About Mao Please

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!

I went primarily with a view to sampling the gluten-free dumplings. My son praised them highly, while I thought they were quite good. The pork stir-fry contained gluten, so I did not eat it; however, it was pronounced tasty by the three others with whom I dined. The gluten-containing dumplings were acknowledged to be acceptable but rated below what can be purchased elsewhere. There was nothing to complain about the simple, gluten-free plate of greens. The service was sufficiently friendly and efficient. The meal was inexpensive.

Good value restaurant. Ordered a banquet for a group. Much more attention could be paid to cleanliness of bathroom areas for guests. Vegetarian fried rice had some cubes of ham in it - had to request a replacement. Also, I would suggest inclusion of the pork buns or dumplings into the banquet menu. One thing I would recommend at this restaurant is their steamed pork buns.

Good service, well priced and excellent food. Would recommend the upstairs area as a venue for a party, function, etc. Will go back on a regular basis.
