The food was very delicious and the service was great. The cocktails were out of this world and would go back for a drink at any time.

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.

Great food as we had the Feed Me meals with a sampling of lots of delicious dishes. Would highly recommend their food and the happy hour cocktails were just as good.

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.

Loved our meal and the overall experience.
Only issue was that it was difficult to read the menu as it was dark.

Bhang was an absolutely fantastic choice of venue to hold my 30th birthday dinner. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating when I needed to add a few last minute guests and also sorted those out with dietary requirements. The food was delicious, we had the "Feed Me" banquet. Each course came out at the right time with just enough space in between. Charcoal meats were a highlight for me.

Highly recommend Bhang to everyone!

Some tables only vacated at 8.30pm when customers were waiting for their booking at 8pm. This caused chaos with people waiting around. Some of the waiting staff were unhelpful.

The food is always very good at Bhang. However, it seems there's a 'get them in and out' regime in place now. So we were expected to order quickly and then food comes straight away, with virtually no break between courses. Glasses and dished whisked away at breakneck speed. No invitation for other drinks after we had finished our meals. No long, languorous dining for us...Upstairs has no acoustic treatment whatsoever - we couldn't really hear ourselves at all.

We opted for the 'Feed Me' as everything on the menu looked amazing and we couldn't choose

Service was great, drinks arrived quickly (martini and Aperol spritz)

We started with delicious lamb samosas, grilled cheese, chicken wings, bread and raita. All gorgeous

Main was a chicken curry and a pork curry, both super tasty and with lovely bread and sides

Dessert was a petite but perfect gulab jaman. A fine end to a fine meal
