I just love this restaurant, the food is out of this world. There is such a variety of food to have and it all tastes delicious. Simply the best in town. Thank you Ricky, Ben and all the other staff. Highly recommend this place, the Duck's Guts.

nice atmosphere in Melbourne suburb - mixed Asian cuisine - better to go for fresh and fried dishes. Impressed by waiter saying we might have ordered too much!

A few times a year we feel like Malaysian food and we always choose Blue Chillies in Brunswick Street Fitzroy. The food is consistently good, offers good value for money and good service. Last week four of us attended and one thing stood out: the service. It was outstanding. The restaurant was perhaps 1/2 to 3/4 full but the staff... More

I was part of a birthday dinner group on a Saturday evening and we had a wonderful time! The staff are absolutely delightful, so lovely and attentive, they really care that you're enjoying your evening. I'm gluten-free and vegetarian, so while my friends were sharing various dishes (that they all raved about), the staff were very helpful in pointing out... More

We had such a good time during our visit here. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the food was excellent! Great Malaysian cuisine with a lovely selection of dishes to choose from. We especially loved their Duck Rendang and their Chilli Beef! The restaurant has a nice vibe with cozy interiors and interesting décor. Loved it!

We liked it so much we ate in and did a take away the next day. And if you are a fan of laksa ... wow, yum. Try the lamb curry. Service was relaxed, efficient and attentive. We'll be back when we return to Melbourne.

We had lunch on a monday. Even though we were 10 minutes early, the staff welcomed us. We found the lunch menue to be well priced for AUD 20, including Satay Skewers, Laksa Soup and a Soft Drink. We very much enjoyed the Satay with its yummy Peanut Sauce. Also, the Laksa Soup was authentic, flavoursome and well prepared. We... More

Came in on a Saturday evening with my boyfriend, dressed up for date night! We did not have a reservation but asked if we could get a table for two, and saw two nice open tables. We were whisked to a tiny table in the back of the restaurant that had no place settings, was covered in scratches, and totally... More

We dined here on a Sunday night and found the Malaysian food tasty and filling. Service was excellent and based on our experiences in Melbourne, the food reasonably priced.

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighborhood Profile
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 cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighborhood that embraces both old and new.
