Brand Story

Founded in 2010, we were one of the first Chinese restaurants in Melbourne's Chinatown. We have been bringing Shanghai Xiaolongbao and juicy dumplings to Melbourne through “Shanghai Street” since the very beginning. We believe that Shanghai Xiaolongbao is one of Melbourne diners' most notable Shanghai landmarks.


As specialists in Shanghai food, “Shanghai Street” is dedicated to taking our customers on a culinary journey of discovery, with our home-made traditional Xiaolongbaos and fried mini buns, juicy dumplings, authentic dim sum, traditional cold appetizers, and delicious meat dishes.


We maintain our originality by using the highest-quality and freshest ingredients of the season. We are also committed to giving our clients first-rate service in an elegant dining environment.


We have three restaurants in the heart of Melbourne called "Shanghai Street".

Shanghai Street at 146-148 Little Bourke Street in Chinatown

Shanghai Street at 303-305 Elizabeth Street

Shanghai Street at 342 Little Bourke Street


We also have our flagship restaurant, Shanghai Flower, which focuses more on fusion cuisine for business and family gatherings. It is located at 360 Bourke Street in Melbourne’s CBD.


Shanghai Street Restaurant invites you to experience a wide range of authentic Shanghai cuisine!
