It was a pleasant surprise to get off Jetty Road and find there are some little gems tucked away in the side streets. I highly recommend the lamb shanks.

Very quiet restaurant and not much atmosphere. The kebab we ordered was very dry and only several small pieces with a huge portion of rice (filler food). Food very disappointing but service was great. Wont be going back!

Sunday lunch, the regular chef was away, but this is not a valid reason for overcooked meat and prawns and old ingedients for the overpriced salad. Shame, the online menu looked ok.

Had a lovely meal here. We were looking for a location that was something different and came across Viyan in our Entertainment Book. Very friendly staff and excellent meal. Gluten issues affect me and the menu has no identifying GF labels. Staff were happy to discuss and assist.
Will be going back again soon.

The food was lovely, staff friendly and attentive. I'd like to see a bigger choice in entree and dessert. Main courses were small serves but still good value.

My family and I visited the Viyan Restaurant recently and were very impressed by the food and their presentations. We loved all the dishes particularly the eggplant entree dish. The location is also commendable for offering sufficient parking spaces in side streets and being few minutes from the beach for a stroll before or after your dinner.

Welcoming glasses of bubbly on our arrival to celebrate our anniversary! Excellent service, highly helpful. Succulent, delicious food with great combinations of herbs. Good wine list including a favourite Geoff Hardy K1 Gruner Veltliner which is hard to find. Good balue overall, highly recommended.

So fantastic for a new restaurant to open in Glenelg. Food was authentic and extremely flavorsome, wine list extensive and very reasonably priced, the ambiance was lovely - noise was slightly loud at times but not in comparison with other restaurants. 10/10 would recommend - particularly for those wanting a quieter, more intimate and cozy dining experience. Very excited to watch and support this restaurant as it continues to establish itself.
