We were so disappointed with Mahjong for our last meal in Melbourne. The menu is all over the place making it very difficult to plan your meal. The dumplings were OK but very small servings. We spent $50 on our meal and left feeling hungrey.

I love this place! We've been a number of times, have dined in the back area and the front restaurant. We have dined off the a la carts menu and the yum Cha. This visit was yum Cha. Loved everything, dumplings, pork bun and salt and pepper tofu were stand out dishes for me. They have a great wine list... More

Hubby and I visited for dinner on a Friday night. We were greeted so warmly by the quirky head waiter - he really made our meal so enjoyable (although his friendliness and smiles ore off after we'd ordered!). The food was exquisite although definitely on the spicy side. We would absolutely recommend this place.

It's nice to have a different variety for yum cha including a nice range of main meals. The juicy porky dumplings are so good! We really enjoyed the meal and the relaxed vibe.

A lovely time was had by all we roughly ordered and then shared everything. It was hot tasty, and great dumplings some hit and spicy some just tasty but all very nice. Duck pancake and chicken mandarin great All ages enjoyed and the baby had a great time.

Arrived for dinner at 7:30pm on Saturday night. Were seated promptly and so off we went looking at the menu, trying to make a selection from the ample options. Problem was that every 2 minutes we were interrupted (by a different waiter) asking if we were ready to order - this of course broke the concentration/discussion of the selection and... More

Our party came here for a late Friday night dinner. All the dumpling dishes we ordered were amazing. We also had the mini numb wagyu bun ‘burgers’ - incredible! We also had free entertainment, as apparently the kitchen closed part way through our dinner. We ordered more food, and one of the waiters came back and angrily proclaimed that he... More

I've been here on 3 occasions; all to eat in the restaurant. All were fairly positive experiences. We live in the apartment block right next door and thought we'd just grab a take out. My partner asked what sort of curry the chicken curry was - a perfectly normal question to ask you would think. I have never before witnessed... More

Not your typical asian restaurant. The decor is fresh and funky the food is equally fresh and devine. A well stocked bar and friendly and attentive staff ensure a very pleasant experience.

Very average service at times. Hit and miss, even for regulars. Otherwise a nice, light restaurant with reasonably priced yum cha ,though you can find much better quality elsewhere in Melbourne
