What once started out as a single restaurant in Melbourne back in 1998, the Groove Train family has since grown into a household name, now a chain of popular restaurants located all across the east coast of Australia. Known for their high quality and flavoursome food, browsing the menu at Groove Train is like taking a round the world trip, featuring cuisine from just about every corner of the globe, from the USA to Indonesia. Located inside the Epping Plaza shopping centre on the High Street, a trip to Groove Train is the perfect post shopping treat!

Further Information

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Good service, but food was bland and portions way too big. We had a child and we're seated near the entrance so kept getting a cold draft.

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.
