Get the Broadsheet Table at David’s
David Zhou’s eponymous Chinese eatery is always popular. Now you can skip the waitlist and book in for a feast (including the famous weekend yum cha) with Access.
Tucked away on Prahran’s Cecil Place, David’s is one of Melbourne’s most iconic – and well-loved – eateries.
The restaurant prides itself on authentic and non-fussy Shanghai cuisine, made using recipes passed down through generations. On weekends, crowds pile in for an endless flow of bao, dumplings, ribs and more at David’s unlimited yum cha – with vegetarian and vegan options available too. And the full evening menu features a number of wholesome dishes rarely found anywhere else.
Our top picks from the menu are the saucy crackling pork san choy bow; dumplings stuffed with mapo tofu and Sichuan pepper sauce; and the unmissable Shanghai xiaolongbao with vinegar sauce.
Get a table for four at 7pm on Wednesday and Thursday or 8pm on Friday and Saturday. Or, book in for unlimited yum cha at midday on Saturday or 11.30am on Sunday.
You can book 30 days in advance (and a minimum of two days prior) of your desired booking date. Please note Saturday and Sunday yum cha requires pre-payment.
