Nongkhai Thai Restaurant Essendon

Essendon

Garry dined on Wed, 19th Sep 2018 (10)

Once again great food and service. However when I checked my bill after we had left I noticed I didn't received the 20% off the food for people who dine on Tuesday and Wednesday and book through Dimmi. Probably my mistake I didn't bring it to their attention but they were aware it was a Dimmi booking. Still great food and service :)

Nongkhai Thai Restaurant Essendon

Essendon

Garry dined on Sat, 1st Sep 2018 (10)

Great local Thai restaurant. They have recently moved 50 metres up the road to great new premises. So don't be fooled by the lights not being on at their old location.

San Telmo

Melbourne CBD

Garry dined on Mon, 21st Aug 2017 (10)

It was a great dining experience - we were able to share our choices from the special Monday menu and enjoy a nice red in the deal. The atmosphere was warm & nviting and the staff friendly & helpful.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Garry dined on Sun, 25th Jun 2017 (10)

Waiter service and help with menu selections was excellent. Staff very friendly & helpful. We shared a 'strip loin' dish with vegetables after sharing calamari & fresh bread with balsamic vinegar & oil. The dessert menu items looked delicious but we were completely satisfied & could not consume any more. We had a booking for 12.30 & left just after 3pm having enjoyed a beautiful lunch!

Squires Loft Essendon

Essendon

Garry dined on Sun, 28th May 2017 (9)

Seated in a quiet alcove corner - perfect for our catch up with friends. Cosy & warm atmosphere on a rainy day! Service was excellent as were our medium rare eye fillet steaks - a bit disappointed though that we were charged $4.90 each for an accompanying sauce. Thought that may have been included in the $56 for a 300gm Black Angus Eye & $39 for 300gm Eye fillet !

Very pleasant afternoon/early evening before going to Hamer Hall.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Garry dined on Wed, 6th Jul 2016 (8)

Very busy. Concerned that we might not get our meals (pasta, pizza and bottle of wine) with enough time to enjoy before having to leave for the theatre. Pasta was cold but topping was hot. Only offered water once. Would still go again as it very convenient to the Arts Centre and meals reasonably priced.

Pomodoro Sardo Melbourne

Melbourne CBD

Garry dined on Wed, 25th Mar 2015 (6)

Service was good - restaurant was not overly busy and our meals arrived promptly allowing us to get to our next venue in time. Food tasty and staff pleasant

Il Pom Italian Fed Square

Melbourne CBD

Garry dined on Sat, 6th Dec 2014 (7)

Service and food quite good however we (party of 4) were placed on a smallish table with limited room for meals and drinks. We were crammed into a corner inside of the restaurant with two other tables of 4 plus a pre-hens nights group of 12. We were constantly being crowded by waitresses trying their best to attend to the tables. I had to insist two bar stools (not being used) be relocated to avoid the crush. It was a bit noisy which I guess one has to expect with a pre-hens dinner on the next table.

Outside dining was very enjoyable - good food & wine and very friendly service.

Il Portobello

Essendon

Garry dined on Thu, 4th Oct 2012 (7)

Disappointing that only 2 of group of 4 enjoyed coffee due to lack of milk & only 2 able to have Salmon. Atmosphere & service of waiting staff good. Food well presented & tasty

Il Portobello

Essendon

Garry dined on Sat, 23rd Jun 2012 (9)

The space for our group was a bit cramped (7 people) but the restaurant was fully booked with several 'special occasions'. The place was warm on a cold night, the staff very welcoming & obliging and the food enjoyable. We like to BYO favourite wine and found the corkage to be reasonable. The 'entertainment book' voucher was happily accepted as it has been many times before.
