Cocktail Bar
Bhang is a unique warehouse cocktail bar serving contemporary Indian fare off Sydney Rd in Brunswick exploring the many different flavours of India through food and drink. We have a cocktail for every occasion and taste, and dishes from all corners of India such as the Mangalorean inspired 'Kori Gassi', 'Mushroom Xacuti' from Goa and the Keralan Istoo.

Bhang has an ample selection of vegan and gluten free items that compete equally in flavour and popularity with our charcoal meats and tandoor dishes. Bhang's wine and craft beer list showcase local producers, while our Indian inspired cocktails are an absolute must try.

    Really conflicted. The food was great, as always, but the staff were really inattentive. Even when there were not many people left we had to seek out staff to order dessert, get more drinks etc.

    Bhang is our go to for all our big days. Birthdays, Valentine's, Promotions! Fantastic concoctions of cocktails. Lot of care towards flavours, balance and authenticity. The foods always a hit. Try the spinach pakoras and chicken kori gassi.

    Service and drinks were great. Unfortunately our food seemed like it had been reheated up to a lukewarm temperature and didn't taste freshly prepared. Disappointing because the food use to be awesome.

    Service was relatively good and quite friendly except it was hard to get ahold of their attention from where we were seated at. The menu’s design was not great, difficult to read and did not have great variety. Food wise, it was tricky as we’ve specifically requested for mild (or essentially not hot), but still came out rather spicy/ hot. As for the beef ribs (pretty much the only thing that isn’t the mint sauce and wasn’t hot), it had good texture but was mediocre on taste. Garlic naan is quite nice. The only reason we weren’t even more upset was because we decided to try Bhang on the Tuesday Thali for $25 (although we also ordered some à la carte to try). Overall it wasn’t a the best experience but also wasn’t the worse. Will not revisit nor recommend.

    Good food especially enjoyed the entree / starters. Good friendly service. Decent wine list that’s not super expensive and a great range of cocktails. Got a bit noisy with a loud family group but thems the breaks. Would go back.

    I was not very happy with the seating arrangements. I did find the service pretty quick and the staff really good. The food was not good but the naans were great. I also liked the cocktail menu which was not the same boring one.

    Cool funky place with good priced drinks on a Wednesday night but unfortunately the food lacks genuine Indian flavour and the beef ribs were so oily it made my partner feel ill. Portion sizes were great, no complaints there and the garlic naan was delicious but that's were the flavour ended. Fantastic service, our waitress was very friendly, wish we could say we're coming back. Great venue for a drinks catch up with friends

    A new local find that has been around for a while. Luckily we saw a review that alerted us to its existence just off Sydney Rd near the tram depot. Food is a modern take on Indian classics. Cocktails made from spirits infused with spices and herbs are to die for, too good really!

    We arrived at 7:55 pm for a reservation at 8 pm. We were asked to wait 5 minutes but landed up getting a table only at 8:30 pm. Which we did not mind as we were having a good time. But there was 1 staff member who was EXTREMELY rude who told us to leave if we did not want to wait. She said quite a lot of nasty things to one of our friends and I'm sorry but that is not how you treat a customer who has made a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes to get the table! I have worked in hospitality as well and you do not drive away customers just because you can't handle the pressure- and that is exactly what she did. She asked us to leave and told us that we didn't have to wait around for the table. Apart from that one staff member it was a good experience overall
