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!
Food was great, staff were very friendly and helpful, meals were reasonably priced but not as competitive compared to restaurants of similar cuisine and quality.
Overall, a good experience and would return.
Took my boyfriend there for the first time and we were in AWE. Everything on the menu was tasty, literally anything you got on the menu was delicious! Can’t go wrong! We will be back for sure
First visit, lived everything about it - taste, portion size, free-flow chillies, menu choices- overall highly recommend
Fantastic place. Only criticism is that in peak times you can be waiting for your order longer than most places and your food may come out speradically- this would be easily fixable with more staff for the dinner rush from 6 onward.
GREAT food though. And the staff they do have are lovely.
Fantastic service from friendly and obliging wait team.
The food was amazing and beautifully presented. Drinks menu was not too extensive but a really great variety no matter what your preference.
Found this gem exploring Prahran and South Yarra,
Loved the delicious dumplings( prawn combo and Long bao!!
Ordered Vegetables combo- very yummy- food temperature purrfect!!
Tried Lightly fried Barramundi with green dream sauce.... that was the only weak link as dream green sauce... for us it was way too much sauce... and too gooey!!
Great staff, very crowded - which is a good sign!!
Great place to eat, always consistently good food .
Expected a bit more from this. The tea was tasteless unfortunately and the dumplings weren’t very authentic
The food was exceptional - amazing flavours and we particularly enjoyed the calamari.
Great place for family birthday/graduation dinner. Shared plates worked really well; great vegetarian choices. Fortunately for us we were seated in a little nook down the back so noise level wasn't too bad. The food is really delicious and plentiful - we really enjoyed the Satay Peanut Chicken & Asian Herb Dumplings and Salt & Pepper Calamari Dusted In Garlic Salt, Served With Wonton Crisps.
Staff were lovely, food was outstanding and very affordable. Cocktails are yummy. Will definitely Be coming back again! 10/10
Freshness and quality are so important for me and my partner.
The food served was of great quality dumplings and seemed that their chef uses good and fresh ingredients which are different from other cheap dumpling places I have been to in the past.
Food was delicious, especially the cocktails! Definitely coming back.
Food was great, tea was delicious, however served in a bizarre way.
Great for a date night.
Always great food. Staff were a bit over run with the pre public holiday rush but attentive and communicative
Generally great, but drinks need to be delivered more quickly, we had to wait ages for every drink order
It was our first time and it was my daughters birthday and the staff sang happy birthday to her, made us feel very comfortable and helped us choose foods and happy to change things around for us, so would definitely be back and recommend them to my friends and family thankyou again for a lovely night x
Fantastic! Food was amazing, highly recommend. Service was great.
We had a small group for dinner on a Wednesday night. We didn’t really know what we wanted to order and the waitress suggested the banquet/feast menu. What a fabulous idea!! We got to taste a little bit of everything and after thinking we would need to order extra afterwards we didn’t need to as we were so full! We had a couple of fussy eaters who don’t like seafood and the staff were very accommodating to swap and change a couple of things to suit our group! We enjoyed it so much and had some adorable teapot cocktails! 👌🏽 Will definitely be back awesome atmosphere. No wonder it’s so busy all the time. Great value for money too ❤️❤️
Brilliant. We loved it. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves asian food
Food was delicious and fresh, there were plenty of options.
The meal was delicious. I'm a vegetarian and I was very happy with the options available, will definitely eat here again.
Outstanding! Such an amazing environment and felt incredibly looked after :)
Drinking the tea is like having an internal spa. The food is sublime but I'd love some more non-traditional, vego options (ginger, mushroom, water chestnut???) and less traditional yum cha fare. BTW, I am a meat eater and adore the duck and pork!
Food and team are always fantastic, great vibes thank you!
Love the friendly & engaging staff . Dumplings taste amazing, didn’t taste or feel any msg as many places make you thirsty after dumplings... we were very happy with our experience
Was just fantastic!
It was early restaurant not full. But the server gave us a table far away from the remaining guests. So then the server took an age to ask us if we would like drinks or even order food. When the food did arrive it was practically thrown down.
