“My favourite Chinese in Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is probably my favourite Hong Kong style restaurant in Melbourne. The food is consistently good, over many, many visits. Personal favourites are the peking duck and the roast pork, although the seafood is also excellent. The complimentary small bowl of soup to start is a nice touch.

Prices are very reasonable. A very satisfying meal can be had for around $30 pp.

The decor isn't up to much and the service is off hand at best. This really is a case where the food is the only thing that counts. Usually always busy - it's best to come early, around 5.30-6.00, if you don't have a reservation. You won't be encouraged to linger - this is strictly a place to eat and then leave.

“Good chinese, fast and affordable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

If you like Cantonese cuisine The Pacific Seafoof BBQ House will not disappoint. The menu is typical of most Chinese restaurants and the food is fresh, quick and satisfying. The service is well-organised and prompt but not necessarily friendly and dont expect eye contact from the cashier! But hey it is not a place to expect genuine service all the time as long as the food is consistently good.

“One of the better ones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

With all the Chinese restaurants in Melbourne, this is one of the better ones. The food had the taste and flavour of good HK/Cantonese cuisine. Only the Peking Duck was slightly under par. The place is busy and bustling and service can be a little brusque (which is quite common with Chinese restaurants).

“A typical good and busy Chinese restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

A bustling place, well patronised, with good traditional Cantonese food. Live fish and crayfish. Prices reasonable. BYO or licenced. Like most Chinese restaurants, the service is a bit indifferent.
