Booked table before we left home on recommendation of friend who lives in Melbourne. Had special duck entree & lamb with aubergine mustard, gorgeous. Also had pork shoulder & stir-fried verges. Deconstructed tiramisu was fantastic for desert. Will definitely revisit.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Michelle, this message came to me, not to Rice, Paper, Sister. I can't answer though I do think they have a lunch deal for $30 each which is very good.
