Don’t be influenced by the decor and furnishings. This restaurant serves great Chinese food. Full of flavour. The menu must be 12 pages long and it probably includes every dish you’ve ever heard of. We loved it.

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
