Not sure why this place is so packed and popular as the food is only average and what you pay for is not worth the price tag. A fancy Asian restaurant that is over priced. I've eaten better at a more reasonable price else where. The tables are so close together that you can hear the next table's conversation -... More

This place is THE place if you want great quality Asian food, with some differences. Service is friendly, and the prices are rock bottom, yet the standard of produce is right up there. The "Pop Chicken" was so unusual, but so good, and the serves generous. I could write more but just go there. Living in South Melbourne you have... More

The food was excellent and the service was great. Tucked- away on a side street, it was obvious that the locals in the area loved this place too. The staff managed the busy eat-in and take-away very efficiently. Would definitely eat here again!

Interesting menu with great choices at cheap prices - the pop chicken is of local legend! A good variety of specials too. Portions are generous and service is fast and friendly, even at the busiest of lunchtimes. I would definitely recommend. Takeaway is also available.

Living in South Melbourne you have a wide choice of restaurants and this one in Wells Street is one not too miss. If you do not book you have a long wait outside to get. This a great indication of the food quality and service.

If you want a cheap meal and love an Asian flavour, then I suggest you indulge. When I travel to Melbourne for business, this is my go to place. Great variety, takeaways within 15 minutes and eat for less that $20.

We enjoyed the originality of the food which is shared by the owner who is from Tiawan. All the servers and food is delicious. Was our favorite place to eat in Melbourne. The servers are especially friendly and helpful in making your choices of foods.

Wanted to try something a bit different so wandered up to Peko Peko from our accommodation. Cool decor and an interesting menu, but was disappointed with the satay beef and the fried rice. Pop chicken was good and prawn dumplings nice. Good value. Service was slowish and not great but it was a Friday night and reasonably busy. Overall would... More
