Three of us dined at Botherambo for the second time, however we were disappointed to see that close to half the dishes shown online had been removed from the menu. According to staff the menu had changed during the week but hasn't been updated as yet on the website. This needs to be rectified as soon as possible. Specifically noticeable was the removal of several Vegan choices, leaving only a couple on the menu. Also on the night a few items were unavailable on the new current shortened menu. We ordered the Pomelo salad which was very tasty, prawn friend rice, a bit bland, vegetable curry, which was delicious, steamed rice, satay chicken, no satay sauce to speak of and roti with satay sauce, which was good. The cocktails were delicious. Ambience good and excellent service.
Great staff and amazing food. Good value for money too.
Service was good. Food was the same as every other modern Asian restaurant in Melbourne. Prices too expensive for the quality/level of food.
Great food and cocktails! Our waitress was amazing - cool venue with a fun vibe, well worth a visit !
The food was amazing but unfortunately the staff were very rude and not helpful. Despite having the restaurant almost to ourselves, the drinks service was slow and the order's were taken incorrectly several times. When we would alert the waitress to the incorrect order, we'd get a response of rolling her eyes and huffing. I'd come back for the food but if I saw this particular waitress working there, I'd turn back out the door.
delicious food, really accommodating to one vegetarian diner on the feed me menu, kind staff, good service
Excellent quality and freshness with intricate blend of flavours. Clearly prepared with care.

The food is amazing, no complaints at all. We made a 5:30pm booking as we had a 8pm show at Rod Laver. Plenty of time, right? Wrong! We chose the feed me menu and the food can to a halt after the (plentiful) entrees. At 7pm, we asked where the main was and was told it was on its way..... We watched as tables seated after us got their mains...... When it finally arrived, the main was great, however we ran out of time for the dessert that was included. We received a $5pp discount in lieu of dessert. At no point were there any apologies for forgetting us. Overall great food, mediocre service.
Excellent as always. Botherambo is consistently good and this visit was no exception. Food, service, etc is outstanding. Just the music is too loud forcing patrons to get louder and louder in order to converse.
Tasty & trending and quiet over lunchtime. Service was good but wasn’t challenging over a quiet Thursday lunch. Good without being excellent. Would go back if around the area.
Everything was absolutely delicious the service was great. Had an amazing night out. Highly recommend
There was a wait on the food because they were a kitchen staff down but this wasn’t communicated. Had we known we would’ve ordered differently
Amazing food and cocktails! Been there twice in the space of a month. That's how good it is!
Amazing staff who were both friendly and professional. Gorgeous atmosphere and a well accompanied menu at a great price.
Loved the whole experience. Will be back soon.
Boss expresso martinis 👌👌
Great service. Food was delicious. would highly recommend this restaurant
Excellent and Delectable Food. Superb Service!!!
While the noise level may have been a tad loud, it was still functional
Excellent food, fast service and friendly staff. We will be back!
Pe concert booking - which was advised prior and on arrival- ordered first tapas which arrived quickly. Second order was followed up three times and cancelled after the sting 35 mins. Food and staff awesome - will go back but service will need to improve
Excellent food. Very fresh, good choice and lots of different flavours. Right next to the Corner Hotel for dinner before concerts too!
Service is friendly, attentive and accommodating. The food was excellent and the wine reasonably priced. A great place to catch up with friends for a drink or for a meal. This is the second time I have eaten at Botherambo and I have found the food and service consistently good.
The food was lovely with many share plates, the service was just spot on. Couldnt fault it one little bit. i'd come back again and again! Amazing
The online booking system does not alert you straight up that bookings are for an hour and a half, this is not enough time to enjoy a meal and a chat with who ever you are dining with. If I had known it was such a short time I would not have booked, most restaurants allow 2 hours.
It was an unpleasant dining experience with the staff hurrying us along all the time, interupting our conversation. Will not go back and will not recommend.
Embarrassing experience when trying to dine overseas friends and impress them. Being told with 30min left on our seating that we won’t have enough time to order and eat a curry for the main as there was another booking coming earlier. Then have the waitress rudely wipe down the table and ask if she can get us the bill was horrible. Felt pushed to eat quickly and to get out ruined the experience of eating good food for everyone. We then left and went to kekou around the corner and had a fabulous experience. Won’t be going back to botherambo
Service was lovely, but the food wasn't great - pretty mediocre Asian fusion.
The food and atmosphere is great at this place! We will keep going back.
Awesome everything! We had the feed me- great value and delicious!
Excellent food, service & ambiance. My group of 8 people had a wonderful time and would recommend this restaurant to everyone. We will definitely be coming back.
Delicious food at reasonable prices.
Great for groups. Would highly reccomend.
Brilliant atmosphere and setting. Really beautiful venue. Nice and quiet on Saturday lunch time, and as always, great service, and incredible food - so tasty and well presented. Will be coming back. Been there 3 times now, and it's been consistently amazing. Will be back very soon again!
Botherambo was a fine choice for pre-football final snacks and drinks. It was relatively uncrowded when we arrived, but filled up quite quickly. We were happy that we had reserved a table using the Open Table app. The allowed time of 90 minutes was sufficient. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful. The space is uncluttered and modern, and despite the hard surfaces, not too noisy for easy conversation. Most of the dishes are designed for sharing, and we found our selection tasty and satisfying. Prices are moderate, and serving sizes are average rather than generous. We chose to share Crispy Pork belly, Pad Thai chicken dumplings, and Massaman Beef Cheek Curry. All were well prepared and attractively presented, with a good balance of spices. We left well nourished and refreshed to enjoy an exciting preliminary Final at the nearby MCG..
Food was pretty good. Nothing amazing apart from the duck spring rolls. However we had a French waiter who was very rude and responded very angrily when she was informed there was an issue with a beer that was ordered. It is not the customers problem, nor should they be made to feel bad if they order a drink and there is an issue with it. Overall I wouldn’t go back and won’t be recommending the place to anyone.
Fantastic place - I’ll be back with more peeps to introduce!
This place catered for our unusual booking and did a wonderful job. The staff on the floor were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. It was a great place for our international visitors.
I had a fantastic night at Botherambo with a friend, the food was AMAZING and the service was undeniably phenomenal. Will definitely be going back again and again! Would recommend the cauliflower dish!
First time at Botherambo, great atmosphere followed by great food and drinks!!!! We will be back!
Fabulous food, friendly and helpful waitstaff. Great cocktail list and a very upbeat vibe. Can be a little noisy at times but if you’re heading out for the night it’s a great place to start
The food was really good and tasty. The portions however were a little small. It can get a bit noisy, but the service and staff were great.
We love coming to Botherambo, the food is always tasty and exciting . The service is excellent as we are usually going on to an event at Rod Laver or in the city and we have plenty of time to eat and have a drink. The staff always recommend dishes that suit all our needs and some with dietary restrictions are easily catered for. We will be back very soon.
LOVED IT. First of all the service was amazing, our waiter was so friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious too and they were able to cater to a number of dietaries.
