Booked for a family dinner. I called the restaurant a few days before to reserve a table rather than book online. We got there a little early as the family was hungry and the restaurant was empty. We were shown to our "table" which was...More

We went to the restaurant after searching on Tripadvisor as we were looking for Asian food. This is a really modern fusion style with Chinese, Thai and Japan style and the decor also fits its profile. However, we found the choice slightly limited as most...More

Food 4/10 (some nice dishes; but mostly not very good Asian food) Service 8/10 (friendly; attentive) Decor 9/10 (excellent styling) Ambience 7/10 (music way too loud) This is a nice marketing concept but doesn't deliver where it counts (in the kitchen).

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its

Yes you would be able to have dinner at this venue if you are under 18. As this venue is a restaurant, not a pub. I hope you enjoy! And make sure you order the salt and pepper tofu.:-)

Located at 389 Brunswick Street, Rice Queen transports you into the world of kitsch Asian design where you can forget about the troubles of the day while sipping cocktails, enjoying sakè or nibbling on dishes handpicked from a range of different Asian cuisines. Our menu is geared toward shared dining and is best enjoyed by ordering a range of dishes for the table and experiencing as many flavours as you can. It also features a host of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options. Our drinks list keeps things intimate with a smart selection of wine, fantastic cocktails, sake and beers that reflect and complement the food. We also have a fabulous private Karaoke Room that can comfortably host 15 people (although we have squeezed more in!!), perfect for pre or post dinner fun. Lunch and dinner is available seven days from midday with the kitchen open all day.
