Great food. Maybe not the best value for money, but when you add in the service and the fact that the chef was happy to make as many dishes as possible for me vegetarian, then I think it was worth the visit.

Amazing food. Delicious. Great presentation in a cool bar with a brilliant atmosphere. Good cocktails. $55 for two people was excellent value. Will definitely be back on my next trip to Melbourne.

Rice Paper Scissors is a decent place. However the value is not there for me. The flavors were comparable to places that are in Chinatown. It is good and filling but you are paying more for the atmosphere. I value food and flavor above atmosphere.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. They opened the kitchen earlier so that we could eat before seeing a show and we finished in plenty of time. Only a small place and doesn't take bookings. The service was the best I've experienced for a long time.

What a great restaurant. Food was fresh, vibrant and a lot of fun. Be prepared for quite a wait, but we went to the bar next door and was seated within half an hour. Can't recommend it highly enough ... hope to go back soon!
