About Kotaraya - Elsternwick

It’s tempting to cut straight down towards the bliss awaiting on the Mornington Peninsula, Phillip or French Island, but such a single-minded escape from Melbourne risks missing the chance to try one of the city’s very best Asian restaurants. Easily accessible from the city or southeastern beaches in Elsternwick, where Glen Huntly Road meets the Nepean Highway, Kotaraya has for two decades been firmly established on the top tier of Asian fine dining in Melbourne, with more prestigious awards, flawless reviews and top-level praise than they have variations of delicious prawn dishes (read: a lot). Influences come from Thai, Chinese and Malaysian culinary traditions, celebrating the unique mesh of culture and cuisine across the Sinosphere. The stunning dishes served up (whether a la carte or in Kotaraya’s popular degustation menu) are too many too count and too delicious to describe, but rest assured that you will not regret or forget your visit. We promise.

Really nice meals, and good service on an evening which saw the restaurant half filled. Good atmosphere and we treat this place as our local Malaysian restaurant.

We enjoyed our dinner at kotoraya . We had the round table. My daughter and husband are vegan and they were very accommodating. The vegan San choy baou was lovely. Thankyou

Been there twice now and every dish we have ordered during both visits has been fantastic. Good service too. Fully recommended. Especially if your taking someone along to impress.
