Started out with a negroni as you do. Octopus with Barley cooked well tender with good flavor. Tagliatelle with black truffle that nights special, unfortunately well executed though lacked flavor the truffles just didn’t have the punch and at $50 + dollars it needed to be special it didn’t meet expectations. O Conner Hanger steak rare top quality and cooked to perfection just a little too much salt but otherwise great. The highlight of the meal came in the form of a very well cooked and balanced roast carrots with honey and a very delicate goat cured that dish as it happens was a side dish and gets 11 out of 10. The manager Mohamed made suggestions to the wine by the glass he got it. He also looked after myself most of the evening and made the evening very enjoyable. The staff have very good knowledge of the menu and are informative, though a little pushed at times as the place got quite busy for a Tuesday It’s just what I expected from the Grill and would definitely recommend. A thanks to the chefs job well done. More

Oyster blade, porterhouse, eye fillet, and scotch fillet - OMG! We were asked to try a small portion of the regular beef and then the premium to compare the difference because we didn’t know what to select. There is a huge huge difference in taste, texture, juiciness, tenderness, and flavour. Surprisingly, the price for the premium is so reasonable and affordable! Service was great, drinks were awesome, the meat...seriously the best in Melbourne! Coming back next week! The porterhouse and scotch fillet steak are a must! Thanks heaps Takumi team!!! More

We all enjoyed our meals, and the staff were very friendly. It would be great if you could make amendments to your booking via OpenTable too if you book online, and I’d recommend getting the pre-order process online too as that was a bit of a hassle, especially with a group.

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

The concept was excellent as was the interaction with the head chef who prepared the food in fron of us. The food was spectacular with a heavy emhasis on seafood that night. The matching wine and/or sake was excellent (just misisng a big red). The seating was a bit of fun with some interaction with other guests. More

I got a gift voucher from some friends to come here and I was blown away by the ambience and decor for such a small restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the food was great. Me and my boyfriend spent $1 over the gift voucher amount which we were ready to pay for, but the very nice man (i think he might of been the manager) said it was okay and that $1 would be on them. I food was great, I wouldn't say amazing but what was amazing was the staff. More
