It's very authentic & cheap. Best kind of comfort food. Service was ok, just didn't think the glasses were clean enough, but I could be wrong

If you don't mind spiciness try the Port Dumpling in hot chilli sauce - its amazing, and affordable as well. The corn soup was average and the take-away does take some time.

Definitely worth a visit if you are seeking a quick and delicious lunch. Dumplings and spring rolls were very nice and take reign over the other menu items. Service is extremely fast, and food is priced relatively well too.

My wife wanted to try their dumplings and we were not disappointed. Found the food there to be delicious and very enjoyably. Best dumplings and spring rolls. You can watch them make the dumplings.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
