Came here for dinner. Ordered 3 vegan meals and a side of rice for 4 people. Had the eggplant in some kind of sauce, spinach and mushrooms in oyster sauce. Green curry veg. It was ok. Tasty enough. I've had better vegan meals ( considering I'm not vegan) The service was excellent. Glasses of wine were pricey.

After an exhausting day I just wanted to get a takeaway and go back to my hotel. At Fomo I was able to do this. The food was so delicious and they took extra care, double wrapping it for my walk back to my hotel, so as it didnt leak. They were busy, however I didnt have to wait long.... More

My husband and I attended this restaurant really excited. The overall decor was beautiful and read some decent reviews online. The service was nice from the initial waiter however some language barriers from our order taker left us with an incorrect order, which we were totally fine with but when we brought it up with the staff they became very...

Really enjoyed my lunch of massaman curry! Generous serving with lots of meat for $15, the meal was fresh and full of flavour. Our meals were served relatively quickly. The dining space is modern but a little noisy. Recommend making a booking for larger groups.

We had to do a bit of searching for a restaurant which would do gluten free food. We stumbled upon Fomo. The food was delicious, especially the pad Thai. Great job guys.

Fomo is gourmet Thai food, and offers a good range of dishes, which are prepared faster than you would ever expect. Truly delicious meals. The service is attentive and speedy. Prices for mains range from $17-$38 and portions are by no means huge. A good range of beers is available priced from $7-9 and a small selection of wines priced... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
