To fuel up for your day spent shopping at Epping Plaza, head to Groove Train for one of their infamous breakfast options like the breakfast burrito or triple-stacked pancakes, washed down with a cup of their own coffee blend for a good old caffeine fix. No matter what kind of cuisine you’re after, you’ll probably find something to satisfy your taste buds on the all day menu over at Melbourne’s Groove Train. If you’re looking for some Asian cuisine we recommend trying the chicken hokkien noodles (marinated chicken wok-fried with Asian greens, sweet soy, fresh coriander, ginger, chilli sauce and sesame seeds) or the Indian butter chicken, a take on the traditional dish served with jasmine rice, popadoms and raita yoghurt.
Italian aficionados should go for one of the woodfired pizzas or pastas while those after a classic British dish will love the beer-battered fish and chips with tartare sauce. With its location on Epping’s High street, no matter if it’s for a post-shopping feast or an evening out in this lively area, Groove Train is a fail-safe choice. Make a reservation in advance to grab one of the best tables at this beloved Melbourne fixture!
food & service was great, my family & i enjoyed mother's day breakfast, great atmosphere & people. definitely will come back again, juices are bomb.
It was so good and good staff and food, also getting a rose for v-day was also good. I would tell people to go there.
Food was great service was great a+++ Will be goinf back for sure. Very fast service great for a quick lunch or dinner great all round
Booked a table of 12 for my daughters b'day and not one complaint!! Great service food was fantastic!! Great place for a night out! Totally recommend!!!!
Food and service was very good. The only thing that really annoys me is that many places can get very noisy without effective sound reduction panels. Family friendly places need to do some work with noise levels and their choice of music does not help. Along with a nice meal I enjoy having a good conversation but noise levels distract from the experience. But overall a very good experience twice in approx 2 weeks..
Awesome food! Great environment and friendly staff! I read so many negative reviews and was weary of coming here but honestly I don't believe any of that now. Food came out relatively quick and although on the pricey side, you get very generous servings so you are paying for what you get!
Some of the waiters/waitresses were great and attentive, while a couple need to be re-trained as they looked like they had no interest. Venue is hip and cool, would say it's a mixed crowd age-wise. Food was good, satisfied my tastebuds. Would recommend over the other food joints there.
Came to celebrate a 21st birthday and we were not disappointed. Great food at a fantastic price. The service was amazing!! :) I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends! Thankyou very much for a great evening.
Went to Groove Train for Mother's Day, the food was excellent and the service was exceptional too.. great selection on the menu with lots of different tastes to choose from... Everyone was happy and we enjoyed our meal.. :)
The service and food was great. Staff were friendly nice atmosphere. I highly recommend the fishermans basket, the fish, prawns, scallops and calamari was fresh and delicious and a very generous portion.
Measl served quicjkly and still very hot. We all enjoyed our selection. Might be picky but plates were still on the table 15 minutes after finishing and no-one bothered to ask if we wanted dessert so we left.
Service and meal was fantastic. They didn't have the booking though. Next time I will book over the phone, not through Quandoo. The restaurant were very accommodating considering they were busy and didn't have a booking for us.
The food was great and the staff were super professional and friendly. I would highly recommend using Quandoo to book a table, I have even downloaded the app on my phone.
Good customer service. Food was great and big serve. Nice place to dine with family or friends.staff are very accomodating.i love their steak and buttered chicken and their desserts as well.
My dinner party and guests enjoyed the evening and atmosphere very much. Good food overall. We had risotto, fish and chips, steak and chips. Thanks for the great work over the long Easter weekend.
The food was great and served on time, and also the waitresses were very helpful. It's a very friendly atmosphere good place to catch up with friends.
Can't complain about anything, service, food and price was all great. Definitely would recommend. We had a party of 9 and nothing was too much trouble.
Excellent and quick service. There was always a waiter close by. Great food at a reasonable price. The drink list was full of great choices.
great service, the food delicious overall,( a small comment the fish batter was a bit thick and heavy) Portions size huge. I will recommend the groove train to my friends.
The selection of food was great, especially with people in our group that have diet specific requirements. No one was dissatisfied with their food and in fact all were impressed.
Food was good presentation was ossum enjoyed staff was efficient and smart friendly .The venue was quite close to shopping centre clean and nice environment
the meals and service was very good - cant complain - if anything was a cold night and venue isn't overly warm but will go again, during the warmer months
It was okay - main meals were good, but the dessert was not satisfying. Service was good, although they were short staffed. It was a little cold in the restaurant due to the doors being left open.
Food and service was great. Only downside asked for water and didn't get it. Table was Near the window which was hot and noisey. Would definitely go back.
We had a very good night out and the food was pretty good, the only negative was it was busy so the service was sometimes very slow.
The food was good and the portions were fairly large. The service on Sunday afternoon was prompt and the meals came out in a timely manner.
Lovely meals, quick service and staff were pleasant. Inside Table location wasn't great near door draft and smoke area. Would definitely return but specify table location.
Food was very nice. Big meals. Service was good. Only thing wrong was the meals were a bit slow coming out but not too bad
I appreciate how busy Mothers Day can be however 1 1/2 hours wait for food is ridiculous. No staff member had the courtesy to let us know there's a wait and when asked how long our food would be we were told 'soon'... steak was dry and stewed, had to ask for another one and even that wasn't cooked as requested. Burger was dry and cold, salt n pepper squid had no salt. Fish oozed oil. Very overpriced for what we got and the service wasn't up to scratch. Very disappointed. Definately won't be going back.
Food was good. Service okay Only problem that big blow flys were everywhere whilst eating food. Also they don't allow split the bill when dining with a big group.
Food was average. My husband ordered the fish and chips and could hardly find any fish amongst the very thick batter. Waitress kept forgetting things. Ragout didn't taste fresh.
Food was not the best. We ordered a Garlic pizza and the base was too hard just like a biscuit. Chicken Burger bead buns tasted stale !!
I requested a booth and when we arrived, we did not get a booth and there was like two booths empty and they looked like they were not reserved at the time we were there.
The food wasn't great and the service was appalling. It is a shame because we had a large group and 90% of people were unhappy.
Individual orders were not allowed in group dinner bookings. A few arrived late and only wanted a coffee/cake before heading off to the movies, but the restaurant refused to take individual paid orders. So we left without our coffee/cake fix. We were most disappointed :(
The food is great, the service not so much we waited an hour for our breakfast and only 4 of our meals made it on the table with 1 meal short.
