I love Dandelion! It's my go to place for special occasions, and somewhere I will always take visitors to, especially if they are from interstate or overseas. The food is just wonderful, the service excellent, the ambience terrific. You have to book early, as it's always busy, to get the table you want, and it's certainly and expensive place, but... More

Visited for a crab meal that was fantastic. Having been told it was a Thai restaurant I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of crab we had (challenges any I have had in Chinatown, Singapore or Hong Kong, no joke). If you love crab, give this a go.

I have been very keen to try this restaurant for a while, so I booked for our wedding anniversary, We had been told it was on the pricey side and went ready to enjoy the experience, not to be deterred by this. We were not disappointed. The food and service was fantastic. Reflecting a modern Vietnamese style of food and... More

During our recent visit to Melbourne, our friends took us to this tiny Thai/Viet kind of fusion restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice, seats were comfortable, service was good and the food was sooo good. Even though, there was a little worm inside the green salad leaves and ended up on my husbands plate while he was using one of... More

We love this restaurant - brilliant food, fresh flavors and wonderful service. You need to book early as it can be hard to get a table. We try and order differently each time but we definitely have our favourites; the fish dishes are beautiful and the pork hock was an absolute winner last night. Don't think we've ever ordered anything... More

We'd been waiting for a good reason to splash out on a meal at Dandelion. An overseas guest gave us the perfect excuse & we were not disappointed. From the outside Dandelion looks tiny but it's deceptive as it's very long and narrow with the kitchen at the back, bar at the front. Light, bright and somewhat minimalist in decor... More

Lunch on a sunny Sunday to celebrate a special birthday. Four people, good sized table, delightful atmosphere. Extensive menu with mouthwatering list of choices. We selected four entrees and four mains, and shared them all. Lovely Italian white wine, and a Hanoi Beer for me topped it off. The food was superb, wonderfully presented, large portions and delivered at timely... More
