Location and contact

Fresh fragrant and fun, is the philosophy behind Melbourne’s funkiest Thai restaurant. Adopting a ‘no worries’ attitude and full of colour. BangPop is welcoming to all and provides an exceptional standard of refined salads, curries and hawker-influenced dishes with exceptional Australian produce. Located riverside to the Yarra, watch the Melbourne city skyline sipping on cocktails and tasting fresh spices in an environment that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Have visited here on several occasions and have always enjoyed their tasty food. Service is excellent and the restaurant has a fun vibe. Loved their beef brisket and basil as well as the lamb shank penang. Reasonably priced as well.

I need to start by admitting that Thai is not the best choice we made as non-chilli eaters, though we always make sure to ask about meals without chilli. I did this just yesterday and was told my meal could be made without chili. Great...More

BangPop is well located near Crowne Resort and better value than eating at the casino. The four meals we had were tasty and enjoyable. Massaman Beef Cheeks the highlight, it just could’ve done with a bit more beef. Would recommend

Came here for a work dinner on a Monday night so it was pretty quiet and missing a bit of atmosphere. Our waiter was nice and friendly and encouraged us to sit outside so we could watch the world go by but stay toasty and...More

The food was very good - very tasty - but gee it's pricey. A lunch with a girlfriend, 2 wines each, and curry at almost $30 each. It's a communal table type of place but we were lucky/early enough on a cold wet day to...More
