Our first meal when we reached Melbourne, just minutes away from the hotel. 50s deco, really interesting and cozy. Great selection of food choices and we ordered a wrap, burger and wings! Lovely!

Had previously visited this diner about 5 years ago and thought it great then. Trying to find somewhere with a teenager in tow was difficult and on that night didn't want to pay $35 that other places wanted for a main course. We settle on this diner because of past experiences there. I had a piece of grilled fish and salad for $12.90. The specials board had lots of variety on it. All of the staff continually asked if everything was ok. The service and attention we received was streets ahead of every restaurant I have been to recently. Well done to the team at Golden Tower on Swanston Street.

It's a cafe or diner rather than a restaurant. We called in at 5.00am after a long and heavy night and ordered a hamburger, a souvlaki and pancakes respectively. Even at that hour the food was well prepared and fresh. I had the souvlaki and it wan't the best late night, post booze up meal I've ever had but the pancakes looked magnificent and according to their consumer were delicious. The service was wonderful though. Very polite and attentive without hovering over us and when a drunk wandered in and started hassling us four staff appeared and asked him to move on very firmly but politely. I've often wandered by this diner and wondered what it would be like so I'm glad to say it exceeded expectations.

The Golden Tower restaurant is a Melbourne Classic.

Located at 145 Swanston Street this diner offers a welcome atmosphere, friendly staff and awesome food and I believe they may have the best tasting burgers in Melbourne!

The diner is open from early morning to very late at night offering both dine in or take away meals.

Recommend to everybody who wants an honest, good value meal.
