Turned up on a Friday night maybe half an hour after opening. Already filling up but seats were available without booking. Our order was taken relatively quickly but food was a little slow. Didn't help that there was only one person at the front taking orders in the restaraunt as well as over the phone. Same person had to clear... More

We had a warm family party at Cosy Tasty trying a wide variety of dishes from their great Szechwan chicken to fantastic freshly served hot spring rolls we felt welcome into a casual family home where good food and taste matters most. Wonderful on a cold cold night but book first as they do get very busy...❤❤️

Visited Mornington Peninsula for a weekend sports event. Found a seat on Friday evening at 6 pm. Pork & Prawn fried dumplings plus Kung Pao chicken (spicy) with steamed rice ordered. All wonderfully fresh and delicious, as good as many cafes found on the Chinese-eating streets of Abbotsford and Footscray. The following night I returned for takeaway special fried rice.... More

Been there four times now the Dumplings are very nice and the Kung Po chicken is beautiful But if you want good friendly service this is NOT the the place for you.The waiters are more interested sitting at the back of the restaurant playing on their phones and dont even bother trying to order any drinks as they wont arrive.

We have been a couple of times and have loved it every time. We had some Chinese visitors stay in August and went here for dinner. The devoured the dumplings!!! I think we ended up ordering about 8 mixed plates. The dumplings ate better than the noodle dishes but they are nice too.

A last minute decision for a quick meal and we were not disappointed. Dumplings for entree were fresh and delightful. We chose a variety for the main course and were not disappointed. Service was prompt and polite. We will return

My partner and I came here for dinner on a Sunday late afternoon and got a seat straight away with no reservation. The people were friendly and the dumplings were delicious.

Delicious dumplings and main meals. Sometimes service can be quite slow (especially when it is busy). Take your friends, order a few drinks, have some conversation and you won't even notice the slow service :D
