    Good good but nothing spectacular as per standards expected being located at a premium location like Crown. Customer service is lacking and staff are not friendly and just working and serving without a smile like in any other busy take away Asian restaurant. Staff are pushy just after serving main course on the table to push customers out of the restaurant as soon as possible. In a restaurant located in a premium location our glasses were never refilled with water, we were never asked for another round of drinks, and we always had to look for staff to order something.

    It used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Melbourne. They may change a chief, the food I had is really disappointed. Especially the chill chicken, the chicken taste so weird with huge sizes.

    I have had several meals at Man Tong. This was the first time I was disappointed. Terrible service, from one waiter and one was very good. The Prawn dish was not the standard of the other food.

    Beautiful choice of food. Welcome person was rude and arrogant. She could not find our booking, then as i was showing her the booking on my phone, she ignored me and made a phone call spoken in chinese, then said follow me, but you must be out by 7.45pm

    This is our favourite Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. Food is always excellent, good service and great atmosphere. We will be back again and again.

    The restaurant itself was nice, and had a good atmosphere however we had to wait 50 minutes for our food. At least 2 groups that came in and ordered after us got theirs before us, which was a bit frustrating and whenever we asked the server where our food was they would just say ‘it’s coming soon’. Based on how long the food took and the quality of the dish, I won’t be returning

    The lady who greeted us couldn't find the booking when i turned up having booked for 6 ppl online. Was told to come back as 'restaurant was still not clean' at booked time 530pm. Didn't come back as didn't get a good vibe, no one called me back to see if we were still coming so guess it wasn't meant to be. Gave 3 out of 5 stars for food as it sounded this, but we didn't get to eat.

    Deep fried ice cream was huge, try it! Red bean pancake also nice as dessert but not the banana fritter. Recommended chilli wontons and steamed custard buns.

    Chinese cuisine, but a little bit expensive than others. Good service and easy to find the location.

    We’ve been to this restaurant multiple times and haven’t had a bad experience until this one. Upon entering we were yelled at for changing our booking earlier in the day from 7 to 6 people. We were also told we had to be out by 7.45 sharp, very aggressively. That would have been fine except no one took our orders for 40 mins - including drinks. The drinks orders also kept getting mixed up or forgotten. One of the main meals didn’t arrive till ten mins before we had to leave - which resulted in my friend having to eat quickly whilst we were having our table cleaned up. I understand there are sittings but we need to be attended to accordingly. Out side of that our food as always was delicious - especially the dumplings.

    Nice but not so amazing to justify $110 per head. Dumplings were full of flavour and a great start to the meal. Everything else on the banquet was ho-hum after that. Nothing that you couldn’t have ordered at any suburban Chinese restaurant at a quarter of the price.

    Service was incredibly slow. We had to ask for water on 3 occasions even though coke came out in 5 minutes. I think they also forgot our fried rice and noodles as we had to ask for them and they came at the end when we pretty much finished lunch. Very disappointing. Their service isn’t usually that bad but it was terrible this occasion.

    Worst experience. The host is not even capable to be one. Made a booking and she told me she can’t give me a table as it was last minute, asked her how long would I have to wait? She can’t even give me an answer. The restaurant wasn’t really busy at all. Such a bad host

About the restaurant

Peking Duck Paradise It’s like walking into a palace when you enter Man Tong Kitchen in the Crown Casino complex. The rich red and gold colours, marble pillars, giant wooden lanterns and empty birdcages certainly make a grand impression. But when it comes to the food, it’s entirely approachable and familiar, making Man Tong just right for a big — and hungry — group of diners. That’s what Man Tong is all about, really — a full house of family and friends eating together, whether for a special occasion or just because. Man Tong gives you an excuse for a gathering with its authentic Chinese cuisine, which highlights different regions and cities of China. Start with some dim sum and dumplings. You can choose steamed, pan fried or deep fried. The appetisers don’t stop there. Go for the lobster or Chinese sausage before moving on to one of many soups, including a crabmeat sweet corn soup. If you’ve brought a group, order the Peking duck; it’s a signature dish not to be missed. Whatever your tastes, you’ll find plenty of options on the expansive menu at Man Tong. All the more reason to grab a group of friends and try a bit of it all. Best dish: Peking duck
