There's several elements that we, the punters, prize in a restaurant. The quality of the food - obviously; the location of the restaurant; and the way in which we are treated as patrons. The fly-by-night/in-it-to-win-it restauranteurs don't worry about quality. They want quantity - in...More

Love this restaurant and always visit when I'm in Melbourne. Great atmosphere and food. Sometimes have to wait but don't you at all the good places?

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
