Came here on a recommendation that it was the best dumplings in town. If you come here, book a table upstairs. The dumplings were decent but I wouldn't say they are the best I've ever tasted. It's byo for drinks with no charge for corkage. The meals are also nice tasting. Would come here again to eat, really cute.

We had four baskets of dumplings including prawn and duck. We also shared ribs and what looked like roast chicken (someone else ordered, I just ate it). Everything was delicious and satisfied four adults. With two bottles of wine it cost $50 each. We did not have a reservation and they were very busy on a Monday night. They squeezed... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday but wanted some specific items from menu rather than then the yum cha carts doing the rounds. Was very difficult to get staff to bring us a menu and then to order food from the menu rather than the carts coming round every minute. Though once they realised that - after about 20 minutes...

Dumplings in entree were very good in taste. Could have been bit warmer but good taste put my expectations for mains higher. Mains were a bit average. Eggplants (vegetarian) skin was a bit chewy. I requested lamb cutlers to be medium rare...they came extra well cooked. Barramundi steamed was good. Desserts were a bit disaster. Chocolate ball fried was not... More

I have been to this Hutong restaurant a few times. I have always excused the service on arrival because the food has been good. (On entry they always make you wait for an extended period even when it has just opened and the tables are empty and they consult for a long time about what I don't know. It is... More

I absolutely loved this dumpling restaurant. It's so refreshing to have some nice dumplings when the offering in Melbourne consists of so many cheap and nasty places. I can't wait to come back here for fresh, hot dumplings and they also have a good wine list to match.

In our party of three, one vegetarian and the remaining couple asked for pork free items! Assured chicken and prawn dumplings ....definitely no pork!! Offered ginger prawn dumplings, chicken and chilve, chicken and ginger dumplings, yes they were pork free. One mouthful confirmed they had pork in them, predominately so. Eventually the manager admitted all dumplings had pork in them.... More

Fabulous food. The dumplings taste fresh rather than the prescriptive frozen selection typically offered around town. The duck was - well all I can say is my mouth is now filling with saliva!! Crisp vegetables. Immaculate service delivered by proud servers who know their menu and how to execute it appropriately. Perfect wine selection and super comfortable yet regal dining... More

The problem when visiting a different city, is local knowledge, but we were fortunate to be taken to Hu Tong Dumpling City for lunch, our hosts insisted on ringing at exactly 5.00pm to book explaining it was always popular and tables quickly get reserved.. he wasn't joking !! What an INCREDIBLE experience.. packed to the rafters (literally as we were... More
