Servers were really nice, the food was served quick, hot and fresh! Top dish was the fish head soup, and the long beans with minced pork was great :) Much needed for a cold day in Melbourne!

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
