Pondok Rempah is nestled in the crowded strip of restaurants in Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, just a step away from Queen Victoria Market. Established in 2016 by Cambodian-Australian, Ian Mok, thanks to Ian’s hard work, vision and the help of his talented team of Indonesian-born chefs, Pondok Rempah has become one of Melbourne’s best Indonesian restaurants.
As the first Indonesian street-food seller in Melbourne, we continue to offer easy quick-eats to take away, as well as sit-down casual dining options. From the moment you walk through the door, you will be transported by the sights, tastes and smells of our fragrant, flavoursome and vivacious dishes. We aim to create a warm and welcoming environment for everyone, and our clientele includes everyone from Indonesians looking for a taste of home to students looking for cheap food in Melbourne, white-collar workers looking for a quick bite to eat, locals and tourists. Make yourself at home in our inviting and inclusive restaurant that has menu items to cater to everyone. Our menu has a variety of vegetarian and gluten-free options and all the meat used in our kitchen is halal.
It is our mission to provide Melbourne with the most authentic Indonesian flavours, and we endeavour to provide the perfect Indonesian hospitality.
