I should preface this review by saying I'm a regular diner at BAMBU - but typically I visit during the week for lunch (and sometimes even on a non-market day!!) The food is great - accessible asian with Thai/Korean/Chinese influences. Great selection of smaller dishes for sharing (and the kitchen can adapt the numbers to suit your party). The bao are fantastic (I love the friend chicken) and all the dumplings are spectacular. The barramundi curry is my favourite dish and I always order this. This time we also tried the coconut beef curry which was gorgeous - highly aromatic and spicy. I can't recommend the food enough. BUT, on this occasion, we went for Sunday lunch (I booked via OpenTable prior which is a new booking system for BAMBU). It was busy. Very busy. We had to wait five minutes for the diners to move off our table. The tables were wiped but we had no water (until we asked). There was no cutlery or chopsticks (until we asked). Our drinks took over 10 minutes to arrive. We ordered our food with some basic preference for how we'd like it brought out. This is not going to happen on a Sunday - it comes when it comes!! So I absolutely recommend BAMBU but if you go on a weekend, you need to tolerate some inconsistencies with service. I guess that's to be expected at any of the South Melbourne Market eateries though. I recommend lunch on Thursday when it's still bustly not panicked :) More

We had a wonderful time. The food was great, the service was friendly and the ambiance pleasant. It wasn't cheap - but we left feeling that we got a great experience that was well worth the price. More

Open table took my online reservation. They do not accept reservations for groups less than 10 people on weekends. Fortunately they still managed to find us a table. Kudos to the staff. More

A lot more authentic than the chain pancake places, Stokers was something I found on line when searching for a quiet place to enjoy really good pancakes and I was not disappointed. Very friendly service and absolutely delicious food! Such a good selection of the classics and a few new pancake combos too. Will definitely be back. More

Modern Australian | South Melbourne, Inner City

Here the table fills with steamed brown rice, creamy coleslaw with a surprise wasabi sting, and a pomegranate-punctuated medley of fried beans and bitter greens, all to service a mighty teriyaki short rib that gives up its hold on the bone without resistance. That's understandable. It's hard to put up a fight here when your lush Traviarti chardonnay from Beechworth, or a tight Clem Blanc field blend from Sinapius in Tasmania might come with a table lean and life talk – if the mood is right. It often is.More
