delicious food, a great place to go to in south melbourne

It's just around the corner but it took as a month to discover it. Now I would go there every day if I could. We had the small bites specials spinach dumplings with beef and seared scallops and big bites special, fried brown rice with sweet corn and anchovies which were just amazing.

Started with a Tofu appetizer in a light broth that hit the spot on a cold rainy evening. The fried rice and honey beef entree were too much for me to eat on my own, but boy were they delicious. The service was efficient, friendly and attentive. The staff made very good suggestions and encouraged me to have a Taiwanese... More

Good food at a reasonable price. Very attentive staff! Love the Honeyed Crispy Beef! Fried rice is a very generous and fresh serve. My only qualm after 3 visits was watching a server wipe table scraps onto the floor. Really?!!!!

We visited with friends and shared a couple of entrees, four mains and desserts. The 'pop chicken' and '5 spice calamari' were the stand outs but everything we ordered was inventive and delicious. Prices were quite reasonable and BYO wine is accepted. This place is really busy, with a steady stream of take aways walking out the door and queues... More

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
