When it's been a long day, a text from my partner reading "Melati?" is an instant antidote. This is one of those little places that looks mediocre from the outside (and possibly also inside) but is actually a gem of great, home cooked food. Having just marked it's 30th anniversary, and run by a charming couple, Melati is a place... More

This restaurant has been operating 30+ years and the service is good and the food quick, but it's not tasty. We had three mains and two soups. The vegetable soup was tasty but the chicken soup was flavourless. The chicken wit ginger was good, but the vegetables were ...hard to describe.

Ordered their babi guling and ayam bumbu. My friend who never heard of indonesia cuisine loved it so much. I too loved it. Great to see authentic Bali cuisine and atmosphere at the restaurant. Not your quick and eat place, as the food takes its time to be cooked properly. Around 15-20 mins of waiting eventhough we were the only... More

Went back to Melati after about a year’s absence. This little family run Indonesian Restaurant ( BYO only ) has been operating for 20 years plus. It is a survivor - the Saturday night we were there we almost half filled the place ( thank goodness , as it was extremely quiet ! ) with only 4 other diners and... More

If not for the lovely gentleman who served us, I would have rated Melati even lower. Everything was wrong about our dinner experience. The restaurant was freezing cold on a very chilly winter's night. We asked for the heating to be adjusted (turned on??) but the gentleman just pointed at the airconditioner in the wall and said it was working.... More

A small family run Indonesian restaurant in Camberwell, this one surprised us with an extensive menu. Traditional Balinese cuisine, with a good selection of vegetarian options in entrée and mains. The service was great, husband and wife team, cheerful and helpful. We ordered 4 entrées to share for 6 and 2 main dishes. The portions were quite generous and we... More

This restaurant is such a gem with delicious home style balinese meals cooked with care and attention. The restaurant has such a peaceful ambience with Balinese decor and soothing Balinese music in the background. The dishes we had were all excellent, authentic, flavoursome and quite generous for the very inexpensive price. We would encourage you to give this restaurant a... More

Melati looks very ordinary from the outside but its small cosy room is decorated with Indonesian artefacts and the suroundings are outweighed by the delicious, inexpensive food. This is a long-time family concern and the night we were there the wife was cooking and her friendly, charming Balinese husband was serving. Friends who have been coming here for years pre-ordered...
