Recently, Tim and I went for dinner at Ripples Seafood & BBQ Restaurant, a Chinese restaurant in Glenferrie Road, Malvern. This was our third visit to Ripples, and as ever, the food was good, but the service was a little indifferent.
Here is a glimpse of the interior of Ripples, bedecked with white tablecloths and fancy folded napkins:
Each time we have been to Ripples, we have ordered different things just for fun. They make a fine beef brisket, but we opted not to order it on this occasion.
For entrée, we ordered satay prawn skewers ($7.50) to share:
These were as delicious as they looked.
We ordered two mains to share with steamed rice. The first was BBQ pork with vegetables ($15):
The other dish was beef with ginger and spring onion ($15):
Both dishes were good to eat (though not spectacular) and healthy-ish. I hate ordering dishes without vegetables so both of these dishes satisfied my requirement for some greens.
On finishing our meal, we were served with a palate cleanser of a small fruit plate each.
Ripples is good value and serves decent food in close proximity to the Malvern Central shopping centre, but don't expect enthusiastic service.
