TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie

I have had a lot of Chinese food in a lot of restaurants in Melbourne but I think this was my favorite Chinese restaurant till now. The quality of the food was top notch and I think the experience was more than value for money.

First of all the interior of this place is immaculate. There is a tree growing inside the restaurant. The lighting is really calm and soothing and the seating area is very roomy. The staff is very professional. They were always smiling and had prompt answers to all my questions about their food. I ordered fried spring rolls ($7), Crispy BBQ pork Snow Buns ($7.80), Tom Yum Goong fish soup with Hokkien noodles and chicken ($13.80), and a steak with black pepper sauce and mushroom on rice ($14.50). I used the awesome Zomato gold so my noodle soup was complimentary.

These were one of the best spring rolls I have ever tasted. They were crispy and light on the outside. The texture was different from any spring rolls that I have had earlier. They were cooked fresh and tasted amazing with the sauce that came with the rolls.

Snow buns are a specialty at this place so I had to try those. They have a section in the restaurant called Bun Bar where these snow buns are served from. The buns were very light. The main thing about these buns was the texture, it was so light and airy. They looked very delicate and were presented beautifully. The flavor of the pork filling was amazing.

Steak that I got was cooked brilliantly. It was soft but a bit chewy. But the hero of this dish was the black pepper sauce. I love black pepper and this sauce hit just the right spots on my taste buds. The flavor was great and the rice added extra texture to the dish and I loved every bite of it.

I wanted the Hokkien noodles in my soup because they are a bit chewy and I like that in noodles. The flavor and consistency of the soup were perfect. Every spoonful of the soup was very satisfying. The chicken in the soup was cooked beautifully, it was juicy and tender and the quantity was very generous.

I loved every bit about this restaurant. The quality of the food is very good, the quantity is very good and I think relatively the price is less, this is the combination I look for in a great restaurant. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to have some good food.
