Magic Mountain Saloon – one of the stable of Melbourne favourites that includes Revolver Upstairs, Cookie, The Toff in Town and Boney – is fast becoming a breakfast classic in the CBD of the Victorian capital. Their recipe down on Little Collins Street isn’t complicated, but it’s easy to see why it works: the great Australian brekkie, fused with classic Thai ingredients and flavours to create something new and unique. Book a table now and check them out.
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.
Excellent selection of curries and other modern Thai dishes. For large groups, recommend trying the curries with rice and/or roti for a great sharing and tasting experience allowing you to sample a wide variety of curries, ingredients, and proteins.
Great venue with impeccable service. Greeted on arrival and as the host was directing us towards the table, another group sat themselves at the reserved table. Without skipping a beat, the host directed us up to the next level where we had a huge comfortable booth. The waitstaff were amazing - product knowledge was excellent, (we had a seafood allergy and a vegetarian with us). Taste in food is very objective and I was not a fan of our dishes we ordered, however I would go back as the menu offer is huge and I wouldn't discount based on experiencing three dishes.
Waitstaff were really attentive, even after we were running late due to traffic. Our waiter helped us choose delicious food and was very friendly and chatty. Very much enjoyed our lunch!
This is by far my favourite restaurant in Melbourne. Tonight was my third visit and every time the good and service is amazing! I would highly, highly recommend it!
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.
fantastic! friendly staff who recommended a great assortment of dishes. Very impressed with the timing and quality of service and food. Thank you to everyone for making my first dining experience at the Magic Mountain Saloon a 10/10!!! My favourite dish was the kale salad and the pork belly
