About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Botherambo, opened in 2014 with the idea to bring something fresh and new to a pub focused landscape that richmond was offering

The concept of A SOUTH EAST ASIAN restaurant and BAR was chosen and is now KNOWN FOR ITS BUZZING DINING ROOM, LEAFY COURTYARD, MOUTHWATERING COCKTAILS, NATURAL WINE AND VERSATILE EVENTS SPACEs. It was something that Richmond had never seen making it busy from day 1,

Our prime location puts us within walking distance to the MCG, Rod Laver Arena and more. Next door is the famous corner hotel bringing plenty of events to the area.

Excellent - given the circumstances; friendly and attentive wait staff despite their worries, and terrific fusion food, somewhat spicy but great if you like that style as we did.

Three of us dined at Botherambo for the second time, however we were disappointed to see that close to half the dishes shown online had been removed from the menu. According to staff the menu had changed during the week but hasn't been updated as yet on the website. This needs to be rectified as soon as possible. Specifically noticeable was the removal of several Vegan choices, leaving only a couple on the menu. Also on the night a few items were unavailable on the new current shortened menu. We ordered the Pomelo salad which was very tasty, prawn friend rice, a bit bland, vegetable curry, which was delicious, steamed rice, satay chicken, no satay sauce to speak of and roti with satay sauce, which was good. The cocktails were delicious. Ambience good and excellent service.

The food was amazing but unfortunately the staff were very rude and not helpful. Despite having the restaurant almost to ourselves, the drinks service was slow and the order's were taken incorrectly several times. When we would alert the waitress to the incorrect order, we'd get a response of rolling her eyes and huffing. I'd come back for the food but if I saw this particular waitress working there, I'd turn back out the door.

The food is amazing, no complaints at all. We made a 5:30pm booking as we had a 8pm show at Rod Laver. Plenty of time, right? Wrong! We chose the feed me menu and the food can to a halt after the (plentiful) entrees. At 7pm, we asked where the main was and was told it was on its way..... We watched as tables seated after us got their mains...... When it finally arrived, the main was great, however we ran out of time for the dessert that was included. We received a $5pp discount in lieu of dessert. At no point were there any apologies for forgetting us. Overall great food, mediocre service.

Excellent as always. Botherambo is consistently good and this visit was no exception. Food, service, etc is outstanding. Just the music is too loud forcing patrons to get louder and louder in order to converse.

Tasty & trending and quiet over lunchtime. Service was good but wasn’t challenging over a quiet Thursday lunch. Good without being excellent. Would go back if around the area.

Service is friendly, attentive and accommodating. The food was excellent and the wine reasonably priced. A great place to catch up with friends for a drink or for a meal. This is the second time I have eaten at Botherambo and I have found the food and service consistently good.

The online booking system does not alert you straight up that bookings are for an hour and a half, this is not enough time to enjoy a meal and a chat with who ever you are dining with. If I had known it was such a short time I would not have booked, most restaurants allow 2 hours.
It was an unpleasant dining experience with the staff hurrying us along all the time, interupting our conversation. Will not go back and will not recommend.

Embarrassing experience when trying to dine overseas friends and impress them. Being told with 30min left on our seating that we won’t have enough time to order and eat a curry for the main as there was another booking coming earlier. Then have the waitress rudely wipe down the table and ask if she can get us the bill was horrible. Felt pushed to eat quickly and to get out ruined the experience of eating good food for everyone. We then left and went to kekou around the corner and had a fabulous experience. Won’t be going back to botherambo
