Hidden treasure

Great atmosphere and ambience. Our group had pre-dinner drinks on the roof top bar (not part of Cookie can't remember name sorry) then headed down for a late dinner. Plenty of variety on menu and we really enjoyed our meals (we shared our plates) The Wine menu is outstanding, however very expensive.

Unless you know where this restaurant is i doubt if you would find it by cahnce. Despite this the place was haeving and buzzing with evening diners. The Thai food was very authentic but a lttle pricey ...city prices! The staff were attentive and helpful.

My daughter and I had lunch at Cookie on Mother's Day. I had been to this restaurant previously and really enjoyed the service and food. This time I felt the service was not up to par - the service staff appeared to be going through the motions. The food was quite nice but not as good as I remembered it... More

Three of us went to Cookie for a late lunch last Sunday. We stood patiently waiting for someone to notice us for quite some time until a staff member eventually showed us to a table, brought some water and glasses, and gave us the food and drinks menus. A lot of people were leaving and it wasn't overly crowded, but... More

From small groups, intimate groups, parties or solo, this place is welcoming to all. The food is amazing and the staff are excellent. They cater for all dietary needs and priced very reasonable.

An old favourite we have been going to Cookie for many years. Modern Asian food - great Drunken noodles and chili beef stir fry. I also love the pumpkin curry too!

Everyone I know who visits Melbourne I always recommend to drop into cookie and try their amaretto sour cocktail it's the best I have ever had...this is a fantastic venue to hang out with friends or have dinner with colleagues.

The food was simply superb,not to mention the massive drinks list,especially beer,the cured kingfish salad and the pepper pork sticks in betel leaves were just sublime.... More

Friendly staff helped with choice of food and prevented us from over ordering, as the menu looked so tempting. Drunken prawns were tasty, and I liked the subtle taste of the mekong whisky. Peppered pork skewers in betel leaves was a novelty for me, yet with the soft pork and crispy leaves, together with what I would call a proper... More

Went here for dinner. Huge menu! But with a little help from the friendly staff, discovered what was their most popular dishes, ordered them and very pleased with the result. Not too expensive.
