We had a function here upstairs prior to A game at the aami and it was ideal. Great food and plenty of it. Some issues with service as they didn't have enough glasses to cope.

Always friendly staff. It’s a good place to grab a bite before a show or movie. Meeting up with friends is easy, parking not too bad. Food is delivered fast and hot.

This was our central location for the group. Just a nice wee Irish bar with good service and good wholesome pub food.

I came here with my son and our meals were both very nice.I would have preferred my vegies with the hotpot cooked a bit more but that was about all. I did find some of the meals quite expensive however.

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
