We like, whenever possible on our overseas trips to cities with a Chinatown, to find a Peking duck restaurant. Dahu is a very good one. Jucy duck and crisp skin. We liked it.

Go here all the time for peking duck and it never disappoints. While the other dishes can be hit and miss sometimes. Go for the duck then go somewhere else for another course.

On the outside it doesn’t look like much but it’s all about the food. The staff are incredibly helpful and the Shanghai style Pork Belly is to die for. Seafood dishes were perfectly cocked and full of flavor. Well worth the visit.

Visited today as we stopped off our bus tour in China Town and thought it looked nice, had duck pancakes for starter which to be fair were okay, then ordered chicken curry for main.. TERRIBLE! Under no circumstances was it chicken, it was more like...More

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
