Fantastic food - those duck and mushroom dumplings are amazing. Happy tea and great service. This is a must visit every time I am in Melbourne. Very reasonably priced, too!

What an amazing meal we had!!! We ordered on the yum cha menu: vegetarian spring rolls, crispy prawn wonton, classic prawn dumpling, salt and pepper calamari and pork bun. All of it was divine! Will definitely go there next time I am in Melbourne!

Visited the oriental tea house solo whilst travelling for business. The waitress was great and made a great recommendation with the Chilli Wagyu Dumplings and the Pork Belly! Both were delicious. Thanks for a great fast experience highly recommend!

Quite the modern day kind of dim sum place that sets itself from the traditional setting I'm quite used to. Though it is still a dim sum restaurant, it's very nice in its taste and presentation. The beef and chicken (smokey flavoured) dish we ordered...More

Unfortunately I was a little disappointed. Oriental teahouse is always one of my go to favourites, so decided to try out Chapel St. The service was lacking, the food okay, again nowhere near as good as Chadstone...sad.

Hi Deb, apologies that our Chapel experience was not on par with your dining experience at Chadstone. We will definitely chat with the chadstone management and discuss areas we can change & improve on. Kind Regards Oriental Teahouse Team

Very busy restaurant - lovely Asian food and good service - a little noisy on a Friday night - plenty of choice and sharing seemed to be the go.
