The food was very tasty, the cocktails were delicious. As we had a non alcoholic drinker, the mineral water on tap was/is a great idea.
The service of the staff to our table was brilliant.
Happy customers.

Fabulous meal and attentive friendly service. Absolutely delicious. My favourite dish was Whole snapper with Tom Yum salad. The only downside was the extremely high noise level which made conversation difficult.

Table was a little dark and seemed like more of a walk in position opposed to a pre booked table in a better area. But overall LOVED IT and will be a regular from now on! Love love love the whole design and the food.

Very tasty Modern Australian take on SE Asian, not afraid to stay true to the authentic flavours. Great for sharing, we had 5 adults and 2 kids, lots of large and small share plates. Service was excellent and the team were very accommodating when we wanted to move in from the hot veranda. Also they accommodated a last minute rescheduling. No problem with kids(we needed 1 high chair) Overall a lovely experience for small group and good value with a few bottles of wine! Nice work! We will be back

Had a fun dinner out here with friends. The chicken ribs and the soft shell crab were great, beware of mistaking the green chilli as a bean, Yeow, but still delicious. The pumpkin & chive cake was the least interesting dish we tried, for veg, the yellow curry roasted cauliflower and the papaya kohlrabi slaw were really good. The Graperol spritz for happy hour was a hit, very refreshing! Not huge sharing dishes so I wouldn’t bring teenage boys here or you would be spending a mint or stopping at Macca’s on the way home, but definitely a good spot for a group of women friends

Great little spot . Yummy food and friendly staff.
I eat all food but we had a vegetarian at the table so ordered a mix of both meat and vegetarian dishes. I would highly recommend trying some of the meat free dishes as well. They were outstanding.
Really chilled vibe, nice for an after work dinner or weekend meal.
Went on Sunday and back again on the Wednesday :)

It was our second visit to Bang Bang having moved into Elsternwick. Both times the food and place have been excellent.
Loved the fusion approach and freshness of the food. We took advantage of happy hour which is a great offering.
The first time we went was a Tuesday curry night and also terrific.

Our fourth time here and the food as always was spot on. Great sharing menu with excellent flavours. Today was special though for the knowledge and humour of our F&B server, Lola! Great food and wine suggestions, very efficient service, but most importantly lots of easy, casual laughs. Thanks Lola, we will be back to see you soon.

I have been going to Bang Bang for many years, but this last time, I was most disappointed with the food. The Lamb ribs dish was absolutely inferior, the salads were rather limp. The fish portions were limiting.
Overall a sad experience

Always a great experience to have a meal at Bang Bang! We go whenever we’ve got a catch up with friends and family in the area. There’s enough regular favourites, but usually a few new treats as well.
Staff are friendly and also very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine list.

Our second visit to bang bang and enjoyed it again
A lot louder thus time but it was the Friday night before Xmas and there was a private noisy function going on st the same time
Food is fabulous but I don't like the 2 hour table rules which are OK if you are after a quick meal but not so good when celebrating with friends

Food was amazing, service was spectacular and happy hour drinks to begin with were fabulous!
would definitely come here again. Great early evening when the sun was still shining on our table making it feel like Summer in November.
Our group of six all loved the food, especially the kingfish sashimi and the duck.
