Good food, busy place!

Had high expectations from reviews and reputation in Melbourne. Was slightly disappointed with the atmosphere. It's very busy and quite loud. Food was very good. We shared the Thai sausage starter. It was amazing! Main courses were very good, I had the pork belly. It was delicious, full of... read more

Came for dinner on a weeknight in July. The place was absolutely packed. We managed to score a nice table which was tucked behind a corner. It's pretty loud, so this was nice as we could hold a decent conversation. Food was...good but nothing special. Service was good. It took a while for drinks to arrive at the table. Wasn't... More

Visited here on a night out whilst in Melbs. People say it's loud, I say it's unique. Three (maybe four) stories of different venues, what's not to like! We scored a free booth so maybe that is why we had no complaints? It's a great place for a prequel to a night out on the town. You can even just... More

Vibe was great at entry and friends and I were excited to be here after several rave reviews about the place. Unfortunately the bar staff were surprisingly rude to my friends and I. We needed a moment to decide on our drinks seeing that it was our first visit, but we never asked for any attention or service, so it... More

This restaurant, that focuses on Thai food, is located on the 2nd floor of an old building. The archeticture and atmosphere is very interesting. It is a very noisy place, due to its hard walls and high ceilings. We ate on the bar side, since we didn't have reservations. There you are seated by the wait staff and given menus.... More

The restaurant name is interesting as it does not sell cookies, but the food is good. Friends wanted to come here for lunch and we ensured we booked first and glad we did as it was full. We looked at their website first so we knew what we wanted to order to save time (as it was a work lunchtime... More

Busy, noisy, almost chaotic... But it is all positive because it is awesome! Beer list is amazing, food is even better. Don't go there if you want a quiet and romantic dinner, but weather with your better half or a group of friends, you owe it to ourself to experience this many times 😄

This is the sort of reason why people move to Melbourne right? Fun, quirky, great food, spectacular wine list, groovy but friendly staff - did I mention quirky? And being hard to find is part of the fun really. This is the second time my Melbourne colleagues have brought me here. I may insist on coming here EVERY time!

Cookie seems to be an incredibly popular and well liked place by locals and tourists and I am sure the numbers can't be too wrong. I just didnt love it without being able to find a specific fault as such. The place was quite busy while we were there but the food came out quickly, the menu is pretty extensive... More
