Chinese (Shanghai)
Inspired by the rich heritage of our founder, David Zhou, David’s is a place for lively gatherings centred on simple food that brings joy to any occasion. David has loved wholesome Chinese fare since he was a young boy growing up in Shanghai. Since opening David’s, his first Chinese restaurant in Melbourne, he has built a loyal following of customers who return time and time again to enjoy his modern spin on authentic Shanghai cuisine. Thanks to David’s fresh take, the restaurant has built a reputation for serving some of the best Chinese food in Melbourne, including succulent pork belly and deliciously plump dumplings. With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, extensive menu, and unlimited weekend yum cha, it’s no wonder David’s is regarded as an all-round crowd pleaser.

    A fantastic place for a special birthday lunch with the family. The food was great, very yummy and I just wish my stomach was bigger to eat everything all over again.

    Enjoyed our meal although they forgot to take our order so we did wait a while until we eventually requested someone take our food order. We shared 5 entrees and they were all very fresh. The decor has changed since we were last there many years ago and we preferred the previous decor, the ambience was better. Great spacing between diners and they did check our vaccinations on entering.

    Maybe 2 too many courses for us. Time between corses seemed to be a little rushed probably due to time constraints we had an 11.30 sitting for Sunday yum cha.

    Food is as always very tasty and the portions are the perfect size. My only suggestion is that with your range of banquets you have ones available with the option of having beef, chicken or lamb. I am sure you have customers like us who do not eat pork. Another point would be to have a better choice of Australian wines by the glass. Both Red and White.

    The food was ok, nothing to write home about though, and the room is a little tired but the service was fantastic. Very friendly and welcoming.

    Outstanding dinner at David’s. The service was excellent and the ambiance of the restaurant is beautiful. Food - consistently very good and timed well. The noise was very low and lighting - perfect! A great experience and I look forward to returning.

    Great food, good service. The decor isn't fancy but it's quite suited to the cuisine and fits nicely. Would've liked the gap between the dishes to be a bit shorter as it took about 2 hours to get the banquet out but otherwise, it was a good place to dine at.
