Visited Bok Choy Tang before a concert at the Melbourne Recital Hall. Nice and close to the venue. The food was delicious. Was a bit taken aback at having to pay $3.50 for each small bowl of rice. When I asked for a second bowl to go with my dinner I really didn't expect to have to pay an additional... More

We thought we would try Bokchoy Tang for a nice dinner after work, but wouldn't bother again. The food was ok, but not great. However, the service was very ordinary. We were seated around the corner, and were essentially forgotten about. We weren't asked if we wanted more to drink (water or wine) and the food was a little slow.... More

Nice food and relaxing environment. The spring onion pancake was fantastic. Enjoyed the chicken and duck dishes as well.

I have been here in the past with friends numerous times and had the lunch special for approx $20 with glass of wine. The last time I went they had taken it away. Ended up paying nearly double and had less dishes. Very disappointed and will not return.

We had lunch at this restaurant during the Melbourne Festival. All of the food was excellent and the waitress was helpful without out being intrusive. I particularly enjoyed the duck pancake and the steamed dumplings. We will certainly return when we are next in Melbourne.

Bokchoy Tang is in Fed Square, just over the road from Flinders St station. We were going to a show in town and dropped in early for dinner. It's on the 2nd floor, so not for people watching, just for eating. Everything was delicious, but the standouts were the duck pastry entree and the Sechwan chicken main course. Great service,...

I had obtained this Yum Cha for 4 online and am so glad I purchased it. The location at Federation Square was great and close to our Hotel. The Banquet Yum Cha was superb accompanied by a complimentary wine, beer, soft drink or Chinese tea. We chose wine for the ladies and the Chinese beer for the men. We also... More

Federation Square was a much quieter place in the evening after the AFL Grand Final than it had been that morning. With the thorough disaster of the momentous loss by the Sydney Swans Donna and I sought some comfort in our late dinner. Located a couple levels above the general open air square plaza in a high ceilinged space of... More
