Mietta's ReviewA hidden treasure. Just to enter is to be calmed and soothed by the Ying and Yang design and decor. It's big (seats 200) but has an intimate feel. Great staff and service and, it claims, Melbourne's first open Chinese kitchen. The menu offers Chinese food with a difference, a superb melange of flavours at reasonable prices, with a sneaky view down into Federation Square. There is also an outside terrace that should prove popular on warmer days.

Herald Sun, weekend, eat, Bob Hart, 5/7/03. One of the only ground-breaking Chinese restaurants to open in Melbourne for some time. The cuisine of Shandong province is vastly different to most Chinese food that is on offer in Melbourne.

SMH, Good Living, 25/3/03, Matthew Evans. One of the best picks of Melbourne's new eating opportunities. Home-style northern Chinese cuisine with an open kitchen and modern good looks.
Herald Sun, food & drink, dining out, 28/1/03, Stephen Downes, Score 12/20. Intriguing but routine northern Chinese food.
