Took a chance and stopped for lunch here as it was close to our hotel...and very happy that we did. Meal was excellent....authentic Indian flavours with enough spice to bite without being overpowering. Worth a visit

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
