Staff are lovely and the menu is very reasonable. Lunch is quiet and the staff are very attentive without being obtrusive. A little gem on victoria street away from crowds and expensive parking. Am a regular!

Wonderful spicy food served with a smile and for a very low price. We had a great lunch and enjoyed every mouthful. It's not the usual bland taste we get but refreshing and spicy.

This restaurant is basic , can get very noisy, food is very good, staff friendly and on the ball. Wont disappoint. For some reason does give me dry mouth syndrome after eating there. And im not alone. And its happened on multiple occasions. If you can cope with that, worth the visit.

Loi Loi offers a great variety of quality dishes at very reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and very helpful. A group from work eat there nearly every week which is a great reference given the number of restaurants in the local area. Service is quick and the environment is clean Highly Recommended

First time at Loi Loi for me but my group of friends go there often. The food was nice but I was surprised that the prices were more expensive than I expected espically for melbourne city area. I ordered a drink earlier in the night and when I was finished waited and waited to order another, but the waiter eventually... More

Have been here many times of the years. It's not a glamorous venue and there are lots of staff who don't seem to speak English (however they do smile and nod) but when the food tastes like this - who cares! Spring rolls wrapped in lettuce; delicious, whole fish served with ginger; just to die for and the mandarin chicken... More

Great place, service is lovely and the food is great. The roast duck doesn't appear to be on the menu but is fantastic. So are the sizzling dishes and the spring rolls. Highly recommend.
