About The Groove Train - Burwood One Shopping Centre
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.
We enjoyed our breakfast. Service was good too. Staff happy and quick to clear away dishes when finished. All staff had smiles, were polite and friendly.
Good food, great service, staff were courteous and friendly, the food was good and prices were not over the top. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant.
We were greeted with friendly smiles and we had friendly waiters which were professional and efficient the food was yummy we were served quickly and the service was good too.
We had a great night. Food as always was fabulous. The service was friendly and efficient. The parking is easy and there is a lift for those who can't manage the stairs up to the restaurant.
My wife and have been members for over 2 years and occasionally have breakfast at Burwood East. We have also booked tables for special occasions: Birthdays and, yesterday, Mothers' Day. We were lucky to get our booking as it was made last Friday. The place was buzzing when we arrived at 2pm and a couple of our guests were late. So, naturally, we didn't order our meals until that came. All meals were well presented and enjoyed by all. Drinks and serving staff were pleasant, courteous and efficient. Thank you Groove Train.
We had a 1pm reservation with a party of 8 and food service was very slow. There were only three other smaller tables in at the time which doesn't seem overly busy for a lunch hour. Nobody was wowed with their food either. My particular choice, the Southern Fried Chicken Burger had a very confused spicy flavor, almost more of an Asian chili spice than Southern Fried. Another colleague order the Porterhouse done medium and it came out Well done and chewy. Service staff were reasonably friendly at the start but became scarce once the food was delivered. Overall not a great experience and certainly not one that we would highly recommend for a office lunch choice. We were not in a rush, but had it been a typical work lunch we would have had to asked for takeaway as slow as the food was to come out.
Food was nice but average. Slightly overpriced for what it was. Main issue were the staff- it was pot n Parma night, but as we were driving we couldn't drink alcohol. We asked for a soft drink instead but they refused. (Only place I know that doesn't do it). We also asked for chicken breast instead of tenderloins in a salad but they refused. In addition, the waiter was extremely intrusive- removing plates with food still on them. Then next time aggressively asking 'are you done?!' Before taking the plate. We also asked for the entree to be served first, but all the meals came at once. Was about a 50 min wait. Wasn't horrible But wouldn't recommend.
My family and I ordered pizzas, burgers & chicken parmagina. The food was delicious. The staff were friendly and accomodating. The toilets were clean and there was sufficient soap for washing hands. The billing was honest and correct and I was happy that I could pay by Mastercard. I would have given a rating of 6 if I was able to pay by American Express- my preferred credit card.
My husband and I went with our 2 small kids for the first time as a family. We were pleasantly surprised at the speed of service and food delivery. The food was really really good, especially the calamari and the gnocchi. Servings were very generous. Almost too large. Will return for sure.
Staff very helpful. Happy to move us to a table away from the cold draught that swept in every time the front door opened. Meals good. Thai calamari salad (had it once before when the chilli level was virtually unbearable but they let us check the chilli dressing before ordering last night and it was good) and beef salad both enjoyable.
From the moment I walked in the staff were attentive . The food was SENSATIONAL M, I had Thai Calamari Salad which would say was the BEST Calamari I have ever had and sent my compliments to the kitchen! Would definitely return just for the Calamari again!!
Welcoming and very friendly staff. Great coffee, main meal and dessert. Loved the air conditioning as it was a very warm day, but he table water could have been cold and not warm from the tap . Definitely be heading back there another day.
The service was great. We had a party of 11 and one of us needed to leave early. The staff made sure the plate came out first for that person who needed to leave. The food was delicious. The rest of the meals came out together very shortly. Nice clean restaurant.
Service was punctual, return of drinks ordered not as quick. I has a gourmet lamb pizza which was very good and more than I could eat. A couple of others at the table had lamb and a curry who thought they were OK but not great. Unfortunately the coffee order was forgotten. I don't think it would stop us from going again.
Great place for a casual meal for guests of all ages. We ended up with 2 extra people than booked for and it was no problem to them whatsoever. Good, attentive service. I enjoyed my birthday celebration with family and friends! Thanks Groove Train Burwood
Usually enjoy the Groove Train however the last visit was on a major celebration day and we were hurried along and annoyed every 5 minutes by the wait staff. It was not enjoyable at all and we could not relax because they were hurrying people along so they could fit in the next shift! I will ensure I don't go here on a busy celebration day again. Other than that I've enjoyed it previously.
Another great night at Groove Train. The service is always quick, efficient and friendly and the food is always fresh, tasty and great. Try and make room for dessert because it is always delicious.
