The Verdict

Looking for a dumpling house with a difference? Look no further than Shy John—a two storey brewery AND yum cha joint at Yagan Square.

From Ian Chin—the legend that brought us Ramen Boy, Noodle Forum and Hiss and Smoke—Shy John is the home to some amazing craft brews, authentic Cantonese eats and seriously epic dumplings.

Make sure you get your hands on the signature dumplings—the team uses charcoal to colour the wrappers and then paints them gold—but you should also try the truffle and scallop dumplings as well as the squid ink noodles.

If killer eats and beers aren't enough to get you excited (who are you?), throw in some tasty cocktails and buzzy vibes and that should get you across the line!
