This is one of Chinatown’s best kept secrets, hidden just off Little Bourke on Cohen Place. In a district so loaded with dumplings it takes a lot to stand out, but Tea House at China Town really do manage it with lavish servings of authentic Cantonese and broader Chinese meals, cooked to traditional recipes using super-fresh ingredients. Popular with Melbourne CBD folk for a satisfying business lunch, Tea House at China Town is invisible among the throng of more ostentatious Chinese restaurants around, but it’s irresistible once you do find it. They do a superb range of banquets (lunch or dinner) to give you a taste of everything, or simply pick your way through the enticing menu, from drunken pigeon to classic Peking duck and of course mountains of steamy dumplings, sweet desserts and plentiful seafood and vegetarian options. Don’t tell too many people, but Tea House at China Town is well worth a visit.
This restaurant is always reliable. The Cantonese cuisine is excellent and the service is impeccable. The tables are not too close to each other. Some of the dishes on offer are particularly special such as the fluffy lobster omelet, quail san choi bow and the stuffed garfish. The Peking duck is delicious and meaty, not greasy like some other places. Prices are reasonable. Amongst our group of five we had a celiac person and there was no difficulty in catering for her.
It was the first time we had eaten here and I must say the food is amazing We will definitely be back the food is very fresh and the staff and very friendly and helpful
This is our favourite restaurant in Melbourne. Not overpriced. Excellent service. Meals are delivered super quick even when it's busy and the food is absolutely DELICIOUS. Looking forward to our next visit.
