feeling.
Thanks for the great food and service! Will return.

Vegetarian options were limited, we had the crispy fried tofu as an app, it was poorly seasoned and didn’t taste like much. I had the zen garden noodle bowl and was not impressed with the vegetables in the dish

In addition to the regular menu, there was a Dumpling Festival menu of 7 courses and a glass of white wine. We chose the dumpling menu and were not disappointed. Chef Ning is amazing. Every dumpling was quite different and served with a sauce which complemented it beautifully.
