Caught up with some old work colleagues, ideal place for small or large groups. BYO, so you can bring your best Pinot to go with the duck. Wine list a bit lacking considering the quality of the duck. Started with a variety of dumplings, then...More

We ordered the Peking duck and it was very good. The duck was carved at our table and there were just enough pancakes for the amount of duck (usually we run out of pancakes).

Good experience of traditional Chinese food - tasty and plentiful. Good food with fairly good and fast service. Friendly enough staff. Basic decor with comfortable seating on light and airy first floor, at top of many stairs!

Good honest Chinese food where the highlight of our banquet was the Peking Duck. Bookings are essential and need to be prompt as this place gets busy. BYO wine is also a positive.

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

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
