Within easy walking distance from our hotel. Lovely restaurant, beautifully decorated, great ambience, perfect for couple, business or large dining party. It was busy but not noisy so perfect, relaxing way to eat out dinner. We ordered the mushrooms with crab and steak & vegetables...More

The selection and blend of flavours is exceptional. The banquet dishes are in themselves simple but the coming together of complimentary flavours makes them delicious. Peking Duck, Scallops and King prawns the standouts. Might want to order vegetables as they aren't a big feature otherwise....More

Staff were incredibly accommodating with our limited timeframe. The dumplings were fantastic. We will definitely return to try more of the menu. Pricey but worth it.

I love this restaurant and have visited many times over the past year or so. It is a place where you can sit and relax and enjoy great service and food. The Peking duck pancakes are very tasty and I order these on each visit....More

I enjoyed the San Choi Bow for entree and the Peking duck pancakes for main. Both were to die for. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere was cosy and not loud so we were able to have a conversation. Can't wait to visit again.

Cosy Chinese restaurant for mid-winter dinner. Very attentive service and terrific food - Peking duck a speciality.

The best dumplings and the fluffy omelette is to die for. Great family friendly warm atmosphere. Ann and jimmy and the rest of the staff always look after us so well. Would go every week if I could.

We were a family party of 12 on a Saturday night. Chose to order off the menu rather than a banquet. Food was scrumptious especially the prawn stuffed zucchini flowers. Whole dining experience was great.

After the theatre on Friday night we wandered in just before 11pm, had a delicious late night dinner, just 2 of us. A couple of dishes and rice, simple, but it was really good, not cheap, but well worth it ! We'll go back !

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
