We were greeted as if we were family. We were shown to our table and given the menus. Water was served, we were asked if we wanted a pre-dinner drink. Our waitress took our order and it was only a short wait before our was served. The staff were most attentive without hovering, we were treated like we mattered. The food was served hot, on hot plates. The food was delicious and flavours balanced. We enjoyed our experience very much and will be back soon.

We’ve been long time customers of Sunrise and each time we dine here it’s consistently good. Food is great, very tasty. Samosas are great as is the tandoori mushroom. Curries are all good quality and large serves. Service is quick and efficient. The bill was under $75 for three people and that included alcohol. We will keep coming back!

Booked for an early Valentines dinner before going to a show. Great welcome, attention and interaction with staff who were keen to please whilst retaining a professional approach. Menu provided a well balanced range of options. We had two delicious and beautifully presented starters with two equally well prepared mains plus sides, bottled water and a couple of cocktails. All up around $180 which I regard as excellent value in Melbourne where we have had some highly acclaimed but very average dining experiences. Wines and drinks list was most adequate and the lovely fresh and open ambience of the restaurant provided a really good impression of a nice modern venue. We could not fault the food or the service and we both have eaten at some really fine dining and hatted restaurants around the World. I was fascinated to see after years of absence from 27 Little Collins where I used to be a regular at the former site which was the (ill -fated)Naval and Military Club. Recommend to all seeking some more traditional dining albeit with gentle modern touches in modern surroundings at a nice end of the city we all love.

About the restaurant
A place that feels like home.. I don't mean that in a sense that the place is covered in dog hair, the tv is blaring, the kids are screaming and there's lego all over the floor; more in a sense that you feel welcomed, content and at home from the minute you enter, right up until you leave. We wanted to create a place, that I myself, would want to visit on a regular basis. A place where your name is more important to us than your money is. A place where you feel like a regular from your first visit. A place where you feel like a part of our family. A place you felt you've been before. A place that feels like home.... Ok, so we have fancy wine glasses, twinkling candles, nice chairs and really shiny cutlery, but don't let that fool you... We're humble, both in our service and in our food, and pretentiousness and oversized egos were banished from the premises the day we started trading. We like looking the part, but life's too short for airs and graces...
