Oriental Tea House - Chapel St
Everything great - except some of the dishes weren’t quite as hot as they should have been- temperature hot not chilli hot!
The food was amazing and very tasty. Value for money was excellent. Overall atmosphere was great too.
Always enjoy coming here. Had the feast for two people which provided great value. There were no problems to swap out certain some dishes.
And the white chocolate dumplings are to die for!
Once again the team at Oriental Tea House didn't disappoint, always amazing. Our favourite place to visit every time we are in Melbourne.
Thank you so much for making my birthday easy and relaxing. All of the food was amazing, couldn't fault it and the service considering how busy it was seemed like nothing was to hard and always with a smile.
Easily the best Chinese food I’ve had in a very long time. Extensive menu, excellent wine list and great service. Very generous portions of all meals and surprisingly well-priced. The only downside is the noise (concrete floors and walls don’t lend themselves to quiet) which made it very hard to hear my companions and to hold a conversation.
Was very busy for a sunday night at 6:30. We were seated upstairs. Usually the food arrives in a steady procession but this time it stopped for 1/2 an hour with three dishes to go. Food was awesome as usual.
Great evening, staff were very attentive however not over the top and very helpful! Would absolutely go back and recommend.
Gorgeous food. One of my fave restaurants in Melbourne
Really impressed with the excellent balance of items in the set banquet menus.
And the tofu is sooooo goooood.
Always Busy,always great food & service. Its my go to for Yum Cha!
Great food! Reasonably priced. Waiters sang happy birthday enthusiastically! All food came out at different times though.
Food is always amazing. Service was great considering how busy it was.
Always the most friendliest staff on, and the most amazing and tasty flavors! We keep coming back!! Love it!! Thank you so much!
Food was delicious and service was great - would definitely go back
Have wanted to try the Oriental Tea House for a while and was not disappointed. Excellent food, with loads of variety, at very reasonable pricing. All staff were excellent. Will definitely be going again!
Wonderful yum cha selection and efficient staff... a bit noisy with the concrete walls and floor.
Very Attentive staff without being pushy. The food was great and we will soon be back soon
I was surprised and disappointed that we were told the bar was closed at 9:30pm!! We tried to order drinks after our last course was served. Given we had a 7:45pm booking, I think this was unacceptable.
Also as a table of 8 we were not given menus, instead expected to order KINO style with a pencil " to help the kitchen"!
Excuse if I'm wrong, I thought we were the customers and the kitchen was there to provide food service for our convenience not theirs!!
Delicious food, good customer service, have been before and will go back!
As usual, we enjoyed lunch at Oriental Teahouse where the food is consistently fresh and tasty and the service is friendly and attentive. We especially loved the new dedicated and updated plant-based menu. Thank-you.
I’d go back again and again for the xiao long bao!!
Every dish was delicious and the service was outstanding!
Drinks arrived about about 15 seconds after finishing our food and drink order.
The place was pumping by 6:45 and has an awesome Friday night feel to it.
OVERALL GREAT FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE! MY FRIENDS AND I ALL ENJOYED OUR MEALS AND DRINKS. WE HAD A GREAT TIME, I WILL BE BACK FOR SURE! THANKS!
Beautiful food. Portions could have been slightly more generous for the cost but not an overly expensive place. Worth is for the taste. Service is excellent, if a little overbearing at times. But the venue was stunning, everything was prompt and well timed. They had no issue with us adding on to the order throughout the stages, and accommodated our dietary requirements very well, assuring that they had double checked with chefs themselves. Overall a wonderful night out.
What an experience! My partner and I decided to do the dating for dumplings and we would definitely recommend it to all couples regardless how long you have been dating for. The service was fast and the food was to die for! we will be definitely returning again and will be telling our friends!!
Food is delicious and price is excellent value. The feasting menu for 4 people is a great experience and I would thoroughly recommend, you won't go home hungry. Delivery drivers coming in the side door slightly annoying (leaving the door open when it's cold). Love this place though
It was amazing! Food is always amazing.
Best special fried rice I have ever tried, and those authentic dumplings are to die for 10/10
Not your standard greasy yum cha which can leave you feeling ill. High quality ingredients and really great service.
Amazing food, amazing staff always so friendly. 15% surcharge for a public holiday is a down fall but I guess it’s like that everywhere these days.
I keep coming back I love everything about oriental
Excellent setting, food was outstanding, will be back again
Beautiful food, great service and atmosphere. We will be back!
A great dining experience: some dishes are just to die for, including all dumplings. Service is very courteous and attentive. It is a noisy place, but that night was OK (Monday). Highly recommended.
Great food and vibe. Love this venue.
Atmosphere is great until the constant flow of deliveroo drivers passing while you eat gets a little too much.
As a visitor interstate will recommend but you need to fix the take out delivery situation other wise you just feel like a Thai takeaway joint.
We love this place - and for some reason, the Chapel Street restaurant is better than the Oriental Tea House in the city. Good service, usually pretty quick (they were extra busy when we went), but the food is always faultless. Branched out and tried few new dishes we hadn't had before, and weren't disappointed.
Great food, atmosphere picked up a bit later into our sitting, staff were getting ready for a busy Valentine's evening so understandable. Great friendly fast service
Dinner was fairly quick and came out in a great order, ambiance was good, tea was delicious!! would recommend
Had a fantastic night at Oriental Teahouse! Food was fantastic and service was also great. Although we would have liked to have stayed longer but were rushed out due needing the table. Had we had longer would of probably ordered dessert.
From the moment we stepped in we were greeted and taken to our table. Service and food was quick and food was delicious. Great ambience very relaxing. Our waitress was brilliant. Thank you Oriental Tea house we were super impressed and are already recommending others to experience your lovely restaurant.
Googled ‘the best dumplings in melbourne’ and this was the place that came up! I totally agree! A huge menu with thoughtful, inspired flavours, refined and beautifully presented. Quick service and amazing value. So much more to try! I’ll definately be back. The wagyu need and chilli, duck and soup filled dumplings were all winners. And happy to make 4 pieces to share evenly!
