Food was great

Food was great, service was disappointing and so was the $13 corkage... We'll go back because the food was so good but hopefully better service next time.

Four friends ate here sat night 15 August and as two are vegetarians it seemed like a good choice. There are good vegetarian options but the duck special was average, the red beef curry was ok. The vegetarian gado gado was good as was the roti bread and the fish curry. Good but not amazing wait staff. It is very... More

5 of us went for a catch up dinner, never been to Chinta Ria before. The service was very lovely from the very beginning and the staff were fantastic. Very accomodating and made it all about us. We all enjoyed the food and service so much that we will definitely be coming back soon. My compliments to the floor staff... More

Dinner for two and this place did not disappoint. Generous serves and tasty dishes served quickly. Seafood Laksa was nice ( could have done with a little more heat) but the coconut filled pandanus crepes were "Da Bomb". Reasonably priced and very busy...

We enjoyed a nice meal in a window seat @ this popular restaurant in St Kilda recently. My Nasi Goreng & my partner's Curry Laska were excellent. They were served in a timely manner,after we had enjoyed some delicious Roti Bread to commence our meal. Service standards need improving,eg : a glass on a saucer to drink English Tea was... More

On busy Acland Street, this place never disappoints as the staff are friendly and efficient, food is great, there is good beer selection, and BYO is OK. If it gets a bit crowded and noisy inside, try outside on the street, even in winter as the heaters work well. And - for a wonderful valued lunch, go for the $12.50... More

Met up with friends for a catch up. The atmosphere was great, noise level allows for easy conversation, comfortable seats & attentive service. And the food is just great, delicious curries, noodles, with fabulous specials of duck & soft shell crab. Good wine list & very reasonable BYO corkage. We have been many times & have always enjoyed it.

This is a great restaurant, which we have been to many times. The service is always good, and the food comes out pretty quickly. Food is always hot (temperature) which is nice. The entrees are well priced and tasty, the mains are well priced also but maybe have gone down slightly in size. The tables are small and for four... More

A group of four we called in before a show .We were greeted warmly by a lady who I believe was the Manager shown to a table and given time to settle before asking if drinks were required and she also pointed out the special board. Orders were taken and drinks and meals were served promptly at no time did... More
