Named after Burma. Not Burmese

Eclectic modern Australian food

We know, it’s confusing. But hear us out. From the same team as Melbourne’s favourite Asian fusion restaurant, Red Spice Road, Burma Lane started as a pop-up event at the 2013 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Laneway event. Wanting to expand our wings beyond South East Asia, we ventured to the lightly explored Burma to satisfy our culinary wanderlust. Just like Miley Cyrus went from saccharine-sweet Hannah Montana to a fierce wrecking ball of a twerking headline, we’ve grown up too. Burma Lane’s made a permanent home at Little Collins Street in the Melbourne CBD, and stretched beyond our Burmese inspiration to create a menu full of food as gloriously confounding as Burma – so the name is kinda perfect.

Bringing the lane inside

Everyone loves exploring hidden laneway restaurants and street markets in Asia – but for Melbourne, we’ve brought the street vibe inside. When you enter Burma Lane, you’ll be instantly wowed by the massive mural painted by renowned street artist, Mike Eleven. As a master of the aerosol can, Mike’s the fastest painter you’ve ever seen – you’ve got to be when you’re used to running from the police J. The restaurant is filled with the sights, sounds and most importantly smells of the open kitchen, so you can spy on the chefs and feed off their energy. Whether you’re out to impress your date, or you want to celebrate with all the crew, Burma Lane’s funky surrounds and exciting food will give you something to talk about.

“Took a couple of work colleagues here for dinner last night, one from out of town, the other a local who doesn’t venture into the city much. We all loved it, the food was magnificent and the service outstanding. We shared a number of dishes and all disappeared really quickly. It would be unfair to isolate any one dish because they were all really, really good. We had a couple of dishes from each of the “sizes” meaning we eventually shared about 6 – 7 dishes, a great way to get a real taste of the menu. My recommendation….Just Go!” | Trip Advisor
