We had lunch but bypassed the very well priced lunch specials and went for the Beef Rendang and the Lamb Curry from the main (dinner) menu. What a treat, haven't had tasty Malay curries like those for a long time. Big portions (possibly too big...More

Beef rendang was delicious, soft seller crab was over cooked but tasty. Wait staff friendly. Good location near theatre.

Chinta Ria Soul always seems busy and has a good reputation. We visited on New Years day and the queues were out into the street. A typical old style St Kilda restaurant, inside is quite dark and tables have been crammed in. Service is friendly...More
