Introducing Ricky & Pinky, the Chinese restaurant within a landmark Fitzroy pub, run by Australian hospitality veterans. A rollickingly lively and fun place to gather with friends and family for delicious Chinese food, plentiful banquet menus, drinks & bar snacks and everything in between. Favourite aspects of Chinese dining experiences are seen in round tables, fish tanks, and of course the ubiquitous lazy Susan to make meal sharing practical and fun.

For dim sum die hards, experience the lunch time Yum Cha on offer every Friday Saturday & Sunday from midday until 4pm. The ultimate way to polish off the working week with colleagues, feast with family and friends or kick back into gear after a big night. No set menus, just a choose-your-own-adventure style experience with a menu of yum cha staples that sit alongside a rotating selection of more adventurous dishes.

The food was excellent as was the service but the restaurant was far too noisy to have a good conversation - wouldn’t recommend for a romantic couples night out

We went out for a chinese new year lunch as a family. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy the meal. Any celebratory or festive atmosphere was missing from the restaurant. The dish we enjoyed most was the fried rice and the complimentary pickles. We did not enjoy most of the dim sum. The siew mai we found to be dry and did not appear appetising, the yellow skin to be dark and mottled. The rice noodle/cheung fun was too firm without the melt in your mouth feel I would have expected at this proposed level of dining. The egg tart was not enjoyable. The filling was sunken and was grey in colour, not the expected bright vibrant yellow. It was also served cold evidently not fresh out of the oven. Particularly at these price points, 5 dollars for a slightly smaller than average tart, one would not unreasonably expect fresher warmer tarts. Perhaps I should have raised this issue directly with the staff when we were there but we didn't find the opportunity too nor did the staff ask us how our meal was going. To improve I would recommend more quality control on the food coming out of the kitchen.

My only criticism of the restaurant was the noise. We were at a round table but it was still quite difficult to hear conversation. The staff were excellent however it was difficult to hear their menu and wine suggestions.

We come here for everyday dining as well as special occasions. The food is authentic and delicious with a modern twist. Servings are not large but are adequate all the same.

- All dishes were delicious, though slightly small servings.
- Beautiful setting / gorgeous furniture.
- Staff were efficient.
- Would dine here again but possibly save for a special occasion due to VFM.

Surprisingly quiet for Sunday lunch but good ambiance, friendly staff and delicious food. Yum cha but not as we know it. Favourite dish was the duck with pancakes but we enjoyed everything .
