One of the joys of travel is finding treasures like this. Love the little laneways and alley ways of Melbourne but never been to Liverpool Street before. This was amazing - only small dishes but each one was special - great flavour and spice character - hard to pick a favourite but the pork shoulder was special. Excellent service and... More

I have found my favourite of all time restaurant in Melbourne. Not only was the food absolutely amazing.. Every dish was totally different but absolutely delicious and tantalising to the tastebuds. We went after the theatre so one could have expected a bit of winding down by the staff. This was not the case. They were a great asset to... More

Each dish was an individual taste sensation. Great staff, and gluten free requirements catered for. Will be back.

A well deserved 4/5 stars for RPS! Almost a five but not quite. It's deserves a visit just for its cute name. As I knew this place is popular I went just after 6pm on a gloomy Monday. No one goes out on a Monday right? Especially when it's raining. Wrong! Any time is good to enjoy RPS. When I... More

This place has such a nice vibe and great staff. Tapas type morsels which are bursting with flavours. Loved the Mar Hor as a starter moist and full of flavours, the duck was good too. We opted for the 55.00 shared menu which is very reasonable in price and a bottle of wine, and felt we hade enough to eat.... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant. They have a great waiting list system (due to them not taking any bookings) whereby on arrival they take down your name and number, provide an approximate waiting time then text you when your table is ready. This is really great as it means you can continue wandering the city or duck out and... More

I had the pleasure of sharing five amazing dishes with a group of friends on a Friday night at Rice Paper Scissors, and will definitely be back. From their unique take on duck pancakes to the melt-in-your-mouth Asian-style ribs, every single dish we had was vibrant and delicious. Despite there being quite a in few of us in our group... More

Consistently superb food and service and great value for money. This restaurant deserves to be well rated. We had the 5 dishes deal for 3 of us and couldn't fault it. They were all so good, we couldn't choose between us which we preferred between the prawns, the beef or the pork - with the chicken and duck also in... More

Funky restaurant in a lane way easy to miss off Bourke St. Service and food excellent. Need to eat early to be sure to get a seat, would be great for pre or post theatre as it is just one block from Spring St.
