The food was nice and it was cheap but it didn't live up to the hype that I have seen on websites etc!

Can't beat the fast service or the price but I feel that over the last year the food standards have dropped. It was my go to, not anymore.

Packed with customers but a fast turn around. Great meal choices that are fast, healthy, and cheap. Well worth a try.

I’m not giving DonDon 5 stars because of the way the restaurant looks : Not that cosy/nice and a bit noisy. But the meals are super tasty, cheap and the quantity is perfect ! It’s a good place to share a dinner/lunch with your friends...More

A very busy place at lunch time, but you should get a table within 5 mins, as the food and the service is very quick. The bento box comes with a nice selection of chicken, beef and rice, with a good salad too.

Good food with extremely low price. For the quality of their food and pricetag, the dining environment isn't the priority on my list.

Central Business District
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
