My husband, daughter and I ate there for dinner. I was hesitant at first because there was noone else there. I like bustling restaurants as I always take this as meaning it's popular and good. The place could do with a good scrub and decor update and I think they could improve the vibe with some music as it was... More

We went to this restaurant after checking reviews on Tripadvisor and thought to have Bangladeshi cousin there but actually this is an Indian restaurant. They served chicken biriyani which was defrosted and rice was under cook. Prawn item was served freshly cooked and for that we only manage to finish our food. Waiters were well mannered. Not recommended if someone... More

Don't need fancy! Just want good food. Very basic SMALL restaurant. No heating in winter, so I'm thinking no cooling in summer. Price & Value . Makes up for it.

This is a very unassuming place. From the outside, one would be forgiven for passing it by, but once confronted with the generous dishes of authentic food, you will sing its joy for a long time. Very reasonable and very palatable. I've been twice this week and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Not your average Indian/Australian experience.

Its a small place, not very impressive from outside. But once you enter, you find very simple people serving you good food - mind you the food here is a little spicy so decide accordingly. All in all, small little place in cbd mainly to help me satisfy my cravings for home made roti / chappati :)

Despite the ordinary exterior, this restaurant was a delightful find. I love samosas and these were the best I've had in Australia. The pastry was very light and not oily, with the vegetable mix just perfectly spicy. The dahl was creamy and delicious. I was the only person there on a Saturday night just before a show at Her Majesty's... More

This is the one and only Bangladeshi restaurant in Melbourne, Try their Biryani very good. Bangladeshi Biryani might look similar to Indian Biryani but they taste different after a long search finally I found some thing close to Biryani in Melbourne.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
