Hoo haa bar


Desiree dined on Sat, 7th Sep 2019 (9)

I received a birthday voucher through my subscription to Hoo Haa's newsletter and used it last night. I shared the cauliflower gems, tempura broccolini and jackfruit bao with my date and we were both comfortably full. The food was delicious and we couldn't go past the 2 for 1 cocktails. Our server took great care of us, the atmosphere was lively and there was a good crowd present. Definitely keen to head back and try the $25 bottomless feed some weekend soon.

Alibi Urban Gastropub

Melbourne CBD

The service was great but the atmosphere was a little lacking..didn't realise the restaurant was part of a hotel, so there were very few people around. Nice if you want a quiet dinner, not if you're looking for a vibe/night out.

Bay City Burrito St Kilda

St Kilda

The service was great, as was the food..I used the Fork Fest 50% discount so it was pretty good value for money. I'm already planning my next visit for the popcorn cauliflower alone!


Melbourne CBD

I walk past this restaurant quite often and have always assumed it was more upperclass from their logo and restaurant fit out. I came here on a date last night and took advantage of the Fork Fest discount. While the staff were friendly I feel like they possibly need a bit more training when it comes to serving tables. Nothing huge to note, but small things like forgetting a side order/not clearing away serve ware that is obviously no longer being used, which gets annoying when the table is already full. We ordered a salad, curry and rice to share which was plenty for 2 people, so the portions are on point but we felt that the food was lacking in flavour. it was on the bland side which is something I never thought I'd say about Indian cuisine. Value for money was obviously good as we used the 50% discount. It was worth a try but I've had far better Indian elsewhere and won't return.

Yoku Ono


Desiree dined on Sun, 14th Apr 2019 (10)

I came to Yoku after many rave reviews from friends who had eaten the before me. The vegan ramen was super tasty, with loads of mushrooms (my fave) and was served pretty quickly after ordering. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy, with some soft mood lighting, perfect for date night. I will definitely be back to savour more delicious ramen in the near future.

Zen Charcoal BBQ

South Yarra

Desiree dined on Fri, 15th Feb 2019 (8)

Went here for date night and we both enjoyed ourselves as the service and food were both great. My only "negative" comment would be that the whole fun of Korean BBQ is that you get to cook everything yourselves, which we didn't get to do..not sure if you're supposed to ask beforehand or if it's a safety thing with the restaurant. Other than that everything was great!

Hoo haa bar


Desiree dined on Wed, 3rd Oct 2018 (9)

I had a voucher to spend and I did so entirely on the food, which was pretty tasty. Because I had gone in around 6.30pm I was the only person in the bar, which is the only reason I gave a 7 as I wasn’t able to experience the atmosphere in all of its glory. The bartender served me at my table and was super lovely. Will definitely go back so I can try the nasu burger and have a bit of a boog.
