Unfortunately the food is nowhere what it used to be when Sung was the chef. Quality has dropped considerably as well as the service.Previous reviews advertised in 2009 under Sung should not be used to glorify now. 523Monicat

This was the worst restaurant experience. I would not recommend dining at Sung's Kitchen. Enter at your own risk.

I've only been once, for lunch when I found the place quiet. Three dishes were shared: some sort of battered squid, asparagus with something crunchy, and fish with beans (I think). The fish was exquisite, the other dishes were good. I will certainly be back...More

Sung's kitchen offers a different menu compared to your usual Cantonese restaurant. For those going for the first time I'd recommend to start with these following dishes: cold chicken salad, chili Antarctic crab (call beforehand to make sure they have Antarctic crab), wonton chicken soup...More

Sung's kitchen certainly deserves all the god reviews. The food is always excellent. I have mostly only eaten here for lunch and only once for dinner. My favourites are the salted fish and chicken noodle and the double billies chicken soup. However all dishes I...More

I have been to this restaurant many times and the quality of the food is consistently good. One of its signature dishes is chilli crabs with fresh noodles. Despite its name, the dish is not chilli pungent hot. The spiciness is so judiciously judged, any...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
