Along with the relatively new Del Posto 2409, Steam is the classiest of Rye's restaurants, and it is a survivor in an area of fickle patronage and high turnover. I'm not sure how long Steam has been in Rye, but it must be close to ten years. It's a popular place, and rightly so. The decor is something straight out... More

We were lucky enough to arrive at opening and grab a table. We ordered the oysters straight from the tank, calamari was amazing. By the time we got mains the place was packed so book early. Main was a barramundi cooked to perfection -next time we will try the degustation menu - food this good isn't cheap but well worth... More

Would say Steam would be one of my favourite restaurants on the Peninsula. The food was excellent, the service excellent (the waitress explained the menu and recommended certain dishes) which was extremely helpful. We chose the 7 course banquet (sounds a lot but you share each course.) from the first course of sashimi scallops to the last course of Nasi... More

Great meal, small dishes of the tastiest food. The restaurant is very plain but the food is excellent. We had a great dining experience, went on a Thursday night after it was recommended by the B & B we were staying at (Sunny Side Up). Every dish was memorable, but the best was the Coconut Creme Brulee. We shared all... More

Not what i would call an unforgettable meal. Despite all the great reviews my partner and i were somewhat unimpressed with the $60.00 pp share meal. It consisted of 7 courses. The first a crab dish with a taste of lime juice that completely over powered the subtle taste of the crab. The second sashimi scallops that were delightful. The... More

A Friday night of a long weekend so they were busy (may not be the best time to visit). On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly staff member and then passed onto another staff member who guided us to our table and then disappeared. After 25 minutes without being asked if we even wanted to order a drink... More

Steam has entirely ruined me for all dining experiences because I only want to eat Asian fusion, and I only want it to be from steam. I may move to Rye. If you don't get the pork bao, you will regret it for the rest of your life.

Description
Steam is a funky modern Asian eatery that offers tasty food, friendly service and a picturesque setting opposite the beach in Rye.
Our style is based around share plates and interactive dining so you can either choose a little or a lot and enjoy a range of flavors from our extensive menu. Our influences range from Japanese, Chinese, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia and we're not afraid of a bit of spice!

Our live oyster tank is a feature of the restaurant, highlighting our focus on fresh seafood and produce. We offer selections for most dietary needs and are available for group booking and functions upon request.
