Went there on the last night in Melbourne because of reviews on tripadvisor. Was not disappointed. Food was very fresh and absolutely appealing. Service was very attentive and in tune. Lobster mornay was to die for and all other fantastic choices of food were exceptional. Well worth the money and cant wait to go back

“Thank you Rise Cafe”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A friend organized a group lunch at Rise Cafe for mid May. She had been raving about the food since it had opened. It was just as she had described, great service & what I call delicious authentic Asian food at very reasonable prices. I think my biggest surprise was the house wines, What amazing value for money.
We went back on Saturday night to try the buffet, just top be sure... fabulous :-)
My partner & I are now hooked.. Thank you Rise

“Worth every dollar spent”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Being away from home so long, finding the right taste in this city is a problem. Judging from the looks of the chef and food, I took a risk being the first customer of the day at the bar location on the future end of the docklands and ordered roast duck noodle soup (8.90$ - good price compared with other oriental dishes in CBD). The duck tastes so much like Maxim's roast duck in HK, the noodles were perfectly boiled and the soup was hot and nice. Wondering how their duck was made, I asked Tony (supervisor of the day there) and knew that the Chef is actually from HK and could been adapting similar tastes. Plump sauce that came along was also nice, naturally sweet and sour.

“Outstanding Buffet, Excellent Service, Docklands at its Best”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Being a Melbourne Docklander I was keen to try this new addition and was completely overwhelmed by how great this restaurant was. The choice of food in the buffet covers all tastes, the local wines are reasonably priced, and the service is just outstanding. I was so impressed with our experience, We tipped our young waitress, even though it wasn't a cheap meal, which is most unlike this TrikeMan...yes it was that good...

The restaurant overlooks Victoria Harbour with choices of the Formal Fine Dining Buffet, an outside Bistro on the Waterfront (as a cheaper option), plus a Cafe & Bar as quick options if you live or work nearby.

This is a fantastic addition to Docklands, it may be a little bit off the the Main Road (Harbour Esplanade), it does overlook Victoria Harbour and if you seek out this wonderful place..and are not concerned about budget...I am sure you will enjoy the experience
