Sitting proudly in the heart of Elsternwick is this unique venue with an Indochine inspired menu of delicious food and drinks.

The exotic greenery and styling seen throughout Bang Bang’s gorgeous indoor spaces flows out to a relaxed outdoor courtyard sitting adjacent to the local park.

Despite the venue’s bustling city vibe, Bang Bang is a laid-back social hotspot for locals in the South East.

Smaller menu but still retains their signature dishes. It was curry night when we dined, which was good value and well sized portions.

The food was so moorish! And the service was brilliant. Our waitress was friendly and so helpful. We had such a lovely night out there. Highly recommend and great for Coeliacs as lots of gf dishes plus a good understanding of the importance of completely gf for a coeliac.

there were 4 of us and the other 2 chose better, they had a tofu dish and chicken drumsticks. That was a nice supper. We had chicken scratchings and something on a leaf - not good.

We sat outside and had to order using our phones from the table. This is great when you're 2 couples and want to pay separately but dining as a family this was a bit of a pain. Food was ok, good flavours but very average quality meat. Our sons were ok but both myself and my husband were not very well afterwards and as we shared our dishes it must have been something we ate there. Not very happy at all. Definitely will not be going back or recommending to friends!

Great for social events and grabbing a drink but the food was very average and overpriced. Waited over an hour for meals to be served, even though all tables around us that were seated after us had finished mains and began paying and leaving before our mains were served??? Wouldn’t go back in a hurry...

We had the feed us menu option and despite having 2 people who had many food allergies but meals that we had were all wonderful. Where food courses had allergy issues they were either altered so all could enjoy or a substitute was given the the people with the allergies.
Staff were friendly and attentive to our requirements throughout the whole night.
Highly recommend it.
