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.

We enjoyed the originality of the food which is shared by the owner who is from Tiawan. All the servers and food is delicious. Was our favorite place to eat in Melbourne. The servers are especially friendly and helpful in making your choices of foods.

Wanted to try something a bit different so wandered up to Peko Peko from our accommodation. Cool decor and an interesting menu, but was disappointed with the satay beef and the fried rice. Pop chicken was good and prawn dumplings nice. Good value. Service was slowish and not great but it was a Friday night and reasonably busy. Overall would... More

Excellent ambience. This Taiwanese-themed cafe/restaurant serves excellent food. Long queues are guaranteed so either reserve your tables or brave the cold (during winter...)

What an amazing little restaurant! Quirky decor with a great vibe. Food was brilliant. We shared Steam Juicy Pork Dumplings which were soft and delicious with a great dipping sauce as well as Avocado Prawn Spring Rolls, crispy and light perfectly complimented by the creamy mayo and Tonkatsu sauce. Mains were Pop Chicken - very popular, nearly every table in... More

I would definitely recommend this restaurant/café for lunch and dinner. Fantastic food….good quality. I have been going to this restaurant from last 5 years and taste never and quality of food never changed. Recommend to all my friends and they loved it. Try once and you will become friend of Peko Peko :))

Went to Peko Peko for a reunion with our Taiwan alumnus group, and we're absolutely happy with the food. Definitely is one of the most authentic Taiwanese food I ever tasted in Melbourne. The pop corn chicken is sensational. So happy to find this place. Will go there again for sure. Believe me, worth to try ! My mouth is... More

When in Melbourne we always eat here at least once. Good idea to book in advance as always very busy. Never been disappointed and the teenagers love the food. Good variety of food - doesn't look like much food when bought to table but is deceiving. A great little find will always go back :)

Food is excellent - but prepare to wait for a long time, if you walk in and order a takeaway during office lunch hour. Staff is attentive and efficient. Not very expensive.
