We have eaten here many times, Unfortunately this time, we were seated upstairs with a very noisy crowd and just wanted to leave. It was unbearable. Noise does not normally faze us, but this was insane. The food was tasty and we love the theatre...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
