A Very Good Fusion Experience

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... read 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

Mains were also very nice and food was served very promptly which was good as we were going to a show. The service was also excellent and will be booking... 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

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
