We would not have found this place without a friend recommending it to us - we are not generally people to walk down alley ways - but this is definitely worth the adventure! While downstairs you can watch the dumplings being made, upstairs is a great spot where the staff, while busy, can interact with you and keep the dumplings... More

Arrived for lunch on Valentines Day at 14:25 - said they wouldn't serve us even though the restaurant is open fur lunch until 15:00. Poor customer service and misleading information in relation to opening times.

We were really hungry, so we tried the all "all you can eat". That was a big mistake. Why? Because all the good stuff wasn't on the all you can eat trolley. Dim sum is meant to be little parcels from the heart - but these we are bit too coarse and doughy, it lacked filling and therefore flavour. The... More

I dropped in here for a second time and wasn't as impressed as the first. We came at lunch time, and they were doing a $30 all you can eat trolley service arrangement. We opted to just eat off the menu, as the things I wanted to eat weren't included in the offer. I thought the service was poor compared... More

I visited here for am early dinner. Excellent attentive service, and very very high quality dumplings. The whole restaurant seems very well run, waiters seem perfectly trained to act with just the right balance of attentiveness/ friendliness and respect. Yes, great food presented in a very professional and polished manner. Many thanks!

Overpriced for what it is, reservations usually required. Probably wouldn't come back. In saying that, the peking duck is delicious.

Have been to their other location in Market Lane in Melbourne with friends and family which I recommend. We sat on the third level and absolutely need to book as ive missed out before from not booking. The service for drinks was quick despite the place being packed. The drinks for beers were decent and the food between four people... More

This place would almost be missed because it's located in one of Melbourne's lanes. Upon entering I thought oh, no,too small and there's a staircase . Not good for the grand daughter's pram. However the manager spotted us and very quickly set a place for us at a long table. We even were given a high chair. It was to.... More
