Friday night dinner was very enjoyable. Didn't go with the banquet but all of our shared meals were good. Sesame prawn toast and calamari were the highlights. Prices were reasonable coming in at around $40 per head including drinks.

Beautiful decor and ambience but food was just ok and I suspect laden with too much MSG and salt. I dined with the kids and they were so thirsty after the meal. The tea selection was good. We had the long jing tea.

I had a fabulous Yum Cha experience today. This is a marvellous place for a solo diner, a couple or even a table for 12. Today's lunchtime sitting was a sellout. This is a great place for lunch. This is not a completely traditional Yum...More

I first started coming here years ago when it was just a shop selling amazing tea. Now it is a funky little tea house/dumpling restaurant. Staff are fabulous, food is good, tea is perfect on a winters day. Love this place.

Visited here on a Saturday night with a group of 7. We opted for the feasting menu for 6 and it was brilliant. Dumplings, spring rolls, pork buns, sticky beef, calamari, tofu, noodles and much more. The food kept coming and it was all fresh,...More

Actually, I went to the Chapel Street restaurant of this group. Newly opened apparently. Great vibe, sleek, funky decor. Terrific dumplings and lots of other dishes to choose from. Plenty for me as a vegetarian as well. Fast, efficient service.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Hi Jessica, Can you please confirm where you made the booking? Is it for the Little Collins Store? The best thing to do is to call the restaurant directly (+613 9600 4230) or book online. Thank you.
