We chose the chef’s menu rather than Australian specials. My husband had the wine flight, I told the sommelier that I would taste each of his wines and order a glass when there was one that I particularly liked, something that I have done in other world class restaurants. This sommelier proceeded to give me a tasting measure at each course, this is a stratagem that I will be selling to my regular restaurants back in Scotland. All the service was at this level. More

Maha is a very good restaurant in a basic but developing part of the melbourne CBD. The flavours are very good but for lunch Monday the menu is quite tight which I understand as the patronage will be limited. The service was first class and the wine list ( the most important thing) was very good. Had not been there for 5 years but need to go back ASAP. More

My daughter and I dined on at 12 noon on the 17th September. We were the first to be seated in the dining room then two other tables of two were seated beside us after us. They got there food before us and had their empty dishes cleared before us, even though we had finished and our plates were empty first. I actually had to ask to have our table cleared whilst they were serving us our scones. Not impressed. I was facing a wall I had my back to the restaurant when I did turn around to view More

Always special to dine at Greensborough RSL and the staff are fantastic, friendly and fast with the service. The food is better than most Hotels in the area. The greetings at the front desk of the restaurant are excellent and the staff are very accommodating. If you want a window seat they will try to oblige, they always ask, how was your meal. I have always found the RSL staff at all the local clubs are far better than hotels and restaurants in the local area. More friendly, not stressed, and always enjoy a joke and friendly chat. It makes you feel very important just to dine at the Greensborough RSL as most of the staff get to know you and they greet you with a special (Hi- welcome back) HELLO, if you become a regular. Very Special Staff and food. More

Prices are definitely not cheap but for the quality I would say worth it. The staff can be a hit and miss. Most of the staff this night was nice but just over worked and didn't see the many many times when we tried to get their attention until I went up to the counter and requested or get the water myself. The maitre d was the worse. The only time she cracked a smile is when we arrived. But once I produced the voucher, her faced turned and that was it. She wasn't particularly friendly and for some strange reason shot me dirty stares whenever we passed glances. Oh well. 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

Had a great experience. From service to food, everything was amazing. The only thing was we were celebrating our friend’s birthday and would be great if restaurant can organise a birthday celebration like wrtie a msg on the dessert plate and etc to be more memorable. Apart from that, everything was enjoyable. More

We have had a good experience for dining in Sunda. Apparently, I am familiar with South East Asian foods, the foods in Sunda I have not had them before. Modernist style was combined with Australian local produces. Eventually, it was a perfect combination. Outstandingly, curry pudding with rice crackers was my favorite dish. More

The antipasto selection was unusual and so tasty - not a morsel left. Everyone in our group enjoyed their main course and the shared accompanying salads. Highly recommend. Lovely atmosphere in the evening and so good not to need to shout at the person next to you or across the other side of the table. More
