We found the staff accomodating & willing to alter menu to suit my vegetarian preferences. The veg pan-fried dumplings were delish. All the other things we ordered were yummy too. Plenty of Chinese cuisine options. Price was reasonable, especially considering its Fed-Square location. It was...More

Had a lovely family dinner (2 children 12 yrs old ) before going to a show. Lots of steamed dumplings and tasty little bits followed by fried rice and a yummy chicken dish. Kids loved it. Food & service both great.

I went here for a work lunch in December and I won't be rushing back. The previous time was excellent but that was a while back. Pick up your standards guys, we need a good consistent Chinese restaurant around the Federation Square area.

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

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
