Melbourne CBD, Melbourne, Victoria

Price: $$$$ - $$$$
Asian, Bar snacks


Tucked away on Little Collins St in Melbourne's CBD lies a dining adventure of refined modern cuisine in a cosy space known as Aru. No detail is overlooked, with Aru designed using light timber furnishings and an impressive wooden fireplace. The narrow dining space brings diners close to the action looking on into the bustling theatre of the open kitchen. Details are what also make the dishes look like art on the plate. Experience combinations like Moreton Bay Bug, blistered tomato with native curry, and the scorched pavlova with cream for something sweet.
