Lost its cooking finesse

We visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and thought it was excellent, on a revisit it seems to have slipped a little. The visit was on a Monday night and there was only a smattering of customers. The wait-staff were very pleasant and attentive. The salt and pepper squid as an entree was a... read more

We have returned to Bok Choy Tang so many times. We first starting going because of the Entertainment Book which gave us a 25% discount. However, we return because this Chinese - Australian fusion meals are exemplary. The dumplings, the Peking Duck Pancakes, the fried rice, the bacl pepper beef were brilliant - however avoid the Prawn dishes where they... More

It's not often I have to write a bad review about food in Melbourne, because on the whole it's pretty good wherever you go. And being situtated in the very centre, on Federation Square itself, I expected good things. The restaurant is situated on the top floor of a building, accessed by a lift. The waitress was pleasant, and there... More

I was here for a large conference, so we had a set menu. While varied, the service was slow and no indication of timing was given by the staff. Most diners had left before the dessert was served, myself included. Much better places in Melbourne would have been appropriate given our interstate and overseas guests.

This restaurant is now long-established at Federation Square and because of this convenient location it is well worth a visit when in the City. The "fusion" menu has something for everyone and certainly suites my tastes. Based on seeing others around me, it also apparently suits people who obviously have very good knowledge of Chinese cuisine!

I decided to try the dimsum for lunch, and I was a bit curious to find how empty the restaurant was, despite the lunch hour. The chefs sounded relatively busy at the open kitchen, and the waitress was friendly. The food was ok, and the range of the price is about 25 AUD / person (2 types of dimsum plus... More

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 the staff was present at the... 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
