I've been here during the day and night but it is a solid winner for thai food in Melbourne. Upstairs bar is not bad for a drink either

Enjoyed the casual atmosphere of Cookie and the food was from the top draw. The coconut yellow curry with pork and egg was particularly tasty. Great selection of tap beers.

I liked the atmosphere, and was happy to find evidence of a growing craft beer scene in Australia, but thought it was a little over the top in pricing and inconsistent in service. I was in for a late lunch, and he first server who helped me kind of forgot about me after I asked for a few more minutes... More

After a recommendation from a friend we visited Cookie on our first night in Melbourne. It was spectacular!! The drinks, food, atmosphere & the Hipster staff made for a truly great evening. It's a must in Melbourne.

Wow! What can I say.. Well for starters their Wine list is beyond extensive! Cocktail list that covers most I've ever heard of! Plus extensive Liquors... Mmm For the food.... Well, on the smaller side (and they do class them into small, med, lge categories, but most boys wouldn't be happy with the lge). The food we had, fish, scallops,... More

There were so many choices on the menu, both food and drinks! The service was great and the food was delicious. The cocktails were tasty, refreshing and they did not skimp on ingredients. I would highly recommend sharing food so you can have a bit of everything. My amaretto sour was perfect! It cost about $80-$120 each depending on how... More

I genuinely like Cookie, its a great place, good food, good staff and good drinks. Tonight all of that fell off a cliff as I sat at a table having drinks watching 3 cockroaches scurrying across the wall. The best the barman could do was to move us to another table and left the little guys to scurry. I won't... More

We were told about this bar restaurant by friends.We would never have known or been able to find it without prior knowledge. It is up several flights of stairs or take the lift but the stairs are recommended because it is part of the experience. At street level it is a plain doorway to a building that was in the... More
