    This restaurant was something of a surprise. Much better inside than I expected. Food was a bit different in a good way. Service was OK but nothing exceptional. The prices are high especially for the drinks.

    Empty when we arrived and waited 10 minutes to be seated. Serving sizes extremely small. $5 for a bao that was done in two small bites. Chilli rating poor. Chose some with a spicy rating and hardly tasted any

    Beautiful decorated hall. Lovely fusion food. Noodles were well balanced and loved the squid entree although a bit more charred and cooked would’ve been nice. Bao sliders were disappointing very small small soft shell crab and not much else, the pork slider had one piece of kimchi and nothing else, but sloppy on this one. Overall we were happy.

    Great atmosphere, lovely waitress and delicious food. Flat noodles with chicken was well balanced with crunchy broccoli and not too too tasty. We’ve had noodles from hawker kitchen before and theirs was inedible salty. The squid was fresh and grilled a bit on the light side so still quite raw. The bao was interesting very little salad and texture for $5, bit on the bland side. Overall I enjoyed our dining experience my only suggestion would be to improve their rice as I found the rice to be told dry to eat when it got cold which didn’t take long!!

    The banquet was a good variety of food but some things could of been cooked and seasoned better. Sauces on table were too runny. Service was good, server was very attentive. There were kids running around near our table which was a little disruptive.

    It was great! We ordered the banquet but because we didn't get all our dishes in the end because our seating time was up, the restaurant reduced the cost accordingly. Wait staff were fantastic! Will return because loved the food, drinks and vibe in general.

    Food was slow to arrive but it was worth the wait. The barranmundi was cooked just right with enough tasty broth to go with rice. The crispy belly pork was awesome with right seasoning and crispy skin. The tea smoked duck had a nice smokey flavour and goes well with rice. Good deal with The Fork deal.

    The service was fantastic and the food was generally very good. It was especially worth it with the 50% off! The only thing would be the spicy indicator was not very accurate, we ordered something with 3 chillis and it was mild but something else with 1-2 chilli was more spicy! Overall it was a great night~

About the restaurant

The bar for beer halls has been raised

Found right amongst the hustle and bustle of Sydney Road, Brunswick Mess Hall is the perfect place for those in need of a place to meet friends for a drink or a feed. The heritage listed hall, resembling an upside down arc, is broken up into private dining and function areas, the beer hall itself and a glowing emerald bar and cocktail area. For playful cocktails, boutique and tap beers, and hearty, spicy Asian food designed to pass around, Brunswick Mess Hall fits the bill.

Best dish: Seared tuna with onion dressing rolled in cracked black pepper
