Serving fine Asian-fusion in Melbourne’s Docklands, Merchant Society has become one of the city’s go-to locations for a sophisticated meal right by the waterfront. Fusing Malaysian flavours into classic Chinese, Japanese and Thai specialities, the restaurant provides unique dishes that can’t be found just anywhere. Stop by for lunch specials like the kampong chicken with rice, the fish three ways or the mee rebus, noodles with prawns, calamari, noodles and a slightly thickened gravy. For dinner, we recommend the Merchant’s Choice, your choice of prawns, soft shell crabs, or calamari flash fried in tempura batter and tossed in a decadent sauce of butter and curry leaves. Vegetarian diners are in luck, with the Chinese broccoli with chilli garlic sauce and the vegetable fried rice both packing in a lot of bold flavour. Let Merchant Society take you to another world – book your experience in advance at this Merchant Street favourite.
This is my go to lunch for special occasions. The fish 3 way is the one I almost always ordered. Gets very busy on Friday
Another great lunch! Food is well priced, generous and delicious. Large party, all served within good time. A go to favourite for us. Will be back.
Easy online booking (Despite opening hours) and excellent customer service. On top of this, the food was amazing, I always enjoy your Laksa! Kudos Guys..
The food is quite authentic and service was prompt - perfect for a weekday lunch at work. Good value and would go back again for the lunch specials!
Good quality food with suitable prising and pleasant venue. The staff was kind and quick, but a bit absent-minded, as they forgot to bring us water and then we asked for menu a second time to order more, but they didn't bring it. Maybe for more mature patrons.
Food is nice and the service is quick and friendly. a little bit pricy for Malayian food. If there is chili oil supply on the table will be better.
Excellent Food and service. Staff were very polite. Soft shell crab starter, green chicken curry was amazing. Noodles was average. Would recommend this to my friends.
The food here is fabulous and very good value. We go here with large groups a lot. Recommmend booking, they get very busy at lunchtime.
booking was easy, food was quick, fresh and tasty, location was convenient, staff where friendly and efficient, would recommend to others as a great lunch venue
