Have been here several times over the last few years for dinner with my family. Most recent visit was on a Friday night and fortunately we had booked as the restaurant was busy. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu and food are the highlight and we enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. Prices seem to have increased recently but... More

Returned to this restaurant after a couple months to find that the inimitable "host" is no longer there. BUT ... not to worry: not only is there no change in the kitchen, but the impossible has been achieved - the flavours seem even better!! It is no exaggeration to say that EVERY dish is SENSATIONAL. If there is a better... More

We try lots of different restaurants in the greater Melbourne area and this was a great find. It is ironic that we had owned a property about 300 meters from here yet had never visited before. We joined a group of friends recently for the special muscle night which is held every Tuesday night. At first I was a little... More

Finally got a booking to this popular local. It was worth the wait as the food is very good and the flexibility of the kitchen to be commended. Prices are fair and the menu is full of yummy dishes. My only negative is that the time between starters and mains was far too long, they need to think about this... More

I had passed this restaurant each day whilst travelling in the tram along Riversdale Road and decided to give it a go with my husband and we were not disappointed. We booked and glad we did as walk ins don't get the "welcoming" treatment on arrival. Clean, crisp decor, the proprietor is at the bar and welcoming the guests while... More

Have visited Charntra several times, right from when they just opened a few years ago to the present time. Food quality is consistently very good, but I sense the prices have increased quite a bit from the early days. I wonder if the good reviews they have received in The Age foodies reviews has encouraged the increases?

This is our local takeaway. Unlike many restaurants the take way options include nearly the whole menu. Quality is just the same as eating in ...very fresh, well spiced for our palate and reasonable serves. If you order early there is virtually no waiting ..the meal is there by the time you drive over. When you phone the order in... More

The food at Charntra is quite good, and being a local, it's in a convenient spot. However we found the Australian Owner was quite loud & chatted excessively, while we really just wanted to catch up with friends. Service is good, food is good but we'd probably just do take away in the future.

This is a nice little place that's good value for money. The ingredients are a highlight, and even if a little short of authentic, every dish tried so far has been tasty. I can highly recommend the Hor Mok Seafood. Plenty of fresh prawns in red curry coconut milk with fresh herbs. Also try the Massaman Beef, cooked in coconut... More
