Room was noisy. As we were a big group they put us upstairs and out of sight which was a pity as the other room upstairs was nice! Meal was good quality and staff nice.

Ate here twice in the last week. Had the tofu and veg - crispy veg and tofu was delicious, always get the steamed prawn dumplings! Plump and tasty! Second time round we had the Mongolian beef, pan fried chicken & prawn dumplings. Sooo good!

This is a great little place right in central Melbourne. Conveniently located on Swanston Street, it's very easy to find. The staff, who all appear to be Asian, really know how to prepare and present this style of cooking and if you have frequented, or come from Asia, you'll really appreciate this place. The staff are so welcoming and helpful... More

I eat here at least once a month. Steamed pork dumplings in chilli sauce are divine. Good service and my kids love watching the people making the dumplings.

Needed a quick business lunch & found here on a very popular day. Found a table downstairs, and ordered 2 lits of dumplings & they were very good & delivered fairly quickly. No chinese tea offered, and the water I asked for took a while to be delivered. I got a glass whilst some others got bottles. Good menu offering... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
