Had to wait 10 minutes for a seat but it was worth waiting for the food was delicious . Beware of the soup bowl sizes . The small bowl is enough for four people and at $7 is extremely good value.

Had a lovely banquet dinner after watching an AFL game in Melbourne. Had a short wait for a table but was definitely worth it. Didn’t take long to have a drink on the table and our first course. Very welcoming to children and pleasant environment....More

We like, whenever possible on our overseas trips to cities with a Chinatown, to find a Peking duck restaurant. Dahu is a very good one. Jucy duck and crisp skin. We liked it.

Go here all the time for peking duck and it never disappoints. While the other dishes can be hit and miss sometimes. Go for the duck then go somewhere else for another course.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true 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
