Rice Paper Scissors CBD
A dream to open a place that embraces the well-loved style of Asian street food. A place with no rules but to have fun with a beer in hand… a place that weary travellers to South East Asia know and love.
Way back in 2013, the boys fulfilled that crazy idea of opening a restaurant where you only used your hands to eat. The food was great, the cocktails… even greater, but best of all were the amazing experiences shared. Food tastes better this way.

Beautiful food, large variety especially if you don’t eat meat or are vegan. Cocktails are delightful
Absolutely amazing can’t wait to go again.
Great portion sizes
Good meal over all. Great value for the price. Beef cheek curry was great but sauce had bit more of Italian feel (very tomatoey) rather than Thai.
Highly recommend. We were on a time limit and the staff made sure our food came out quickly.
Service was slow, took ages to get a drink and order food. When we got the food it was excellent. Very good value for money. The new location with the lit up carpark for the view is not as good as the one on Liverpool street was
We had the vegan banquet. And everything was absolutely delicious!
Great food, another little Melbourne gem. We will certainly be back again.
Staff make the place! Waiter Alex went above and beyond to make our night perfect.
Friendly & efficient service. Tasty, well presented food. Thank you.
Such a great combination of dishes and so tasty! Just the love the fusion food aspect of the restaurant!
Lost a star as the bill didn’t come, had to ask for it, still didn’t come, so had to ask for it again! And music was too loud. Food brilliant
We were really disappointed with our dinner. Service was slow, had no sensible order in the service of the dishes and we were left feeling very underwhelmed and disappointed. Will not be back unfortunately.
The food and cocktails were amazing! The coconut cups are a must try. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Service was very poor so unfortunately it ruined the experience …. The female waiter wasn’t overtly rude but she didn’t smile once, skimmed through the menu (first timers) and seemed annoyed at us taking too long to decide our drinks order without any friendly suggestions or top picks. Good was divine though. Thanks
We enjoyed the experience very much. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. Overall the food was very good but we felt a couple of dishes could have packed a harder punch. We like spice! I would have otherwise given it 5 stars.
Food was delicious. Left feeling very satisfied. Service could not have been better. Overall a great experience.
The food was so delicious. Everything was well portioned . I love the idea of how the menu works. We got to try different things in smaller portions. We had a great night.
The team was super lovely. We were very well taken care of the whole evening.
Delicious fresh flavours, every dish enjoyable. Waiters wine knowledge was good
Friendly staff and delicious food.
Food took awhile to be served and portions were quite small. Service was good.
Food was great, great atmosphere and the place decoration was on point for a fusion Thailand place.
Quick service, delicious food, friendly staff! Cosy and funky restaurant!
Amazing food, just as amazing as it was pre covid times … interesting Asian flavours, done a bit differently
RPS is a favourite in the CBD of Melbourne. The food is always consistently very very good and the service is good as well.
Delicious menu and very accommodating for all dietary requirements. Everything we had Wes really nice.
Amazing service as always from my favourite waitress, Darsha! Great team, good vibes and delicious food! Always a good time in this lane way treat!
Service was a bit slow, so not the fault of the people actually working,but they seemed understaffed. Felt for the ones working and run off their feet.
Food was good, portions pretty small so wasn’t a massive meal overall as you would expect from 5 dishes and for the price.
Was misled by free cocktail for your birthday on website. Also poorly explained by night manager. Out of the five dishes we selected three were terrible especially the kangaroo. Extremely disappointed as the last time we were there it was sensational. Would be very hesitant to go there again
Having enjoyed the great service and exciting food at Rice Paper Sister before the pandemic, we were disappointed with the uninspired tastes of the dishes we ordered yesterday. While we really want to support our restaurants in these difficult times, we will not be returning to Rice Paper Scissors.
We shared 5 dishes. $45 per head. Only criticism is that we ordered 3 dishes that had similar sauces and taste. Would have been good to have had more feedback from waitstaff. Waiters recommendation of prawn sugar cane dish was the highlight.
Great food and good value! Not the best location but the hide it with the umbrella's which make it work!
My wife had been here and wanted to take me. I was very impressed, loved the pork suckling buns and crispy pork belly I'm particular and cocktails were on point!
The food was exceptional.. service friendly and accommodating.. we had such a wonderful time! The vibe was amazing!
Food was delicious the service was great. I would definitely go back.
Loved our share 5 dishes meal, so many yummy flavours. 5 out of 5 for flavour and great staff. Just feel $65 for a bottle of wine is too steep, that is my only complaint.
The best service I’ve received in Melbourne. Such lovely people. And the food was equally amazing.
Awesome food atmosphere and even better service 👏
Great Asian food done well and at an excellent price point. Service is fun, high energy and very accommodating which only adds to the vibe of this place. Cocktails are really good particularly the spicy margaritas. Only thing that lets ROS done is their wine selection, below average. Perhaps they could add one more red wine at a higher price point? Highly recommend!
The waiters were very friendly and helped us with our menu choices. They seemed happy to be back working the tables and ensured we had a great dining experience. The food was magnificent!
Always awesome, favourite go to with girlfriends after work
