I was staying in the hotel in the same building and take away looked good. Price was excellent and from Tripadvisor reviews I was tempted to try(so many other places nearby that it is hard to choose) I was really pleased with the quality of the meals and the price was fantastic, not to mention that I did not have...

This restaurant is tucked away just off Bouke st in Melbournes famous China Town. A lovely quiet restaurant with smart yet modern decor (not the usual cheap Chinese decor) once inside you feel the service is quite fabulous as all meals are served and dished up individually for you upon request. The menu has many great choices to select from... More

We visited this Restaurant in Cohen Pl. Chinatown in Melbourne for the third time on Monday the 9th February 2015. Previously we had enjoyed the friendliness of the Waiters, the relaxing space between tables and the food! Monday night it was so disappointing! I ordered a whole Lobster, the menu described it as being able to be cooked in anyway... More

Situated in a little square, just off Little Bourke Street, TeaHouse offers classic Chinese fare, in a classically formal Chinese style decor. Don't expect anything "cool" or "fusion" as per the latest trends. Rather, it is a calm, hushed space away from the bustle of the busy street. Very clean, with attentive (but not overly so, just perfect) staff. We... More

Had a large family gathering. Requested one round table, and pre-ordered from the menu. All our requests were catered for. The premises are well kept. The staff professional and helpful. The meal was beyond expectations. A fabulous spread. Very good wine list. I would happily return.

This is a very hard restaurant to find. Cohen Place does not come up on a Sat Nav and for 45 minutes we hunted being led up the garden path by ours. Finally we phoned them and they guided us to it. The restaurant is just off Little Burke St in China Town and you can see it from the... More

My daughter and I on a recent girls weekend away, needed a good meal, quick service without being rushed. Daughter chose San Choy Bow (chicken) which she declared the best she'd ever had. Not your average china town offering. This place is classy, up market &definitely special occasion, but well worth searching out in its back alley location.
