Enjoyed this enormously last Sunday at lunchtime. With only two of us, we stuck with entrees to try a variety of dishes. The staff were very courteous and explained the main two options, which are to let the waiter decide, or decide yourself. We opted for the latter and enjoyed some fantastic options. The prawn and Taro crispy rolls were... More

Breathtaking modern food. Everything that surrounds the food builds upon this excellence. Top staff, amazing wine, great space and vibe, quality furniture. It's not cheap, but I would pay more for this experience.

My father, brother and I ate at CODA yesterday. It was a Saturday lunch session and the place was packed. We ate oysters, zucchini fritters and calamari for entrees. We were impressed from the start. Also, their Spanish Beer was terrific. It should be noted that we attended CODA to celebrate a weekend away. We were in Melbourne to also... More

Book early, it's hard to get a table, and I know why. Food is so interesting, an Asian fusion, an explosion of flavours. We ordered small plates, and while the servings are small, the flavours are complex and to be savoured. Service attentive, Can't wait for my next visit

My daughter and I dropped in for lunch and as it was towards mid afternoon felt that the kitchen may be limited however to our pleasant surprise the full menu was available. Fantastic Moreton Bay Bugs Tempura followed by wickedly decadent dessert. Love the atmosphere and fantastic staff.

We went to Coda, after sitting on a waiting list with another restaurant on a Saturday and left with an hour to go. I was first off grateful to walk in and be seated straight away, this restaurant is small seating about 70 people at a time, but they managed to get a table turned around for us in about... More

First time at Coda after reading heaps of reviews. A venue that provides great tasting food without being pretentious. Awesome service. Only down side - the beer selection was a bit odd. Great night.

This gem is slightly off Flinders Lane and in a basement. It is smallish and only seats 70. We arrived at 6:30PM on a rainy Tuesday and it was packed. We ended up sitting at the bar with a ringside seat on the kitchen; highly entertaining. The menu is mostly small plates to share. I would recommend you take this... More
