A varied menu and reasonably priced- we didn't have a reservation but were able to get a table for 2 fairly quickly. The service is quick and the food quality is good. We had the Seafood garlic hot pot and the Sezchuan chilli pork belly both very good dishes and with a small bowl of rice it was more than... More

After wandering the streets of Chinatown looking for something for dinner we came upon this restaurant. Being fans of Peking duck we obviously wanted to try it. After entering we were asked if we could dine within the hour. We knew we could and were shown to a table, although it wasn't the warmest greeting ever. The tables were seated... More

I'm not sure I'd rush back to this restaurant. The food was "ok:. Nothing to rave about and i think expensive for what we got.

We ordered a banquet which was great in quantity. Most of it was lovely, however this time nothing really stood out. Service was lovely, however we felt a bit rushed.

Just wanted the duck and pancakes as advertised in the street and wasn't disappointed. Plenty for 2 and good value. The other food on the other tables looked good as well. The service was OK - they got our order wrong and over poured the beer in the glass but nothing that would stop me going back.

Dahu offers much more than Peking Duck, so the name may be slightly mis-leading. Actually duck is one of the dishes, the menu is rich and offers a few samples from many types of Chinese food, plus some local flavors (like kangaroo dishes). The location in the heart of China town is reasonably decorated. Service was fast and efficient. All... More

We had a 4 person banquet for $50.00 each, and I have never had so much food. It was divine! I would come back every trip to Melbourne!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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 up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
