Portions were so generous and the food was so good. I love that I could order from the lunch menu even at 10:30 AM ! It made my day.

Amazing food and coffee, the only downside was that the coffee service was a little slow due to how busy they were.

What a disappointment. This has dropped from my "go to" restaurant to a "need to" basis. I have been mostly for lunch and dinner this time is was for brunch, I only ordered sides as I didn't want bread and they brought me them piled on top of each other on a tiny plate and most of it was cold. No a breakfast dining spot but love their Asian offer.

This is a constant favorite of my entire family. I love the asian inspired offer on the menu as well. Food is consistently great, service is wonderful and it's a lively buzzing atmosphere.

The food was lovely and fresh, big servings. Coffee was fantastic! We sat outside with the heaters on (April) and the streetscape was lovely to be apart of. My only issue was there were heaps of wasps (not bees) flying around the tables, and one in particular that would just not leave my food alone, and proceeded to sit on my food and eat it. I couldn't stay and finish my meal. I mentioned it to the waitress and she said "yeah we get heaps out there every day." I don't know if there is much you can do to deter wasps around the eating area, but they were not flying around the next cafe 10 meters away. I certainly would return because the food was great, but perhaps move inside when the wasps become a problem

Great vibe for breakfast on a Saturday morning, lots of seats and tables with umbrellas outside. Food was delicious I had eggs benedict and great coffee. Only criticism is due to the amount of seating the service was a bit slow, but if you want to have a leisurely breakfast it is perfect

Food was great, though one meal (out of 3) was very late being served - to which we had almost finished our meals by time it had arrived. Had to ask for an update as to how long it was going to be & when served the waitress didn’t even say a word (just placed down & walked off)
Communication was poor in this aspect and no apology.
Other than that, our lunch experience was lovely and the food is always amazing and we love the wide variety of the menu!

My sister and I had breakfast here, we came super hungry and ready to eat! Unfortunately our meals were disappointing. They were cold, which made the toast really tough and the potato Rosti was very thick and was under cooked! Unfortunately the food was a let down. Upside is it’s great atmosphere and good outdoor seating 🙂

As always a great meal at this iconic institution in Albert Park, love the fact that it goes Asian for evening meals. This time brought Duke our Great Dane along and he had fun getting attention from the staff and customers alike.

On a lovely day, sitting outside under the well placed umbrellas is such a lovely atmosphere just eating and watching the world go by.

The taste and presentation of the food was up to the usual standard. The food also had very good value and was delivered very quickly.
I expected a bit more social distancing.
The noise level is very high which amazed me as you have acoustic tiles on the ceiling

There were 4 adults and 2 children for this reservation. As it was at 11:30 we could also choose from the wok menu (which I highly recommend) the Beef Salad was amazing as were the sates' my partner has a steak sandwich which came with sweet potato fries and his was huge and delicious. I had the ricotta hot cake which I must say was a bit heavy, I had ordered the hokkien noodles but changed my mind at the last minute and regretted it. The coffee is good and if you want a frozen Pina Colada they are on tap. Overall 5/5 as I have rated each time I have been. I especially like their dinner menu which is fully asian inspired and the duck pancakes are to die for.

Always love going there at night - it's asian inspired theme has great options with good quality and fabulous staff. Their Duck Pancakes are fantastic as is their on tap frozen cocktails.
Been in the evening twice now and thought they couldn't do it as good as the first time, but it's consistent quality and great staff make you want to keep coming back.

First visit. Waited 50 mins for, what turned it to be, average food. They said they were short staffed but no mention of the wait when ordering which would have given an option to stay or leave. Won't be back.

Food quality was very substandard. I had a lamb fillet wrap. It was tasteless and I had to add a lot of salt.

My partner ordered a prawn linguine and it was equally tasteless. Very disappointing experience.

Coffee was good though.

Wow, never expected what I always thought was just a cafe to be so amazing for dinner. It is asian inspired for the evening. We had King Salmon in Banana leaf with curry and chicken stir fry. Both amazing.The staff are friendly they have alcoholic slushies on tap (yum) but unfortunately we were too full to have dessert but I will save a spot next time.
Book - don't hesitate, one of the nicest places I have been in Albert Park.

Fabulous food! We sat outside in a stunning day for a team Xmas lunch. All of the meals were spectacular and restaurant quality. There is a lot of variety as there is a lunch menu, and a wok menu. There is a small drinks list that is ample to match the food. The green curry barramundi is to die for. Great value for money and nice al fresco dining outside.
