Red Hot Wok in South Yarra

We were on our way home from The Australian Athletics Tour: Qantas Melbourne World Challenge around 8pm. So we needed to drop by somewhere for a quick but satisfying dinner. We have been to Red Hot Wok for lunch before and found the food to be warming and authentic Chinese Malaysian at a reasonable price. Fortunately, there was a table available. 

We ordered three dishes for to be shared between three of us. The Salted Egg Chicken Spareribs were fragrant with curry leaves and tasty and the meat moist. The tofu has a smooth texture and the sauce flavoursome. The Thai Chilli Eggplant was nice and soft with Thai basil. All of us were satisfied by the end of the meal. Total bill came up to a bit over $60.

$60- its a bit pricey isn't it? I have found things for a lot cheaper!
There's heaps and heaps of places in the city where it is cheaper. Have you tried Papparich and the Straits of Malacca?

Hi Sally,

Yes, I've tried Papparich and Straits of Malacca. They serve mainly hawkers style food which cost between $11-$12 per dish.

For Chinese nowadays, main dishes are around $14-$20. And they charge for rice per person. I think Red Hot Wok is not on the cheap side but reasonable.
