    We have been to Transformer when they were in the old building all the time now they moved to the much casual next door restaurant which not look like before at all . They cut off the menu and also drink.food wasn’t tasty and creative.

    Noise really didn't matter as with a deaf person. Light was almost an issue as deaf person is deafblind. But wait person added somerlight to make her life eating and seeing me signing easier. Food was great just would have liked one or two extra options... shooting up the prices. Thank you for the patience shown to us.

    We had the vegan banquet which included pretty much everything we wanted to order off the regular menu and every dish was amazing and unique. Courses were spaced comfortably apart, although we did ask if could wait ten minutes before having the desserts. Probably one of the best dining experiences we've had in Melbourne.

    Beautiful space, attentive staff, food was a tad bland. The nutritional yeast chickpea ‘snack’ was the highlight.

    Having dined several times at the previous Transformers restaurant we were expecting a similar or better experience on our first visit to their new Transformers Next Door venue. We are sad to say the new venue directly next door to The Vegie Bar on Brunswick Street was disappointing in terms of comparison to the ambience of the previous Rose Street address. The food was very good but being Valentine’s Day it was a set menu which only had limited Vegan options. We will return in future in hope previous variety of exceptional vegan choices returns to their new menu.

    Transformer was always my favourite restaurant and I'm not at all disappointed by the newly (re)opened Transformer Next Door. I would 100% recommend to any vegetarian looking for a date-worthy experience
