The honey chicken and the fried rice were splendid. We ventured to this establishment following a rave review in Gourmet Traveller. My friend was eager to try the dumplings however, I am sad to say they did not resemble the glory of the restaurant review. The honey chicken and fried rice (boring, we know) were traditional and excellent.

We loved the literal throng of diners, the efficiency of the staff and the wonderful, authentic food.

Lets start with ... we had a booking and we were ignored whilst waiting to be seated. Then a grumpy faced waiter known as Jaxbaby sat us down at our table and asked where is the rest of the party with his arrogant tone. Then when I ordered a specific dish and asked for a specific detail, he got it... More

I frequent Hutong as it's usually, clean, fresh food with great customer service. Sometimes I note that Yum Cha days are a bit slower than normal dining days. Dumplings are one of the best in Melbourne. My partner (Chinese authentic) who is picky on Chinese restaurants likes this one, she always wants to go back! So fast friendly service and... More

My wife and I were impressed about the quality of food as well as the comparatively cheap prices. We therefore ordered too much and were struggling to finish everything. Plenty of dumplings on offer!

Three of us dined in this restaurant last night based on reviews and the proximity to our hotel. On a Friday and Saturday they encourage two time options 6pm & 8pm. For varying reasons we requested 7pm and they accommodated us. The restaurant was humming on our arrival and we were seated road front where you can observe the bustle... More

Enjoyed some dumplings here after a trip to the Prahran market. Service was great and very relaxed, all the waitstaff were helpful and happy. The dumplings were awesome as too was the duck san choy bow. Definitely worth dropping in for a quick and reasonably priced feed.

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
