Food was fine but surprised with the pricing considering the average ambience. Found serving staff very snobbish and indifferent. Wouldn't recommend on a day when u have other options. This one is open till late night, hence we had no option but to visit this one.

This is one of the good chinese restaurant in melbourne. The noodles are super delicious. i have probably been here four to five times and tend to eat mostly noodles and dumplings but have tried a few other dishes too.

Having lived in HK for a few years a while back i realy began to miss old style cantonese food. This place fills the void. Fast good cantonese favs, a wall full of specials and a good selection of freshly made steam buns makes this place a great spot for some comfort food. Lunch time its realy jumping so the... More

The place to go for easy chinese bun variety. The food is pretty good too for its class. I like this place but don't go as often any more as we try different restaurant. This is a good place to come back for some comfort chinese food when the pay-check is 'still' coming.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
