I was walking around Flinders Lane in melbourne looking for a good place to eat with my colleague. We discounted some of the places and casting my eye down an alley on the side saw Coda. Venue in a basement, low lights. A bar and both high tables and lower ones. We didn’t have a reservation but were given a seat at the bar.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Bartender suggested a couple of good gins and helped us order. This is a french vietnamese place, and it is likely you will recognise very little on the menu. There are dishes of varying sizes. From the one bite ones around $10 to the mains at $35-45. The sides are around $10 as well.
The dishes are full of flavor. Portions of the mains are generous and you can share those. Side dishes were also generous. We had the Barramundi which was excellent and the Java curry which was creamy and rich. As a side we had the cauliflower and the beans with tofu. The only fault i could find with the meal was the tofu being very dry.
A great meal overall and definitely recommended if you are after an innovative cuisine.
