We tried Gyoza all over China Town but this was the best. Zucchini Gyoza highly recommend. Pork was very good also. A little out of the way in an arcade that looks like a shopping centre, it was definitely worth finding.

Wow! What a hidden gem. Locked away hidden in an arcade. We had the squid ink dumplings and they were amazing. The menu also had a range of other dumplings and dishes from noodles and rice dishes also. Great little spot for a appetising lunch.

This is not a posh restaurant. It's a cheap and cheerful dumpling shop - with quite simply the best dumplings I have ever tasted. Hot, freshly cooked, well spiced and seasoned, delicious dumplings. What's not to like?

There are no frills here just great food. The mackarel dumplings are so original and flavoursome. Any of the food is original you wont find it in the the run of the mill chinese restaurant. It also has an off shoot down near degraves lane...More

There is a lot of choice for dumplings in Melbourne and a lot of them are excellent so you can't really go wrong but the dumplings are especially good!

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
