Been looking all around Melbourne and yet to find a better tasting laksa anywhere. The bonus is that this is a no-frills restaurant in the CBD which specialises in cheap eats with plenty of flavour. I love it that you can get a GREAT lunch...More

It was a good size so pretty good value for money. The chicken was tender, and I liked their ginger-spring onion garnish. The rice was a bit overcooked, unfortunately, and there was some crunchy bits, but otherwise all quite tasty.

It's always a good bet when the place is packed with Asian students- that it's going to be cheap & filling. Coconut House doesn't fail on either of those. It's relatively small so they opened up a second store, Coconut House 2, a few shops...More

While recently in Melbourne my brother was so excited to take us to Coconut House for Laska. So happy he did, the laska was amazing. Super fresh, super tasty & super cheap!! Would return to Melbourne just to eat here!!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
