We usualy enjoy ordering Old monk beef ribs but this time the beef ribs were not quite up to the mark in terms of flavour and the choice of piece provided as it majorly had the fat portion instead of meat.
We also ordered Paneer which was totally not up to the mark in terms of flavour and taste.
Chicken curry was good but the pieces were kinda Shredded a lot which you miht not expect in a gravy..

Always have a good time at Bhang!! Legit me and my friend’s fav dinner place. Food is mouthwatering (i dream of the chicken tikka) and cocktails to match! Staff are friendly and food always comes out in a good time. Also, like 90% of menu is gluten-free!!

We had couple of items from the menu and overall it was 7.5/10.
To begin with spinach fritters they were really delicious, crispy and fresh. The mains goat curry/ junglee maas was 7/10, it was fresh but it could be a bit more spicier from my standards but the local diners would love it. Lastly, the garlic naans were fresh and tasty. Ambience and service is amazing, the staff knows the food and help in understanding of Indian cuisine.

Bhang was a great experience for our date night, the place is beautiful and intimate with amazing decoration. We didn't come for the cocktail, although the food was moderately tasty but generous portion. The service was ok, we were served by the bartender as the main FOH staff were busy made a long conversation with one table only, hence we didn't get a thorough explanation on the menu and question about spiciness level that other tables had. Therefore, we didn't get enough spiciness we desired from our food because we didn't know that the spiciness level can be adjusted. We only heard it from the FOH staff when he served a new table and thoroughly explain everything (that we didn't get the same treatment).

Exceptional food. Great service and ambience. My only gripe is that I booked and requested for upstairs which was confirmed, however on the night the waiter wasn't accommodating or sympathetic to this request. Not a good start however the food and service more then made up for it. Great cocktails too!

Everything was great only minus was GF naan could be improved! It’s a bit stiff and dry and cornbready not chewy & fluffy. Kudos to them still for offering tho! And love how 90% of menu is GF.
Chicken tikka and the stuffed eggplant and my Peena Colada and my friend’s Kerala Krush were delicious! Drooling

The guy staff there, not at all friendly, felt like was just was made to work there on a casual role and wasn't given too many shifts or was not given a weekend or probably just arrogant.

One of my first meals as Melbourne opens up from Covid. Bhang followed all protocols and I felt taken care of and safe with the social distancing. Food is fabulous as usual. We will be back.

Absolutely one our favourite places to go with friends for dinner. The food is always delicious along with tasty cocktails.
Price for a night out will normally run us $60-65 per person for an entree, dinner, dessert and a nice drink so it's very well priced.

Our experience was exceptional, the food was excellent, we eat a lot of curries and these would have to be right up there. They were mild and extremely flavoursome. Vegetarian samosa's, seafood curry, vegetable curry and lamb shank. Great value.

The food is touted as Indian but a key bit to good Indian food is a good blend of spices and Bhang’s food completely misses the mark by a mile
The food is too mild and not what I’d expected it to be

Won’t be back again. Sorry

The seats (bench seats) are a little too high for the tables making it awkward to sit comfortably. This was the first time we sat there, we usually sit upstairs.
The food was nice but lacked the wow factor of previous visits and the person waiting on our table was slow, disinterested and ill informed about the menu. Not sure if we'll be back.
