CUSTOMER demand for “the best authentic Chinese cuisine” has brought Dragon Palace to Joondalup.

The massively popular Dragon Palace Group, with headquarters in Northbridge, opened its newest store on Boas Avenue in January.

Owned by Maggie Cai and managed by Kenji Kam, the store is part of the group’s development project to expand in 2018.

Mr Kam said they intended to open more restaurants later this year, with the locations currently top secret.

“We intend to open up a few more new restaurants in major suburbs and the city this year,” he said.

“As our loyal customers requested, whom travelled all the way down from up north to dine at our Northbridge headquarters, we listened and here we are in Joondalup.

“We are here to serve one of the best authentic Chinese cuisine, dim sums and sophisticated drinks.”

Chef Shek Hung Tse.

Mr Kam said with the move north, there wasn’t too many competitors and establish a new yum cha precinct.

“We’re famous for all sorts of dumplings and our extensive yum cha items served fresh daily including fresh barbecue pork buns, spring rolls, signature chilli salt and pepper squid tentacles, soft shell crabs, congees, rice flour rolls, egg tarts, and coconut milk sago desserts,” he said.

“We hope to bring a brand new yum cha precinct, dine-in place for authentic Chinese cuisine and a chilled out restaurant bar for local residents in the City of Joondalup.”

Although the Northbridge branch is a karaoke bar too, the Joondalup location will remain as a restaurant and bar only.
