    Food was great , came out quickly . The staff were really rude . I had made a mistake entering my table number and the waiter was really sarcastic and rude about it . My friends and I were pretty mortified by his attitude.

    Decent food at high prices in an elegant building that is cold and uncomfortable. All the makings of a good restaurant idea, but comes together to be mediocre at best.

    The quality and food options were poor. The reduced selection provided few options. Wont be keen to come back to eat here. Its been a fabulous restaurant previously but now its not very exciting. My chicken curry was really poor - the flavour and chicken pieces were awful

    The cocktails and banquet were pretty good and the atmosphere was nice. The beef short rib however was predominantly gristle and fat. It wasn’t enjoyable at all. I recommend the scallops and seared tuna. They were much nicer.

    The food was great and nicely presented. Staff were friendly but could be more attentive. Major problem was the long delay between the courses but considering the COVID-19 situation and the pressure it puts on restaurants we didn’t make a fuss about it. Would definitely go again soon.

    Great ambience and staff and covid precautions were good! The meat could be more tender but the flavours were outstanding! Would definitely recommend this place.

    Food was excellent 10/10. Shame about the very unfriendly welcome by a female staff member, rude & unfriendly . Brought outside to sit in the cold for dinner, without being told the table was outside. Sat freezing our backsides off while eating dinner. In no rush to come back. Very disappointed with the service

    We had the eggplant, prawnballs, barramundi,potato salad, pad thai all of which were yummy. The only disappointing dish was the green curry. Great atmosphere. Happy hour between 5-7. Didn't get a menu and by the time we got the waiters attention I was told I missed out at 7.01pm.

    Gorgeous looking place. Yummy cocktails Some of the dishes were yummy (pad Thai, baos) and others disappointing (spring rolls, tofu). Liked that we could takeaway what we didn’t finish.. Staff didn’t come around to ask if we wanted to order more food or drink

    Food was great, we chose the banquet so had a selection of items. Service was a little slow and no bill splitting is a pain. Still one of my favs in Brunswick tough.

    Food was really good! Super tasty and yum! Price is a little more on the expensive side, but great for sharing and going out with friends or colleagues.

    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.

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


Noodle, , Valentine's Day
