This is our still our favourite go to for delicious dumplings, we still always get the same as the pan fried dumplings, chilli wonton soup and the xiao long bao. Service is always fast and friendly and it is always busy inside, they do have heaps of seating

We enjoyed dumplings and wontons here for lunch. Great to see the staff hand rolling the dumplings behind a glass screen while we ate. The restaurants was endearingly chaotic and loud during our visit! We had a reasonably late lunch and it was still very busy. Clearly a popular place. A fun place to eat and get a taste of... More

My friends have raved about this place for years, but for various reasons I hadn't been there until today. We ordered several dishes and they arrived nicely spaced out so our table was never too crowded. We used the lunch menu, and were very happy with our dumplings and noodles as they arrived, happily clearing all of the plates and... More

Enjoyed this restaurant a lot. Tried to get in and was full but was able to make reservation a couple days later for supper. Actually ended up having 2 meals there. Lunch and supper. Both were very good. Shanghai soup dumplings and the wontons were our favourites. But certainly everything we ordered was excellent. Seems that dumplings are a Melbourne... More

Given the broad spectrum of reviews here I thought I would put my 2cents worth in. I found the food excellent and the dumplings possibly the best I've had in Australia .my son and daughter in law took us and it may have helped that she is Chinese. We did not ask for the food to come out in any... More

Worse Chinese food encountered in along time, couldn't even commend them on cheap and cheeful! A main waiter all he could say was mao,mao which is no in Chinese. If you are gluten free forget this place. They bring things out on their own terms and food very average.

The family went for a mother's day lunch. All i need to say was WOW. The dumplings we tried were absolutely great. Service by the staff was efficient and friendly. Best place for all types of dumplings in Melb CBD Will definitely return to sample more of their delightful food.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
