BBQ Pork Buns
sweet, marinated pork in fluffy white buns
Perfect. The food was stunning as usual, fresh and perfect. Service was really nice. Had a wonderful first lunch out in over 4 months! Thank you :)
Due to bookings only being 90 mins, food was rushed but quality great as always. Very slow to get a drink but obviously operating on skeleton staff. Understandable. Have been many times and still rate it as one of our favourites.
Great ambiance but spaced.
Service fairly impersonal though. Dishes just dropped on the table, no explanation
Awesome place. Great friendly service and delicious food
Food was fantastic and the staff very friendly. Coronavirus meant we had to leave after 1.5 hours but we still managed to enjoy 2 courses ordered at seperate times. If anything, a little pricey.
Absolutely loved our dinner! The plant based menu is divine - we've never had so much to choose from and were very impressed with everything that came our way. The Buddha Buns were a highlight! Service was also very friendly and helpful. It was our first time here, but we ended up getting takeaway a few nights later, and can't wait to come back. Thanks so much for a lovely birthday evening!
The food was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed everything. Venue was really nice.
Only issue we had was what we believed to be the floor manager seemed to be harassing the staff and upsetting them. It was a little uncomfortable to watch, I don’t know what the situation was.
Was still very good, will be back!
Only Yum Cha available, bit disappointing, cold because door was left open. Not as many alcoholic drinks available as usual. Carrot in San Choi bao was not cooked. Food was slow to come out. Had to ask for some dishes that were ordered at first to come out, think it was forgotten. Bit disappointed as this is one of my favourite restaurants I’ve been going to for a few years, in fact when they were at Chadstone.
I will go back though, maybe when this pandemic is over.
First time 3 of us caught up since COVID-19.
Made to feel very welcome. Social distance applied. Plenty of room for comfortable eating. Great to eat some good Asian food after month of home cooking.
I love eating at Oriental Tea House. Amazing delicious food and very well priced.
One of my favorite places to eat 👍🙂
Their dumplings are the best and you never feel sick or yucky after eating there. Their food quality is amazing
Great food and service. Food flavoursome and served very quickly. Will definitely be back.
Excellent food. Table service was ok
As I thought hey concentrated too much on Uber eats.
The food is always amazing. Service is always outstanding.
SERVICE was wonderful! Super warm, helpful and overall yummy unique food!
I just love the chapel street oriental tea house. I love the food and I really love the staff. And of course the tea!
Excellent as always, the best Yum Cha in Melbourne.
Great menu - something for everyone. Excellent service and friendly staff.
It was great to finally be able to visit our favourite restaurant.
OTH was the first restaurant we tried after lockdown and it was as good as ever! Worth the wait! A vegetarian paradise! Amazing flavours! Great service as usual! And all very reasonably priced! Can’t wait to return!!
Keep uber drivers outside.
Tasty food, will be back.
Always fabulous food... was hanging out all ISO ... didn’t disappoint... will be back soon.. thanks 😊
Friendly environment, good food, good service. will definitely return!
Always delicious food and great service love coming back here time and time again.
One of my favourite restaurants. The food is always amazing especially the dumplings.
The food and service here is exceptional. Price is also good. Parking is a bit of a pest but worth it. I can highly recommend the prawn and ginger dumplings. They’re delicious.
Great food. Good service. We went for the banquet tasting menu which meant we got to try a lot of different dishes. Nice selection of teas to try as well. Restaurant had a good atmosphere.
I have been here many times. Food is a bit pricey but is amazing, so worth it. Can get really busy and noisy, but you can't really help that on Chapel street. First time I booked online- very easy to do. Look forward to the next visit!
Love the food here, always a pleasure coming. It’s easy, tasty and good value for money. Highly recommend 🙌🏻
Absolutely amazing food and such a cool vibe! The Valentine’s Day special they had set up was so amazing and we were able to try a range of dumplings and a lovely main meal! Such a fun question game to play as well
Amazing dinner, will be going back again and again
Took our 1 year old here and it was great. Little one loved the food and we were able to sit down and have a nice bottle of wine. Food was good and service was great and fast.
Food great just make sure you get your dumpling hot, otherwise they are just not up to scratch. Service is amazing! Noise levels are out of control. Too many venues are not thinking about the customer experience and making a venue look good but have no noise absorbing features.
We had a family siblings reunion dinner for 5 noisy girls, and we had a great evening. We chose the Feasting menu at $45.00 pp and it was really worth while and the food was delicious as good value for money. Adam looked after us and he was attentive and great. I chose the venue as we had our staff Xmas function there in December 2019.
We had a great dinner at the Oriental Tea House. The service was quick, the wait staff very helpful and the food was very very tasty!
Was very noisy. Food was tasty but not a huge range of gluten free (no mains). Enjoyed gf dumplings.
Good service, nice tea, nice atmosphere inside and outside. The small dishes were delicious - the main dishes were a little too gloopy and sweet (crispy fish in chilli sauce, aubergine and tofu) but still tasty.
Birthday dinner. Easy to book via open table. Table was ready upon arrival. Food full of flavour and presented aesthetically. Good value for money. Unfortunate about the public holiday surcharge. Restaurant kept cool and staff insightful and courteous. Recommend buying a few dishes and sharing them around to get the most experience of all the appealing food on offer.
Excellent service and atmosphere, however very disappointing vegetarian and vegan options. Especially since the reason I went was because I received an email specifically about the vegan yumcha. Very bland and repetitive dishes on offer which is such a shame as I loved oriental tea house before I went vego! Will try again in the future so hopefully there will be better variety and flavour on offer ✨
The food was superb! We will definitely come back for another round.
