“What a brilliant find!”

The Yarra Valley Smokery
Ranked #4 of 56 Restaurants in Lilydale
Restaurant details

Dropped in for lunch on a whim and what a find! The smell as we walked in was a good indication that we were going to like this place ... and we weren't disappointed!

They have just about every kind of meat imaginable, smoked and served in a soft bread roll, Turkish bread or brioche... with beautiful thick chips and with pickled carrot that compliments the neat perfectly! Brilliant!

You know when you see someone that you recognise, and then realise that they're actually not just an old friend but a movie star, or some sort of celebrity, well after a while I worked out where I knew the guy in the kitchen from ... he is the well renowned chef previously from one of my favourite haunts, the Kublai Mongolian BBQ in Croydon (and was also a reality TV star at one stage). Once I'd realised who was in the kitchen, I wasn't at all surprised how good this was!

Amazing place. Saw reviews saying that the sandwiches were the best in Australia. Was on my way to Healesville and thought will have to check this for myself. Well it is 100% true. Brilliant sandwiches and chips and lovely people.

Good coffee and fantastic food. All day breakfast with the best eggs bacon salmon etc on sourdough. Friendly staff and super friendly owner who smokes his own bacon, brisket, cheese etc. His smoked cheese is magnificent. Large servings. Will not disappoint. Highly recommend this eatery.

Stopped in for a snack this morning with my partner. Decided to share a Naughty Brisket and smoked Dim Dims. Very glad we shared as we were both stuffed.

The chef advised us the best way to eat the entree and main which we are glad we did. The brisket was perfectly cooked for the shaves style in the burger, not complaints about having a larger burger than suggested. The sauce with the chips was amazing just wish we could eat more.

Will absolutely be back and hats off to the chef/front of house gentleman that put our burger together as his friendly service was already very welcoming before we tried this delicious food.

If you love meat you will love this place. The food was amazing. The staff were very attentive. The owner/chef is extremely passionate about the food he serves and loves chatting with people about the food.
