The next time a date night dumpling session is on the cards, there's one spot that should definitely be on your romance radar. Teahouse, retail store and restaurant Oriental Teahouse is encouraging patrons to get extra steamy this winter, unveiling a new supercharged edition of its board-game-meets-dining experience 'Dumplings for Dating'.

Available to all bookings made from July 13 onwards at both its CBD and South Yarra outposts, the dine-and-play offering is suited to groups of two to four and is filled with flirty questions designed to bring out your cheeky side. Oriental Teahouse first launched the concept in 2018, but this latest version is pegged to be the sauciest yet.

Dumplings for Dating is a four-stage game that clocks in at $82 per person, and includes both drinks and a slew of shared dishes for your table. You'll roll dice and make your way around the game board, answering fun — and often revealing — questions throughout the various rounds, which feature names like 'Break the Ice', 'Foreplay', 'Deep and Meaningful' and 'Happily Ever After'.

While your table bonds over embarrassing confessions and shared stories, you can also feast on an array of signature dishes — think, handmade dumplings stuffed with the likes of lemongrass chicken, chilli wagyu beef, or pork and chive, plus dreamy sides and the kitchen's white chocolate dumplings for dessert. Matching cocktails promise to help calm any jangly nerves — you'll get both the lychee-infused Pink Panther and the Hello Vera concoctions, as well as a choice of beer, wine or bubbly.

Got a date with dietaries? The Dumplings for Dating menu caters to vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free requirements.

Dumplings for Dating 3.0 is now available to play at both Oriental Teahouse outposts: 455 Chapel Street, South Yarra, and 378 Little Collins Street, Melbourne. Reservations are a must and you'll need to mention Dumplings for Dating when you book your table.
