Seamstress Restaurant & Bar


Seamstress Restaurant & Bar are now offering Seamstress @ home – ready to eat banquets with no fuss and no mess, or DIY dinner kits, which are 30 minutes of kitchen fun with an amazing packed full of flavour dinner to follow.

Seamstress Restaurant & Bar opened in 2007 in Melbourne’s historic Chinatown district, housed in a 120year-old former textile factory, warehouse and one-time Buddhist monastery.

Climb the rickety stairs escaping the bustle of the city street to our 50 seater dining room celebrating the merging of traditional pan-Asian ingredients with modern kitchen techniques. Our menu is all about shared dining enjoyed in a lively but casual social setting.

Conveniently located in the heart of Melbourne’s theatre district, Seamstress is the perfect venue for pre-theatre dinner. Whether joining in the dining room or a quick bite from their light dinner menu in the cocktail bar. Join them for a relaxed evening and they’ll be sure to get you to your show on time. Their dining room is open from 5.30pm Monday to Saturday to cater for pre-theatre diners visiting Her Majesty’s Theatre and The Melbourne Comedy Theatre, located literally 30 seconds walk away.
