Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so we’re told at least, but it can often be a little staid. There’s only so many smashed avos and bacon & eggs that one can take before one starts to hanker after something a little bit more adventurous. Enter Magic Mountain Saloon. They offer up the classics of the breakfast genre, but with a Thai twist, offering something new and interesting to the Melbourne public from their address on Little Collins Street in the CBD.
Take a trip over to Parliament station and wander around the corner to Little Collins Street and Magic Mountain Saloon. Their menu includes Thai takes on the Australian breakfast: think daikon hash browns, crispy pork, celery and egg salad, chicken and kaffir lime Scotch egg, and the Asian brekkie staple of congee. They offer a whole range of evening meals as well, so don’t just go for breakfast: after all, cocktails aren’t just a breakfast drink. Book yourself a table now in Melbourne CBD.
Amazing food and good tunes! Not a big fan of the tables that are opposite the carpark and are right in the fluorescent light (maybe get some blinds?) but overall great venue with great food and cocktails. Perfect date night spot.
Amazing food and great service. Recommend the $50 set menu. The atmosphere is great fantastico with a unique layout and music. The over atmosphere have good vibes. I will definitely be back
The service was excellent and the food was amazing! I would recommend this place to anyone, special mention to the by thr bisom cocktail; it was very good
There were 6 of us and not been to Magic Mountain. From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed. Food was fantastic as was the service. Thumbs up for this place. Will definitely recommend this place to others
I went with my brother and a few friends who were visiting from sydney. We ordered a few different dishes, like curried softshell crab, papaya salad, fried rice which they all were a bomb! The flavour, texture and quality were satisfying. We also had the ocean trout as entree which was yummy and refreshing! The waitress who served us on that day was really friendly and energetic, the whole experience was so good that we will definitely going back for more. No exaggeration here, it is not even my first time, so my review based on my past few visits.. One thing though, they are not really prompt with their phone calls, so if you have booked earlier and need to make changes, it will take some time to reach them (in my case, i actually walked in since i live around the area). It is just a small technical thing..
Absolutely delicious food, we had the $65 banquet and it was more than enough. Highlights were the soft shell crab curry and the fluffy roti. The pumpkin crème brulee was a winner as well! The staff were friendly and attentive. The soap in the toilet should also get a mention! Probably the nicest soap I have encountered! Our team is notoriously hard to please yet we all enjoyed our Magic Mountain Saloon experience!
Magic Mountain Saloon was very, very good. As a prelude to the theatre, the serves were just right so we did not leave feeling bloated. We were not kept waiting for food or drinks! Each course was beautifully presented and the service was spot on. If there is anything to be negative about, it is the volume of the background music which did intrude significantly from time to time.
Another great lunch at Magic Mountain. This is my 4th visit (have also done breakfast and dinner) and it has not failed to please every time. Ordered my favourite green prawn and kingfish starter. Still very intensely flavoured, although it was oily today. We had the holy trinity grill and that was sensational as well. Perfectly grilled prawns, very tasty & spicy sausages and perfectly cooked and smokey filet Mignon. Accompaniments were good as well although a little more salad would be nice considering there was a lot of protein! But not something I would complain about. Desserts of pumpkin brulee and Thai crepe cake still as good as my last visit. Coffee could have been better although if it had been truly a Thai restaurant (run & staffed by Thais), I would have said it was excellent, haha! Good espresso coffee is a rarity in Asian restaurants/cafes. Service was also excellent! Highly recommended.
We were a group of 4 ladies that had come in from Adelaide for the week end. We had booked a week earlier for Friday night at 8.00pm. When we arrived the whole place was full. We were sent upstairs and had a booth. We loved the food, good service, but the music was just too loud. We are an outgoing social group, so music is never a problem however this spoilt the night as we couldn't speak to each other. I understand that they don't have a DJ earlier in the week. I don't understand why they can't play music at that volume a little later. However the type of music was great, and we would have enjoyed it if it was in the background. We ate and left within the hour. I would recommend people to go but not if they were meeting up for dinner.
The food (oh my god - it was amazing!!!) the service (print friendly and attentive - always kept our glasses full), the atmosphere (the place was buzzing - booking in advance is highly reccomended!) and the extensive cocktail and wine lists makes Magic Mountain Saloon a MUST visit!!
A little disappointed on my second visit to MMS... I arrived at 8:15 for a 8:30 booking and was advised to perch at the bar until our table was ready which is cool. My partner and I sat at the bar until 9:05 then I had to remind the service staff about our booking, we were sat down 2 minutes later however, the frustrating part is that my table was already vacant when I first arrived in clear view. We ordered the kingfish and prawn entree, pork and pineapple egg net and the crispy pork belly with kale. Everything was great except for the pork belly. When you write ' crispy pork belly ' on your menu, please don't send out chewy pork belly that tastes as though someone blasted it in a microwave for 2 mins. Everything else was decent and the beer list is excellent. Brooklyn Lager on tap is a fine drop for Asian cuisine too. I doubt I'll return to dine at MMS, however I will definitely return for a couple of pints of Brooklyn Lager! On this visit, I rated MMS 4/10. Cheers
As soon as we walked in the service was amazing. Super friendly staff who just seemed to be on the ball and know what they're talking about when it comes to both food and drinks menu. The enthusiasm of the girl when I told her we were there for my boyfriends birthday put us in an instant great mood!! The food itself was spectacular and cocktails equally as good. The overall vibe is fun and chilled and we will definitely be back :)
Popped in for a quick pre-theatre bite, so the 2-hour allocation for dinner was no problem. It was early evening so not too crowded - the music was loud on arrival but was turned down so that we could hear each other (a group of six) talk. Very helpful waitress who when asked gave detailed information about gluten free options. The servings were fast and generous, and very tasty. Very happy with the dining experience but probably wouldn't take a large group there if you wanted to hear each other when the place is full and busy.
We arrived early to have a drink at the bar which was very busy! There was a hold up with our cocktails and the manager thought we had been inconvenienced and gave us the cocktails for free. We didn't complain as we realised the restaurant was busy but they were concerned we had waited too long. It is quite noisy but that's cos it was really busy so that adds to the buzz of the place. Food was great service very good and friendly I would recommend this restaurant and I would definitely go back.
Really impressed. We were difficult and arrived 2 hours early for our 9pm booking and asked if we could extend to 3 people rather than 2. Not only did they accommodate us on a Friday evening (fully booked), they did so with very friendly service and gave us a suitable table that 2 very long legged boys comfortably fit on. Food was all delicious and atmosphere up in the bar afterwards was great fun. On face, we're still here!!
Food was so fresh and flavoursome. Cocktails were delish and the service was exceptional! The three of us girls had an awesome night celebrating Stace's birthday and haven't stopped talking about it! Thanks Magic Mountain Saloon!! X
We enjoyed our lunch experience at Magic Mountain Saloon, the food was excellent. The lamb ribs were nearly as spicy as our waitress, Liz - we liked her! We tried 3 cocktails and enjoyed all of them, the 'Beat it, bitch' was a standout.
Great cocktails, food, and atmosphere on a Friday night. service was excellent. However, not an ideal venue if you are hard of hearing, quite a noisy experience but we felt it added to the buzz of the place. The bar area is great if you are asked to vacate the table after your 2 hour allocated booking (which we thought was fair on a busy evening!). Would return for a fun night out.
Food was nice but rather overpriced! When diners are prompted to leave when their gastro pub-style table time of two hours makes the prices even worse. We spent over $100 each for a total of four plates of food. There's no need to go back to Magic Mountain Saloon, there's too many other better options in Melbourne that aren't like a pub that treat you like a king when you pay that price.
This is my fall back venue when I don't know where else go and it has never disappoint. I've been seated upstairs as well as down stairs (on all occassions was for dinner) and I have to say, the down stairs service has been execptionally better. I've taken friends from out town to dine here and they've all been very happy with food recommendations and the service. Well done team!
