Is this interactive screen the way of the future? Well maybe not but the quality and variety of food and drink was very good. The fried rice paper rolls bring back memories and we're delicious. The vegan dumplings were delicious and options for lots of different eaters. As for the range of yummy drinks I thought it was a nice... More

we dropped in for dumplings and it was entertaining and fun to order food through consoles even though their choice of dumplings is a bit limited. however, the spicy won ton was truly spicy and exquisite, the duck meat dumplings really tasted of duck and it was one of the best san choi bow we have had. added to the...

We had a great lunch here with friends. The food was good and ordering via the ipads meant we could order as wanted and everything was fresh. We did end u being there longer than planned and ate more than inteded but we did have a great lunch.

A real find in the middle of Melbourne. High quality and very tasty food. There were 6 of us so able to order a wide range of dumplings, wontons etc. All were fresh, served quickly and Yorkshire portions - that is 4 orders will comfortably serve 6. Oh and it is inexpensive. The decor is basic but because of the... More

Food was well above average, with each dish tasting as though it was prepared with very fresh ingredients. Restaurant is semi-self serve. Customers choose dishes on a computer screen and each comes out as it's ready. Staff was efficient but not exceptionally personable. Establishment is not fancy. Overall, a very good meal.

Met my friend here for lunch yesterday and was really impressed... yes the touch screen menu is awesome... but also the food was tasty and very reasonably priced. We didn't have to wait long for it to arrive and when we were finished, the bill was brought to us at the press of a button! Came back to work raving... More

Chose this restaurant for lunch while in Melbourne for a conference. Fantastic food and service. Once ordered food came out really quickly and the touch screens were great as you could see what you were ordering. I had the wontons in spicy sauce and the eggplant - both fabulous flavour and really generous serves. I'll definitely return on my next... More

In this restaurant you place your order yourself using touch screen, this is great for use because many times waiter messed up our order. Not really good if you have little kid that like to play with the screen. Food is great, my favourites is their softshell crab and prawn & scallop in egg white. The price is not cheap,... More

Hungry and lost (ish) after traveling down from Brisbane earlier that morning - we were dazzled and overwhelmed with the many restaurants we could choose from for a quick bite for lunch. We happened upon this place and have been talking about it like country cousins ever since. The touch screen ordering was truly a novelty to us, but also... More

I tend to eat here every time I come to Melbourne and always convince friends to go along. Ordering on the computer is easy and service is efficient. I recommend the steamed pork buns and both vego and meat spring rolls. All of the food is fresh and delicious
