We had a work lunch here with a group of 14, indulging in a set menu. It was surprisingly comfortable considering the size of our group - on big long table, with cushioned bench-seating along the wall. The food was AMAZING. In particular, being gluten-free vegetarian, I was very well taken care of, which is rarely the case. On this... More

The offer was for two courses plus glass of wine/beer and a tea/coffee for $38 per head. We were delighted by the dishes presented to us. First came a series... More

Wow! We chose the 5 course menu and absolutely everything was delicious. The service was exceptional. Their knowledge, from both wait and kitchen staff, re dietary requirements was impressive. Will definitely return.

Came here with my parents and a friend from Kuwait. Food was fantastic and the friend from Kuwait said it was some of the best middle eastern cuisine he has tried. The service was great, they catered to all our dietary requirements. Only problem is it gets really noisy but everything else is great. Will def go again.

We went in a group of 12 and had the 5 course meal, the food was outstanding, the service was excellent and the timing between courses was great. The small touches, the dishes used and at the end the take home present made it most importantly a wonderful experience. I'll definitely will be going back. Thank you

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
