A very expensive Chinese restaurant. Used to be great they made real Chinese dishes. Now they serve western Chinese adapted. I love the real thing

Heard great things about Man Bo so decided to give it a try. It was a special occasion for my husband and I so did not mind paying the prices if the food was as good as I had heard. We ordered the $60 banquet. Long wait for the first couple of courses to arrive, then the next 4 came... More

Been here many times before. Decided to do a thank you dinner for 2 other couples. Chose Man Bo for ambience, class and the 'better' chinese experience. Firstly, the booking was 'lost' , but they seated the first 4 of us anyway. When the final couple turned up, they were actually seated at the table we were to have, so... More

We had a family celebration here with 5 of us. We chose the Tasting Menu B at $68 a person with 9 courses. Very prices and probably too many courses to enjoy as we were very full by the end and just wanted to get it over with. 7 courses would have been enough at a lower price per person... More

I really need to respond to this review Diane. Management care very much about the service here at Man Bo. I really wish to put some context around your complaint of the service on the night of 29 July. As you are well aware, we were extremely busy on that night, with the AFL football game starting at 7:50pm. I... More
