A newcomer to Melbourne, I love exploring the city and sourrounds by day and night, finding bargains, learning new things, the great outdoors and Melbourne life in general.

You won't be hungry for days
Finding a restaurant with a $15 eat-as-much-as-you-like menu on Chapel Street is quite an achievement. This offer is not widely publicised and you have to ask for the special dinner menu when you are seated. Don't be embarrassed to ask; this is excellent value and we all appreciate a bargain.

The wait staff bring an assortment of dishes to your table including buns, dumplings, noodles, rice, spring rolls and greens. You simply eat as much as you like. Wastage is discouraged so be careful not to over-order. If there are dishes you want more or less of, you simply ask the waiter and the chef will oblige.

The dishes range from average to excellent. I highly recommend the red bean spring rolls and the Chinese greens and would happily spend $15 on these alone.

The $15 menu is ideal for groups and you'll find plenty of students in the restaurant. The service does leave something to be desired but for a cheap, tasty, filling and quick meal it ticks all the boxes.

Drinks and corkage incur additional costs and it is cash only.

Next time you are in Chapel Street, give Shanghai Dumpling a try. Just make sure you leave plenty of room for a feast.
