Review of Laurus Melbourne’s Vegan Tasting Menu.

Our team was recently invited to come in and try the latest offering from Laurus Melbourne, a modern Chinese eatery. We enjoyed a 9-dish vegan tasting menu and cocktail list.


What they say about their restaurant

“Laurus Melbourne is the embodiment of modern Chinese dining through an Australian lens brought to you by a team with decades of hospitality experience. With a focus on progressive Southern Chinese cuisine, the menu evokes a blending of two cultures, showcasing experimental and bold flavour combinations.”


Our Review

We visited on a cold Tuesday night in Melbourne and were warmly welcomed into this modern and stylish Chinese eatery. From the moment we entered the staff were attentive, professional, and clearly knowledgeable on the menu and the venue in general.

As you walk in you can enjoy either a private booth or a private table. The place is super spacious making it feel very personal. It’s sparse in a good way and it feels like you have plenty of privacy to chat eat and drink. The place has an ambient feel with a direct view of the kitchen which enhances the whole dining experience. As you would imagine given this, the kitchen appeared immaculately clean and orderly and the chefs were professional and efficient.

We enjoyed the entire vegan tasting menu as well as a selection of cocktails including the Red Clove Cocktail and non-alcoholic cocktail Ovant Lychee Martini (both were top notch).

We were then treated to the vegan tasting menu! We enjoyed the entire thing but need to make special mention to the Yu Xiang Eggplant which was crispy and delicious and one of the best eggplant dishes I’ve ever tasted. The Fu-Ru Tofu Chow Mein was also amazing and absolutely delicious. We then had the Turnip Cake which just melts in the mouth.

The Vegan sorbet was also incredible with a good mix of flavours.


Final Thoughts

If you are looking for a tasteful night of vegan food and epic cocktails in Melbourne’s CBD area, then Lauras is your spot! We loved the food, the experience, and the staff and would highly recommend it for your next vegan night out!
