Some of the reviews speak of substandard customer service, and we're Chinese so we wouldn't really know, but we do know that the food is excellent. We weren't bothered to go to the Market Place shop and were a little skeptical of this one- if you're thinking the same, don't be. It's a seriously good feed- the dumplings are awesome.... More

We went here with our son and his girlfriend, they have been many times and wanted us to experience the food here. We had various small dishes of fresh dumplings delivered to our table in super-fast time! My favourite dish was one with long green beans and some kind of minced pork, it was so, so delicious. I wish I... More

Where do I begin... this restaurant is something special. I have returned at least 5-7 times and have chosen the restaurant to celebrate many special occasions. What is so wonderful about this restaurant is that the food is always at a high standard (and is seriously delicious), I have NEVER encountered a problem with the food or service. I would... More

We went and got a load of take away dumplings for our new years eve party The wait was over 40 minutes, but fair enough, if they are good, its worth it. Unfortunately, we took home more than just dumplings, we found three hairs stuck to the dumpling casing of our pork dumplings. Gross. We also got ripped off on... More

This is a yum-cha restaurant in Prahran. Food quality was ok but we got ripped off a lot. Since this is yum-cha restaurant, whenever we got food, they marked on the piece of paper. We weren't that hungry so we didn't eat much. 2 of us should be around $65 for lunch yum-cha, but for anyhow they came back witth... More

We stayed at the Cullen and dined here one night during our stay. Food was lovely especially the dumplings, we were disappointed that one dish we ordered turned out to be not available and the service was prompt but not friendly at all and although we booked we sat in the room at the back with a view of an...

I've been to both Hu Tong restaurants in Melbourne. The highlight of both is the Xiao Long Bao pork dumplings. They're actually the best in Melbourne! I go to the Hu Tong's in Prahran for lunch every now and again because it's close to work. They also offer San Choi Bao and Peaking Duck which I don't believe the CBD... More

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.
