If not for tripadvisor review, we wouldn't have noticed this place since it is hidden in a back alley with inconspicuous sign and drab entrance. But each time we visit, the restaurant is full house. The steamed scallop with vermicelli is good so are the clay pot dishes. Very authentic Chinese cooking. If we visit Melbourne again, this will be the place to revisit.

If you are looking for some to eat late at night in Melbourne, there is none better that the Supper Inn, open to 2.30am. I love the Chinese Broccoli with Shitake Mushrooms and the Chilli Chicken Ribs. Both absolutely delicious.

The wine list is limited, but reasonable - I got a nice bottle of Momo Sauvignon Blanc, served in the smallest wine glasses you will ever see. The service is fast and efficient, and the food comes out pretty quickly.

It's not going to win any design awards for decor, it's pretty basic, but at least it has clean white tablecloths and a buzzy charm of its own. For what it is, I think it;s great, and look forward to my next late night visit.

Had different experiences on separate visits. Not sure if they have several chefs and managers that reflected on the varying quality of both the food and the service.

A touch disappointing - our memory of this restaurant from 6 years ago was that it was the best Chinese food in Melbourne. While ok, it did not warrant that kind of accolade any longer.

Don't expect flash decor or fine dining but do expect fantastic authentic Chinese food and fast efficient service typical of old fashioned Chinese restaurants. We have a family tradition every year of dining here, we order the same old favourite dishes and have never been disappointed with the food, service or value for money. Try the salt and chili chicken ribs - you won't be disappointed.
