The kitchen on the display was clean and the food was ok. I didn't try their dumpling as they warned me that the restaurant will close in another 30 minutes and I have to order in a hurry. May visit one more time to try their much raved about dumplings...

Take the complimentary City Circle Tram and get off on Swanston St.. This is a very busy establishment for lunch. There was a crowd of people in front but they were able to seat the two of us promptly in the 1st floor. There is a 2nd floor as well. We tried the famous Siu Loong bao dumplings 8 for... More

Dumplings - well some of us are keen & some not so much. This restaurant could take our largish group at the last minute which is never a good sign, however it was all upwards from there. Well priced food, good wine at not to steep a markup, courteous and very prompt service & a waiter who joined in on... More

Maybe a little pricey, especially in comparison to most dumpling houses but you do get what you pay for. The quality of the dumplings is excellent. On a Saturday night make sure you reserve your table or be prepared to wait a while as it gets extremely popular - Top Tip: Hofbräuhaus next door do good beers while you wait!... More

We dined @ Hu Tong recently after a friend recommended venue. Unfortunately upon arrival we learned our table was on the top level > we were then seated in a very dark corner table. Attitude of staff & service very poor (like they didnt want to be there). Food overall was very good although the fried dumplings were very "gluggy"

My fiance and I love Hu Tong, absolutely the best dumplings we have had! The atmosphere, the food and the service all are great. We nearly always get the Xia Long Bao and the Chili wontons! this time we also got the Spring Rolls which were great too. We sat near the window downstairs and were lucky enough to see... More

Better than "average" but not "very good". Only table available was for 7pm and were told we must be out by 8.30. Service is so quick we could have been out by 7.45. Dumplings were good - would recommend the chilli wontons.

The xiao long bao is one of the best i ever had. Book early as there is a long waiting list for dining.

Probably one of the best in Melbourne. The dumpling menu is not extensive like others but the dumpling here is on a class of it own. It is pricy but worth it. There are many other dishes, they are ok but not on same pars with dumpling.
