Melbourne's Cheltenham restaurants cover a multitude of bases
Melbourne's Cheltenham restaurants reflect both eastern and western influences. Look out for contemporary Asian eateries like Golden Thai on Bernard Street, with its menu of pan-fried king prawns, stir-fried calamari and roast duck flavoured with soy, lime and basil. Alternatively, for a taste of la dolce vita, try places such as Saltimbocca on Charman Road, whose Italian movie-style décor is the perfect backdrop for seasonal vegetarian risotto and spaghetti marinara. Meanwhile The Groove Train on the Nepean Highway offers gourmet takes on fast food favourites including pizzas, burgers, fish and chips and chicken parmigiana in a smart yet industrial setting.
