This is a great place. Highly recommend in particular for dumplings made on site by an army of chefs or a vast selection of Chinese food off the menu. This place is very popular, and often busy. So try to get there shortly after opening times. I highly recommend this place, genuinely teriffic value and a real highlight of Chinatown,... More

Since Hutong was established, dumplings have become quite ubiquitous in the Melbourne eating scene. However, their dumplings are still very tasty and the pastry was thin and translucent. The other dishes were also tasty.

Beautiful upmarket decor, we dined in their Prahran location, opposite Prahran market. There was a lady patiently toiling away behind a wall of glass, creating dumpling after dumpling. The food was lovely, apart from a plate of minced pork and green beans. The beans were fresh and piping hot, the pork was tepid and burnt. I was very surprised that... More

I am a fan of 'XIAOLONGBAO' for a long time. and i was so lucky to find out this cute little place couples months ago and become a regular. The 'Xiaolongbao'you have here is home made and taste so good. Thin skin with super juicy pork mince meat ball inside. Sometimes you feel you are eating a soup while you... More

I have been to Hutong a few times. Their Shao Long Bao are always juicy and flavoursome - in my opinion, literally one of the best in Melbourne!

Food arrived as it was ready which was fine as we were sharing a selection of mains and dumplings. Everything was delicious, especially the dumplings in chilli sauce! This is an... More

Cam up here to finish my lunch after eating terrible dumplings at Dumpling World. These Shanghai dumplings were $11.80 for 8. They had heaps of soup inside, thin Dumpling case and great flavour. Also had boiled dumping which were also good.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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 over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
