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.
Great food and impeccable service, I keep coming back for that Saramann and those pumpkin parcels. The manager is lovely and prices are great for the location.
Rice paper rolls were really fresh and Amok fish excellent. Very pleased to see the abundance of Gluten Free options as one of our party of six required dishes of this type. Service was excellent. We will definitely return to Bopha Devi Docklands. Bopha Devi Yarraville is equally as good but limited seating space...
My husband and I had a lovely lunch at Bopha Devi. We used a Groupon voucher that had been gifted for a birthday which included a glass of wine, entree and main per person. We were not restricted to our choice of wine, we could choose any from the menu. The rice cakes were really flavoursome. The mains were delicious, and not too large a serving. The prices were very reasonable too. I wouldn't hesitate in returning.
Took my wife, our son and his wife to Bopha Devi Docklands as we live there. The service and the food were excellent but i thought that the prices were a bit on the high side. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Just lovely. It was a quiet weeknight dinner for two. The staff were friendly, the food was delicious. The restaurant has a lovely ambience. Rather than share plates we decided on a couple of mains and share a dessert. The servings for mains looked small however were quite filling and so we just couldn't quite finish off our yummy dessert in the end.
The food at Bopha Devi is always lovely, fragrant and well presented. There was no exception of this occasion. We went as a group of five on a Saturday night. Three from our group ordered a banquet whilst the remaining two ordered a-la-carte. The service was casual but very attentive. As a local, I must say that this restaurant is one of the best and most reliable in the area.
Went to Botha Devi for our 40th wedding Anniversary dinner with 2 other couples on 28th Feb. We very much enjoyed our evening and found the staff and the food were great. There is a good choice of starters and mains and we all thought the prices and portion sizes were excellent . We only wish we lived a bit closer and this restaurant would regularly receive our patronage.
