My husband chose Kisume for his birthday dinner and in his words “best meal I have ever had”! The quality of food was exceptional, the speed for each dish was on point and although a shared table felt like it was just you in the room with the chef! Wonderful experience we both enjoyed thoroughly More

Restaurant is in an old converted home with great front porches. The atmosphere is great with the downstairs being more lively, and the upstairs being a more romantic setting. Food was pretty good overall, but could've been a bit better value. More

A really lovely place for a pre-theatre dinner. Service was warm and attentive, and the food was delicious. We chose the pre-theatre two course meal, which was prompt, exactly the right amount of food and quite enjoyable. It was also an excellent price, especially as the quality of the food was so high. Will absolutely return when seeing another show at the Regent Theatre. More

We had the feed me menu. The food was ok. Some of the dishes like papaya salad could be more flavoursome. Lacked the punch. A bit too sweet. Could do with a little chillie and lime in the dressing. Desserts were ok but not amazing for the price charged. The cocktails were good. More

Went for Yum Char again. Good selection of dumplings as usual. What was memorable this time was the service. Even though the a la carte is not offered during Yum Char the lovely young man who waited on us managed to organise some fried rice for my friend who was unwell and only wanted the rice. Kudos for customer focused service. More

Great place, awesome for groups. Yummy food and attentive staff. we did the bottomless brunch - drinks were regularly topped up (cocktails weren't too strong) and were really tasty. Staff were awesome (mentions to the bald British guy with the beard!), and every item could be amended or substituted to suit our tables dietary requirements. More

A 5 star restaurant befitting a first class hotel. The rib eye was a quality steak cooked perfectly, the way we requested. The lamb rump was as tender and tasteful as I have ever had the pleasure of consuming. The roasted eggplant was an unexpected delight. The sides were wonderful complements to the mains. And the hero of the meal: any chef that can make brussel sprouts the star in this constellation of fine food is a magician! The service is attentive and unpretentious. More

Hello Chocolate Budha, We, my daughter and I are meeting & dining at your restaurant for number of years now. She works at St. Kilda Road and I get the train. Very convenient. I find the staff friendly , helpful and obliging. The renovation doesn't bother us. As always, I reserve the table and we have a lovely time while catching up on things while having dinner. Hope it is not too stressful for the staff to cope with the renovation. Thank you for being looked after. More
