“My local haunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I visit Good Luck at least twice a week for a quick lunch when I am alone or for "Yum Cha" when with friends.

Their lunch menu has a wide variety of quick dishes - the usual fare of BBQ Pork on rice or Roast Duck on rice is very safe for the western palate, but for the more adventurous they do have other specialty chinese dishes. The Yum Cha dishes are always good and well priced for a restaurant South of the Yarra, in my opinion the most authentic Hong Kong style food you can find in this area. The rest of the asian restaurants around Prahran are laughable to say the least.

The restaurant has recently gone through new management but the food hasn't changed - still good and always well worth the money.

My usual lunch time eat is the BBQ Pork on rice or when I feel like Yum Cha, its the prawn dumpling, sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf and the chicken feet - can't go wrong there !!!!

“Good Luck - Good Dumplings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

Dumplings seem to be everywhere in Melbourne at the moment but I think this place is really worth trying out. Try the sticky rice and also the crystal prawn dumpling! YUM!

“Good Chinese dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

The shredded duck soup was the highlight.

The staff were efficient and accommodating. Food was served quickly and hot, which is what I expected.

There was a good selection of dishes on the menu.

“Good comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2008

This Chinese restuarant's decor is reasonable, but it is the quality of the food that stands out.

The dishes I have tried from the various soups on offer to spring rolls and main courses are served hot, and are tasty.

Prices are quite cheap - a little above 'bargain basement' but not much, which is laudable given that Prahran commercial property values have increased markedly in the past decade.
