Dinner Reviews: Jimmy Grants | Le Bon Ton | Funky Curry | Sahara | Hell of the North | Estivo | Jaisalmer Palace | Rice Paper | Burma Lane

Jimmy Grants
Absolutely adore Jimmy Grants. Consistently good, lightning fast and reasonably priced, it ticks all the boxes.
The grain salad is a must-have.
One of the best souvlakis in town. The pita bread is a stand-out.

Le Bon Ton
Went as a group of four and enjoyed the experience. The American BBQ items are what this place is famous for and it certainly satisfied.
The burgers are great too.
Don't go past dessert! The pecan pie is the real deal.

Funky Curry
Cheap but not necessarily cheerful. It's foodcourt standard. So if you're expecting that, you'll be happy.

The banquet is seriously bang for your buck.
A great place for Friday night drinks and a casual dinner.

Hell of the North
Named after the infamous Paris-Roubaix bike race famous for rough terrain, Hell of the North serves a European influenced bistro menu designed for sharing.
Great for casual dining and drinking with friends.

Estivo is a sophisticated Kew restaurant. The menu features delicious Italian food best indulged in with wine. 
We enjoyed the comfortable surrounds and warm service and cannot wait to return.

Jaisalmer Palace
The wait staff here are great - friendly, warm and willing to help. The food is very well-priced and offers the soundest bang for your buck. We recommend the eggplant dish which is the house special. Other items on the menu are not bad but far from exceptional.

Rice Paper Vietnamese Restaurant
A reliable spot in the Melbourne CBD for Vietnamese food. The food is fresh and flavoursome and all around the $10 mark.

Burma Lane
From the folks behind Red Spice Road, Burma Lane serves contemporary Burmese cuisine.
While we thought it lacked the Red Spice Road wow-factor, the food was enjoyable. Simple but executed well and most certainly showcased the different flavours of Burma which amalgamates various cultures. If you like South East Asian cuisine (Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian) chances are, you'll enjoy the food here.
