Amazing ambience with an old world book store feel. Corpse Revival Cocktail was delicious though the Duck and fresh coconut salad was outstanding. Look forward to coming back.

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
