About us


Drums have been around for quite a while. Since 1996, in fact.

Born in the vibrant heart of Melbourne at the Queen Victoria Market, Drums emerged as a culinary haven. Specializing in Sri Lankan and Indian cuisine, our mission is to share these brilliant flavors with locals and global visitors alike. With over two decades of dedication, we've witnessed significant growth, expanding our operations to create an ever-growing taste legacy.

Come on over and try out our uber-popular Kottu Roti and the delightful Lamprais

We have always had an affinity for Asian cuisine. The exotic tastes of spices and breathtaking aromas make the food unique and appealing. If you’re looking to experience this genuine asian cuisine, Drums is here to serve you. From Lamprais, to Naan, Kottu, Paratha, and a whole host of other dishes, Drums is the best place for Asian food in Melbourne.

Over the years, we have also been involved in a multitude of food markets and festivals. We have attended the International Street Food Festival at the Melbourne Showgrounds as well as the Summer and Winter Wednesday Night Markets at the Queen Victoria Market. Our unique concept of serving Sri Lankan style street food is always a big hit among the crowds.
