Groove Train

Location: Level 3, Melbourne Central [near Hoyts]
Cuisine: Modern Australian
Company: various

Groove Train is the place to go to when you don't know what you want to eat. They have an extensive menu ranging from pastas and risottos to satay chicken on rice to steaks, salads and focaccias. The possibilities are endless! Key favourite dishes:
  • Calamari and octopus salad - this has the most awesome dressing... and the calamari is always soft and chewy
  • Fried calamari - mmm, tartare sauce
  • Porterhouse steak - but more of a dinner dish than anything
The food is always of decent quality, although I do tend to stray away from the Asian dishes, you wouldn't order Italian food at a Korean restaurant, likewise I prefer not to order Asian dishes at an Australian restaurant.

~Atmosphere and Service~
The service is always pretty friendly, and it's nice to sit outside on the couches because they leave you alone more, and of course it's more comfortable. Even inside, the atmosphere is relaxing and casual.

Mains around around $15 - $20, more for the steak and some seafoods.

~Overall Impression: 9/10~
This place never fails me, there is always something decent to eat and the service is quite good. It's almost a regular place to eat, except that our aim at the moment is to try as many new places as possible!
