Big Thumb is a great place to indulge in South-East Asian Cuisine. If you are a fan of the Yum Cha these dishes are only $4 a pop Monday - Friday lunchtimes. With large tables that sport lazy Susan spinning tops, its perfect for bigger group dinners. Also, a handy choice for a BYO, located in the ‘party’ district.

Very well known around town! This place has a great rep for delivering real, simple, delicious Chinese food. Yum Char from 11am-2.30pm. Thumbs up!
