Dear diners, please be aware that a minimum spend of $15 per person applies to online bookings.
Led by the same folks who brought you Prahran’s beloved Juicy Dumplings, this Little Bourke Street Chinese restaurant offers several styles of Chinese cooking including Hunan, Sichuan, and Cantonese, making it the perfect choice for adventurous foodies and lovers of Chinese cuisine. As for dumplings, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Mao Please, with highlights including xiaolongbao, sheng jian bao, as well as boiled, pan-fried and gluten-free varieties. In addition to the many meat-centred options, the restaurant also offers several vegetarian options including broccoli with garlic and Chinese vegetables with mushrooms. We think Mao would have been pretty impressed with this CBD Chinese restaurant – find out what the fuss is about by booking a table and trying it for yourself!
Food sounds delicious?

We went as a birthday party specifically for the gluten free dumplings, but were told that they were sold out. We should have left there and then, but decided to try the gluten free noodles which were tasteless. Other members of our party ordered special fried rice which never arrived and so left very unsatisfied.
Amazing food and staff but they need to change the music!
