Couldn’t fault this place. We splurged on the “beta” 8-course meal (which was A LOT of food but amazing). Food was sensational. Staff were excellent and happy to give advice and swap out some dishes for vegetarian. Amazing feta-loaded crunch chips.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Halal should be banned in Australia. Its barbaric and has no place in a civilised society.

Hi, I have no doubt that they could cater for 17, but I suggest you will need to pre-book. I doubt you could walk in and expect seating for that number of people. Give it a go you will love it!
