Despite this restaurant having closed several months ago (dare I say it, a year ago?...oh how time flies) I wish to say a few things to redeem the reputation of a restaurant which I will sadly miss. I had the pleasure of eating at Nudel bar on several occasions, indulging in a cheeky extended lunch break here and there (because... More

As a long-time diner at Nudel Bar, I dined there again on Wednesday, I find the comments in the review of June 17 hard to believe. This restaurant is sensitive to dietary requirements and diners are asked to advise wait staff of any allergies. I have always found the service to be as good as the food; in other words,... More

My friend ordered the Chicken Broth, which listed every ingredient on the menu except bean sprouts. She is allergic to legumes. When she had an anaphylactic attack, she very politely asked for another, and pointed out that bean sprouts were not listed on the menu. There was then a misunderstanding about the bill (we misread it). The owner and waiter... More

Just like many of those who wrote reviews for this place on Google, I got terrible food poisoning. When I told the management about this they simply told me it was nothing to do with them and that I must have got it from somewhere else! The whole experience was a disappointment. The food was not anywhere near as the... More

Another Melbourne stalwart. Some have complained that prices have increased in recent years (I tend to agree); but the food is always fresh and delicious. Service is speedy and friendly. It has more of a cafe feel than a serious restaurant, which works well for a fast, enjoyable meal.

Very slow service. Food was okay but would have been priced at about $5 in New York or Toronto instead of the $80 tab for pretty basic stuff.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
