Outstanding food. Outstanding service. Best Chinese restaurant in Melbourne CBD.
The staff were so friendly, the service was nice and quick as we were attending a show. The food was delicious!
Excellent service, good value for money and the food was delicious!
Had awesome food and service! Would definitely come back again!
The Tea House is one of my favourite restaurants. The food was excellent. It is not cheap, but not very expensive either. The stuffed Garfish was delicate and tasty. The fluffy lobster omelette delicate but flavoursome. Peking duck was both beautifully meaty, cooked to perfection with magnificently crisp skin. The crispy skin chicken was all beautiful plump and tender meat. There were many choices of wine by the glass. We were early as we had a five year old to get home but, even so, I was surprised that on a Friday night there were so few diners there. All those people who join the latest craze to queue in the street for Ramen or Singapore "street food" should try a real dining experience!
My husband and I have been eating here for many years. Yesterday we were a group of 8. We enjoyed the same excellent service, food and wine that we have received over the years when it has been just the two of us. There was another table of 10 in the restaurant at the same time, and a group of 6, plus many other smaller tables were occupied. None of this affected the gracious, efficient service we received. And the quiet, relaxed environment was the same as ever. Everyone at our table had a most enjoyable pre-Christmas lunch. We'll be back in 2020!!!
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.
Some may find the restaurant's practice of serving individual portions of shared dishes to each diner unusual, but I imagine that's how the Emperors were served in ancient China. Certainly having all of the lobster meat served without any shell, including the leg meat, made eating easy, although I suspect that the extra labour involved might have inflated the price somewhat and, of course, without any shell the dish looks small, but it was an excellent eating experience!
The food is always good, but the service is lacking. Greeted at the door by a seemingly annoyed female staff member. Seated and provided with tea. The gentleman who served me wasn't necessarily rude, he just wasn't anything. When asked for wine he practically raised his eyebrows like I asked for a unicorn. Food arrived with same level of disinterest and coldness. It's a shame because their food is great and the maitre'd has always been very polite (mostly to men). Paying the final bill was done at reception by same annoyed and disinterested female staff. Probably my last visit, and can't recommend anymore.
The food was delicious and the staff were attentive without being annoying. We went after reading a positive cantonese duck review, and the duck truly was magnificent but so were the dumplings, spring rolls, steamed rice roll, chicken ribs and the stuffed garfish. We will definitely be going back!
