A trip to Melbourne isn't complete without Hu Tong - the chilli wonton, pan fried dumplings and others are the best I've found anywhere.

Obviously many of previous reviewers have not had the advantage and pleasure of eating in China especially in the hutongs. The dumplings we were served were dry and the outer skins felt like they had been laying around for a while before served. This was...More

We went for a goodbye party to see one of our friends off back home, we were seated upstairs far away from the rest of the patrons. Authentic food, good service, great portions, most importantly, good vegan, vegetarian and traditional Chinese food.

Caught up with friends for dinner. Dumplings were great, crispy chicken was a bit dry and ordinary. Biggest supprise for a restraunt with this reputation was the staff were very rude and even told us we had to hurry it up and leave as we...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

money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
