Great food, service and atmosphere. We went to the Brunswick St restaurant this time instead of the city. The food was just as good.

You get 5 courses for a set price. Very delicious. I would recommend the lamb ribs, duck salad, wagyu beef and the Baramundi. The fried chicken was really average. Portion sizes were good for the price.

A friend of us suggested this restaurant. We sat at the counter and enjoyed a mix of five meals and a good beer. Good value for money!

Could not have enjoyed this restaurant more. Excellent food - enjoyed every plate. Value for money - we couldn’t barely fit the 5th plate it. Cocktails were delicious. All in all perfect Melbourne dining experience.

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
