THE POTSTICKER
Melbourne, Victoria

"It's a bit traditional and a bit modern" says owner Eric Wong, formerly of Cina in Armadale, of his latest restaurant, The Potsticker. Named after the Chinese pan-fried dumplings, The Potsticker's menu is Chinese with Malaysian and Japanese influences. There are substantial Asian dishes available, but the menu also offers a staggering array of over 60 dim sim varieties and there's lots of vegetarian and gluten free options.

DETAILS

The restaurant's interior looks almost as good as the plates of gourmet art coming out of the kitchen. Sleek, dark wood finishes, high ceilings and glossy timber floorboards combine well with the diffused bronze lighting to create an intimate and inviting ambiance. Tranquil Chinese music plays softly in the background, harmonising with the sound of bubbling water and the humming chatter of enthusiastic diners to give The Potsticker its own intangible energy.

FOOD & BEVERAGES
The restaurant offers an Asian fusion menu comprised of an amalgamation of flavoursome Chinese, Japanese and Malaysian cuisine. The Potsticker boasts a comprehensive wine list comprised of local and international drops that range in price from an affordable $20 bottle of red to a premium $3500 magnum of Penfolds Grange.

This restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere, friendly and professional service and very yummy food. The only disappointing thing is the fact that Chinese tea ended up costing us $31.50 for 3 small pots, which were the size of one cup.

I ordered from the small vegetarian selection, food and service were good and surrounding were nice but serving size was disappointing. Portions should be larger, I wouldn't personally go back even though did taste ok.

Look past the exterior of this restaurant as the experience inside is great. Quirky surroundings, pleasant staff, and buzzing with conversation as people enjoy themselves. The range of food is excellent, the dishes we tried were all first class and the wine list a good range of choice with reasonable prices. Well worth a vist and we will certainly be putting it on our list of favorites.

This restaurant is not the cheapest but it offers good food and pleasant hospitality. Food is considered to have high standard even from a Chinese perspective. The fusion pan seared oyster is very very yummy. The banana fritter coated with barley tempura is a must have even for someone like me who doesn't like this kind of fusion food. The owner and other waitresses are very friendly and helpful which makes you want to come back again and again. The pond with seasoned flowers and plants and fish when you enter is a centrepeice that attracts your attention.

This restaurant was very expensive for what it was. The Dim Sum was not fresh, but frozen. You can get nicer Dim Sum in Springvale. We were excited by the sound of the Duck salad with sesame dressing, however it turned out to be similar to a coles mixed leaf salad, with a few cold pieces of duck thrown on top and mayonase - yuck!. The salt and pepper calamari was overcooked and had no salt and pepper flavour. The waitress kept bringing out pots of tea which ended up being very expensive. The fried ice cream balls were not up to scratch. The coating on the balls still had hard sugar crystals within it and was not pleasant. The best part of the meal was the Grant Burge Champaigne. I would not go back to this restaurant and we were disappointed we wasted our time and money.
