4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

I went here one Monday night in July -- while the streets outside were deserted, Cookie was absolutely pumping! Now I know where Melburnites go at night. The table service was very efficient, and the food was brought out before we knew it. Highly recommend a visit, and book in advance (as even Monday nights are booked out).

Great to try out some new drink, what with the 10 tap beers on offer, as well as a choice of 85+ imported beers and an 80 page wine menu. A nice environment, cute decor and small but nice meals.

We have visited Cookie on three occasions now and every time the food has been standout. The staff are very knowledgeable on both the food and drinks menu. We were not sure what to choose from the extensive menu and on all occasions we have been able to tell the wait staff what things we like and they have recommended... More

The casual atmosphere does not detract from the quality of the meals served here, they are top rated. The menu has a huge selection of dishes to choose from and the waiters have a thorough understanding of ingredients used and food styles. We left our wine selection to our waiter and we were not disappointed with the choice. Meals are... More

Upstairs in a big room shared between the bar and the dining tables. Staff very professional; they know well their large beer and wine range ad well as the secrets of the menu and ingredients. Food was delicious and portions well served. Delicious street food menu with well researched and developped dishes. Down side: a bit pricy and tiny bit... More

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.
