Top quality Chinese restaurants in the heart of Melbourne's China town. They had a lot of choices on the menu but we stuck with some of the waiters recommendations. You should try the crispy beef for main, it's sticky as expected but has a great flavour. Side order Singapore noodles was a treat and entree we had a variety of... More

Bamboo House staff were welcoming, provided great assistance with the menu and wine and provided a great meal. The food was tasty and fresh and the 6 of us who dined all agreed the food was fantastic. It's not cheap, but well worth it.

4 of us visited on a Saturday night. One of our party was allergic to MSG and staff were accommodating and informative of her choices. All starters, mains and deserts were above average. Staff were all very professional. Prices were higher than average for a Chinese restaurant, but so was the standard of food and service

We have just returned home from Melbourne where we had spent 4 nights. Two of these nights we dined at this wonderful restaurant. The attention to detail and the service is always excellent. Both nights we had to have the Singapore Noodles! They are the best we have eaten anywhere. Nicely spiced with curriness goodness. We also had the Sichuan... More

I have been here numerous times and it never disappoints. The food and service is of a consistently high standard and Anne is a generous host. The wine list is interesting and good value. Highly recommended.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
