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.

We sat in the bar area on a high table. The music was very loud you couldn’t hear each other. The food is amazing. Ask to sit in the back restaurant.

$59 each for shared food during covid19 and if there is only two people you miss out on the main dish because it's too much food for two.
Not worth it at all.
Wouldn't go back!

For the first night with the current covid restrictions the staff handled everything with aplomb. The food was superb, a perfect amount.
Staff attentive and service timely.
The only criticism was the loud music.
I hope that Bang Bang survives well into the future, they deserve it

We had a fantastic experience at Bang Bang for my sons 21st birthday. all the food was delicious and we had a great view over the streets of Elsternwick. Cool vibe. Online booking was super easy and our service staff were excellent, very knowledgeable about the food and service options. I was very appreciative on the flexibility in the banquet for some fussier eaters in our party. 10/10 Bang Bang!!

Absolutely fantastic experience - I can understand now why you have to book so far in advance to get a table!! The food was DIVINE and even tho I was stuffed full of it, I was still getting FOMO looking at the food on other tables. The service was superb - all in all, a wonderful dining experience.

Lively welcoming place that came recommended by quite a few friends and didn’t disappoint. Entrees arrived swiftly which was great with a table filled with young adults who are always hungry. Absolutely delicious chicken drumsticks and squid and a spring roll kept the vegan very happy. Mains were all superb and we all enjoyed the desserts. We will return!

General service by wait staff was very friendly and attentive.
Happy hour drinks were good but the limit of two was a little mean. Three drinks would be a good compromise.
We shared the three curry dishes which were very good, well seasoned & spiced. We were let down by the starters which were the chicken drumettes and salt and pepper squid, which we've enjoyed before, but were very oily/greasy and not up to standard.
The noise factor made it a little difficult to converse, but the atmosphere was, as always, a buzz.

We had a great time. Food was great but a shame both our main meals were not available and we were offered a complimentary desert which was much appreciated. Being a strict celiac due to health issues ‘GF’ on the menu would be very helpful.

Hi Clare, Thanks for joining us and I'm so sorry neither of your first options were available - great point also about noting dietaries. I hope your waiter assisted you in finding the right dishes and you enjoyed them! We look forward to welcoming you again. Best regards, Ilana
