    Supposedly this is a cliche visit for anyone coming to Melbourne but it's worth it. Great food and tasty cocktails but they're price was nothing to rave about. Lovely dim lighting and great service.

    Love this place! The food is beyond perfect and the service extra-ordinary! Some of my favourites are the deep fried whole baby snapper, pork ribs, green curry with dumplings and the stir fried beef.

    Highlight of Melbourne. Shared deep fried barramundi, soft shell crab, deep fried pork ribs and steamed mussels. I don't even like mussels, these ones were so delicately flavoured and beautiful.

    Ask for what beer is new on tap. They have your usual brews as well as an ever changing selection of refreshingly obscure beers on tap from all over the globe.

    Best place in the city for drinking beer. Cozy atmosphere, huge beer list, friendly staff.

    Yellow chicken curry, chilli prawns and soft shell crab roll. Easily the best in town. Even on a busy night, the staff is really great!!

    Get the staff to recommend their favourite menu items. If you're not sure, then they are bound to inspire you (Thai grilled sausage was amazing).

    Lamb Penang and coconut rice washed down with an amoretto sour - it's a killer combo #delish

    This place has an excellent selection of beer and wine, but don't forget to eat there. Amazing Thai inspired food (don't forget to order roti).

    Great place in summer, if you can get a window seat. Food is amazing. Don't come here to catch up just for a drink there are a million better places.

    Great drinks and food - one of the bigger bars (ie. not really a hidden pub) but really nice, specially with a bigger group.

    Fantastic selection of bottled international beer. If you're in good beer loving company, then it's a great stop on one of the quieter nights.

    Crazy cocktail and beer menu with thai styled dishes to share. If there's no room at the restaurant, it's the same menu at the bar. Don't forget Rooftop Bar on lvl 4

    For a refreshing resplendent beverage try a CV and B. It is a shirt glass with ice, single shot of Cariel Vanilla vodka topped with Bulmers Cider. Nothing better than vodka and apple, simply divine!

    They have little creatures on tap, and of all the places I've tried it in Melbourne, its the best at cookie.

    Make sure you order a bicycle beer with the spicy scallop entree - good combo and the beer puts out the flames in your mouth

    Trendy indie restaurant/ bar that has great Thai food and the best beer selection that I have come across in Australia.

    Coffee here is fantastic!! Couple with one of the delicious deserts, while during on the balcony mid afternoon and you have yourself a treat

    No reservation? Tables filled up? Try the bar to the left and around the corner, there are usually seats and you can order from the full menu

    Loved the atmosphere and great beer choices. Didn't get any food this time around, but from the others around me that ordered, it smelled delicious!

    Get one of the beers on tap. So many to choose from, and they change all the time.

    Nice vibe, good service and awesome layout. Very melbourne. Great range of beers/cocktails. Try scoring a balcony spot if you're lucky enough.

    This place gives and gives. Try the pork belly curry, the duck, the flaming zombie cocktail and then go upstairs to the bar!

    Wow, the pork belly red curry is amazing! Get it!

    If you're having dinner. Make a reservation. Or you get treated like a second class citizen on the bar side. I've been waiting for my food for an hour. All my friends have finished

    Don't wear a suit or look like a tosser, or the bouncer Ali will tell you the venue is closed. Once you're inside, have a gin and tonic with cucumber, or a passionfruit martini. Fantastic flavours.

    I've tried pork belly in many different places, but it was only here that the very first bite made me exclaim: oh, that's what it's supposed to taste like!

    Make the bar staff choose your drinks for you. Much more interesting. Ask for Luke, his beer knowledge is second to none!

    Excellent food, service and beer. My favourite Melbourne venue. Make sure you book if you want to eat because Cookie is very very awesome and everyone will already be here before you.

    Every entree was incredibly spicy. Even the pad Thai which is normally a safe choice burned my mouth.

    Hard to find! Look for a door that looks like this and walk up just one flight of stairs. You'll thank me later.

    Staff are always flustered & appear disorganised. But the 'Pork Belly Red Curry' was definitely worth the wait!

    Green chicken curry is really good, but make sure you ask for less chilli if you can't handle the heat

    A great place to stop around dinner time - there is a Thai restaurant. Fantastic selection of single malt scotches.

    Get the bloody Mary. Extra spicy. Be prepared to wait a little though.

    Try the Bloody Mary, which better resembles a spicy alcoholic soup than the gentle hangover cure of yore. Read more

    If not on the food side and trying to get a drink you'll have to weave between patrons sitting at the bar but your choices will be varied.

    Food is decent. Wines are a bit overpriced. Even for the city. Recommend lamb & eggplant Penang curry.
