4 of us visited on a Saturday night. One of our party was allergic to MSG and staff were accommodating and informative of her choices. All starters, mains and deserts were above average. Staff were all very professional. Prices were higher than average for a Chinese restaurant, but so was the standard of food and service

We have just returned home from Melbourne where we had spent 4 nights. Two of these nights we dined at this wonderful restaurant. The attention to detail and the service is always excellent. Both nights we had to have the Singapore Noodles! They are the best we have eaten anywhere. Nicely spiced with curriness goodness. We also had the Sichuan... More

I have been here numerous times and it never disappoints. The food and service is of a consistently high standard and Anne is a generous host. The wine list is interesting and good value. Highly recommended.

Our group of ten were well looked after by Ann who is the consummate professional and seems to run a terrific restaurant leading from the front. Drinks and food were top notch and we all enjoyed the vast selection with notables being the peking duck, salt an duper prawns and san choi bau , all the favourites there as well.... More

This is a very good place for high quality Northern Chinese and Cantonese food. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food came promptly. Prices are reasonable. We had a variety of dishes which were all good except the Salt and Pepper Prawns which instead of being salty and peppery were actually quite sweet and tasted slightly like... More

We have been here many times and we are never disappointed. It is a great place to take visitors from overseas to or celebrate a birthday or just visit because we are passing by and looking for good consistent Chinese food. We always have the Peking Duck which never disappoints. The calamari is excellent. The wine list is extensive and... More

Visited Bamboo house back in 2016 and was impressed then, and we returned recently and the service and food quality is still exceptional. Our favourite, Peking Duck was just as I remembered and presently well. The staff are friendly and quick to respond, and the décor a little upmarket from your normal Chinese restaurant. Situated further up Little Bourke Street... More

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.
