Lovely chinese restaurant

We had an early dinner at Bokchoy Tang before heading off to the Theatre. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. They make some of the best special fried rice in the city. The soups are delish. The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely and the service is of very high quality. One of... read more

Arrived at 2:00 pm on a Saturday afternoon and found the restaurant was very quiet with a couple of families being the only other customers I could see inside. I chose this restaurant because of its proximity to attractions around Federation Square. It is very well placed, being only a short walk from Hosier Lane, Birrarung Marr, the CBD shops,... More

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

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.
