Absolutely fantastic. Saw this recommended on a television show and thought would give it a go. One of the best meals I have had in ages and very reasonably priced.

Friday night dinner was very enjoyable. Didn't go with the banquet but all of our shared meals were good. Sesame prawn toast and calamari were the highlights. Prices were reasonable coming in at around $40 per head including drinks.

Beautiful decor and ambience but food was just ok and I suspect laden with too much MSG and salt. I dined with the kids and they were so thirsty after the meal. The tea selection was good. We had the long jing tea.

Central Business District
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
