Middle Eastern | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

I’ve been here a couple of times mainly on special occasions and haven’t had any issues with the waitresses as they’ve always been lovely and 100% excellent service, but this time the waiter we had spoke in a rough, annoyed manner. Her accent was strong so we had to ask back/forth a couple of times so wasn’t sure if that was what annoyed her. The word I used was can we please get the banquet menu and she snapped ‘no banquet here only set menu.’ She was definitely different to the other waitresses we normally get who were friendly and gentle.

Japanese | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Girlfriend found this place on both Social Media and through adverts and such. We went while on a short weekend to Melbourne, and I will say, that the Omakase that they provide is amazing. The food on the night was a 19 course menu, each meal tasting unique from one another. All the food served on the night was prepared and made to eat in front of us. A very friendly as well as a very knowledgeable chef, providing an explanation for each meal prepared for us. If you are after a fun dining experience with some fantastic Japanese Omakase, this is definitely the place to book and try out. The price for the dining experience was dear but I would say, the experience, the company as well as the great food is worth every cent. I highly recommend this to those who are interested in a good Omakase experience and want to have a good evening out with partners/friends. More

Denmark House is a small piece of Denmark in the middle of Melbourne CBD. Offering the best of Denmark: wonderful Danish food, served in beautiful Danish design in a enjoyable atmosphere of Danish music and “hygge”, which translates as ‘coziness’.

revolution and the restaurant and bar will provide you with a traditional yet modern Danish experience.

For lunch we offer 20 different kinds of “smørrebrød” – the traditional Danish open sandwich. You can choose your own selection or go for the tasting platter, a healthy lunch option when you fancy something different.

In the evening we serve a contemporary menu inspired by New Nordic cuisine with an emphasis on comfort foods so guests sample true Danish ‘hygge’ when dining at Denmark House.More

Pop-Up Buddha is open from December 2018 to December 2019, it has been created due to the pending closure of Chocolate Buddha for renovations in March 2019. Our offering is izakaya style and varies from the Chocolate Buddha menu until Chocolate Buddha closes when we will bring some of our guests most loved dishes across.
