This place has quite a lot of history, and i thought it would be a nice change from all the other places in China Down. However, after eating there, i find the place is outdated and overrated! Service is non existent. I don't think I...More

Took our family for a special night out. Was disapointed with the restaurant. Only half the luminated sign outside was going. Carpet inside was worn and torn. Live lobster tank was empty and dirty. Very little inside to excited about. We were on a $150...More

Mask of China won lots of awards in the 1990's and I was excited to go there. Sunday must be their off day because it was very quiet for lunch and not all items were available - even coffee. The scallops were supposedly a specialty...More

Have been eating here for more than 20 years, and it has never disappointed. Delicate flavours, fresh ingredients, great menu.

Delicious food at the Mask of China in Melbourne's Chinatown district, but perhaps because of the price, the restaurant lacked atmosphere. It's in the upper price category, we spent $151 including a bottle of wine, starters and mains. The food is delicious though, served in...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
