This restaurant is fantastic! Great service, Julie and Amy are so friendly. The foods are beautiful. I have heard they were just change the menu. It's so wonder to try their new dishes.

i have been to the East imperial on a couple occasions both for the yum cha and also ordered from the menu. cant fault the service or quality of food. as good as it gets for Chinese cuisine in Melbourne.

Yamcha on Sunday's is a must do before you die.Wait for the steamed dumplings.

I’ve only been to East Imperial for yum cha once but I’ll definitely be going back again. This well-decorated restaurant provides such an elegant and comfortable atmosphere that is just way ahead of ordinary Chinese restaurants like those in Chinatown and Richmond. Straightaway you feel like you have stepped into a different age (dynasty?) behind those big wooden front doors. Common dim sum dishes can all be found, with some added special dishes such as Wasabi Prawns and Spicy Calamari Tentacles. Vegetarian dishes like Spinach Dumplings can also be found on the menu. Over 100 wine, including some rare ones, and a variety of Chinese beers are listed in their comprehensive wine list, which added some extra points over standard yum cha restaurants. Waitstaffs are friendly and helpful, and food price is reasonable, given that their dim sum are more well-made than the others. A thumb-up yum cha place that Chinese food lovers just can’t miss.
