Arrived to a very happy man who seated us, ordered food and drinks all which came very quickly. Staff were very hospitable and could not do enough to help us. Food was great, fresh and really tasty. Food, value and service all 5 star. If you like Asian food this place is a must.

Hu Tong was a great choice on a rainy Saturday night. It has a relaxed environment where most people will feel comfortable. The food quality was excellent, dumplings yum and the peking duck hit the spot. A place to definitely return to. I suggest you make a booking to ensure you get in at the time you want. Dinner was...

We chanced upon this restaurant because we wanted to eat at the restaurant in front of it but was still closed. So we decided to try it. They make their dumplings right on the spot and they tasted so good. We ordered several kinds and they were all good, we ordered their special fried rice but nothing special about it... More

I'm a lover of good dumplings and when I was last in Melbourne, my good friend shuffled me off to his favourite Dumpling place, Hu Tong. We ate and ate and ate some more. The food was sooo good and very satisfying. As most eateries in Melbourne, this place is probably a bit on the pricier side, but it's well... More

Great spot for dumplings. The range is consistently good. A broad range of wines at resonable prices. The only downside is the 2pm sitting which has far to many cooled plates going around and around in a effect to reduce waste from the kitchen !

I shared a meal of steamed dumplings with some colleagues, there was a great selection on the menu, steamed and fried (steamed - for those 'my body is a temple' types...) we enjoyed what seemed liked made to order, hot out of the steamer soup dumplings at just the right temperature and some outstanding chilli wontons and two servings of...

I've been to this restaurant in CBD, Melbourne, one Sunday night with a group of friends. We shared a number of dishes but the best were certainly the dumplings. There's a great variety and all of them were excellent. Portions are generous. Prices might be slightly above other dumplings' places but definitely worth. A place to go back again and... More
