Since 2001, Okra has blossomed from a local Camberwell gem to one of the greater Melbourne area’s premier dining destinations.
Okra blends Thai, Malaysian, and Indonesian dishes into an irresistible Southeast Asian fusion menu with something for everyone. Every dish is expertly hand-prepared by head chef Michael Tiu, and while our recipes may span a continent away, our ingredients are sourced locally to guarantee fresh, crisp flavor in every dish.
Dishes are generously portioned to allow them to be shared, and can be paired with our delicious house steamed rice. Every dish is balanced and varied in flavour, texture, and aroma to help create an unforgettable and unique dining experience.
Okra has been featured in The Age Good Food Guide every year since its inception, and continues to garner more press and critical accolades each year. We’re been profiled and featured in such publications as Lifestyle Food, AGFG, and Gault & Millau.
Conveniently located in the heart of Camberwell, we are open every day, except Monday, for lunch and dinner.
Our okra namesake was chosen for the qualities we wanted to inspire in our dining and our dishes; okra` is a superfood high in antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C, and more. Like the plant, the Okra restaurant is versatile and healthy, nutritious and elegant.
