Korean Japanese fusion BBQ restaurant. The main aim of the menu is to share among your table. Dishes to start are small, but easy to share. Mains are cooked in our pit ovens, and can be split between 2 - 3 people. Rice & Noodles are to add on to your mains to bulk your meal out, while the greens are needed to add contrast to your proteins. Desserts finish of with a refreshing sweet or citrus flavour. You may also opt for our Feed Me Menu - banquet style based on your group's size and appetite!

This is my third visit to Kong and I find that this restaurant is exceptional.

All three times it’s been as after work business meals and myself and colleagues have been impressed with the service and most importantly the food.

At our first visit, we took the waiters recommendation to do the “feed me” option on the menu and allow the chef to decide our meal....this is the only way to do it. You get a chance to try a variety of dishes.

All three times that I’ve dined here, I’ve gone with the “feed me” option and have not been disappointed (even a very fussy colleague on this last visit was impressed at the variety).

Strongly recommend this restaurant

Food was reasonably good, but the service was pretty poor (several things we ordered were forgotten until we reminded the waitress). Temperature inside the restaurant was quite cold.

Food was great and staff were helpful. We had a big group and they helped us work out the exact amount of food to order.
We had to move our booking earlier at last minute and they accomodated us happily.
Food was quick and overall a great experience.

Would definitely go back again.

The acoustics aren't great though-hard to speak to people further than 1-2 people away on a big table, you can only really speak to the people next to you.

My gal pal and I had the Valentine's Day Kong BBQ Banquet for 2.
We received a glass of Prosecco which was delish, this was accompanied by 8 outstanding courses.
I would have liked to describe each dish individually but I only have 500 characters.
The highlight for us was definitely the Korean Fried Wings with Honey, garlic and sesame, absolutely delicious! Also 2 other stand-outs, the Fried Rice with enoki mushroom and soy-charred tofu and the Japanese Cabbage Slaw. 10/10 thanks Kong!

Kong is one of my favourite restaurants. I love modern Asian fusion and Kong is up there with the best of them all. It doesn't matter what you order - everything is delicious and cooked perfectly! The staff are also always very friendly and helpful. It's also good value for money.

Kong is one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne. The food is always amazing - have never had a dish that I did not like. Everything is so full of flavour and leaves you wanting more. Great vibe to this restaurant, and is a definite must visit for your next dining venture!!

The experience was spectacular at Kong,I had organised a reservation for 12 for lunch, so queit a large group. The set out of the table and the room we had was very spacious and set up well. The service from the staff who looked after our table need a pat on the back, they were excellent.
Majority of the people on the table have never heard or seen this type of food before, kong just took every single one of them to another level.
Family and friends still cannot believe how good it was.

I always love going to Kong, its trendy and delicious with heaps of flavoursome options. I also arranged with Sarah to bring out a dessert with a candle for my friend and they catered to that need with flying colours.
