Salero Kito – Authentic Halal Padang Cuisine in Melbourne

nasi padang melbourne

Salero Kito is a halal restaurant specializing in Indonesian Padang cuisine that you wish you’d discovered earlier. The deliciousness of this region’s dishes has already taken it across the archipelago and over to Australia, but now they’re right here at home!

The Padang cuisine from the Indonesian province of West Sumatra is delicious and has been taken across the archipelago. Some of the famous Padang cuisines are nasi Padang and rendang beef, both delicious!

Padang restaurants are recognizable by the myriad of plates – think beef rendang, chili eggplant, curried fish, potato patties, and sambal- stacked up behind shopfront windows or on tables.

Australian regulations won’t allow such stacking, so husband and wife owners Afdal Utama and Tika Kartini have adapted visuals to place dishes in bain Marie behind glass for customers to see their food cooking away!

Tripadvisor Reviews

“Resurrection Indo Buffet
After this awful 2020 I entered Tivoli Arcade to find half shops empty and for lease.
Depression lifted as found my journey goal: Salerno Kito open for lunch.
Rice, chicken curry, beef rendang, plus beef with veg soup. Yummy.
Enjoyed on airy outside tables. Friendly service. Delicious quality Indo food.”

“Indo Alfresco Yummo
Having been a fan of another Bain Marie Indo food in Melbourne for two decades I was delighted to discover this gem at rear of Tivoli arcade. 3 meat & rice = $13. Cracking value. Beef rendeng, beef stew and curried chicken dished but smiling chap. Bonus enjoyment in fresh air communal table of rear laneway. Yes this first timer shall return.”

“Simply the best Padang food in Melbourne. If this resto were in Indonesia, I would only give 3 stars though as the dish selection was very minimal here.”

“Love their authentic food, unusual, offal and all. Opposite Victoria Hotel, perfect for a takeaway for lunch, plenty left for dinner too. Great value. Looking forward to more.”
