Above average restaurant in several respects: Food is fresh and tasty. The spring rolls tasted as tho they were made just prior to serving. Red Curry was full flavoured, and the wine list extensive. Service also very good. Ambiance is above average

Amazing green curry!!! It is different from other curry I have ever tasted since it is handmade. Full-bodied coconut milk in the soup is awesome and leads me to endless aftertaste. And the chicken in it is fresh and tender. Also, the surroundings and decoration...More

After a long absence we decided to try again. Located on the busy Lygon St precinct, which is pretty awful. Alas lemongrass is no better, I thought all dishes failed to hit the mark which was very disappointing. Service is not much better, my advice,...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way

Not sure Vasillios. I don't drink alcohol, so sometimes I forget about looking at this option. Maybe give them a call. Regards. 😃
