After winning all our hearts during his stint on Masterchef, Khanh Ong has found a new home at The George (& we’re a little bit excited). As a partner in the business and host with the most, he’s excited to work alongside head chef Quim Hernandez to bring fresh menus and ideas to the venue, making it a place where people come together to enjoy the best things in life: great food, drinks, company, music, laughter and service.



From millionaire eggplant to Mum’s pork belly, you’ll be spoiled for choice with Khanh’s new lunch and dinner menu – it’s all fresh, fragrant and packed with authentic Vietnamese flavours. Perfect for an after-work bite, catch up with mates or family dins (without the cooking OR washing up).



Located in the heart of Melbourne's CBD on the Paris end of Collins St, The George on Collins is a popular destination for any occasion.

Great place for drinks.

Restaurant this time was a little disappointing:
Drinks came out at different times - had to ask where one drink was as a bit of time had passed.
Food was nice but have had better Vietnamese style food elsewhere
The previous menu was much nicer

I was very much looking forward to our reservation at the George. A beautiful mood on arrival, Hecker Guthrie have done a magnificent job of the interiors and this is where the buble burst. Our waiter of three weeks couldn’t suggest any “must have” dishes, thankfully on our request he sent a lovely lady who had knowledge of the menu. 80% of our dishes ordered were either over sauced, over cooked or served too quickly and out of order. Unfortunately with all the beautiful food choices in Melbourne we shall not be returning.

Disappointed with food. Wine was sent back having definitely been sat on a bench open a few days / week! Sticky date pudding horrible, took one bite & left it. Disappointing as I took my friend there for his birthday & it was expensive!

Food was... ok. Flavors were true to traditional and were enjoyable but I wouldn't be giving a raving recommendation to my friends as a must try. Highlight the sticky chicken wings they were very tasty. Beef dish and chicken coldslaw was underwhelming. Service and ambiance is great. Need a more exciting tasting menu a little hit and miss.

I loved the food and I got a booth, which was excellent. The staff were extremely busy so I did need to find someone to order the second round of drinks. Very noisy with high levels of background music, an occupational hazard for the staff I feel.

The new menu was absolutely amazing - we were fighting over the last slice of kingfish!
The restaurant itself seemed more bustling than usual so had a great vibe. The wine list was also quite big with a nice selection at a good price point. We will definitely be back!

Everything was wonderful - from first walking in, the atmosphere was lovely and energetic. The staff were great and we were shown to our table immediately. We did the Little Hanoi menu for two and it was to die for! Incredible value and a wonderful way to sample 6 different dishes. Will definitely be coming back!

Very disappointed with the tasteless food! The staff were friendly and nice but we think that the chef needs to spice the dishes! No flavour, very dry fish curry and lamb! Not even the normal seasoning, salt & pepper!
I guess this place is good for a drink after work. I definitely will not dine there again!

We had 1hr to order, eat and run off to a comedy show. Our waitress offered to order for 4 of us- a selection off the menu that would satisfy and have us out on time. The cocktails were delicious and the food was mouth watering. We were very please with our experience. I’ll be back ! Thank you so much

We booked here for a quick dinner before a show and were not disappointed! The service was both prompt and friendly.
Our waiter was helpful with suggestions, our sharing plates were delicious, but a little small-we did order more after our initial selection, but it still was served quickly.
We would absolutely eat here again, and look forward to trying the main meals.

Was really excited to try the food at The George and the entrees were delicious so was looking forward to the main that we ordered which was the pork belly however it was an absolute flop. Both myself and my friend were so disappointed with it. Perhaps our expectations were too high but out meal took a nose dive and we weren't impressed.
The venue and atmosphere itself were great along with the yummy cocktails.

There were two of us for lunch and we were happy to have the feed me option. Because we only went vego, we were given a good deal on the food. Everything was delicious, a good amount of food for lunch and sitting in a booth meant we could easily chat and have a glass of wine.
