“Not just a night club - Colonel Tan's is a great eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Colonel Tan's is hidden away in Revolver and worth looking for. The meals on offer cover different Asian styles but with a mainly a Malaysian twist. The flavours combos are clean and well thought out, the prices reasonable and overall vibe great for friends catching up. Thursday night is half price if you live in the area - a great incentive for the locals. It's loud and busy, so you can laugh with gusto while savouring the wonderful dishes - they don't skimp on the chillies either.

“Colonel Tans = Asian food in a music venue and its fab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This review is for Colonel tans which is the Asian restaurant which is part of Revolver upstairs ( a music/night venue). Colonel Tans is fantastic, very reasonably priced and probably the best Asian food on Chapel St. The venue is very funky with old sofas and a DJ playing in a cage! Love it.

“Pretentious and lame music”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

We arrived just as the headline band finished playing. Had to wait an hour for the next DJ to set up. In the meantime very lame music was played in the background. The DJ was not worth the wait.

“Colonel Tans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2011

This place is great. Not only is Revolver one of the few places in Australia still supporting local live music, but Colonel Tans (...the resturant in the back room) is one of my fave places to eat and grab a drink when I'm in Melb. The food is great, the prices are stupidly affordable, and the service is helpful & friendly. The Fat Duck Noodles is a killer dish.

The decor is edgy retro (.... think 70's grunge) and the music is always in keeping with the feel of the place.
