Confucius Says... Overview

Everyone eats and drinks, yet only few appreciate the taste of food – Confucius Says… This Asian fusion restaurant on Lygon Street in Carlton, embodies traditional Chinese urns, hand-painted mah-jong blocks hanging on the wall and lion statues to bring a laid back, family-oriented vibe ideal for all occasions. Whether seeking a light snack or hearty dinner, Confucius’ menu includes both small and large dishes from chicken and scallop dumplings in a light broth, salt and pepper squid with herb and lychee salad, to DongPo gelatinous pork belly with a sticky reduction sauce. Seafood lovers will salivate over a mussel bowl, with rice wine, chilli and ginger broth, or perhaps soft-shell crab with pork floss roll, XO mayo and lettuce; while those group dining may opt for a Confucius feast.

Best Known For

Tea smoked duck, gua bao and accompaniments.
