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.
Tours around this historic parliament building are free and the guides interesting and informative. During parliamentary sessions, you can view, quietly, from the public gallery in both legislatures. This is a stunning building with a great history.
"Very interesting cultural museum over 5 floors plus basement."

Worth spending an hour in here. Start at the top floor as it showcases the Chinese people who came to Australia in the 1850s. Lots of interesting historical photos and memorabilia to view and read; interactive displays involving recorded interviews with famous and not so famous Chinese Australians.
"Food for the adventurous and the not so adventuros"
reviewed 3 days ago by We_Travellers4
Situated in the heart of the city and on the front door of the hotel we stayed at. Excellent variety of various Asian cuisines. When the kids were not feeling that adventurous there was even a cafe that did toasties. We visited the mall that had a lovely food court. Our table had a spread of food from a few...
Easy to walk past the entrance door and maybe reluctance when presented with a somewhat dark, small lobby, but push on! If you are fit enough then take the stairs to the sixth floor, else queue for what appears to be a tiny lift. The bar has a relaxed feel to it. People of all ages when we visited and...
After a long day we wandered across the CBD to find this place and it was so well worth it!
The place was rammed, so we headed into the (what turned out to be great) bar next door for a drink or two whilst we waited for a table.
$65 ($55 at lunch) for five sharing plates from the menu,...

Another of our friends recommendations that been a long top restaurant in the heart of the city.
The four of us went for an meal as an alternative when our original plans were derailed. We were able to get a 7pm slot even though Australian Open in town.
I went for the steak. We picked a couple of lovely wines...

"Very nice lunch"
reviewed 2 days ago by Andrew S
Great lunch. Were going to a matinee show at the Princess Theatre and the wife said she wanted to eat lunch somewhere in one to the laneways in Melbourne. Found this place and it was very good. Food was excellent and very tasty. Service was also excellent and staff were very helpful to my wife who is Coeliac. Would go...
My wife and I are always looking for the best Peking Duck we can find. We were told of this restaurant by our Air B n B hostesses. We ordered Peking Duck, Lamb egg roll and a beef noodle dish.
All three dishes were amazing, BUT, the Peking Duck was out of this world. It is impossible to describe this...
Great little hotel , in the heart of the theatre and Chinatown district.
Small , quirky with lovely surprises. Free continental breakfast, free mini bar (beer & wine) , free evening drinks from 6-7pm, free snacks in the room and sweet buffet as you enter the building
Room was a studio room at the front of the property- seperate living,...
Hotel room was clean and neat. The gym, pool and sauna are ideal for those travelling wanting to get some exercise done. Location was it is close to China Town and a number of cafes, which Melbourne is known for. The staff were very pleasant and overall was a positive experience.
Great location and secluded from hustle and bussell . Friendly staff. Able to check in early. Parking could be cheaper. Room was clean bed very comfortable. Could do with hand rail for step in shower in bath. Maybe allow later checkout if motel quiet and room not booked following night.
Good location, comfy bed, spacious apartment with everything you would need on holiday, just needs painting but would recommend this hotel to tourists and business people staff were pleasant and helpful.
The location of the City Limits hotel is fantastic, just outside Chinatown with any number of restaurants and cafes near by. In spite of that, there was no noise in the room from outside. The tram stops really close by, but everything within the CBD is walkable from here anyway. The staff is nice and friendly, the one thing that...
