Harry's Bar & Restaurant located within Stamford Plaza Melbourne. They pride them self in using the freshest local produce and wines with International standard hotel cuisine at affordable prices.

I was invited by Stamford Plaza to have a taste of their current Succulent Prawns promotions. Executive Chef Ketan Seth created 4 succulent prawn dishes and presented them during the month of February. The bar and restaurant separated by a set of stairs, the bar it self was casual and the restaurant it self was slightly formal. The overall decorations was simple decorated with dark furnitures.

Our dinner experience starts with complimentary bread roll with butter. The bread was really warm, fluffy and soft inside. 

Complimentary chorizo with tomato salsa. It was the perfect beginning, a bite of flavourful chorizo with slight freshness from the salsa.

Mini Bucket of Prawns with cocktail sauce & garden salad ($26). The prawn was fresh, chilled and juicy. I personally love this dish, the freshness of the prawn mixed with the light sourness from the cocktail sauce, perfect to share with a glass of beer. This is certainly my favourite dish of the night.

Wasabi Prawn Cutlets  with avocado & tomato salsa ($24). I normally don't like wasabi but in this case it was okay, the wasabi was subtle but just enough to add the punching flavour to the prawn and salsa. This is my second favourite dish.

Creole Style Prawns with citrus chimichurri & garlic rice ($19). This dish is the most popular according to Harry's staff. It was clearly has an Asian influence to it, the prawn was cooked perfectly with punching oily flavour and the sauce mixed nicely with the garlic rice.

Garlic Prawn Linguini with chilli, tomatoes, spinach & rocket ($19). The linguini was really subtle compared to the last dish. This dish has been available for the room service at Stamford for quite some time.

Honestly, I think their service needed a little bit of improvement. They are friendly but lack in knowledge and attentiveness. Overall, it was a pleasant visit and I could not complain regarding the size and the freshness of the prawns. The promotions runs for limited time only and they will end by the end of February. If you are a big fan of prawns, what are you waiting for?
