Further Information

There’s no better way to start your day off at Groove Train over in Melbourne’s Wantirna South than with one of their breakfast offerings, from triple stacked pancakes to Spanish savoury eggs (scrambled eggs, chorizo, semi-dried tomatoes, onion and kalamata olives with sourdough bread) and coffee and cake. If it’s lunch or dinner that you’re after, you won’t be disappointed either. With options like wood-fired pizza, a range of pastas, woks and curries, salads, burgers, steaks and other main courses, Groove Train’s Knox outlet is ideal for family meals or dining as a large group in Melbourne, with something to suit all tastes.

We recommend starting with the salt & pepper calamari or the rustic eggplant chips, then moving on to some penne amatriciana (pan-fried bacon, garlic, roasted capsicum, olives, chilli, napoli sauce and shaved parmesan) or the chicken parmigiana (a crumbed chicken breast topped with napoli sauce, mozzarella and parmesan). Leave room for dessert though, because there is an array of delicious sweet options on the menu. Get aboard the Groove Train in Knox by booking a table at this Wantirna South hotspot on Burwood Highway!

Very consistent high quality prompt service and delicious food. Good vegetarian options as well. Love sitting in a booth, but just as comfortable sitting at one of the tables

Great food and good choice I seem to enjoy it more than the other Groove Trains, too. Good, friendly service and kid friendly. I'm a member too. So I got 25 bucks off because it was my birthday and 10% off Mon - Thurs.

First impressions were great, greeted and taken to booth quickly and happily, very comfortable seating and temperature, clean, drinks bought quickly as was food. Five people all ordered different meals on a Sunday at 2 pm...every bite was delicious and every person very happy with their meal. We hadnt been before but will be regulars now. The ease of the booking process ensures a speedy return for all 5 of us Everything at the Groove Train earns a 10 out of 10.

Overall very good. There were 3 problems. 1: they forgot one of our meals but did come to the table and apologise, acknowledging it was their fault. 2: My steak was ordered as medium but was definitely rare which is not a real problem as I can eat a rare steak. The worst part was the steak was very tough, some bits were so tough I could not chew it. 3: We decided to have desert and were given the desert menu but then no one came back to take our order. Despite all the above it was

Had lunch on a Saturday for a party of 6. Service was quite good though we were not offered the specials menu (we only saw these as we were leaving). Food and drinks service was reasonably quick, though there was mixed reactions to the actual food (my wife did not like the Spaghetti Pescatore, and indicated she would have chosen special menu dish if we had seen them earlier, fish in the Fisherman's Basket was over cooked, but rest of sea food was spot on, beef pattie in burger was not cooked to the eater's requirement). Will probably give the restaurant another try.

Super friendly staff, checked how our meal was (wonderful!), great atmosphere. My only criticism would be that the meal sizes are massive and personally I'd rather have an option to pay half and get half the amount of food, rather than feeling obliged to eat twice as much as I need to rather than waste any of the meal.

The service was really good - friendly staff and were attentive. I ordered the Chicken Satay which included rice and greens on the side as a description. When it arrived it was lukewarm. The flavour was OK but not a lot of spice. The most appalling part of the meal was the drumhead cabbage that served as the greens. Never in the countless meals I have eaten in restaurants have I been served cabbage (both white and purple) as a side and definitely NOT in an asian meal. If they had run out, I would have preferred to choose another meal. If this is how they normally serve it, I definitely won't be returning.

Friendly staff and Good food was just a little bit noisy for me inside with all of the young kids, I booked online and there was no choice of where you wanted to sit, My suggestion would be! that the format of the online booking is changed to allow the customer of where they would like to sit! inside or outside! would of been a much better night for me sitting outside with less noise! apart from that can't complain!

Table service was fairly slow. We had finished eating and a few of us wanted to order coffees but no one came near our table for at least 20 minutes. Then it took another 25 minutes to receive an ice chocolate while everyone else got their coffee in about 10 minutes. We also had to ask them to clear the table of cups from when we first sat done AFTER our meal. The food was ok. Nothing amazing. We were there for breakfast. We were disappointed that they didn't butter anyone's toast and then we had to ask for butter. Won't be back in a hurry.

It was a good night and food was delicious- staff friendly and allowed us to split the bill if we went up one at a time and paid which worked well! Only thing I'd add is to make sure staff are checking for drinks- we would have ordered so much more but once our meal arrived no staff came for drink orders

Lovely new venue. I've been to a few GT's. I tried something different both food & drink wise, and both were delicious. 10% surcharge on public holiday wasn't mentioned until we were paying for the meal, would have been more convenient to be told upon arrival. But I'll definitely be back.

Fantastic - staff were really welcoming - our party of 5 were totally amazed how they remember our order without writing it down before entering it in the computer. Food is delicious and great value for money. Even let us split the bill, which is very rare now adays!

Great service, very timely. The food was great and again we only wait around 10 mins from ordering to recieving our meals. The meals were large servings which tasted fantastic. The only issue I had was it was extremely noisy inside so not the best place to have a chat with your company.

The food was delicious, with special mentions to the eggplant chips and garlic Pizza for entree. We loved the chicken burger and chicken souvlaki. The meal sizes were huge, and there are so many menu choices! Recommend you leave enough room for the cookie monster! The staff were extremely friendly 👍

The food was excellent. All five of us enjoyed our meals. Drinks came promptly as did the meals, considering how busy the restaurant was we did not have to wait too long. Would highly recommend Groove Train to all my friends.

Overall we were happy everything from service to food standard. We booked a table for 6 people but given a table fit better for 4 people by a waiter without a friendly greeting, then we had to requested table better for 6 people, otherwise the rating would be 6

Food and service were excellent but we found it quite noisy as there were around 4 televisions on at the same time on different channels so people were talking louder which made it hard to hear the discussions on our own table. Would definitely go back again.

The food was good and the service was great. The temperature of the restaurant was too warm and made me uncomfortable, a cooler climate would really help. I did have trouble signing up to the online membership but the manager - Frank was very helpful and I was most grateful for his help and excellent customer service.
