Had dinner here with the wife whilst on a trip to Melbourne. Food was amazing....try the croquets. Every course was superb. Wine list was pretty good and service was simply first class....genuinely warm, knowledgeable about the menu and unobtrusive. Highly recommended!

We had a pre-theatre meal and were finished well within an hour, with mains and desserts. The restaurant has a classy feel and the service is really good-so unusual these days. The food was really nice, especially the basil ice-cream, part of the ice-cream platter....More

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
