I tend to eat here every time I come to Melbourne and always convince friends to go along. Ordering on the computer is easy and service is efficient.

I recommend the steamed pork buns and both vego and meat spring rolls.

All of the food is fresh and delicious

Shao Long Bao dumplings are my favourite and they make them as good as they come. You order on computer so it's a really effective way to get in and out for lunch. The food is good hot and quick. You don't have to wait for staff to take your order. you can order as you go and you can see the food being made as you come in. It looks small but there is a larger section down stairs.

Restaurant is located at China town, opens at 11:30 for lunch. Ordering is done through a touch screen hanging on the wall in Chinese & in English. The dumplings are made at the restaurant and some of the noodles are made there. Their food is authentic according to a Chinese acquaintance.
The food is good and cheap, servings are of the right size.
Service is quick and efficient, though I saw one of waitress sneezing without covering her nose.
In conclusion, food is ok, not fancy, affordable, quite clean, though they should try to clean the tables properly, there were traces of oil spots.

Food is ordered via a tv screen, noodles and dumplings are made fresh. You can view the chefs making the food through the windows. Great food, clean restaurant, very affordable.

Stayed in Collins St Melbourne for a break earlier this month so we walked around checking out the dining options, Chinatown was on our list and we stumbled onto China Red we first went for lunch and were impressed with the food we went back the following night for dinner, enjoy.
