Perfect from start to finish. The theatre from trying to find the venue to being welcomed into a stylised beautiful environment. Wine and sake matching are resentful to take in the whole experience. More

Southeast Asian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

I love Sunda's fresh take of familiar South-East Asian dishes - the vegemite curry roti and the grilled mackerel assam laksa were my favourites for the night. Service is warm and welcoming and spot on. This is becoming our favourite city restaurant when you want something a bit more than everyday dining. More

Modern Australian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Recently took my daughter here for her 30th b.day -just her and myself (mum). Was told over phone everyone gets a free shot drink but birthday people get 2. My daughter only got one shot. Ordered the pork (menu price $60 but later i noticed i was charged $80). The decor wasnt rustic like we thought a *Viking era* would be, was bit too modern. And was told they dont have Bundarberg rum only their own, yet both bars are enormous. Our personal staff - Nele was very friendly and helpful. The girl serving drinks downstairs was more intetested in chatting with a friend - took 25 minutes to get our drinks. Been now - wont go again More

Chinese (Shanghai) | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Nong Tang Noodle House on Bourke Street is a go to stop for inner city Melburnians, looking to quell hunger pangs with a hit of Chinese fare. Housed on the ground level of Midcity Arcade, this venue welcomes diners with a sharp black and red exterior, giving way to whitewashed walls and dark furniture, accented with Oriental touches, creating a calming Zen ambiance. Kick start a food journey with Old Nong Tang Eight Treasures in hot sauce with pork, chicken, potato, carrot, bean curd, peanuts and Chinese chilli sauce, or perhaps housemade juicy pan fried pork dumplings. Be tempted by a traditional Shanghai dish of Yang Chun noodles with spring onion and sesame oil, or dip a spoon into a delicious broth that has been simmering for more than 50 hours to enhance exotic flavours and textures.More
