    Don't do it, Poorly made Chinese food like in 80's country town. Servings small. Misrepresenting drinks-labelled some fancy cider brand and brought out a run of the mill Somersby cider. Worst was $5 for 1 bowl of rice. Usually charged per person but these animals had the audacity to charge per bowl. I challenged her on it and she snapped back that it's on the menu. I feel no guilt or regret if this review hurts their business. Absolutely disgraceful. Food court is better.

    It is a very nice experience to have a HK style dinner with the fresh seafood from Brisbane. The restaurant is clean and tidy. There are couple of rooms for small group. Owners are friendly and helpful. Finally, the price is very reasonable even in the tourist area.

    Food was good. We especially liked the crispy skin duck. Service was friendly & took a reasonable time in bringing food out. The only problem was that smoke from people smoking just outside the entrance got in the restaurant & was very unpleasant.

    Melbas Asian Seafood (Owner)

    Hi Michelle, we appreciate your comment. Thank you for letting us know about the smoking issues outside our entrance. Some people did ignore our sign and smoke illegally within 5 meters of a shop entrance. We cannot control that but we will pay attention to avoid this to happen.

    We booked Melba's to have the lobster banquet for $150 for two people. On arrival we were advised service would be slow due to it being busy, however there were many empty tables. We waited 20 minutes to receive our cocktails and order, at which point we were advised they didn't have the WA lobster, only fresh local lobster for $40 more. We found each item of the banquet quite disappointing; the lobster didnt come with noodles as advertised, and the sauce was underwhelming. The portion size of the other dishes were small and quite basic for the price. The desert was a banana fritter with ice-cream; the fritter was no more than a quarter of a small banana. In total our bill was $226; my partner and I felt our experience was not worth its value.

    Hi Bon, we are sorry to hear your dissatisfaction during your last visit. Our manager had warned you regarding slow expectancy because we were busy at that time even though you saw some empty tables. Whole hospitality industry are short of workers. We could only work to the capacity we could take. Our stock of the WA lobsters were sold out. That's way our manager offered you replacement of live SA lobster from the tank which was a lot expensive. We only charged $40 to cover the cost. The live SA lobster costed $160 already. It was the freshest to eat. We appreciated your patronage and comments.

    The roast duck was all bone. A lot of my table complained the meat was dry and hardly any sauce. I had garlic prawns. The prawns and vegetables themselves were exceptional but the sauce without flavour and not enough. The curried duck was lovely.

    Melbas Asian Seafood (Owner)
