Toorak Road is one of the main dining drags in Melbourne – befitting one of the most affluent and desirable areas of the city – and those choosing the spend their time and dollars on the many restaurants of South Yarra could do a lot worse than heading over to Tao Dumplings. They’re located right on the main strip, along from South Yarra train station, and they’re proud to offer some of the best Chinese in Melbourne, with a menu that boasts steamed dumplings, prawn shu mai, pork buns and shredded beef. The menu is simple, but what they do, they do well, and great Chinese cooking doesn’t require over-complication: hearty, traditional-style dumplings, steamed to perfection and served at the right price. Pay them a visit along Toorak Road and you’ll be bowled over immediately: just don’t expect to be the only people there. They get busy on occasion, so ensure that you get your table by booking online before you make the trip to South Yarra.
Exceptional service and the staff were very friendly. We were running late for our booking, but they were very accomodating. Every dish we ordered was fabulous and very reasonably priced. (We ordered 11 dishes) would highly recommend Tao Dumplings in Sth Yarra and will definitely be a repeat customer.
Always a great experience. Good food, good value and good service. It has become our local. Added bonus, the acoustics are good and you can have a conversation!
Delicious food, fast service and attentive staff. I will definitely be going back for more. We enjoyed some pork and chicken/prawn dumplings and fried rice.
The food was great. The service was excellent. Good quality food with what you pay for. The pork ribs were great. Definitely going back again.
Food excellent, service friendly. This is a fairly new South Yarra gem, being a party of we tried a good selection of the menu and really couldn't fault any of the dishes.
