We walked into this restaurant on a rainy cold evening following a function at the NGV.
None of us knew anything about this restaurant. We were therefore very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food.
We started with different dim sums to share. They were all very nice; however, I would like to point out the crepe. Yummy.
The maincourses were equally plentifull and tasty.
I can highly recommend this restaurant.

Our party of three stumbled up the stairs to Bokchoy Tang about 6.30 on Sunday night after declining to wait 40 mins for seats at Chocolate Buddha (diagonally across Fed Square). On arrival we were immediately grateful for the quiet, comfortable space away from the city hubbub. And it just got better from there... the staff were friendly, attentive and proficient and the food was absolutely delicious. Even my husband's veggo, low fat dietary needs were accommodated with ease.
These days it's rare to find a restaurant that is conducive to conversation, comfort and good eating. We could not only hear each other easily, we had space on the table and around ourselves and the chairs were comfortable - what bliss!
What had started out as 'grabbing a bite' turned into something much more: a highly enjoyable evening.
Our warmest thanks and best wishes to the lovely people at Bokchoy Tang.

We visited on a quiet Monday night and found the food and service to be exceptional. We shared a banquet which gave a great range dishes to try and was more than satisfying. Wonderful flavours and textures. Best Chinese I've had outside of Hong Kong.

Good points: spacious and relatively quiet. Friendly and fast service. Reasonable wine list with some high-end Penfolds. Food is not cheap, but not overpriced either. Steamed barramundi was good.

Not so good points: Need to order carefully, as English was not 100%. My twice-cooked duck breast was too salty for my taste (may be OK for others) with not very interesting vegetables.

Another great vegetarian option. The yum cha is good and the menu is quite elaborate. The service is a bit slow and sometimes sloppy or might lack attention to detail but there's been times when they've been really good at it as well. If you enjoy light food (not too spicy) then you'll like the options on the menu. The spring onion pancakes are nice and Buddha's delight is quite well made. and friends of mine tried the duck and liked it. It's worth a try if you haven't been but don't hold your expectations too high.
