Located in The Governor Hotel in Macquarie Park in Sydney’s north-west, Jinja is now serving up yum cha across lunchtime service from Wednesday to Sunday.

Some of the highlights include crispy-skinned roast duck; steamed bbq pork buns; chicken and mushroom congee; honey-glazed char siu pork and steamed chicken feet.
Desserts include Chinese pastries and sweets like custard buns, coconut mango pudding and golden lotus paste rolls.
Drinks wise, a bottomless Keemun black tea option is available for $5 per person, along with an extensive tea menu featuring 17 styles.
The bar also stocks a large offering of Chinese spirit baijiu, along with a cocktails and a wine list featuring over 100 bottles.
There is also a chef’s choice set menu for groups of four or more ($70 per person), which includes a steamed dim sum platter, bbq platter, wok dishes and a dessert.
