David's Restaurant, in Prahran, crafts delectable contemporary Shanghai-style Chinese cuisine with knowhow and passion in its friendly and charming eatery. The Shanghai pan-fried spring onion pancakes and the tender prawn and chopped chive dumplings make for superb starters. Some of David's Restaurant's specialty larger dishes include the spicy white cut chicken with peanuts and sesame in a chili sauce, the chunky barramundi fillets in spicy black bean paste with fried potatoes and the crispy fried iron Buddha beef served atop fragrant tea leaves, all of which are delicately seasoned. Noodle and rice dishes, such as the fat Shanghai noodles with pork and vinegar and Auntie's fried rice with sausage and egg, are other diner favorites. The white chocolate dumplings with praline is a perfect dessert.
David's Restaurant also has a full gluten-free menu, as well as being one of the best Yum Cha destinations in Melbourne.
