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.
Food was pretty good. Nothing amazing apart from the duck spring rolls. However we had a French waiter who was very rude and responded very angrily when she was informed there was an issue with a beer that was ordered. It is not the customers problem, nor should they be made to feel bad if they order a drink and there is an issue with it. Overall I wouldn’t go back and won’t be recommending the place to anyone.
Fantastic place - I’ll be back with more peeps to introduce!
This place catered for our unusual booking and did a wonderful job. The staff on the floor were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. It was a great place for our international visitors.
I had a fantastic night at Botherambo with a friend, the food was AMAZING and the service was undeniably phenomenal. Will definitely be going back again and again! Would recommend the cauliflower dish!
First time at Botherambo, great atmosphere followed by great food and drinks!!!! We will be back!
Fabulous food, friendly and helpful waitstaff. Great cocktail list and a very upbeat vibe. Can be a little noisy at times but if you’re heading out for the night it’s a great place to start
The food was really good and tasty. The portions however were a little small. It can get a bit noisy, but the service and staff were great.
We love coming to Botherambo, the food is always tasty and exciting . The service is excellent as we are usually going on to an event at Rod Laver or in the city and we have plenty of time to eat and have a drink. The staff always recommend dishes that suit all our needs and some with dietary restrictions are easily catered for. We will be back very soon.
LOVED IT. First of all the service was amazing, our waiter was so friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious too and they were able to cater to a number of dietaries.
FAV PLACE TO EAT IN MELB! Delicious food, excellent vibes, caring staff xx
Very, very slow service. 20 minutes without a drink. Main course took a long time. Not enough staff on. Staff working were so busy they avoided eye contact as they had too much to do. Was so hard to get anyone’s attention.
Always our first stop in Melbourne. Food and service was great as always.
Staff were fantastic, great menu and vibe. Would definitely recommend!
Service was very ordinary.....slow and the waitress didn’t know anything about the menu
We usually love Thai, but unfortunately, Botherambo seems to be trying too hard to put their spin on classic dishes. We had the Pow Pow chicken cups and are usually pretty good with spice, but these were SUPER spicy and the bitterness of the red lettuce cups totally spoilt these for us. The pad thai chicken dumplings sounded great, but just weren't. More like a bland chicken ravioli. The pulled beef cheek bao were the best of the bunch, but the black buns were just not necessary. And unfortunately to top it all off, we were left hanging for ages after we'd been seated. A real shame. Botherambo has had a terrific fit out and the ambience is great. Just needs a little fine tuning in the details.
Food was great. Excellent cocktails - but slow to arrive. Service was a little indifferent. Overall good food with a nice vibe
A real neighbourhood gem. Nice and close to the MCG and AAMI Park. I highly recommend this restaurant for a quick bite to eat before, after or between games. The food was great and the service even better!
The food and cocktails were delicious, we really enjoyed the space as well.
Tasty food and great service.
Food was amazing! Great for sharing or large groups. Small restaurant with limited seating, but the restaurant doesn’t feel too cramped or loud. Great cocktails and a full bar.
I would recommend sharing. My and my friend shared the special Chili prawns, the cauliflower (the sauce was amazing) the portabello boa, yumm! And the chinese broccoli.
This actually was a perfect amount. The cauliflower is not a small portion - which was great for us. Really good vegetarian food which suited me perfectly.
Thank you, hope to see you again.
Probably wouldn’t return. Didn’t feel the greatest afterward. Ordered a few curries and all were very watery.
Great place to meet for dinner or drinks before the footy at The G. Loved the atmosphere and the food!
We’ve had many family dinners there at always walked out feeling very happy. Wonderful range of food and so tasty. Great service and such a vibrant ambience. Love the place.
Very friendly service despite being a busy Saturday night. (We ended up with a more comfortable than we had booked.) Tasty food - just enough vegetarian options - and small but very good wine list. We'll be back.
Great spot for a catch up with friends. Wonderful food and great wines by the glass. Particularly good prior to the footy, concerts, etc. It’s a very short walk to all the MCG, Rod Laver Arena etc
Great service, food, drinks and atmosphere. Helpful and fun staff, from start to finish everything was great will definitely be back
Super delicious Thai food enjoyed in great company. I definitely would return.
Pork belly bao was to die for! Drinks were tasty and the chicken ribs were also very tasty.
Had dinner here for my bday dinner - loved it! Food was amazing - Thank you we will be back 😋
Could have done with another main when doing the banquet.
Staff were amazing! So welcoming and friendly. Thanks for a fun night ✌🏼
Good restaurant, I would love to go there again. Green vegetable curry with coconut rice was my favourite. Dumplings were a bit solid though. Pork Betal leaves had a beautiful flavour. Good wine list.
Good and service were both excellent. I would definitely go there again and recoomend
A funky looking Asian inspired restaurant on Swan Street. Dishes are packed with flavour and spice. Servings are average in size, so your best to over order than under order.
The wine selection is good. Reccommend this venue for a large group of people for a fun day/night.
Overall a fun night... though I was expecting maybe a little more from the food.
Fantastic waiter very helpful food drink and service excellent highly recommended
Scrumptious fresh food, best meal out in months. And really attentive service, with kind staff. My friend spilt his cocktail, and a replacement was brought to the table without fuss or mention. Thanks guys. I look forward to returning!
The restaurant was nice and cool on a hot Melbourne evening.
The Service, while a little slow to start, was then excellent with all orders delivered in a very efficient manner by friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The food is excellent and we could not fault any of the shared dishes we ordered.
I would highly recommend!
My goodness we had gorgeous staff. Great warmth and senses of humour; food was fantastic and wine list was great, too. Great vibe and interiors. Only possible negative were the high tables: accompanying seats had no back to them, and ledge too high for the majority of us!
