I've now visited here several times...sometimes with one or two others and once with a large group. All lunches, although middle fish also does dinner for most of the week. The food is vibrant and fresh, full of all the tastes and flavours you would expect from good Thai cuisine.. the menu is varied, with options that will hopefully suit... More

Have been coming here on and off for lunch since they opened a few years ago. It started off on a reasonable note, food was quite good and prices OK. The most recent visit was enough to make sure we do not return. The prices have increased and the food has just got worse and worse. It has been on... More

No frills Thai food is the staple here. Service is bright, and rapid. The space the restaurant occupies is an old warehouse, so concrete floors and exposed brickwork and plumbing are the norm. Nevertheless, it has a decent atmosphere, especially when it is busy. The food was well done; plenty of spice, and not de-tuned for western palates.

Met a group of colleagues for lunch here. As I am GF I ordered a noodle dish and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly, the food was served quickly and it tasted amazing. I would happily have gone back there the same evening but realised we needed to try other places. I felt it was good value too

Nice decor and friendly staff. Went for lunch and found many guest around - looks like more popular among the employees around that area. It is said that it is a Thai restaurant but it tasted me like more Chinese but no matter food was still good. By name, please don't get confused as they have no preparation made out... More

This used to be great but I honestly would not bother now. The prices to me now seem honestly outrageously high for what it is. Plus I was told with very little interest or concern that every single thing on the menu was gluten free when I asked. Not quite sure if that could be true, especially when there are... More

There's no doubt that when you first come to Middle Fish for the first time you'll notice the funky Melbourne decor (which is great!) but what I've always enjoyed in my semi annual pilgrimages over the last few years was the authenticity: you knew you would get a breakfast here that was just like what they'd be eating in Thailand...

Son in law egg was delish. My husband had the crispy pork which was unfortunately chewy instead of crunchy which is always a bummer, flavours were there though. satay chicken was super tasty. Venue is very roomy and was comfortable in a booth.

Thai food is so yesterday, it risks going the sames way as Chinese food -- the same dishes, no imagination, high prices. Middle Fish is creative Thai food, -- good food made with imagination. The price is affordable and it is very popular, especially with Asian students. Try to get there early to get a table..

Lunch there last week. They were terrific and friendly about accommodating for my unusual allergy. Everything was cool and fun, the décor, the crockery, the way they served the tea.... the pork dish was delicious. Loved it!
