Visited this place twice when we were in Melbourne and we could not fault the place. iPad service makes it so much more convenient. Good food, quick service, BYO and friendly staff. Pork buns are to die for.

Delicious dumplings very reasonably priced. Definitely get the shaolong bao and the spicy wantons. Orders are placed via a touch screen which is novel and fairly handy as the wait staff aren’t the most communicative but with food this tasty it doesn’t really matter if...More

Have been here a number of times. Service is very quick, and food is good, especially dumplings. They have a very ingenious menu, with touch pad for ordering. Important to order only one course at a time, or they will all arrive together! 😁 Overall...More

My daughter took me to this restaurant which I would never have found. I was amazed with the touch screen menu. Quite fun really. You can scroll through and see what everything looks like then go for it. Everything arrives at your table quite quickly...More

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

I don't know as it's a public holiday. Usually open 11:30am - 10:30pm Mondays, but best to call after 11:30am to see if they're open. (03) 9662 3688
