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.

I can't get enough of this restaurant. The food and the cocktails are always a treat. This place never fails to provide flavour and delicious dishes. There hasn't been a single dish that I haven't been wowed by. Can't wait to go back again.

Fantastic bottomless brunch. Such good value for money with a variation of courses to suit the whole party. The service was exceptional with a big shout out and thanks to Gabby who went above and beyond for our table and really made the experience what it was! A true asset to the Bang Bang team!!

Food was average. Nothing to write home about. Terrible choices brought out as part of banquet. I wouldn’t recommend the feed me banquet.
Atmosphere and view were fantastic.

The food was ok, but nothing special, and very expensive for what it was. The service was over attentive at first, and then went completely the other way, where we were left waiting for ages. There was a big bone in my fish, which they weren’t even apologetic about.
All in all, we wouldn’t go back.

Mates date night.
Roast Duck, Beef & Papaya salad was amazing.
Perfect hear in the salad & the meat was melt in your mouth.

Spiced Apple Turnover with coconut ice cream was the perfect finish to our meal.

Ohh our waiter was bloody amazing. Young man knew his stuff.

It had been years since going to Bang Bang and to be honest it didn't impress me, however I went there for a girlfriends birthday and it was amazing so I booked their sampling menu last Saturday as my partner had not been. He absolutely loved it, the food was great, service lovely and overall the experience ...he wants to go back and I will be going with him.

Don't hesitate to go for any occasion, there was a hens party and baby shower happening when we were there and the noise was never an issue. We sat in the window (hi top table booking) and it was a great place for people watching whilst loving each morsel we devoured.

What a brilliant day we had doing your bottomless brunch. Sooooo good and such ridiculously good value. The food was delicious, the drinks indeed bottomless (we'd assumed you'd serve very slowly etc to avoid giving us too much but this definitely not the case!) It was very noisy but everyone was having the greatest of times. Our waitress was next level awesome and there were hugs all around on leaving. Thanks for a fantastic day.

I'd heard about Bang Bang from several people of differing ages and I agree, it was a fantastic experience. The staff were delightful and were very helpful, the food was very nice and there was an excellent choice. The wines we chose were very enjoyable (although the staff members we spoke to could not really advise in this area). The four of us are all fans!

If the drinks had any alcohol in them that would have been amazing.
If you have to fill a menu up with bowls of fries then there is something wrong .
I had high expectations

The $59 banquet has changed in the last couple of months giving you a $ selection of dishes versus samplers of various dishes- it defeats the purpose of a banquet. Not sure based on this that we would order the banquet again. The food was nice, service was good when it was quieter but when it got busy our empty main dishes were left sitting at our table for a long time before being cleared.

The banquet was not as we had previously experienced; there were significantly fewer courses; and there was nothing substantial. What we did have was delicious. Excellent cocktails.
