Mellas never disappoints! Their prawn and coriander wonton soup is superb, you can work your way through their delicious dim sum menu and enjoy a taste delight! Not to be missed are the vegetable potstickers, spinach moneybags, sesame prawn toast and calamari.

Mellas has never disappointed me and my friends. The freshness of the products, the prices the smiles and attention of the waiters make this place one of my fav in town! Try the potstickers the specialty of the house who are just to die for.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch wanting some good Asian food, and Mellas didn't disappoint. My wife had the Vegetarian Egg Noodle, and I had Chilli Chicken Udon Noodles. Both were wonderful.
