Great food

This is such great food and very reasonable prices. The bento box is superb and is very filling, traditional meals are so accurate too.

You would almost not find this place as it is not along the main road. Close proximity to Shrine of Remembrance and if you crave some Taiwanese style food after visiting the Shrine and the Royal Botanic Gardens. This is the place. Fair prices and quaint atmosphere. Good idea to share to sample a wider range of their food. If... More

The place gives all the right signals and apparently has a good reputation, but our food was disappointing at best. The gyozas were the worst I've ever had, not so much the filling, but the outside was mushy, not really grilled/fried at all, or not nearly enough anyway. And they were served with some dull soy sauce rather than the... More

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 atmosphere is pretty good it's a small place... 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.
