I have worked in the customer service industry for 14 years and have dined in restaurants all over the world for many years and I can honestly say I have never ever encountered staff as rude as I did here!! Basically what happened was I ordered a pork and rice dish. The waitress delivered a pork and rice dish to... More

Educate your staff Nam Loong! I won't dine here because of your narrow mindedness, irrespective of your quality.There are plenty of other restaurants in Chinatown that are receptive to the blind. Wake up!!

this was just around the corner from our hotel and was always busy so we thought we would try it, we weren't disappointed. the staff were very attentive and the excellent food came out fast. very reasonable price for dinner and the wine & beer was a good price too.

We were a party of 6. They welcomed us and found us a table. This place is not huge, so you sit close to others. The food is amazing, so cheap too! Great before the theatre or a night out. The steamed buns are awesome!!

We actually ate in their other restaurant they own at 510/12 Eliizabeth Street(Could not find this here) but knew about this one from talking to one of the owners. This was near our hotel and so we had no need to "fight" the crowd to/from the centre. This was our second Chinese meal and was better than the first with... More

Stumbled upon this little China town restaurant and glad we did. Half the typical Melbourne price yet food and service were great. Will go again.

We have been coming here for more than 20 years and it still fantastic. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for chinese food in a friendly atmosphere. Don't be put off by the decor when you walk in. It is well worth the effort finding this place.

We Stopped by here twice during our four day visit to Melbourne. The first night after a show and followed the advice of our waiter and ordered the lamb hotpot with chilli oil. Fantastic! The BBQ pork was great too. The second visit we returned for the dumplings which are great value. Better than many in Chinatown.
