Best dumplings in town

It should be a criminal act to visit Melbourne without coming to get dumplings from this fantastic little restaurant. Best dumplings I've ever had, delicious filling packaged in paper thin goodness. Great place. Prompt service. Fantastic food. Love it.

Excellent atmosphere - a bit like being in Singapore - but at a Melbourne pace. The dumplings are super yum and high quality. Prices reflect the quality.

Wanted to eat in Prahran Market at the Turkish place but sadly closed. Chose to eat here again and be assured it will the LAST time. Same rude and pretentious manager. Food was average to poor. The dim sum were bland Duck spring roll was just vile. Not cheap. Final straw was when paying, the waiter asked if we were... More

Went here with a family group and a small child. The food was amazing and our waiter Raymond was very helpful with his recommendations. Food and service were fantastic for the price will definitely be back.

Char Sui Bao were dry, shui mai were ok. Peking duck was below par, and the sweet and sour barramundi was dull. I might have caught these guys on an off day as all my friends advised to go, however wasnt good enough for me to recommend or go back

We chose the set $40 a head dumpling menu.Watching the chefs dumpling making is fun. Service was perhaps the best I have had for some time. We took pots of tea @ $5 and they were refilled. There was a good tea choice. I do not recall all the servings but I found them and the dipping sauces to be... More

We have been staying for a month in the Cullen hotel in whose building this fine Chinese restaurant sits as a commercial ground floor "shop" and therefore we have passed by its windows often and it always seems busy. We have also noticed on this trip that dumplings seem to be the new vogue in eating so there is a... More

Though a little pricey, the food and service here is excellent. Great for when you just got to have xiao long bao.

This restaurant is quite possibly one of th best chinese i have been too. The food is absolutely delicious with the chilli wontons always being a favourite. Extreme caution however - do not confuse the Prahran site with the market lane which serves up absolute rubbish. Hutong in Prahran is a totally different restaurant with great flavours and fresh ingredients.... More
