It is such an experience coming here, a gem in Melbourne. The tasting menu is an affordable tapas with 9 dishes. I couldn’t ask for more with that price. The seating was comfortable, and the staff was professional even I didn’t have a booking. They...More

Booked three weeks in advance. Wagu was great. The food choices are a bit different and while it didn't appeal to me others enjoyed the 9 shared serves selected by them. Had opportunity to advise on my dislikes otherwise it was a mystery selection.

The food is simply just delicious, easy to share and fresh. Waiters are friendly, the area upstairs with the outdoor area is the perfect place to meet friends and the bar menu fabulous. The Sangria on a hot night is all you need to refresh,...More

Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
