Aunty Franklee is a fantastic and friendly restaurant. While one is already spoilt for choice in and around Russel St, Aunty Franklee is fast emerging as a real pearl. In just a short time it has become a great complement to the local dining scene, joining a number of iconic and unique locales nearby.

Billed as a Malaysian restaurant, with a 'hint of the East' throughout its entire Menu, Aunty Franklee is at its core best understood as a fusion restaurant.

While the cultural influences of Asia are seen across the menu, serving us wonderful dishes like lamb ribs, the offerings feature foods that've long been visible across the Australian dining scene.

It is understandable one may wonder at first what is unique about Aunty Franklee - sure it's great to have another restaurant but why is it special when we've already got similar ones around? But Aunty Franklee does well at making the classic new and fresh once more. After all, few restaurants offer you the chance to start your evening with a cup of 23 herbs broth, and conclude your main meal with a Chinese doughnut for dessert.

Another great example of this restaurant's unique appeal is its decor and overall presentation. Vivid, bright, and inviting across its space, soon after sitting down you'll note the menu is all on postcards, and first served up to visiting diners in a travel tin (like an old stationery box).

It takes a moment to get used to this idea, but the concept is remembered long after you've placed your order. It is the little touches, alongside a diverse menu of tasty fusion offerings, that makes Aunty Franklee a do-visit spot in the heart of Melbourne's CBD.

In turn, just as Aunty Franklee is a great destination on Russell St, so too are there a number of tremendous venues if you're still hungry, and nifty nightspots just a few minutes away for those who wish to have a hearty night on the town.
