Wanted something quick and this place looked like a safe bet - quite busy on a Tuesday night, about half-and-half tourists and locals. Ordered the salt and pepper squid as it was one of the dishes advertised on their window. Unfortunately it was awful -...More

The food here was terrible. You couldn't pay me to eat here again. AND they serve SHARK, which is well known to be very unsafe to consume.

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.

I loved everything I ordered here. If you're in Melbourne - I would recommend a special stop just to eat here. I had a prawn/avocado wrap thing that was one of the best things I've ever tasted. The restaurant was packed, but we didn't have...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
