If you like steam dumplings this is the place to go. We ordered a vegetable, steam dumplings and a rice with stir fried chicken 27th peanuts and it was wonderful. Price is not expensive.

Food here was fantastic. There was a bit of a queue but definitely worth the wait. Fast service and a good atmosphere.

Found this place via Trip Advisor, and really satisfied. Their services are good, the food also taste great. "Hong You Chao Shou" is my favourite. Their portion is quite big for one, but fortunately the waitress remind us about it. My family were happy with...More

Good, fresh and cheap! Delicious veggy or pork dumplings. I love cilantro soup. It is small place. You must be earlier or it will be a large queue. Anyway, I miss it so much!

The food is good & cheap. But it's not a place to relax. If you come by yourself you 'have' to share a table. The employees are quite rude & there seems to be no room for friendliness. Lot's of room for improvement in that...More

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
