Great food. Amazing dumplings with fast service. They are happy to bring you more food as you eat, very busy but we found it easy to to get a seat.

Have been to this bustling three level Restaurant for years and they serve the very best dumplings in all of Melbourne. The Sichuan Chile Wontons is one of my favourite dishes here. Accompanied with Jasmine Tea.

Melbourne Chinatown is a foody delight with excellent offerings everywhere, but Hutong is one of the best of a very good bunch. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed, but don't forget to book

We have eaten here many times, Unfortunately this time, we were seated upstairs with a very noisy crowd and just wanted to leave. It was unbearable. Noise does not normally faze us, but this was insane. The food was tasty and we love the theatre...More

Clean venue, delicious food and well priced dumplings - I was surprised at the high level of service. Definitely a new favourite.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true 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

I haven't even seen a gluten free option on the menu here... plus I imagine the choices would be very restrictive!
