We rented an apartment just around the corner from Chine on Paramount. Given the fact that this is the heart of Chinatown, I can’t believe we got it so wrong with all the good restaurants in the area. It was tipping down with rain, we...More

I should have known when there were no asian people dining there. Prices are not low. Service was good but meals average. Disappointed with the shark fin soup and the short soup. Main meal was quite nice but overpriced.

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
