We had a good night in a great setting with first class service to match. The menu is filled with a wide variety and fusions. The 7-9 course banquet options make great dining experiences. To be honest there were wow moments however there were a few dishes which were nothing special. Long bench set up which is great for large... More

We dined here on Friday night with a group of friends. The staff were attentive and friendly. We had the mid range banquet ($79 pp). It was very good overall but the first couple of dishes tasted similar and were quite spicy. The pork be,my was the standout and the lamb ribs were really good too. Next time we would... More

The staff were considerate and helpful from the moment we walked in with a child in a pusher, making space for us and providing a highchair. The waitress was friendly and attentive, even joking with our hyperactive pre-schooler and making sure all our needs were met. The food was delicious! We ordered too much - even sharing the plates, the... More

I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend. We had the pork belly and the lamb shoulder. Both dishes were incredible - such fantastic flavours! Service was also very good. If you are in the area make sure you visit!

Our dinner for the 3 of us was fabulous. We had the pork belly, prawn stir fry, Burmese pork curry, fried greens and dinner rice. Fabulous meal and the wait staff were terrific with their recommendations and service. Would definitely recommend.

This place lives up to the hype, and is a must-visit when craving Thai food in Melbourne. A welcome break from the usual fare of Pad Thai and Red/Yellow/Green curries, this place has a unique and flavorful menu with friendly staff located vibrant modern atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and the selection, while limited, does not disappoint. The intent is family-style... More

Went with my girl friends to this place. Had rice cakes, cured salmon and crab in entrees. Absolutely delicious. Lamb curry and tofu curry was yum in mains. The eggplant was beautifully done part of tofu curry.

The food is excellent. I always return when I'm in Melbourne as it is too good to miss. You can order the set meal and have it modified for dietary requirements (Gluten, Dairy). Fantastic

Went for a night out with my family! The vibe was great and it was so busy for a Monday night! Decided to share some mains which were all amazing! The pork belly was Devine! We also had the soft shell crab, greens, chicken wings and a few other dishes. The servings sizes were a little small for the price... More

After a starter elsewhere I came to try the pork belly. It was delicious and packed full of flavour. A half serve was more than enough for one. I also tried the twice cooked lamb ribs starter, but that was totally dry and bland. But the lovely bar lady / waitress recognised I'd left most of it and gave me... More

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.
