    My favorite restaurant in Melbourne. I always allow them to bring the food rather than order from the menu. The surprise adds to the experience.

    I love Coda, it’s my favourite place to eat in Melbourne. It never disappoints! The food is an amazing mix of western and Asian cuisine so you can select a meal to suit whatever you feel like! I also really like the way the menu is arranged, you can have a really satisfying meal without feeling like you are going to explode! Special mention for the Pandan Lamington - it was AWESOME. I hope they never take it off the menu!! The service is always amazing and the wine list is comprehensive. If you are on the fence about going to Coda you should definitely go, you won’t regret it!

    Everything about Coda was great from the initial welcome to the food to the service all the way through! The Coda team know every detail of the menu and I loved that they served the food in the order that you could enjoy it the most. Service really is exceptional as is the food and I would highly recommend!

    We really enjoyed our lunch visit. Great service even better food, which was topped off with some enjoyable drinks. My friends and I will certainly return soon because there were so many things we want to try from the menus.

    Wine overpriced but best service around (I dine with my friends once a month at fine dining restaurants). Even though there wasn't a degustation menu, our waiter put together tasting dishes for us. It was delightful. Nothing was too much trouble for him and, even when he had to leave to go to a nearby sister restaurant to help with a crisis, he let us know and introduced us to our replacement waiter. Very impressive. Made us feel special.

    Service was fantastic but we were a little disappointed with some of the dishes we ordered. Of the 6 dishes we ordered 2 were amazing and the other 4 were average (but tasty). We had very high expectations of Coda and would still recommend going there but there are other restaurants we would recommend visiting first.

    THis was my third visit to Coda and once again they did not disappoint. Loved the food and a big highlight was the service from all the wait staff that looked after us so well. We will be back next time we visit Melbourne.
