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

Wonderful meal and excellent service. Only downside was that we were a table for 2 at the back section of the Restaurant and 2 of the other tables were large (possibly 10 each table or close to that number) and rather noisy. The other table was for 4 people.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Flower Drum. We had the four course banquet and we enjoyed the sophisticated Asian flavours combined in this delicious meal. Service was friendly and very attentive.

Disconcerting to enter the lift to find it reeked of cigarettes! Not a good start. The food very good to excellent, the service attentive after a slightly slow start. Pricey but good wine list by the glass. Not sure ill rush back , it seems to have lost a bit of the stellar quality I remember from previous visits.

Loved the food and service. Older decor but tables are spaced out,not jam packed. We were there for around 2.5 hours but were not rushed. Overall great experience.

Great place as always. Been going there for nearly 30 years. Consistent with food, service and always a pleasure to see Jason and the head waiter Henry.

Great food cooked to perfection with amazing flavors. In fact, one of the best Peking Ducks I have ever eaten. The wine list is extensive, I even saw a bottle for over $12,000!

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
