    Yes! Please make your reservation via our booking widget here.
  • Can we just walk-in?
    Yes walk ins are always welcome however during peak times (6:30—8:30pm) there may be more of a wait, so plan your time accordingly!
  • Eh, uncle, what’s cooking at Hopper Joint?
    Aiyo, we're all about that authentic Sri Lankan street food vibe. From crispy plain hoppers to the ultimate egg hoppers paired with mouth-watering curries and sambols. We have an incredible selection of ‘short eats’ and our desserts (BONUS) are pretty bloody good too!
  • Do you do Happy Hour?
    YES! It's HAPPY HOUR every day from 5pm—6pm. This is walk-in only, on our terrace and bar area (standing room only).
  • Bottomless hoppers, is it true?
    You can have as many PLAIN hopper refills as you like with your hopper set! Only ONE egg hopper is included in your main course ‘set’. Unlimited hoppers does not include our dessert Jaggery Hoppers.
  • Can dive in with hands or need to act posh with fork and knife, ah?
    Ha, no need to be posh here! Eating with your hands is the way to go. We even have a spot for you to wash up before and after, making it a proper Lankan experience.
  • Can I just come in for a drink?
    You're welcome to come in for a drink on the outside terrace or at our bar (standing room only) ….. unfortunately we don't have tables allocated just for ‘drinks’ due to the size of the dining room.
  • Got space for me and my cricket team to come hang out, uncle?
    Bring your favourite people! We love a lively crowd however due to our space, we can accommodate a maximum group size of 7 guests.
  • What if I can't handle too much spice, ah?
    Don’t worry, aunty. We’ve got you covered with mild options, and our team is always there to help you pick something that won’t have you running for water, or a shot of Toddy!
  • Parking scene how ah around Greville Street?
    Parking can be a bit of a puzzle, but there are spots around. Might have to do a little walk, but think of it as a mini adventure before tucking into some delicious hoppers! There is limited street side parking and Prahran Square is only 60 meters away and has plenty of ample of parking (paid parking).
  • We want to stay longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes, is this possible?
    We understand that some of you would like to have a more leisurely, longer dining time, if so book after 8pm and continue the hopper party all night!
  • You guys serving booze or sticking to soft drinks?
    A Sri Lankan party without booze? Absolutely not - we’ve put together delicious cocktails, wines and non-alcoholics, a mix to quench your thirst.
  • Can book for private party or what?
    Hopper Joint is not available for events or functions.
  • Can I bring the kids?
    Of course you can! We have a kids menu for children under 12 - however we do not have any room for a pram and do not have any high chairs.
  • Do you allow BYO cake?
    Unfortunately we do not allow any outside food or beverage. We have candles available for celebrations, let us know if you would like one arranged in your booking notes.
  • Can we split tables?
    We love a good party, but our little spot here in Prahran is a cozy one! We can only host up to seven guests per reservation. Splitting your group across multiple tables isn't allowed because it disrupts your party, our other lovely guests, and the flow of our service. So, gather your besties, make a single booking, and let’s keep the vibes harmonious for everyone.
  • Can I hold tables?
    We know coordinating with friends can be tricky, but holding multiple bookings is a bit of a pickle for us. We're a small biz, and when folks block off tables then cancel last minute, it throws our week into chaos. So, we kindly ask: chat with your mates, pick a date that suits everyone, and make just one reservation. This way, other guests can book their fav night too. Remember, every booking you make has a big impact on our little joint – let’s keep it mindful and respectful, yeah? Holding multiple tables means other guests might miss out on their preferred dates. And last-minute cancellations, especially for big bookings, can turn a fully booked week into a quiet one. So, be a champ and reserve with care. Your consideration helps us keep the hopper party going strong, every night!
  • Do you have disabled access?
    Yes we do! Please make a note of it in your reservation so we can do our best to assist you when you arrive.
