Our family went there for dinner. The waiters on roller skaters were very skilful and novel. The live entertainment by the waiters added to the authenticity of the diner atmosphere. The food was good and the service excellent. We agreed we would go back

Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and
emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with
specialty stores selling just about everything. The
famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and
vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor
