There are Indian restaurants all over Australia, and indeed, it isn’t hard to find somewhere that’ll serve up a spicy curry at any time of the day. What Rook are offering out in Geelong, however, has very little to do with the standard kind of curry house. Instead they provide an entry point to Sri Lankan cuisine, with specialities from the former Ceylon fused with Australian classics – not a normal combination, we’ll grant you, but bear with us and we’ll explain why a trip to Rook Sri Lankan Fusion is always worth your while. They’re easily located on Malop Street in the very heart of Geelong city centre, and when you arrive you’ll be met with a menu of curries, of course, but also egg hoppers – fermented rice flour crepes, shaped into a bowl and filled with spicy sambal, dhal, chicken or fish – and proper Aussie breakfasts. They grind all their own spices (and sell them too, so you can take them home) making a trip to Rook even more memorable. Book a table now head in for a feed.
Amazing food and wonderful service. Really, really enjoyed our first visit to Rook. We will definitely be back. Up there with one of the yummiest meals I've had... so many flavours and textures. The banana leaf special with numeric rice, lamb, cashews, chilli and eggplant was divine!!!!!
I give this restaurant a 10 out of 6 because it was so excellent. I am a seasoned chef having worked and travelled around the world and found this a delicious. Customer service was excellent too. Thank you Rook.
Awesome Sri Lankan food, great service, delicious pan rolls and hoppers made to perfect. Curries were delicious, wood apple drinks were refreshing, will be bavk
Delicious food, great value, friendly service. I've been here a few times before and have not had one bad experience yet. Staff are accomodating to your diet and not pushy, and can offer recommendations if you're unsure. Great to have such a range of vegan options as well :)
Our table was well looked after and we enjoyed our food immensely. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and were keen to make sure we were happy with our food. We will certainly be going back to experience more of this lovely restaurant.
Fantastic staff, very attentive. Explained the menu very well and even showed us photos of what we were ordering. Food was delicious and the serving sizes were quite large. Keen to get back and try the breakfast and lunch menu!
Great food, service and environment. Highly recommend. If you want what I have just described head on down to Rook for an experience you won't regret!
Service was excellent. Food was delicious and well presented. Although it seemed a little expensive for a little bit of meat and a lot of rice. Id still recomend it though.
Very pleasant place with friendly and knowledgable staff. A nice find in Central Geelong. We will go back again soon. Lovely family that run it.
