Grab The Bintang, A Balinese Rooftop Restaurant Is Coming To BNE

Basically the Bali vaycay you’ve been waiting for

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 9th March 2021

If you’ve been missing getting sloshy in a sarong at Potato Head, we have news! Your long overdue Bali break isn’t too far away – in fact, it’s coming to Bulimba.

From the legendary crew behind Pawpaw Cafe, Darvella Patisserie, and Monocle Coffee comes a breezy Balinese inspired restaurant and rooftop bar on the river end of Oxford Street. Serving Indonesian and Thai charcoal grilled dishes with a modern Asian twist, MELROSE is bound to be your new go-to for a sunset spritz.

Firing up the kitchen is Head Chef Arté Assavakavinvong from Melbourne’s iconic Longrain Thai restaurant. With tantalising experience in Bangkok restaurants, he’ll be turning fresh Australian produce into unique fare such as grilled banana wrapped coral trout and turmeric curry with green melon, jackfruit, eggplant, and betel leaf.

MELROSE opens Wednesday May 12. Book here
