Milky Lane falls into a more upscale burger joint category, and the prices reflect that. While the quality and creativity of the dishes are commendable, the higher pricing might deter budget-conscious diners.

These potential disadvantages are subjective and might not significantly impact everyone’s dining experience. Despite these factors, Milky Lane Elizabeth Quay continues to be a favoured Perth hotspot due to its fun vibe.

My Experience at Milky Lane Perth

Honestly, my visit was quite average, and it didn’t quite meet the high expectations I had built up. 

As soon as I walked into Milky Lane, the booming music immediately struck me. While I appreciate a lively atmosphere, the volume made it hard to have a conversation without raising my voice.

While the trendy decor initially caught my eye, it didn’t quite create the setting I had hoped for. The restaurant’s layout and the energetic crowd made it feel more like a bustling hangout spot than a place where I could relax. 

Moving on to the food, the burgers at Milky Lane were undeniably good. The flavours were delicious, and the unique combinations added an exciting twist to the classic burger experience.

I appreciated the attention to detail in the presentation, which matched the social media hype. However, the highlight I was most looking forward to—the milkshake—left me disappointed. After hearing rave reviews and seeing incredible photos, I expected an explosion of flavours and a milkshake that would blow my mind. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations, leaving me underwhelmed.

While my personal experience at Milky Lane was not exceptional, I understand that individual experiences can vary and different people have different preferences. It’s entirely possible that others will have a more positive and enjoyable time at the restaurant.

Ultimately, it’s important to approach any dining experience with an open mind, acknowledging that personal tastes and expectations significantly shape our perceptions. While my experience may have been average, I encourage others to visit Milky Lane and form their own opinions, as culinary experiences can often be subjective and influenced by various factors.

Who is Milky Lane for?

Milky Lane would suit a “socialite foodie” who thrives on being at the forefront of trendy dining destinations, seeking unique and Instagram-worthy culinary adventures to share with their followers.

This eatery is popular with families and a young crowd who enjoy the modern decor and loud music.
