Flower Drum

Melbourne CBD

Alex dined on Fri, 19th Jul 2019 (10)

We went there for my girlfriend’s birthday and immediately we were warmly greeted by all of the staff. They arranged an lovely private table out of the way for us and the service by all of the waiters was spectacular. Every single dish that we tried was of the highest quality and presented beautifully. The care that all of the waiters took with presenting our food was exceptional and they prepared a special birthday plate which I didn’t even ask for. Overall, the whole night was perfect and we will definitely eat here again, next time we are in Melbourne. It is understandable why they have been so successful for such a long time as the level of professionalism and warmth shown to us is testament to the reputation they have earned. It is truly well deserved. A really warm thanks to Ray, John and Peter who looked after us and made the occasion very special and it will definitely remain as a highlight of our trip to Melbourne.

What an amazing experience. The dining room is spectacular with a wood fired heater and magnificent views over the property. The staff were super friendly and made the whole dining experience one to remember. The food was outstanding and the house wines that we tried we delicious. Overall this was a truly memorable lunch that we enjoyed there. We will definitely go again next time we are in the region.

Kazzi Beach Greek


Alex dined on Sun, 17th Mar 2019 (9)

Had a light lunch there by the beach. Beautiful traditional Greek food and local specialties. The people are great, the decor is awesome and overall it is probably the best coffee / lunch spot in Balmoral. Have been before and will definitely be back again.

A truly memorable experience. The quality and technical skill put into the food is exceptional. the staff were extremely professional, friendly and added to the whole experience for us. We will definitely be back as the menu is constantly changing. It is most certainly a hidden gem in Sydney's dining set.

As far as fine dining degustation menus go, this was outstanding. Every course was delicious and we all had different favourites which shows that several of the courses were really outstanding. The pricing for this type of dining was very reasonable and the staff there were very attentive, polite and welcoming. Evey one of us commented that we look forward tomgoing there again. Outstanding!
