One of the best meals we have had in Melbourne. They were flexible n creating a five-course banquet for us and every dish was superb, equally matched by the exceptional service.

It never fails to impress, great food and service like no other. It’s always such a great pleasure whether a special occasion or just a quick lunch, love it. There’s nothing I’d change about the Flower Drum.

Fantastic Chinese fare with impeccable service. This was my 5th visit and everyone that I have taken here has been impressed by the food and service. Will definitely be coming back. The seafood fried rice with black truffle is a must order!

Let me start with the end of our dinner. The desert (fried ice cream with fruit sauce $ 17) was very disappointing. Could be much more refined for such a noble restaurant, however, Chinese are really excelling in desert skills. The 4 course set menu is of good quality and enough for two people if you order maybe 2 small side dishes extra. Service very attentive.

Quality of food is very good, especially pearl meat is most enjoyable. However, it is taking rather long time for all our food to turn up. It took more than 1 hour to finish our lunch. Service is good and attentive.

We visit this restaurant every time when we are in Melbourne as the food is really good and very different from what we can get in Perth. They are also very accommodating to our dietary needs. Excellent. Definitely recommended

Very over priced. Quality of food great but very impersonal service, atmosphere not welcoming.

About Flower Drum

The complete Cantonese package.. In China, 'Flower Drum' is known as a traditional dance famous for its beauty and elegance. In Melbourne, it’s a similar story. ‘Flower Drum’ is a Chinese restaurant that displays the same elements of refinement and delicacy through their concept of fine dining Cantonese cuisine and dedicated service. Put simply, it’s a complete Cantonese package: the service is second to none, the food - well it’s outstanding and the classical dining room is thick with a ripe sense of occasion. Enjoy Cantonese classics such as duck wontons or fall-apart honey-braised pork ribs that come with two essential accompaniments – rice and a finger bowl. Native produce shines in dishes such as stir-fried pearl meat and the luscious, complex wallaby tail soup with wolfberries and yam, while the heavy-hitting wine list drips with prestige. Restaurants come - and some of them go, but none play exactly the same role as this one does. Best dish: fall-apart honey-braised pork ribs
