Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Probably the main shopping strip of Richmond, we enjoyed walking up and down it many times over our visit, browsing and shopping, fave places were Kruah 2 Thai restaurant, is worth a visit and richmond traders was our shopping centre of choice, and the red cross op shop, is good value.

Really disappointed in Bridge Road. It’s been a number of years since I was here and to be honest I expected more - half the shops were either empty or closed. It used to be known for shopping but not anymore. There were a lot of cocktail/wedding/suit shops which is great if that’s what your after and a few cafes. Some small independent shops as well. Wouldn’t be in a hurry to come back.

Bridge Road is known for food and fashion. Restaurants range from Vietnamese noodle shops to haute cuisine. Fashion is a feature of Bridge Road. Each road in Richmond has its own character; Bridge Road is food and fashion. Bridge Road begins at Punt Road; if you don't feel like walking, get a Myki and take the Number 75 Tram.

Great food. Good choices on the menu. Helpful staff. Spent five days in the ward and five days in Rehab. Got a new knee.

I'm staying right off Bridge Road for two months. Bridge Road is busy almost all day with people walking, shopping, and eating. When I heard about Bridge Road, I expected it to have more shopping. I can't count the number of restaurants on this street from Burnley to Church and beyond. There's one every 3-4 storefronts. If there isn't a restaurant, there is a hotel (pub), massage parlor or nail or hair salon. Although I enjoy walking the area, I am disappointed that there are so few shops to purchase clothes, jewelry, shoes, etc. On the other hand, there are some nice restaurants which should not be missed.

Very disappointed to see so many shops gone, empty, leased.
Would not really recommend coming here anymore and go to a dfo or larger shopping center.
Such a shame.

Done what I’ve always done in Melbourne - gone shopping for a bargain in Bridge Road Richmond. No need to bother - it’s almost like a deserted ghost town. Very few outlets - apart from a Richmond Grand Final flag - never was nothing left. Times have changed,

It's been a while since I went shopping at Bridge Rd in Richmond where there were so many shops, clothes and shoe stores and factory direct stores. I walked down the road and most of the stores were closed! And hardly any cafes or restaurants, most were closed down. What's happening? Is the council doing a clean up or what? Was very dissappointed.

This used to be a thriving shopping strip in Melbourne and now it's completely hopeless. Barely any shops left. I went there last week and now the Country Road Outlet is gone, the whole place is completely deserted. This place is now up there with the deserted Chapel Street. If you want a decent shopping experience go either into the CBD, visit Chadstone shopping centre (personally I find Chadstone way too big and overwhelming).

Bridge Road is simply the best! Great restaurants, cafes, pubs. The shopping is brilliant. If you are in Melbourne it is a short tram ride from the CBD and it will not disappoint!
