I love the diversity in the city. We have been craving Chinese food and we have found this great place. We ordered several dishes to share and also some fresh fruit juices. Everything was amazing. Customer service not so much but food was amazing.

I come here at least once a fortnight to grab dinner as I work down the road. Plenty of Asian places right along this strip of Swanston that are always packed but I always come back here. I’ve had dumplings, noodles and fried rice, all...More

Was surprised how amazing the quality of food and service at this place. It's near chinatown but the food looked safe and didn't have so many items on the menu, just what they knew they could do well. Worth every dollar and worth a visit...More

We came here for lunch. The menu looked great, service was great but food was ok. I was a little disappointed in the food as I felt it lacked flavour. But that might just be as I didn’t get a chilli dish?

So glad we could find vegetarian dim sum at this restaurant as it can be hard to locate in Melbourne. Fast service and delicious food. We also enjoyed the spicy tofu dish. Will definitely return!

Visiting Melbourne again, we had to pop into Dumplings Plus, a short walk from Flinders Street Station. The food is always great and very reasonably priced. Lots of choice on the lunch time menu, something for everyone. The place is always packed, a good sign...More

Wasn't too bad, a little bit oily and there was a slightly overpowering taste in the vegetable dumplings. But its made fresh to order and you can see them do it. Reasonable if you are a fan of dumplings

This central Chinese restaurant is a must. Super friendly and welcoming staff. Lots of tables on 2 floors so even though it’s busy getting a table wasn’t an issue. We opted for a dumpling sharing platter. A bit too large for lunch but all tasted...More

The food here feels like a really bad fast food version of high end dumpling and noodles. The food was not impressive and nether was the speed of service or unprofessional staff.

One of the few place open after 10pm in the neighbourhood if you don't want McDonald's. I ordered the spring onion omelette and the orawn/chicken dumplings. Omelette was fine, very much like a. Indian paratha filling. The dumplings were a disappointment. Looked good enough, but...More

Central Business District
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

I was only a tourist in Melbourne when I reviewed this restaurant and have no idea whether it will be open on Anzac Day. If you wish to go to the Swanston Street premises which I reviewed you can contact them on 03 9663 8181... More
