For a suburb that is not too large, Prospect offers a decent range of places to eat with the main streets where restaurants are located being Prospect Road and Main North Road. Many of the places that we have tried are more like cafes than restaurants although Viet L'amour and Café Chennai do have restaurant-like ambience.
My favourite restaurant in Prospect is Muratti Cakes & Gateaux. While typically known for their cakes (which my whole family love), Muratti also offers a wide range of sandwiches and pastries for breakfast and lunch. Our favourite is their Steak Pie due to it having buttery pastry that complemented the succulent filling well.

Befitting its name, grilled dishes are the focus of Afghan Charcoal Kebab Village. This is my father's favourite restaurant in Prospect. We love to buy their food for takeaway because we know that whatever we can't finish would still taste good after sitting in the fridge for a couple of days. Our favourites from Afghan Charcoal are their Chicken Skewers and Half a Chicken Meal because the meats were juicy with a delicious char-grilled flavour. They had also recently expanded their meal to include other Afghan dishes if you do not feel like eating grilled foods.

My mother's favourite restaurant in Prospect is an Indian restaurant called Café Chennai. Their current location is a big step up from their previous place – it is much bigger and the ambience is cosy. Their Chicken Parota is one of the best we have tasted. Service at Café Chennai is also very efficient with food served to you quickly. There is a slighter long wait time for their Parotas but the staff would alert you to this before the order is confirmed.

Viet L'amour is a good place for lovers of Vietnamese cuisine. Some of their dishes are notable for using ingredients not normally used in Vietnamese cuisine. Their Traditional Rice in Hot Pot is a good dish to try, with a variety of ingredients accompanied with rice cooked in a clay pot.

The exterior may not look too impressive, but Shanghai Place Chinese Restaurant serves delicious Chinese food that is surprisingly popular with Westerners. One of the dishes we enjoyed was the Four Treasure Steamed Duck, consisting of duck cooked with four different types of meat and vegetables.

My favourite restaurant/eatery in Prospect is Sukh Sagar, previously reviewed in WN. It is inside the Foodland mall and serves Indian street food. The first time I went there, two Indian students got off the same bus and went there - always a good sign.
Murati do what they do brilliantly, but I don't do cakes and pastries, the other restaurants you've mentioned I haven't been to.
Shankers Indian restaurant on Prospect Road is fantastic for both dining in and takeaway. The interior is beautiful in a wonderful building. The waiters are wonderful with children.
Rose Garden Thai restaurant on Churchill Road. Have been going there for over 20 years and it never disappoints. It is a particular favourite of my daughter.
