Oriental Tea House - South Yarra - Melbourne


I had been to The Oriental Tea House before in the city and wasnt that impressed with it. I recently had a day wandering around south side (as its extremely rare I cross the river) and decided to drop in for lunch. The location is much nicer than their city store and I sat in a light filled window people watching and reading my book. It was really lovely. I had the vegetarian san choy bao (amazing) and the specialty dish of the spicy eggplant. The eggplant was ok, but I think after the amazingness that is the sczechuan eggplant at Idea Food and Wine, nothing else compares. I had a mug of the 'relaxing' tea, which they refill with hot water free of charge. Their tea selection is impressive and the service was good once I finally flagged someone down to take my order (I had waited 15 minutes).

Space: a light and airy 8/10
Service: 8/10
Food: 8/10

Overall: 16/20

deets: 455 Chapel Street, South Yarra Vic 3141, Tel: 9826 0168 (restaurant)
$$: San Choy Bao $6.90 spicy eggplant $6.90 rice?? I think the tea was $2.90
