This leafy canteen holds a special place on the list because not only do they serve up great Thai fusion, but go the extra mile with accessibility built into the restaurant’s $2 million renovation. Bang Bang’s online functions kit even includes a useful map for pre-visit research, detailing the locations of ramp access, accessible toilet, types of seating, and weather protection for this indoor/outdoor crowd-pleaser.
Melbourne’s restaurant scene does a lot of things right, but wheelchair accessibility isn’t always one of them. With our fêted laneway culture comes uneven cobbled lanes, narrow or nonexistent footpaths, tiny holes-in-the-wall, and venues hidden up flights of stairs… It’s not great if you’ve got wheels or limited mobility. We’ve compiled a list of the ten best accessible restaurants in Melbourne, with a side-order of five accessible bars we think you’ll enjoy. Every venue listed here includes an accessible toilet, naturally.
