Southeast Asian
Sitting proudly in the heart of Elsternwick is this unique venue with an Indochine inspired menu of delicious food and drinks.

The exotic greenery and styling seen throughout Bang Bang’s gorgeous indoor spaces flows out to a relaxed outdoor courtyard sitting adjacent to the local park.

Despite the venue’s bustling city vibe, Bang Bang is a laid-back social hotspot for locals in the South East.

Please note any patrons that book in for “outdoor” or “counter” seating will be sat outdoors & will be exposed to the elements. All outdoor tables use Me&u, an order at the table QR code ordering system. All bookings made on either “standard” or “high top” seating are completely undercover or inside the venue.

    food was only warm and not hot. Felt like it sat on the pass a while before getting to the table. Flavours were great as always but temperature of food 9all of the food) let it down.

    Outstanding service and the food was sublime! So many delicious flavours in the banquet we had! On a lovely mild night it was gorgeous sitting next to the open large windows and looking out to the green spaces and we also enjoyed a drink outside before heading inside to eat at the restaurant section- thoroughly recommend!

    Excellent menu, friendly service . Tasty cocktails. Great place to celebrate an occasion. Corn ribs, popcorn cauliflower and the barramundi was the highlight. Great deserts too. Ok wine list, although could nudge a few more premium selections. Will be back.

    Good quality produce! But the drinks service needs attention, even if it is busy which it wasn't. I had to ask for my beer five times from three different staff. Reletivly noisy. Good selection of beer, wine and spirits on menu. Staff on floor were happy and helpful 80 percent of the time. I wouldn't go racing back, but I will go back eventually and hopefully when I do, I can order a drink from staff who have a sense of urgency and reliability. Not just a big smile. 7/10

    Drinks are too expensive; Food is outstanding however, 2 people in the party think that their bad sleep may have been due to MSG in something? If MSG is used, we should be informed beforehand

    I’ve come here a few times now for dinner and I have enjoyed each time. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take any photos as I’m always having a long awaited catch up but I can definitely vouch the food is delicious! It’s a nice space and the service is pretty quick and friendly. All their sauces are so tasty and go very well with the dishes! I would recommend for starters to get the kingfish sashimi (I always ask for extra sauce, it’s sooo good - tangy with a little bit of heat), the wontons (again the sauce is delish, also tangy & perfect with the wontons), & corn ribs. For mains the barramundi is cooked really well and the half duck is huge, I would order a side of baos to go with them and a side of the slaw is the perfect accompaniment for the mains and the roti is a good side to mop up the sauces. For 2 people I would go for 3 starters, a main & 2 sides and you should be nicely satisfied. Not the most affordable place for Asian fusion. It costs around $170 with 2 cocktails plus have a surcharge of 10% at weekends. It is delicious though and I will be back again.

    Service staff very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu. Nice, casual feel to the restaurant and noise level ok to be able to chat and hear each other. All dishes we had were great...popcorn cauliflower, mini tuna burgers, pork skewers (consistency of a perfect kofta), duck and crispy jasmine rice with bao buns. A wonderful dining experience. Only thing to be aware of is that you pay a bit extra for really good service and the quality of food.

    The ordering and payment system is very restrictive. I had to load my credit card details when booking then ordering. I asked if I could use the original credit card input. The staff did not know. A person ? Manager came up to me and immediately said “what is your problem”. When I asked can I use the credit card already sent and he said “no darling” in a condescending manner. This was an unpleasant experience. I made my order, paid. I wanted to order more but did not want to go through the process. Staff kept coming up asking if the food was ok, did we want more but I was not going to reorder on line. I am a semi regular client but will not return.

    A lovely circular entrance sets the mood with this Indochine delight. The wait staff couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. The sumptuous white king fish sashimi with spicy green sauce was Devine as was the perfectly steamed barramundi with a side apple infused eggplant. The ambiance and the service was excellent. A lovely dining experience was enjoyed. Thank You Bang Bang RC!
