You'll have to go down an alley and up some rickety stairs to get to this place, but when you find it, it's a real gem! The food is fantastic and the wait staff were really helpful. There is a $20 minimum per person, but if you're going for dinner that's an easy amount to spend.

Supper Inn offers authentic Chinese food at a very reasonable price. The place is always crowded so go early if you want to avoid a queue..We had claypot taufoo and fried crab in superior sauce over a bed of noodles, Both were extremely delicious and portion is big.They also serve congee for supper.

My friend told me about this place and it didn't disappoint. There isn't much charm to the place but the room was packed so we knew it must be good when we came in. My husband is a bit of a sweet and sour Pork aficionado and said this was the best he's ever had.

Supper Inn was one of those happy places i grew up with living in melbourne. The go to place for a late supper. Serving great chinese food varieties but famous for their congee, pippies in xo sauce and roast meats. Service was good if not great but you would always leave happy. Fast forward 10 or so years and things... More

We accidently found the Supper Inn after an afternoon drinking cocktails. We had heard good things, so we thought it was worth a try. The food was AMAZING and so cheap. Whilst the décor isn't flash, when the food is that good, who cares. Service was very prompt. Worth a visit.

This Chinese Restaurant survives well against massive Chinatown competition and the reason is obvious. It was recommended to us by the bar people in the local pub and we soon found out why. Service is basic busy Chinese restaurant style with not much of a wait to get served even on this busy night. But the food is magnificent Chinese,... More

This is a hidden gem for late night night eating. Fantastic food, with many different dishes to choose from. Early dinning will probably require you to wait in line on the stairs, but either way you won't be disappointed with this Chinese eating house.

I love this place. Reminds me of Chinese restaurants in Australia years ago, always Cantonese style and always owned by Hong Kongers. Food is fresh and quality, who cares it's a bit expensive for Chinese food but come on we're talking the CBD not the burbs. I don't think this is a "late night feed" place anymore but a good...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
