Greta location and venue. From the outside it looks like a small boutique restaurant, but looks are deceiving! Hu Tong is a 3 storey restaurant, each level filled with different vibes and atmosphere. The food is delicious. We stuck to ordering dumplings rather than main dishes, and they did not disappoint! Service was quite good and everything came out in... More

The restaurant is visually appealing. The range of dumplings was good and they were very tasty. We only ordered a variety of dumplings to share as a meal. The service was friendly but very lacking...had to ask to refill our empty wine glasses (our wine bottle wasn't at our table) and our dirty plates were left on our table for... More

Hu Tong has some of the best dumplings in melbourne. Atmosphere good although a little loud. If you have children they are inclined to put you at the back of restaurant. Whilst I understand why I did not like the atmosphere at all, I felt we were anuisance because we had a grand child. Food however can't be faultered plenty... More

Very attractive restaurant with dumpling experts behind a glass window. You can watch their expertise as they make the famous soup dumplings. Very good service, at the dearer end for Chinese food in Melbourne but well recommended.

Dumpling Bar is a rather low key name for this excellent restaurant. The dumplings, buns and Peking duck are light, fresh and delicately flavoured. Lovely dark wood atmosphere, and attentive professional waiters. My nine year old daughter loved all of it, too.

Taken here for lunch today by friends and was pleasantly surprised. This restaurant under The Cullen had a great feel inside. The staff were friendly and super efficient. There were 3 of us and we shared quite a few dishes - loved absolutely everything. The wontons with hot chilli sauce were sensational. Hate reading about somewhere not being like an... More
