The sad loss of one of the owners has made no difference to the quality of this memorable little restaurant. Food is reliably fresh, always tasty and delicious ad arrives hot and in rapid time. Cannot be bettered for modestly priced Asian food!

This is something out of the ordinary, the host treats you as if you are in his home. The chef is also very friendly and as a result its a good place to eat. You are made very welcome which is something you don't see very often

Whenever I'm in Melbourne I can't resist going back to 101 for a meal. I'm in Melbourne around 3 times a year. For a start it's flattering to be recognised even if its more than a while since previously being there. The food is perfect: superbly balanced flavours, good presentation and just the right portions (not skimpy and not heavy... More

Had a lovely dinner with the family. The food was great and the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. Meals did not take long to get to the table once it was ordered. The dry lamb was superb yet once again. This is a place you keep coming back to.

A group of us keep coming back to 101 as the food is always good and excellent value. The "dry lamb" - is anything but its description - being beautifully moist and falls apart in your mouth. The fish is also very good here.

We were a group of 9, armed with a birthday cake. The welcome was warm, the service prompt and obliging. All the dishes were tastty and the price very reasonable. Being byo added to the appeal. There was plenty of free parking behind the small shopping centre opposite. We will certainly return.

Ate here with family including my 90 year old father in law for about the third time. The food is always nice - a cross between Thai and Chinese. We had a range of entrees, spring rolls, curry puffs and the prawn fritters, all of which were very nice. We shared three mains and still couldn't finish it, a nice... More

Great food, great service, excellent value - what else is there to say? Went here after seeing an excellent movie at the Rivoli Cinema - I had the honey lemon beef, Anna had spicy prawns, loved it all.
