Wow. Be aware. Taste explosion area. Possibly the best Asian food I have had. Fresh, strong and aromatic. The crispy whole fish with chili, tamarind and lime was a stand out. Yellow curry and pork ribs weren’t far behind. Not cheap but outstanding.

The food is brilliant. The cocktails are delicious. The service is great. But take friends to share the meals with - the more people, the greater the variety. You would never regret a mass meal here.

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
