We had a lovely lunch with friends. The food was very fresh and extremely tasty. Lobster white omelette was very delicious and recommended. Also Pepper Steak was very delicious. The beef was melt in your mouth tender. Reasonable prices for quality food.

Large White table cloth Chinese. Each dish was excellent, particularly the Sweet and Sour soup. The Peking Duck came pre-encased in pancakes with thick pieces of succulent duck. Service was efficient and quiet.

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
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
