Pricey for dumplings but they are good. Service is fast but they don't seem smile much.

The staff were attentive, efficient and professional while still being friendly. My friend and I had the Shao-long bao, wantons with hot chilli sauce and duck meat dumplings - delicious. I especially recommend the wantons with hot chilli sauce - I who have Lemon & Herb chicken at Nandos. It was one of the best wantons I've ever had.

At a glance: peking duck·stir fried·dumplings·prawns·waiters "Best modern Chinese I have tasted, ready to go there any day of the week! David has really created something special and with staff like Justin who could almost have a fan club of his own it is excellent.

The food was delicious and the service was fast and efficient. Our table was a bit cramped as a group of 6 people trying to fit into a booth though. Really fun spot to share some food with mates and at a really good price.

Went there with a Chinese speaker and we enjoyed every moment but as soon as i went back with only English speaking friend it was like a different place

food was great - no wonder it has been rated as one of the best dumpling restaurants in melbourne. however, snobby staff served to tarnish the overall experience as they were very limited in their english, and seemed to display an air of pompousness which doesn't seem to match the friendly nature of the general chinese people.

I had made a booking for 5 for my daughters birthday. When we arrived on time, we first were told rudely there was no booking then accused me of booking for 12 then found the booking and said it was for four and there was not enough room for five. Two of the group were children. It was for my daughters fifteenth birthday, not little kids. I explained it was a birthday, I pleaded, I reasoned, I insisted on looking at the table, and was taken upstairs and shown a room full of people, there was no table ready and she continued to rudely and aggressively tell me that she could not put 5 of us at a table. There were booths with extra chairs and she agreed they could sit 5 but would not swap a booking from a booth to a table when the booth bookings were for 4. COMPLETELY UNREASONABLE, RUDE, to myself and my daughter who was in tears by this stage. I have NEVER experienced such absolute disregard for customers, for basic politeness. They need to be boycotted, not okay at all.

Xiao long boas were good but the pan fried dumplings had a little too much dough for my liking

Have always had a good experience at Hu Tong. While some have said it's difficult to get a booking, I've usually had good luck getting a table downstairs for 2 or 3 people, without feeling as rushed as you might at some of the cheaper dumpling restaurants. The menu is quite extensive, but I've always tended to stay with a mix of the dumplings and small dishes. Of course, the Xiao Long Bao is exceptional --- I've had these at several places, including in Hong Kong, and Hu Tong compares pretty well. As always, part of the fun is being able to see in to the kitchen and watch the dumplings being prepared.

Great dumplings. Staff not overly friendly. Hard to get into and possibly a little over priced but otherwise ok

Over-rated by the media. The xia-long-bao is good but everything else that I ate is average. Some dishes arrived lukewarm and the service is inconsistent.

Now firmly on my top 10 experiences of unforgettable simplicity in excellence. I had no expectations of the food other than it was dumplings and it was excellent - the service was abrupt, simplistic and brisk (what else do you get as a gwailo in an authentic chinatown space) and the food was suburb. Venue Superb. Memory on tongue - superb. If you want to find excellence, you need a foodicionado of Melbourne - and then you just have experience after experience exploring food and Melbourne. Warmly recommended to bring a friend along to and to surprise them.

Great food (especially the shanghai dumplings!) and service was fine. Took a little while to get the bill but they were pretty busy. I am not sure if all the 1 star ratings are from other dumpling houses - Call me racist but the terrible grammar and spelling of the bad ratings makes me a bit suspicious.
