    Incredible salads, pork and lamb. Flavours explode in your mounth. We chose to order different dishes instead of the trial menu and it ended being cheaper than we thought. I loved this place.
  • 陳玟成 Edwin D.
    Truly the best pork belly within Melbourne CBD...their lamb ribs and beef cheek are highly recommended too!

    The $65 banquet was more than enough food for 2. Fun date night with delicious food and cocktails. Beware the green curry prawn. Delicious but spicier than it looks. Definitely packs a punch!

    Great menu all round - on our first sampling here, we really liked the barramundi on betel leaves, the kale salad & the pork belly. Will go again.

    The only way to experience the many flavours this restaurant has to offer is to order one of the Banquet menus. (As others have mentioned, the pork belly dish may just be the best you've ever tasted!) Read more

    The pork belly. *flails Go for the lunch buffet to make sure you have sampled all the best they have on offer. Jasmine has a great personality and was attentive. The decor is mind blowing.

    Skip the small plates, many of which sadly are deep fried ond over-greasy (eg lamb ribs and corn fritters), and go strait for the larger plates and salads which are fresh and delicious.

    The food was pretty awesome, esp the pork belly, lamb ribs and barramundi. Although the service was less than commendable.

    Try the Pandan Cream With Peanut Praline, Puffed Rice, Coconut Gel And Coconut Ice Cream - I have died and gone to heaven. Or I must have.

    Best place on Earth, this is an institution!Pork belly of course is a winner as well as their cocktail jugs. I love Red Sprice Road so much.

    You cannot go past the pork belly. $25 pp for 3 mains or $30 pp for 5 mains to share with at least another person is served generously with fluffly jasmine rice.

    Best thing to do for a first-timer is to get the $75 banquet. You get a taste of all their best dishes. Absolutely amazing!

    The wagyu beef stir-fry was one of the better bites I've ever had. Good price for lunch banquet at $28pp

    The banquet is huge for 2 people it's enough for a family. When you are full they will serve you 2 more main courses and then dessert.

    The vegetarian betel appetizer is extremely spicy- be warned! And although these guys can tone down on the chili, they like their garlic. Don't forget chewing gum! Or your credit card. Pricey.
  • Dan M.
    There are literally no bad menu choices here - don't miss out on the ribs though, they were my favourite!

    Pork belly was fantastic but sauce was overly sweet, even with liberal lashings of the supplied vinegar.

    Had the set menu 2 people. Every single dish tastes the same. No typical spices of Thai cuisine was found. All tastes Chinese. Rude staff trying to snatch your plates anytime

    The manager has a big time attitude. When I gave him some feedback he told me he serves 10000 people a month and didnt care for customers. If a couple dont come back he doesnt give a ra** a**

    The pork belly *is* fantastic. Everything else seems overrated and overpriced - there is better Asian "fusion" food to be had elsewhere.
