We normally go to this restaurant for dinner & decided to try their Yumcha. So surprised to see people queuing up even before the restaurant opened. Not surprisng, the food was great. Advance booking is a must for Yumcha, especially on weekends.

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
