We were having dinner with a friend 'somewhere in South Melbourne' and I had no idea where we would go. So, off to Trip Advisor I go and lo and behold, I find Peko Peko and decide 'what the hell' let's give it a go. Rang and made a booking and asked 'do you mind sitting near the door?', and... More

The Taiwanese food here is so good and reasonably priced that we dine there almost once a week. It is best to book as the restaurant is always busy. Tables turn over several times a night. The food is excellent overseen in the kitchen by Jack. The delightful staff in the restaurant have become our friends. Their friendly greeting extends... More

My 3rd visit and I am hooked on this place! I need to get back to sample more of the delicious menu, if only I could get past the pop chicken! To die for! Great casual venue that is great value for money.

Found Peko Peko after looking for a restaurant near our hotel in Melbourne . All I can say is the food and the service were both excellent . Well worth a visit in the area , but get there early if you have not booked

We arrived at our accommodation late on a Thursday evening, and wandered down to Wells st. It was about 8.50pm. We could see people dining in Peko Peko so we entered. We were greeted by a tired looking staffer, informing us that it would be take away meals only as they were closing, we responded that we would look elsewhere.... More

This place is busy, and a little hard to explain, its cute but with so many sophisticated elements. The food comes out quick, the staff are like little dynamos, attentive and sharp, its a great place for lunch and very well priced.

Went on a very busy Friday night but my friend who is a local booked a table. Service was quick and friendly even on a busy night. Restaurant is small and personable, so expect a noisy chatty atmosphere. We ordered the pop chicken for starters which is better than any version out there. For main we enjoyed beef with ginger,...

Arrived at 9pm on a thursday and they were closing the kitchen. Apart from having to order very quickly, and not having much gluten free choice, we were pretty impressed. The mains (big eats) arrived before the entrees (little eats) by about 5 minutes. We put this down to the kitchen closing. We weren't offered any drinks, and noted it... More

This little restaurant provided the most magnificent food of this type I have tatsed. We thought outside the square and asked for a banquet that was not on the menu (gave them a dollar per head and let them go for it). The chef provided food of a standard and variety that was impressive and our party of 5 left... More
