Introduction to Dempsey Hill: Dempsey, Minden, Loewen and Tanglin Village

TOP Dempsey Restaurants 2021 & Reviews

Tanglin Village is the collective description for the area which used to be the Central Manpower Base (CMPB), a group of buildings used for military’s administrative functions. We often refer to this area generally as the Dempsey Hill or Dempsey Road restaurants. Within the Village, there are separate clusters of buildings known as the Dempsey, Minden and Loewen clusters. We are most familiar with the Dempsey and Minden clusters as these are where most of the restaurants are located. The Loewen cluster (former Loewen Road camp) is slightly detached from the others (and therefore less visible to the casual visitor). It is a ten minute walk from PS Cafe. Its tenants include a few food outlets but are mostly retail and services such as Invictus International School, The Wagington Luxury Pet Hotel, Melbourne Specialist International School, Core Collective (Dempsey) and SWISH Swimming.

Information on Dempsey Restaurants

As restaurant details such as menus and opening hours often change, we recommend that you check with the restaurants for the current information.  Where available, we have provided links to the Chope reservation system for the respective restaurants. The spaciousness of the place with most restaurants on the ground floor of low buildings and free parking at Dempsey are two big attractions of dining at Dempsey. Reservations are recommended for weekends and even on weekdays for the popular restaurants.

This sign contains some information on the history of Dempsey Hill.
