Typical little Chinatown restaurant, and by typical I mean great! Teriffic value, lightning fast service, large portions of tasty Chinese food. This place often busy, and you can see why. I recommend this place, amongst other great joints in Melbournes Chinatown.

money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
