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

You can't go wrong at Hu Tong !! The food is excellent and the service spot on. We tried several types of dumplings, all yummy and the fried rice is the best I've ever had !! They have take-away and lots of room for dining. Best to book as it is understandably very popular. Situated under The Cullen hotel opposite... More

Same staff as the previous ..just as bad. The so called manager is rude and has no social skills whatsoever. The guys making the dumplings smile why doesn't he ! He is a 'wannabe snob'. The trolleys are a most welcome addition. Friendly trolley operators with a vast array. A lot of fried. Still waiting for the cha sui boa!... More

In a rushed visit after a movie and before an afternoon appointment, my partner and I enjoyed thoroughly our dumplings and tea. We explained our position to the friendly staff and all just flowed so smoothly. Dumplings steaming hot (great) and so tasty. Tea cups were continually being topped up and we certainly received service with a smile. We ate... More

a good variety including some signature dishes. Price is reasonable, service is impeccable & fast. Early seating if you've somewhere to be, late seating if you want to malinger over several plates. If you haven't got a booking turn up when they open to get a seat.

This is one of the best places in Melbourne for well made and interesting dumplings. Although other dishes are available the dumplings are what makes this fine restaurant well worth a visit. Prices are not cheap but reasonable and there is an extensive wine and beer list from which to choose. The atmosphere is smart casual.
