Will never come here again. Very arrogant and snobish female owner. You dont simply tell off your customer when you yourself don't practice proper hygiene method in your restaurant. Very upset.

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
