Four of us went to Bistro 1947 for dinner mid-week. The place was well laid out and inviting as was the owner, a young Punjabi gentleman. He helped us select dishes for our meal and stayed to have a chat when we asked a few questions. The food was great and the servings were plentiful. We plan to go back for their parathas!!
One of Wantirna’s most trusted South Asian restaurants, Bistro 1947 is a standout in terms of flavour and quality.
