Went for a birthday dinner and it was nice. Prawn rice paper rolls were delicious as was the Peking duck which unfortunately couldn’t be made at our table due to COVID. The sambal chilli prawns were underwhelming with little flavour. Just didn’t feel as special...as previous visits but this could be because the layout has had to change with COVID. Will be back to try again another time.More

Due to Covid19 restrictions in Melbourne, l decided to order some Asian food for our dinner in celebration of my birthday. I spoke with Leigh who was very friendly and obliging with taking my order for delivery the following evening. Our food arrived by another...friendly gent - the array of dishes were delivered hot ! We ordered Peking Duck pancakes, Honey King prawns, Cha Kuaw Tou, Char Sui, Rainbow Beef and of course, some special fried rice. We enjoyed all dishes and decided that we shall dine in this restaurant once COVID restrictions ease. To top off a great night, Ginseng provided a nice bottle of wine, with their compliments!More

We don't really sample the menu here, we just go for the Peking Duck! Great place for birthday, family meals.

Mainly carrot and veg . Disappointing when you order 3 of them at over $7 dollars each and the chicken is minimal in each. I was very disappointed with this dish. I can compare as I have had this dish all over the world.
