HWKR FOOD CENTRE
The food was great! Love that you can order on your phone and the food comes to your table. Felt like i was in the future! Pretty great vegetarian options. Would love to check it out again, especially if they change up the menus!
Service staff were lovely but food was underwhelming when we went. We'll definitely give it another go once the 'pop up' options change.
The food that we had was great but it was disappointing that they stopped serving a majority of the menu from 3 of the vendors due to running out of produce. It was only 730pm and was about to get busy.
Fabulous experience, only complaint is that I ordered a beer through the messenger app and it took 30 mins to arrive and only after I inquired with a staff member. After that our food came out almost instantly.
It has a good ambiance and it’s a nice place to grab a lunch and catch up with friends.
Was craving for CKT for a few weeks. So decide to go with the ladies and tried out the CKT. I would recommend if u want CKT in Melb, give it a go. It does taste pretty similar to back home.
Very poor food. Do not dine at Indomie Warung. No value for money whatsoever and the food was bland and disgusting. The service from HWKR staff was OK although one of the restaurants smoked out the entire venue. I won't be going back.
Will go here again - Delicious food, drinks and dessert ! Awesome ambience and beautiful dessert! Service was quick and super efficient!
Brilliant. Go. Cheap. Tasty. Loved it. Great for a date or mates night out.
We came with a toddler and a baby so we weren’t sure if it would be a pleasant meal, but it was lovely, clean and spacious! I made a booking and requested a high chair and they gave us the perfect spot. Food was enjoyable and we liked the variety that we could choose from.
Bingsu was really good. Other options aren't so good.
The food is delicious and the staff are all very friendly. Would highly recommend!
Food was amazing! Wide variety and good options available! Definitely coming back for more!
Good food, good vibe and fast service
Service was good and everything about the food was good - except the serving sizes. Curries came with 2-3 small pieces if meat, and for what that cost, means it’s really poor value.
Sensational experience - can’t wait to go back. The food was wonderful and the staff were super helpful. I also loved the airy open space. Highly recommended
I would recommend HWKR based on previous experiences and food I have had there. The current pop-ups are a bit lacklustre. But fun concept & good for a dinner with friends.
Good concept and amazing ice cream would definitely recommend it to people needs a few more stalls and some more vegetarian and vegan options
Love hwkr awesome experience - service was onpoint, Food was yummy. Very recommended!
Fantastic concept, only downside was that spoons were awkwardly large. Hopefully the kitchens change every now and then, that’ll make me come back. A few Japanese inspired vending machines would be epic!
Great quality food for the price you pay. Plenty of seating. Fantastic service.
Staff were hospitable and friendly, food was really yummy and we were served quickly too! Loved the ambience of HWKR - will definitely return to have a fix of delicious Asian food!
Thanks for stopping by! We hope we see you soon for that HWKR fix ^_^
The food is ok (overpriced for the portion/presentation) but the overall ambience is a bit of a letdown. Plates were plastic which cheapened the meal, not to mention the only cutlery which was given to us was a fork and a spoon (a bit weird with my pokebowl and the sushi we were sharing) and since noone gave a care I went to hunt down chopsticks on my own - no soy sauce was available (I'm not sure if that's because they ran out or if that's always the case - noone cared to talk to me about it). Now that I write this I think maybe even 3 stars are generous. In a city full of awesome food - you can give this a hard pass.
The food was good, really liked it. But it was really busy and loud. We might not have gotten a seat if we hadn’t reserved through OpenTable.
The concept of this place is great. A bit disappointed with the fish meal I ordered at Rempah but I think it was a one off. Also tried the salmon Oshi at the modern eatery and that was delicious. But the real star was the matcha bingsu! Fantastic and will definetely be back for more Bingsu at scoopy milk bar! Over all I would recommended HWKR to others.
Great food. Very good variety. Highly recommend. Place open till late.
The food wasn't that great. The crispy squid ordered was very chewy and overcooked. Doesn't look fresh.
Other dishes ordered were below average. They look more fresh on the menu pics than when served.
Also the service was bad. We ordered 3 main but didn't receive them at the same time. There might have been almost 15mins wait between them. By the time we all got our main only the last one came was warm. The vegan curry was more like an onion curry. Not enough veggies. They give too much rice and very little curry for that price you pay.
I dont see the food we ordered from Rempah was good value for money.
In the past there have been more vendors that I wanted to try, but as long as scopy milk bar is there, I’ll always find a reason to keep coming back!
This place is so good that I'll come back again some time to enjoy the food and drinks provided even if their food changes every month or so.
Was a great place to have dinner after work with a friend, relaxed friendly atmosphere. Good service and delicious food that won’t break the bank. We’ll be back!
Went for an early dinner which is why I have given a low noise level. We manually ordered from one place and tried the app for another. I had to chase the order through the app because the store never saw it. Food was delicious and good value for money. Will go again when some new vendors come in.
Rempah is the best vendor there. Bookings are a must. A bit pricey especially if you buy food from different vendors. You don't know how much your meal really costs until you add them all up.
We are disappointed with the choice of dishes.
The size of serving has definitely shrunk. The cake 🍰 shop has disappeared 🤬
I came here months ago and it was alot more exciting, the service was alot nicer. I found the ambience very average as we were here for a birthday and it had been so hyped up beforehand.
Good service, food and drinks & just a generally nice atmosphere. Would definitely return.
Awesome, amazing food and great service
It was a great place to catch up with friends. Recommended to come on a non-busy day or not make a booking. Everything is simple with the use of facebook messenger to take our orders and make payments. I will definitely bring my parents from Singapore here when they miss local food (Malay and Indonesian) dishes. 10/10 will definitely come again!
This is only my second visit to the HWKR centre and I raved about it after my first visit. However today was incredibly disappointing. They used to have an app that you could order from but this app was no longer working, however they did have a messenger address and so I ordered some food via messenger (and paid). However the food never arrived. When I went up to the counter they said that their wifi was down - but no one had bothered to let the patrons now. There was an incomplete menu on the table and there were 5 of us at the table hence why I tried to order online. Runners kept bringing the wrong food to the wrong table and we ended up with a couple of pork rolls that we never ordered. The runner left so quickly they weren't even interested that it wasn't ours and so after 15 minutes of trying to get someones attention we ended up eating what was put down. What started as a great concept has rapidly gone downhill.
Service here is amazing, staff are all really nice and friendly.
Food is good, my only problem was with serving sizes (and considering the prices). The sizes were tiny! Barely filled us up.
Great friendly service and vibrant atmosphere. Definitely worth checking out if you are visiting Melbourne and even if you are a local as the vendors are always changing. A nice change to your typical dine-in setting without compromising quality of food - should definitely be on more 'Must See' lists for Melbourne.
