As usual the Embassy Special (burger with the lot plus chips and drink) hits the spot after a 2.00am finish at work.

I love Embassy Cafe. Great burgers and steak sandwiches. Ambience is exactly what you would expect for a taxi cafe, but the staff are friendly and the food is good. No EFTPOS, although there is an ATM outside the front door.

It was about midnight on a Monday we had been to an event since about 3pm with no food and we were looking for somewhere to go. One of the guys suggested the taxi depot. We were very surprised at the quality of the food....More

Great friendly staff. The burgers are always good. The dim sims are to die for. Hot chocolate is great. This place has it right and has not changed since the 70's

Been coming here since the '70s.... Nothing changes here and 24/7 it's always a great feed with wonderful caring staff. Supplement your meal with a 2x steamed dimmy entree!!!!!

Open 24hrs the Embassy cafe is a very convenient cafe located on the western edge of the city. The food is not high class by any means but is better than the local "Late night Kebab"

The embassy axi cafe is a cafe of yesteryear. It reminded me of cafes from my youth with Italian TV playing on the wall, smokers enmasse, and average coffee and meals. Melbourne 50 years ago and yet I liked it. Must be the nostalgia kicking...More

Embassy is our Saviour. What a aesthetically pleasing palace of dim sim joy. No place on earth harnesses the dim sim cooking powers like Embassy. Ancient Double cooking techniques are obviously put in play in that magical cooking den of brutality........Steamed..........and Then Fried......how would think...More
