This place has a roaring take away trade. It is only a small restaurant but not often full. The owner and waiter are really nice. The tea is good and variety of food good.

Tea and Rice is our "go to" restaurant in Ormond. One Sunday night each month when our grandchildren get to choose the restaurant, they always choose this restaurant. We all devour the hand rolls that are full of goodness including prawns and vermicelli. Then it's on to one of their special dishes, the pepper steak served on a sizzling platter.... More

Tea and Rice is a great neighbourhood restaurant. Lulu and her team offer food of good quality, sizeable serves and good value for money. The menu comprises Asian flavours including Vietnamese, Chinese, Malaysian and Thai. It's a great place to go with a group and share the meal at various sized round tables. Services is generally very obliging and not... More

A great local restaurant with reasonable prices. Sizzling beef and basil is excellent, as is the salt and pepper squid. The eggplant dish is also good. A great place to eat with friends or family.

My wife and I thought we would try this restaurant out, but were disappointed. Lets start with the staff....they were polite but not friendly.....no smiles, not welcoming. The restaurant itself seemed clean and tidy but it was really really hot inside. There was an air-conditioner on the wall but not sure if it was on.....it made the visit very uncomfortable.... More

We came on Saturday night and glad we made a reservation as the place quickly filled up. When the waiter come to take our order, we were given complementary prawn crackers. Our meals came out quickly and were generous portions. The satay tofu with vegetables was tasty and the coconut rice was delicious. The staff were attentive and constantly refilling... More

Eaten here for years but the food quality has become so bad that we will not be back. Tasteless sauces and tough meats - simply do not make the grade. Advise eating elsewhere.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews we first went to this restaurant a few weeks ago. We enjoyed it the first time and were looking forward to going again. However, after tonight's visit, we are unlikely to go again. The Roti with Satay sauce was a very tiny serve and the Dim Sims, which someone had previously raved about, were very... More

We've been coming here for ages. It's our fave "cheap n cheerful." Have taken many friends who are now also regulars. Steamed dimmies are delish. Have tried Vietnamese spring rolls and they are also beautiful. We normally have the House Special Combination. One serve is heaps for two with steamed rice. Staff are attentive and nothing's too much trouble. Being... More
