Melbourne’s where it all began for Groove Train’s founder Rocky Veneziano, whose family of international-style restaurants has spread all over Victoria as well as to Queensland and New South Wales thanks to his unique take on global cuisines, fantastic value, and emphasis on proper hospitality. Regulars to Groove Train’s restaurants are called Groovers, and it’s these loyalty-card-holding diners that come back to Groove Train time and again for more Italian, Mediterranean, Asian and modern Australian classics. The Burwood East outlet of Groove Train in the Burwood One Shopping Centre along the Burwood Highway is yet another outpost for the veteran group of Melbourne restaurants that locals can call their own.
The big, hungry, passionate family of Groove Train restaurants is well established in Melbourne, where the chain of international restaurants first established itself. One amongst many in Melbourne, the Burwood East outlet can be found in the Burwood One Shopping Centre along the highway, and like its siblings it offers everything breakfasts to brunch to lunch to dinner, with drinks and coffee in between. In fact, Melbourne’s caffeinated Groovers know and love the Groove Press craft coffee that the restaurants roast, blend, grind and brew themselves. Don’t forget to get your Groove Club loyalty card stamped for great offers next time you dine!
Once the popular breakfast sessions turn around just before noon, Groove Train opens up its lunch and dinner menus, featuring all manner of international cuisines all given a distinctive Groove Train twist. Highlights at the Burwood East branch of Groove Train’s Melbourne (and east coast) empire, found in the shopping centre along the Burwood Highway, include the Gippsland steaks – grain-fed offered here as porterhouse, ribeye, or the huge Grooves mixed grill plate. There’s also a kid’s menu if you’ve got the little ones in tow.
Enjoyed our risotto for dinner. My wife had the pumpkin risotto and I had the chicken risotto. It was lovely. We recommend a family dinner there anytime. The staff are excellent and friendly. It was quite busy even for a Saturday. Says a lot about the Groovers.
Prompt and friendly service, excellent food, large servings - 10/10! I happened to be looking out the window and saw a lady drop something whilst running through the carpark in the rain and one of the waiters ran outside in the pouring rain, running around the carpark until he found the lady and returned her keys! Now that's service! :-)
Great food, generous quantity. Prompt table service aswell. Loved the Pink Floyd music in the background. Our group ordered the fisherman's basket and salt and pepper calamari. Fresh and wonderful tasting
