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.
I often bring business friends and colleagues and family to Merchant Society. Their food is good especially the kampung chicken curry, atmosphere is great, service is prompt & friendly.
As usual, I ordered the fish 3 ways and it is consistently good. Would order it again. The other dishes that are nice are beef rendang and laksa
Great service, amazing food and reasonable prices - got to have twice is nice pork! The Barra sunset dish is to die for as is the beef rendang - we will definately be back
