Great meal for sharing with friends. Generous portions and great help from the wait staff although we were left unattended for long periods of time. Delicious cocktails!

Going out for dinner in the early stages of post-COVID reopening is an interesting time, the team at Double Rainbow were challenged by a fresh crop of staff who barely knew the ropes - but were trying their best. The seasoned old hands did an amazing job on a night that the tablets / printers were also misbehaving and the communication and swift rectifications of mistakes and oversights was outstanding. The food and wine were both excellent and greatly enjoyed by my party.

The crab laksa was disappointing. We expected more crab and had to split half a crab between us, it was more of a garnish. Not a great dish for sharing. If you order crab like this in Asian restaurants you get a whole lot more.

The lamb ribs were fine.
The chicken wings were ok (I thought they were larger, whole wings previously??)
The duck was delicious!

I'm missing the larger meat dishes on the menu - the lamb shoulder and pork.
Please bring them back!

Lack of service all night, had to send first dish back because it was still frozen and had long wait between dishes with all of them served warm which was concerning. I’ve heard other really good reviews so I’m hoping we just got a bad night.

We booked for 7pm, arrived on time, ordered straight away-2 hours later our mains finally arrived. Gave up on deserts and left. Good food but considering they only had 20 ppl there the chef must have been asleep. Wasn’t worth the wait after reading good reviews. Wait staff were polite and kept apologising but this place needs re-thinking if they think they are going to be able to cope when it’s busy.

Food and drinks were great. Service was pleasant but slow and probably needs more time to get back to “normal”.

I booked a table for 6people. We had some drinks of rooftop first and dinner downstairs (Wednesday evening).
We were all looked after well and food was great (you must try eggplant skewers :-)!). Thank you

Off the scale good.
Service was impeccable, food incredible and atmosphere brilliant. If you can get a spot at the counter, do it, it’s the best seat in the house. The bone marrow is a must as is the whole fish. Could go on and on about Double Rainbow but I’ll wait til next time.

Second time I’ve been to the Double Rainbow, I went back because the first time was fantastic. Service has been exemplary on both occasions, as has the food and the price. The main dishes are suitable for sharing, way too big for one person. I’ve tried the Edamame, Pork and Chive Dumplings, Squid in XO sauce, Marrow Bone, Market Fish, Slow Cooked Pork Leg, Fried Rice with salt cod, Fried Rice with Kimchi and Spicy Pork Mince. Highly recommend all these dishes. Can be a bit loud, so if you’re after a space you can engage in conversation without yelling, you may want to book early or late. Definitely book, this place is pretty popular.

We’ve loved our lunch and dining experiences. The vibe is friendly and trendy, the cocktails were nice and we loved that there’s a range of food which are delicious but also suitable for dietary requirements. Prices are quite reasonable and we would definitely come again!

I would recommend to a friend but I would note the noise level of the restaurant is not for everyone. I could imagine a table of a few guests would get hard to hear people talking. The service was wonderful and the food was great. There's so much to try so I'd love to return. Thanks!

We really enjoyed dinner here. The food was delicious (especially seared beef, greens and roti!) and service was very friendly. One of our dishes hadn’t arrived in time before we had to leave for a show, the waitress was very apologetic, cancelled the order and offered for us to come back after the show and have it for free. It was a shame that the kitchen was a little slow, but her response and service was excellent. Can’t wait to come back and try more of the menu!

Love Double Rainbow, the food is amazing but I’m pretty disappointed in having my wine served in a plastic stemless glass, especially when all other drinks are served in glass! But still would recommend Double Rainbow.

Great cocktails & a good variety of beverage choices. The food menu also caters to all tastes with a robust Asian theme (Thai, Korean, Classic Chinese to name a few). You'll find something for everyone however on this occasion when we dined, I think the chef may have been heavy handed with the salt & fish sauce which overpowered all the dishes. Overall a great new addition to the Northbridge scene.

Food good but overpriced for small portions
There are better Asian offerings in Northbridge
This is our second time here

* what annoyed me most and why won’t come back .... wine is Served in plastic stemless glasses and paying serious money like $22 for a glass of champagne to Not be poured at the table & in crappy picnic plastic is just insulting

Loved the venue , a great buzzy vibe . Would recommend high or bar seating for great views into the kitchen. Thought the food & menu was fabulous edgy Thai street style but a couple of my friends were thrown off by the chicken heart skewers !

Wait service tried their best but half of meal was forgotten. They however did a good job of attending to a young lady that fainted later so all is forgiven ...but
Noisy so noisy because of show upstairs and kitchen ventilation fail...
Smoked out ...we left ASAP.
Probably won’t be back
