    Best meal I’ve had in a while... best laksa potentially ever. Service was good but had a few things they could iron out. Was a sham some menu items were not available

    Although the dining experience was ok, the cuisine was not authentic Malaysian, hence disappointing. The dishes were small for the price paid.

    Really enjoyed my time at Merah. Food is really good, service was great. Great to go to a place that pays attention to diners drinks and making sure if one runs out they ask if they'd like another. Only disappointment was 3 menu items I saw online and wanted to order were crossed out and unavailable.

    Very good Malaysian food with a modern twist. Setting is a nice open cool cafe feel. Wine list is short but good. The staff are attentive and friendly. And you can also buy take-away jars of their yummy sambals. All prices are quite reasonable.

    What a wonderful little restaurant! Service and decor was fantastic, and the food and wine was reasonably priced (even without the discount). The soft-shell crab bao was absolutely to die for, and the beef rendang was so flavourful yet surprisingly lighter than you’d normally imagine. Really great place, will definitely be back!

    The restaurant has a nice vibe and decor and pleasant music, but tables and seats are a bit tight with little privacy. I arrived late, but they were kind enough to call me and hold my table. It took long for the waitress to take my order (no contact for 15 min.) The dishes were well prepared and presented: Chilli Oil Dumplings (good, but pricey at $14 for 4 bites), Soft Shell Crab bao (tasty, but small, $8), Roti Cani (perfect roti, tasty curry, $14), Jackfruit curry (duck unfortunately replaced by (little) chicken, quite small portion for $25). Leftovers were kindly provided in takeaway containers.

    Trying out this new joint at northcote and wow we were blown. Absolutely love the ambience and the concept of the food which were mostly vegan or vegetarian options. We will be back to try other things!

    Food and staff were really good. Can be a bit noisy with music playing and tables pretty close together.

    The stand out feature of this restaurant is the excellence of the food. The quality of the food demonstrates a sophisticated understanding of how to integrate the flavours of the various ingredients

    Rendang is the best in Melbourne and the green beans are very addictive. More comfortable chairs would be good, they’re form over function. Great service and delicious food.

    Very delicious Malaysian food, only thing that could be improved on is the uncomfortable wooden stools!

    Prompt and friendly service, the starters were tasty and the mains were just as good. We went on a mid-week night and though it wasn't busy, the staff attended to all our needs quickly and efficiently. We will definitely go back.
