This is a modern approach to Yum Cha, every dish was piping hot and freshly made (none of the old school trolleys). I tried the dumplings, pork buns, salt & pepper calamari and Asian vegetables with every dish tasting great. A funky decor with loud...More

I took my mother there for Mother's Day and it was fantastic. Extremely busy but they still managed to give everyone attention. No long waits. Incredible food and a beautiful bar. Also, signature herbal teas that definitely make the trip worthwhile. Highly recommend it!

A good friend and I had lunch here and had a feast of dumplings. They were divine, particularly liked the duck and prawn ones. The atmosphere is very casual the service is reasonably good but the dumplings are to die for. Highly recommended.

The best dumplings I've ever had. Definitely must try. We ordered a few other things such as the sticky honey pork ribs, salt and pepper calamari and chicken fried noodles. They weren't bad but I've had better. Overall, i would definitely return and have some...More

The dumpling signage and pleasant facade attracted us to the venue. We ordered various dumplings, a dumpling salad (largely spinach leafs) and some spring rolls. The spring rolls were fine but the dumplings were so disappointing for a restaurant heavenly promoting them. We ordered the...More

Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and
emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with
specialty stores selling just about everything. The
famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and
vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor
