Big portions of food served and service is fast. Didn’t get my full mark because they expect you to self-service the water and bowls after ordering. However no big isuse for that as the most important thing is they served delicious Chinese food.

Very quick service, well priced, and the meals were very tasty. But the resturant was a little hot in there on the ground floor, even though I think they had the air conditioner on.

It's very authentic & cheap. Best kind of comfort food. Service was ok, just didn't think the glasses were clean enough, but I could be wrong

If you don't mind spiciness try the Port Dumpling in hot chilli sauce - its amazing, and affordable as well. The corn soup was average and the take-away does take some time.

Me and my partner only had a couple of pork dumplings and some sweet & sour pork but the food was amazing and very reasonably priced too!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
