I went to Global restaurant for the first time with my brother, sister in law and nine year old son. It seemed like a busy but very casual and relaxed place. Not the sort of place you go for a romantic dinner but good for families, friends or a very casual date. The waitress was friendly and gave genuine looking... More

I'm not usually very fussy and do not tend to leave bad feedback but I feel I must say something about my experience here. The food came out very quickly but seemed rushed and we had undercooked vegetables but overcooked noodles? We had the green thai curry which was more like sludge more than an actual curry sauce and cold... More

Global Vegetarian has been one of my favourite places to eat healthy food. It is a family owned business very friendly and all the food is cooked fresh.

Visited this cafe in June 2013. Prices are reasonable, but food is distinctly sub-standard. Surroundings are basic indeed. No care is taken to cook the dishes to anything resembling their Asian names or origins. If you wish to fill your stomach, OK. Anything beyond that cannot be recommended.

Global is great for someone like myself and you cannot argue about the value for money provided. The size of the main dishes is HUGE and they are certainly tasty. You do not go to Global for the service, it can take time to get your meal. However, the food is good and well worth eating.

The place is plain with wooden tables and chairs, not a lot of atmospher but good clean tucker. BYO wine with no corkage charge. No table... More

I've frequentent to this restaurant often while living in Melbourne. The food has always been fresh and the servings plentiful. I would recommend one dish as you may struggle with this if you are a normal eater. The specials are always a taste pleaser and I dare say that they are fast and efficient. It's not a pretty place, but... More

I have been here once and the service was really really slow. However the meal I ordered - the laksa - was beautiful. In fact, one of the best laksas ever. Lots of vegies, smooth curry taste and not too noodly.
