The kung po chicken rice full of vinegar taste. The sand bun is full of sugar and over cooked. The tea not even warm. Overpriced for the quality of food. Will never go back :( strongly not recommend anyone to go.

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
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
