Red Mansion is our go-to restaurant for casual dining with loads of in-your-face flavour. We love the kung pow chicken and order it almost every time we go there, but the other dishes we've tried have been really delicious as well. The wine list is...More

Maybe I have been a little harsh with the 'average' rating as this is a decent restaurant but there a re clearly several ahead in the City's Sichuan stakes. Relatively limited menu but well executed. Serving sizes a touch small but again relative to the...More

I noticed the Red Mansion on a previous trip to Melbourne and had noted it to try on a subsequent visit as I do love my spicy food. The restaurant was relatively quiet but it was a miserable night. After going through the menu which...More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
