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

I don't know as it's a public holiday. Usually open 11:30am - 10:30pm Mondays, but best to call after 11:30am to see if they're open. (03) 9662 3688
