Merah Northcote has garnered itself quite the following of foodies, and it’s not hard to see why. Located in the heart of this bustling suburb on High Street, the Merah menu is brimming with Malaysian dishes so delicious – and spicy – you’ll be coming back time and time again to sample them all. Definitely one for those who like it hot, the team here certainly go above and beyond to create flavoursome dishes you won’t be forgetting… and they certainly don’t skimp on the sambal either. We love starting at Merah Melbourne with grilled tiger prawns coated in ginger sambal, then moving onto the duck and jackfruit curry or mamak mee goreng. Whatever you end up choosing, your taste buds will be in heaven at this Asian delight. It’s a local favourite though, so reservations are essential to avoid disappointment.
Merah was a delight! Beautiful interior, attentive service, and the food was amazing. I booked a table for a date, and it was perfect! Quiet enough to really chat, bustling enough to ease any awkward silences. Defs would recommend.
Merah's food was a fusion approach to Malaysian food. Everything here was great, being Malaysian myself I loved it. I'd definitely come back.
Great food! Ordered almost the entire menu and there wasn’t a duff meal! Everyone at our table loved it. Only criticism was the rather large bill at the end of the evening.