A bit noisy music too loud made talking difficult- waiter with attitude,main meal too much chilli and sweets -choc mousse was hard on top and not served with cream and strawberries had to ask waiter to bring these - she came out with a very large serve of cream and strawberries x2 and plonked them on the table - was really not was requested
The food was generously sized but the staff were not attentive despite it being a Tuesday night and very quiet (it was raining). i ordered the special beef lasagna; there was more pasta layers rather than filling unfortunately. Polenta chips were amazing as usual!
Been to this location a few times and find there is very quick service. The staff are very attentive and friendly. It's a lovely place to catch up for a meal or a few drinks.
The service was wonderful the waitress was so friendly and even though the resturant was busy there was no delays in receiving the meals and plates were cleared punctually.
Food was amazing! Comfortable environment, however service wasn't great. I had to ask for the dessert menu after finishing our mains half an hour before I asked. Toilet roll holders were broken in the toilet and my roll was laying on the floor.
The service was good and they let us split the bill. The waiter was very patient while we waited for a very late friend. The food didn't blow me away but it was tasty.
Dinner with the family - excellent service and atmosphere. Had been here previously and the experience then was great. Service was prompt and friendly, with our meals arriving in a timely manner. Highly recommended.
This was our first time at The Groove Train and we loved it. We will definitely be back. The food was really good and portions were huge. Atmosphere was good without being overly noisy.
Fantastic! Loved the atmosphere and ambience. The service staff looked tired but friendly. Took some time to get parking. The food.. I loved it. Delicious and value for money.. will surely go there again..
Great food and excellent service. Not noisy. The restaurant has a nice feel about it. Will definitely go back again. Staff lovely and friendly. Thanks for having us.
A lunch with 6 friends today and it was very good. Excellent, friendly, efficient service and delicious food. A great place to have a meal. Highly recommend it.
Good service. Very pleasant staff. Food was delicious and very prompt. Coffee was hot, as requested. The whole ordeal was very good. Would recommend to anyone. Reasonably priced.
We had a lovely lunch at the Groove Train in Burwood East. The service was good & food was lovely & generous servings at a reasonable price. I would definitely be back again.
Fast and super friendly service with a smile. Our meal was delicious as it always is here and a lovely Mother's Day lunch was had by all!
Good food, prompt and friendly service and cold beer. Good place for a lunchtime catch-up. Have driven past many times and will now add this to our list of places to go.
Delicious food, good service and comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely be back for more gnocchi! The only downside was difficulty finding parking, but it is Christmas season.
Fantastic food and service....highly recommend the sharing platter! Would definitely return again as its great size servings with a huge choice and reasonably priced. Loved it
Great restaurant. Excellent service and vibe! Food was beautiful. Atmosphere was also very welcoming and warm. Definitely will be one of our regular spots to visit.
Great food great service. Would definitely go back. The only issue I had was the wait time for the food to come out but it was a busy Mother's Day morning.
Great food, delightful staff, nice family feel. Good choice of mains and kids options. Casual dining, but not too noisy which made the night a wonderful experience. Will definitely go back!
The food was excellent-each dish was fantastic-pizzas, pastas and salads, service exemplary. Sat outside on the terrace in the sun so I would highly recommend.
Food was good but I asked for it to be more spicy n it wasn't. Great place n customer service was Spot on. A bit pricey for many simple dishes.
They did not have the food I wanted as it was sold out and the waitress kept asking us if we wanted mains when we told her we did not
Behave a,ways struggled to find a lighter option for lunch, found the focaccia' today, perfect. Lovely chicken, avocado etc, satisfying while still able to eat my dinner later on.
The staff was very friendly and the service efficient. The menu was interesting without being too long and the food was good. Good sized portions too. Will definitely revisit.
The food took ages to come out. The staff were great and the manager gave us free drinks while we waited for our food to arrive. Food was nice.
Good service, great food generous helpings. Nice atmosphere. Convient location. Plenty of parking. In the same complex as Kmart 24 hours, so you can browse through Kmart as well.
Our waitress Amelia was friendly and helpful. There were so many delicious sounding options on the menu it was hard to choose! Thank you for an enjoyable experience.
Booking was simple, atmosphere was warm and friendly. There is an upbeat feel about the venue but not noisy. The staff were great, i would definitely be back.
Great food in a busy fun filled environment. The staff were friendly and happy to assist. I will be going back there again soon to enjoy this great restaurant. Plenty of space to park.
we had a really nice meal and I got my meal free as it was my birthday as I'm a Groove Train member .. so yay !!
the party attending appreciated the food and the timely good service in bringing out the food and the clearing of the dishes following the meal - thanks!
Overall it was an enjoyable evening with nice food and a good atmosphere. The chairs could do with some upgrading; maybe a little padding would help.
