Oriental Tea House - Little Collins
We ordered the dumplings and were delighted. Lots of different flavours and textures, not just your standard dumplings. Everyone was divine. One of the best dumpling feasts that I have ever eaten. The only downside was the staff were a bit unattentive and it took ages to catch the eye of our server or indeed any other to order drinks and food. Once that was accomplished, all went well.
Beautiful, high quality food. Excellent vegetarian options too!
Large group of 10 with constant flow of food and drinks. An enjoyable evening before heading out for a show.
best chinese food i’ve ever had. great service, fast & friendly. really different cocktails to try & very nice! would 100% recommend
Great new world lunchtime Yum Cha restaurant. No chaos, No excessive noise, No trollies pushing their way through, just friendly waiters with trays of fresh dumplings. Good for a relaxed business lunch.
Food was great but the service was terrible.
Slow drinks, forced out of the restaurant because they wanted to close early, waiter spilt half a bottle of water on us but still charged us for the water.
Literally the best dumplings we have ever had! More expensive than your usual run of the mill dumplings, but you get what you pay for! Also great vegan options! Highly recommend the bbq ‘pork’buns.
Great trendy place with nice food and good service. Definitely recommend going there.
great way to spend chinese new year will go back again
Another fantastic evening at Oriental Teahouse for CNY. The food for the evening was a lovely yum cha style menu and to top it all off, we experienced a traditional lion dance performed right inside of the venue. Oriental Teahouse failed to disappoint and I will most definitely be returning again in future.
Yum cha service was awesome! Lots of vegan/veg options. The deserts were delicious too.
Food was first class, was a little noisy due to a group upstairs but it was still a very enjoyable evening
Excellent food and service have already booked for another visit
Great place, good food, good service, good price. Very pleased
Pleasant surprise, classic flavours done in an inventive way.
reheated food - not fresh
very expensive peking duck and super tiny pieces
if you like chinese don’t go here
Great venue for going out with friends for yum cha! Awesome food!
Always delicious food and thoroughly enjoyable atmosphere.
Had to ask twice and wait before we could order drinks though.
We enjoyed our first yum cha experience at Oriental Tea house. Great dim sum and helpful service. They have a very good wine list, surprisingly.
The staff are welcoming, attentive but not in your face! Good with recommendations regarding vegetarian options. Food was tasty & quick to arrive. We always leave with happy bellies, content & it's great value for money...
Service ,food and staff were fantastic,like always
Yummy food..very good service, variety in the menu
Fantastic friendly service. Exciting dishes. Sensational flavours. If you're looking for a great night out then look no further. The Oriental Tea House is an exciting dining experience featuring traditional Asian flavours with a modern contemporary twist. Thanks for a great dining experience.
The food was magnificent. Their dim sum menu is sublime and the barramundi in chilli and ginger a sensation! Fantastic service and great decor to match.
We had Saturday brunch for my sons birthday, the food was amazing and the service great, hope to return when in Melbourne again.
While visiting Melbourne I wanted to take my parents somewhere a bit different for dinner. The menu looked amazing so we tried it. And we weren’t disappointed.
disappointed with the lack of communication between staff members when I booked for my function well in advance and confirmed menu and dietary requirements. It was a shame to arrive and have to repeat the information multiple times furthermore telling me one of the requests could not be facilitated despite emails to prove otherwise (was asked to have my phone given so waiter could go to the back and show the email). Also did not appreciate the seating when we could have been placed in the far corner or upstairs (group of 9 people). Disappointed that dietary requirements were not catered for, instead a bowl of mixed Asian vegetables was provided to guest and attempted to charge us for the dish despite the fact it was included in our feasting menu. No communication between waiters on the night. Comments made about how much we ate or didn’t eat. Dirty dishes were not removed from table unless asked multiple times. Unfortunate experience, won’t be attending again.
Good tea and food if you're into Western-Asian Fusion. Some nice twists on traditional dishes such as the peking duck dumplings and the Happy Tea which is a herbal Dang Shen tea. If you have Western friends who would like an easy introduction to Asian tea and food, this is a good place.
I loved the idea of the vegan night - so may vegans really miss being able to enjoy foods like yum cha, so it was a great idea. All the food we ate was absolutely amazing.
My only disappointment was that they never brought around the 3 main vegan dishes which were advertised - they filled us up on the other standard dishes, we were waiting for the beyond beef, the 'chicken' and the 'pork' which never came, they then offered the bill for us to leave. I was only told at that point we had to order that separately. We were a little annoyed as those dishes were the main draw card to the night, we ordered one of them at had to eat it quickly to leave.
The vegan night was so amazing! I would love if you did this every month so that I could bring friends and show them the plant based way can be so delicious
If ANY of those vegan dishes were on the menu full time, I'd live at Oriental Tea House!! Great food, great service and such an affordable price!
My husband and I came to Oriental teahouse for their special vegan night. My husband isn't vegan and we both thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service was quick and super friendly, and we both hope that Oriental teahouse will hole more vegan nights and consider expanding their vegan menu.
10/10, would recommend.
The service we received was absolutely incredible, it was noisy though because it was a big event - the staff went out of their way to recommend meals, repeat themselves so we could understand and make the experience one of the best dining experiences I've had. This was the first time in 6 years I was able to attend a yum cha service and I adored the opportunity. Please do more of the vegan nights!
The food was amazing, I enjoyed every dish I tried. The staff were lovely and the service was great.
The Oriental Tea House has the best dumplings in the world. Period. I wish to go back there weekly.
We love Oriental tea house. The food is always fresh and the service great. They also cater for so many individual dietary requirements. Prices are really fair for the quality and service but in the upper range for Yum Cha. Love it 👍🏼
Food was yum, loved everything! It was economical and the location was easy to find. The food served was hot, fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back ☺️
Oriental Teahouse had some of the best dumplings and buns we’ve ever had! Their teas and Cocktail/teas (Cockteas) were amazing also!
Great food and a lovely quiet venue good selection of dishes that was well explained
Great food. Had the feasting menu and enjoyed everything
