A little gem!

My friends and I have been coming to Peko Peko for several years. The menu consists of a variety of Peko Boxes, soups, curries etc. The food has always been really tasty and the prices are low - especially considering the portion sizes! The staff are also really helpful and efficient. The... read more

A great casual place to have quick meal with family, friends, etc - good range of food and with five of us were able to try quite a number of their tasty dishes. All were good. We booked a table ahead and even for a Monday night this was a busy place. Service was good, efficient and friendly.Prices were reasonable... More

Not sure why this place is so packed and popular as the food is only average and what you pay for is not worth the price tag. A fancy Asian restaurant that is over priced. I've eaten better at a more reasonable price else where. The tables are so close together that you can hear the next table's conversation -... More

This place is THE place if you want great quality Asian food, with some differences. Service is friendly, and the prices are rock bottom, yet the standard of produce is right up there. The "Pop Chicken" was so unusual, but so good, and the serves generous. I could write more but just go there. Living in South Melbourne you have... More

The food was excellent and the service was great. Tucked- away on a side street, it was obvious that the locals in the area loved this place too. The staff managed the busy eat-in and take-away very efficiently. Would definitely eat here again!

Interesting menu with great choices at cheap prices - the pop chicken is of local legend! A good variety of specials too. Portions are generous and service is fast and friendly, even at the busiest of lunchtimes. I would definitely recommend. Takeaway is also available.

Living in South Melbourne you have a wide choice of restaurants and this one in Wells Street is one not too miss. If you do not book you have a long wait outside to get. This a great indication of the food quality and service.

If you want a cheap meal and love an Asian flavour, then I suggest you indulge. When I travel to Melbourne for business, this is my go to place. Great variety, takeaways within 15 minutes and eat for less that $20.
