Few places offer so many options to the Asian food aficionados like Melbourne does, and often the toughest event of the evening is the discussion about which one to go to. If you’re in the Docklands, then – like a motorcycle pyramid in Phnom Penh – one Cambodian stands above all the others. Bopha Devi is a restaurant that brings the spices of the streets of South East Asia to this plush part of the city – book a table now and head on over.
Asian food is one of the things that Melbourne does better than just about any other city in Australia, with huge Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese communities churning out curries, dim sum and pho to the hungry punters of the city. The cuisine of the Cambodian community is perhaps less well known, but at Bopha Devi, they are doing their best to publicise it. Get down to Rakaia Way in the Docklands to discover it for yourself.
Bopha Devi couldn’t be better situated: they’re easily accessed via North Melbourne or Southern Cross stations, and they lie in very close proximity to the Etihad Stadium on Rakaia Way in the Docklands. When you get there, tuck into some Cambodian favourites, such as Khmer yellow crepe, a pancake cooked with chicken mince, bean sprouts and mint. To guarantee at table at Bopha Devi, make a reservation in advance.
The food was fantastic. Authentic Cambodian food and plenty of it. The fish Amok was magnificent Service was excellent too. We will certainly be back.
Must be there. The rice noodle is the best , not the one in City .
The food was so enjoyable, so many fresh and exciting flavours. Service was prompt, attentive and very friendly. A winner on every count. Looking forward to our next visit already.
