We enjoyed a varied selection of yum cha, dumplings, pork meat, soft shell crab and various prawn dishes. All were delicious. The restaurant was very busy with many locals and visitors to Melbourne.

We were impressed with the service and how hot the straight-from-the-kitchen dishes were. Our two choices were tasty, but we were surprised that the "seasonal" vegetables were so limited. A 20 year old restaurant that deserves its longevity.

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
