Two business colleagues and I had lunch at Platinum. While two of us were on time our colleague was delayed about 30 minutes but we felt comfortable and weren't pestered while we waited for him to join us. When he finally arrived the service was prompt and efficient leaving us to our discussion. I had the calamari dish which came with a delightful cress salad on the side and some of the best chips I've had in a long time - crisp and crunchy with a light, fluffy centre that made me wonder whether or not someone in the kitchen was using Heston Blumenthal's technique for making the perfect chip. Whatever the process, the outcome was really good. The wine list covers a good range of styles and regions with many available by the glass although, being so close to the Yarra Valley, I would have liked to have seen more of the wines sourced from there. All up, a good lunch in pleasant surroundings and a very professional team of staff from the kitchen through to the reception. I would go there again.
