“Worth finding in the back alleys of China town.”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Looks dodgy from the outside, but don't be put off. Food is fantastic, service is fast. Will definitely come back here.

“A grunge place”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We were looking forward to an authentic dining experience but were a little dissatisfied. The chilli in the Sichuan dishes definitely had been modified to suit the western palate.
Whilst most dishes we tried were okay I wouldn't rush back as there are better places in china town.

“A MUST”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Just love this place and you can eat at 2am. Food is great. Busy nights you will line up and they will push you out ASAP but that's the experience

“Retro Chinatown charmer”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

On a side lane off Melbourne's main Little Bourke Street Chinatown drag, the Supper Inn has good Cantonese food and an antique charm, with a feel of having been unchanged since perhaps the 50s or 60s. The white-dinner-jacketed and bow-tied head waiter and linen table-cloths are a nice touch. On the cold July Wednesday night we were there its first floor dining area was packed. But it wasn't long until our party of four was offered a table and received attentive service. Duck pancakes, prawns and pork and a szechuan beef dish were all very good and efficiently served. Very reasonably priced including for wine. And even though busy and crowded, it wasn't distractingly noisy - the high ceilings probably help. Recommended.

“Chinese fast food at reasonable prices! Late congee joint too!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Visited here again and the quality and taste of the food is still as good! They serve fast so that if there was a queue out the front it moves quite quickly. Open till late so good for a late night noodle or congee!

Right in the heart of China Town
