The interior is dated. Hardly any people eating here. We only ate here as it was recommended but wouldn't go back, nor would I encourage anyone else to go. Distinctly average. Food was edible, sure, but nothing special.

I had dinner there once during my stay in Melbourne. I wish I would have had more meals there. Located in Chinatown, this place really feels like a part of China. The staff was wonderful and talked passionately about the different dishes. We got what...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
