Flower Drum is Melbourne’s iconic Cantonese restaurant, the kind of place where visiting dignitaries reserve a table when they are in town and locals book for a special occasion. Impeccable produce, cooking perfection and discreet service for over 30 years have contributed to its formidable reputation. Dishes such as crayfish with ginger are magnificently fresh, and no diner should leave without trying the famous Peking duck. Bookings are essential, and often lunch at weekends can be a less busy option.
