BRILLIANT, ADVENTUROUS FOOD
COME AS A GUEST FOR DINNER... LEAVE AS A FRIEND!

"...The food was beautifully presented as always and plenty of it, the quality was amazing. Comments during the night included "I haven't tasted Thai food like this out of Thailand"  "how long have you known about this gem..."

A Destination

Dine with us and you’ll soon find Paladarr is one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets. If you’re after a "night to remember” and something a little bit special, then  you owe it to yourself to join us for lunch or dinner. The kitchen overseen by Issan local and Master Chef Chaloem Chaiseeha is all about delicate flavour and balance using the best produce, balance and style. Specialising in dishes from Thailand's north east  'Loem' prepares his dishes, with a deft salt-sour-heat balance and dazzlingly fresh ingredients. Food that is clean and bright, with layers of flavour and the right balance of heat and spice.

Let's get started

First up try one of our sublime entrees to start your evening.  If you've never tried our famous pla goong, you might enjoy the fusion of seared prawns, ginger, lemongrass, coriander, spring onion, fresh chilli, lemon juice and fish sauce, all mounted on a betel leaf -  please take a look at our menu

Refreshments 

Wine is such a personal choice. For those with refined palates we have some exceptional and exquisite Australian and New Zealand wines to enjoy from well known producers.  If you prefer cocktails or beer we can also match you with the perfect accompaniment to your meal. Paladarr is a fully licensed restaurant.  

Let your tastebuds talk

Paladarr dishes are balanced, with a succulent warm richness to the liquid absorbed by the meat, which is chopped, not ground, offering a marvellous aromatic lift.


"Well the evening is now over and it was a fantastic night.  Dennis had a wonderful time as did every one of our family and friends. Out of the 39 who attended only 4 had been there before and I can safely say you have 35 people who will be back again
The food was beautifully presented as always and plenty of it, the quality was amazing. Comments during the night included "I haven't tasted Thai food like this out of Thailand"  "how long have you known about this gem" etc etc 
We did stay until it was closing time, a true indicator of how everyone enjoyed the night - they didn't want to leave!
Thank you again for your care and attention, we appreciated the service and help. Please pass on our thanks to all involved"
Kay and Dennis
