When I think Tea House, I think tea pots and tea bags so everytime I passed Oriental TeaHouse I didn’t stop to think they ever served food which they absolutely do. I would their food selections as yum-cha style servings and dumplings are their specialty. But to showcase their food selections Oriental Tea House in Melbourne Central is currently running a special called “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough”.

Love asian food? Wish you could eat all the oysters and peiking duck you can eat? Then you have to try China Bar Signature Buffet in Burwood!!! It was like a dream come true walking into that place.
The tables are prepared nicely, there’s plenty of space and the place is nice and clean.
Their dinner sessions are from 5:45pm-7:45pm & 8pm-10pm. 2hrs you say? Trust me it’s plenty of time and I advise you to take your time because it’s easy to get full at this place.
Want some raw fish? Ask the sushi chef and he’d slice you some raw salmon, yellowtail & raw tuna. I couldn’t stop myself from having too much sushi & sashimi but thought to myself I can get sushi anytime, so I diverted my tactics to seafood!!!
I probably had 2 dozens oysters, a dozen prawns and a whole lot of scallops.
Peiking duck is my favourite and there was an unlimited supply of it. There were two chefs stationed at the peiking duck and duck soup section making sure there was enough duck to go around. At one point they were struggling to keep up but managed to keep up with my demands.
They even had a section for noodle lovers, where you could tell the chef to put together the ingredients and then he’d cook the noodle dish for you.
You can’t call it an asian buffet without the dim sum section.
I didn’t manage my time well and got full with 45mins. I had another 1hr 15mins to go but couldn’t help myself to the beautiful wall of desserts!!!
And if you’re a fan of those $1 asian flavoured ice-creams at your local asian grocery store then stuff your face with all these (I know I did)
I would have to make this place one of my top 10 restaurants to try and I’m going to make any excuse to go here at least once a year from now on.
There’s plenty more food there but I can’t cover it all, so only my favourites this time around.
Here’s a few tips for you:
-No need to arrive early (just make sure you book – plenty of tables)
-Take your time (eat slowly)
-Don’t have too much sushi (filled with rice = get full quickly)
-Don’t waste food, I think they have a disclaimer that they’ll charge you if you waste food
-Make sure you leave room for dessert!!!!
