Headed here for dumplings with work colleagues. There is a large variety of fried, steamed and boiled options to choose from. The ones with chicken and beef fillings were excellent. Fried dumplings were good too. The stuff are friendly, but service is not the best....More

The service here is indifferent, surly, disorganized and downright rude. The food, however, is quite good. There is a varied menu which includes dumpling dishes as well as regional Chinese dishes you may not find in an average suburban restaurant. There are no bookings so...More

This dumpling house has a far more varied menu than just dumplings, including many more visceral offerings! You'll find traditional offal meals that Westerners don't normally encounter featuring pig intestines, liver and tripe. My only adventurous dish was a very mild foray into this world...More

I discovered this place whilst on a Melbourne Dumpling Tour. This little out of the way Chinese Restaurant has been around for 30 plus years serving amazing dumplings!

The positive reviews convinced me to try this place out. I would say this is a below average restaurant. I wanted to try their dumplings but every offering comes with 12 dumplings, I asked if they would serve me 6 as I was eating solo...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
